My Thoughts on Obama's State of the Union!
~~He started off blaming Bush
~~He said that the worst of the financial storm had passed. Really, then why is unemployment at 10%?
~~He gave numerous lectures on how there should be less partisanship. This coming from a man who supported a health care bill being drafted with no input by any Republican legislators.
~~He repeats his infamous lines of bashing banks and Wall Street. He needs to read McClanahan's article, Fannie, Freddie Lit Match for our Conflagration.
~~He then starts talking about forcing banks to give loans to small businesses. Uh, isn't that what got us into this financial mess in the first place? And why is the government involved at all?
~~Cheer Line~~He says he wants to eliminate the capital gains tax. If he actually does this, I will be impressed.
~~He is going through a laundry list of things he wants to do. How exactly is he going to do any of them if he can't even get health care passed with Democrats controlling both houses of Congress?
~~His condescending attack on those of us who don't believe in man-made global warming. Recently it came to light that a lot of the global warming data is false and more and more scientists don't buy into it. Yet, in his speech to the entire country Obama thought it was a good idea to attack all of us, rather than get his facts straight.
~~It was 45 minutes into his speech before he even brought up the subject of heath care.
~~He is still repeating this ridiculous line that the Health Care bill will reduce the deficit. That is beyond absurd, you don't add a HUGE government program and decrease the deficit.
~~Obama has already spent an insane amount of money but he now wants everyone else to tighten their belts.
~~He mentions using common sense, that is ironic because thats exactly what was missing
~~Obama attacks a decision made last week by the Supreme Court. Alito shakes his head and mouths "not true". I'm glad, its hard to see all of the justices sitting there not able to say anything.
~~At the end he had the nerve to threaten the Republicans about the 60 vote majority. Are you kidding me? After all the hell that Democrats put us through not approving our judges during Bush's presidency.
~~He waited an hour to talk about the wars and the war on terror.
Dave Helling asked for my comments on the speech, and I was quoted in his article in the KC Star.
