Crossroads takes a red pen to Obama's SOTU excerpts

In short, this is what the SOTU might sound like if Obama were being honest about the State of the Union instead of kicking off his re-election campaign:

EMBARGOED: Excerpts of the President’s State of the Union Address
“Think about the America within our reach: A country where college graduates can't find jobs A country that leads the world in educating its people.  An America with 769,000 fewer manufacturing jobs An America that attracts a new generation of high-tech manufacturing and high-paying jobs.  A future where we veto real, accessible sources of energy within our own continent A future where we’re in control of our own energy, and our security and prosperity aren’t so tied to unstable parts of the world.  An economy in decline, where unemployment has been above 8% for nearly 36 months, and influence gets you stimulus money An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded. “
“….The defining issue of our time is how to keep that promise alive.  No challenge is more urgent.  No debate is more important.  We can either settle for a country where the middle class has been in decline over the last three years, while bureaucrats are getting fatter salaries and benefits packages We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by.  Or we can restore an economy where everyone pays higher taxes, there are fewer jobs, less innovation and the government distributes wealth through crony Keynesianism. Or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.  What’s at stake is the future of my campaign. What’s at stake are not Democratic values or Republican values, but American values.  We have to reclaim them.” 
“As long as I’m President, I will work with anyone in this chamber to build on this momentum as long as this requires no actual meetings.  But I intend to shred the constitution fight obstruction with action, and I will blame the current situation on my predecessor oppose any effort to return to the very same policies that brought on this economic crisis in the first place.
Instead we will continue on a path where the government chooses winners and losers, and usually chooses poorly. No, we will not go back to an economy weakened by outsourcing, bad debt, and phony financial profits.  Tonight, I want to speak about how we move forward, and lay out a blueprint for an economy that’s built to fail last – an economy built on Chinese American manufacturing, foreign American energy, unemployment skills for American workers, and a decline renewal of American standing in the world values.”
“Let’s never forget:  Millions of Americans who work hard and play by the rules every day are unemployed in record numbers, to the point that they’re dropping out of the labor force deserve a government and a financial system that does the same.  It’s time to apply the same rules from top to bottom:  No bailouts, no handouts, and no copouts. [Pause for laughter.] An Administration America seeking to perpetuate its power built to last relies upon insists on empty rhetoric and lofty speeches to manufacture hope while failing to deliver change responsibility from everybody.”
