Mr. President, it's time to face the music and help America to do the same. This Wednesday evening, you will give your State of the Union speech. And millions upon millions of us are wondering whether you will sugarcoat the truth again

ó whether you will pad your performance over this past year or confess that the plans and path Washington is taking are plummeting our country deeper into the abyss.

If you convey the real status of the union, then you must confess that we are truly no better off (and much worse off in many respects) than we...
Youíve perfected Chicago-style politics in Washington to get your way and demonize anyone who dares to stand in opposition. Despite how many Tea Parties, protest rallies, town hall meetings, Washington marches, Internet inquisitions and Scott Brown-type elections there have been, you continue to deny that any opposition represents any viable resistance or consensus against your presidency.

Mr. President, your presidency is flailing. Your plan is failing. Your popularity is faltering. Our union is falling apart. We are not better off than we were a year ago, and itís time to quit pretending we are. It isnít helping our country to present false hope. It is an audacity of denial. The truth isnít ďyes, we canĒ; itís ďno, you havenít.Ē
