With Detroit in its death throes, he claimed the city "is coming back." He praised his "strong cities" initiative under which mayors like Detroit's David Bing are "downsiz(ing)" by cutting services for thousands of residents.

He claimed he and Republicans are working together "to solve our problems," when, in fact, everything they've exacerbated them. 

Overall, he had the audacity to suggest he's helping working Americans when his policies increased poverty, unemployment, hunger, despair and anger about political Washington's indifference to their growing misery.

For the fourth time, Obama's Thursday address to Congress will explain policy measures similar to past failed ones.

As a result, expect harder than ever hard times ahead with working Americans left increasingly on their own, sink or swim because neither Obama or Congress give a damn enough to help them.
