Can you back anything up with a deeper analysis--be more specific, show us you really understood what the President said. Show the 'bashing Bush' language and explain why it was not a fair criticism of policy.
Give us example of "lies" -- please include links to fact checks or evidence.
Your vague and meaningless talking point posts continue to back up what I believe to be the truth about you.
tax cuts do take away government power
without adequate revenues the government would not be able to defend our nation
without adequate revenues the government would not be able to offer assistance to those who are without the ability to care for themselves
without adequate revenues the government would be unable to educate our next generation to assure we remain globally competitive
without adequate revenues the government government would be unable to install, maintain and replace critical infrastructure essential to the economic life of our nation
what seems lost on those in the reich wing is that to once again realize a revenue surplus would be a good thing, so that we could show the world our economic house is in order and thus preserve the integrity of the US dollar. and this is vitally important. no one on these boards was around when the dollar was not the dominant international currency. few seem to have an appreciation for the massive advantage that currency domination gives our nation. our present economic strife will be nothing compared to what we will go thru if confidence in the dollar is lost. that $100 bill we print for a few pennies yields a huge equity - and a huge international economic advantage ... an advantage which will be forever lost if the profligate spending of the democrats AND republicans does not come to an end. that inappropriate spending includes the giving of tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires at a time when we have to borrow money from other nations to operate our government's essential functions
President Obama's Sputnik moment nose-dives - Abby Phillip - POLITICO.comPresident Barack Obama anchored his State of the Union address with a call for increasing investments in areas such as education, infrastructure and innovation — targeted spending he said would help create jobs and strengthen the country while the administration also tackled ballooning budget deficits.
He spoke in epic terms as he described America’s challenge to “win the future” after a period of economic turmoil.
“This is our generation’s Sputnik moment,” Obama said in January. “We know what it takes to compete for the jobs and industries of our time. We need to outinnovate, outeducate and outbuild the rest of the world.”
But in recent weeks, Republicans have shifted the conversation in an entirely different direction. Instead of talking about small increases to select programs, Washington is preoccupied with preserving existing programs from cuts at every turn.
As Obama celebrated the budget compromise he struck with Republicans, the soaring Sputnik rhetoric had vanished. Instead, he emphasized programs that Democrats had “protected” from GOP cuts.
“Beginning to live within our means is the only way to protect those investments that will help America compete for new jobs,” Obama said last week. “We protected the investments we need to win the future.”
the slasher's sadsack sotu was only last january
america has never seen a chief exec routinely drop his stated agenda, as put forth in his yearly address, so regularly and quickly
in 2010, before barack hussein became the slash, his sotu priorities included his bank tax, his spending freeze and, of all things, his debt commission whose recommendations he still appears not to have read
within days, he'd dumped em all
he has the attention span of a teen
this year, it was all wtf, win the future---what became of that
it's all in the same dustbin with his 2012 budget proposal published in february
which beats 2011's, never written or submitted by the party still in power
does he really believe we weren't watching
the point is---the slasher's recent class warfare and hate the rich rhetoric will be dropped as fast as the bank tax
since he can't put up, ie, since harry won't be able to hustle anything hard or real, the slash will soon be forced to shut up
and so here we are, just where we were before the slash's pusillanimous politicizing of our planetary problems
green energy, infrastructure, obamacare and hate your neighbor
