State of the Union

Is it just me, or did Obama just make a ton of promises that we can’t pay for? In his State of the Union address, Obama laid out all these grand plans for creating jobs and being the US we used to be. All these ideas are great ideas for when we have money to implement them. Myself, I’d just focus on paying down the country’s outlandish debt.

Obama even said in his speech that the American people wouldn’t think much of his proposals because we’ve lost faith in government. For me, it’s lost faith in government and Obama himself. I think Obama could have been a good president if he had followed through with half of his campaign promises, but I can see now that he is an idea guy, not an action guy.

A lot of the ideas he proposed are designed to fail, the parties would never agree on the issues and it’d be dead in the water, leaving Obama looking like he tried his best. He said over and over, get me this bill and I’ll sign it right away. It’s a good political move, but I think we need to worry less about re-election and more about the economy.

PS-Did anyone else notice the end? The standard ending is “The state of our Union is strong.” Obama side-stepped it and said, “As long as we’re joined in common purpose, as long as we maintain our common resolve, our journey moves forward, our future is hopeful, and the state of our Union will always be strong.”

  1. Yeah, let’s just continue to let our country crumble. We’re finished so what the hell.
