I, along with millions of others, suffered through an hour long display of arrogant delusion Obama subjected the American public on Tuesday night. Just what did we learn as a result of this pointless annual ritual of a pep rally we call the State of the Union address?
We learned that our president has not gotten the message the electorate sent in November. He has not repented his deeply held beliefs that a benevolent, ever larger central government is the key to our ills. We learned that the new name for government spending is investment in a whole array of areas from rapid transportation to renewable energy - never mind that Amtrak and exisiting solar and wind energy projects have never attained economic viability - ever - anywhere in the world.
Going by the fact that he uttered 4,025 words, or 35 minutes, before mentioning the word debt and his apparent insistence on freezing spending at current levels ($1.5 trillion annual deficits) as well as cutting discretionary spending by $40 billion a year (1/40th of current and projected annual deficits), we learned that he still intends to bankrupt America, which he sees as root of evil and social injustice in the world.
I could go on and on, but let it suffice to say that, above all, we learned that a leopard does not change its stripes no matter how the corrupt media may want to portray it. Now, I can rest assure that he will be a one term failure of a president.
