'Win the future' wins the headlines

President Obama implored the American people during Tuesday's State of the Union speech to "win the future." The catchy slogan and its equally catchy cousin "The future is ours to win" were repeated six times during the night, so it's only natural that newspapers across the country splashed the phrase across their front pages.

Below are a few of the more than 40 papers in the U.S. alone that printed Obama's call to action (thanks to the Newseum for their amazing collection of front pages!):

Obviously, it's a winning slogan. Even Newt Gingrich thinks so. In fact, Gingrich named his 2005 book "Winning the future," as Gawker points out.

Obooboo has a lot to say now that elections times are getting closer but the truth is he is trying to do a lot of things that he really doesn't care as far as to what they are because he knows fuly well he will not get back in again and he knows it.He could have started a program long agao to start fixing our country's crumbling infrastructure which would have put thousands or more back to work providing they left out the neighbor work rpogram and kept the work strictly for our people and not to those in other country's.He has had the answer to fix not only the deficit but also the s.s. fund permanantly among other things that need funding right there in fron ot him all along and that is legalizing marijuana for th whole country let alone for medicinal use .This alone would rid the country of it's deficit within 2 years tops going by projected tax revenuse it would bring in although most thing it ould bringh in much more than that projectd.It would put a big drop in drug related crimes as study's have show that in coutry's that have legalized it or tolerate it's use have found also it dropped the number of teens using it significantly as well.Would bring in many jond to our people as well.Would also take care of all of the staes that are crying bankruptcy as well.Adults polled have stated that they prefer the feeling they get from using pot over that of drinking so there's another plus.All in all it is the perfect fix it for all of our financial woes and other drug related problems as well.This 1 state at a time thing for medicinal use is costing mega millions or billions when we all know fully well that all states are gonna end up legalizing it for at least medicinal use.Make it a governmant mandat that it is legal for the whole country for t least medicinal use as total legalization will follow closley behind that.No the carterls from mexico are not going to stom the country robbing nd killing either,that is nothingmore than the usual gov propoganda machine much as the "gateway" drug line of BS is.The only peopel our country has to contend with are the many gangs in this country that have been allowed to run rampant here.Instead of fighting overseas and wasting time,money and lives for an unwinablw ar we need to be fighting the gangs in this country and ridding oursleves of them many of which are illegals as well
