For the sake of my own intelligence, I decided not to watch the President reiterate and regurgitate his progressive, futile agenda last night during his sixth State of the Union address. What more can be he possibly say that needs to be uttered into my ears? Besides, Landreaux fell on the sword so the rest of us could walk away unscathed.
Distrust of the federal government, and government in general, is at an all-time high and Americans are pretty certain that the only being worth trusting resides in the heavens above. The President rolled out some props, as is the case every year, to help personalize his push to overhaul our nation’s founding. No offense to the props, so long as they know they’re simply tools in the game of progressive politics.
Arguably the most heinous argument from the President is the nonsensical claim that increasing unemployment benefits will create some kind of measurable economic growth. Please explain to me, using basic math, how sucking money from the private economy on the backs of working Americans and giving it to Americans unable to find work creates some kind of economic foundation to build on. Keep in mind, we have record numbers of Americans out of work as a direct result of President Barack Obama’s destructive economic policies.
The solution to creating economic growth is not wealth redistribution, as the President argued to “Joe the Plumber”. The solution is to foster policies which let individuals lift themselves out of poverty and into the middle class because they’re able to find better paying jobs.
I am, however, tired of making this argument since it’s been the same for six long years. At this point, all we can do is point and stare at the mind-boggling destruction Keynesian economic policy levels on everything it touches.
I can only hope that Tuesday’s State of the Union address was the “last hurrah” for the President and his minions like Harry Reid and the entire staff and on-air “talent” of NBC News. True, the President has vowed to use his pen to continue enacting swift justice against the American people but how far can he truly go without significant opposition as his position weakens? Unfortunately, with the current leadership vacuum on the Republican side, that remains to be seen.
I’m glad I skipped the State of the Union. Most of the statements the President said were lies or don’t compute with basic math so what is there to gain by listening? The arguments are tired, the tactics are the same, the results are disastrous. Next President, please.
