But he did outline when the spending freeze would occur (FY2011) and what general programs would continue to receive funding - Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security and defense. The only lie here is those who wish to trump this issue up as if the spending freeze were happening today.[*]Says there's a spending freeze, but it's not actually frozen.
I find this hypercritical of you (Republicans) considering how you've claimed from day one when the ARRA was signed that job creation came primarily from small businessness and not big corporate giants. Furthermore, I don't recall him saying he wouldn't tax big businesses, but rather that some of them, i.e., big oil, won't be getting tax cuts anymore...least not on his watch. And what's wrong with government job creation? I happen to work for the state; my salary though not big is atleast paying the bills.[*]Says business is the engine for job growth, but wants to tax large businesses and let the government "create" jobs.
Just because you have a majority doesn't mean that majority will agree with you all the time. If it does, the opposition will claim one party is running rough-shot over the other which is already the Republican's sob story rallying cry. If it doesn't, you complain that the majority had the "power" to do more. No, my friend. What any president truly wants is biparticianship. This way both sides win.[*]Says Republicans blocked him from doing anything but he's had a filibuster proof majority...
You've quoated him out of context. What he said was he wanted this country's economy and businesses to be as roburt and forward thinking as other countries like Germany and China. Big difference!Did no one else think it was strange when he openly stated that he wants the US to have a government led economy like Germany and China?
This I really can't speak on because I don't fully grasp the SC case towhich he was referring, but as I understand it he wasn't too far off the mark. Still, I'll leave this issue alone since I don't understand the details of it fully.Did no one else think it was strange that he threw respect for separation of powers in the sewer and publicly embarrassed and intimidated the supreme court justices?
Here again, Republicans complain about the President's "wild spending" yet when he sets an initiative to halt spending you don't support it. Talk about talking out' the side of your neck?Did no one else think it was strange that he said we can't freeze spending even though we have a deficit, then told the Republicans "that's how you budget", as if spending money you don't have is basic household finance?
And? Here again is a laughable complaint by Republicans. You want job creation but complain at every attempt to pull jobs back from abroad. You can't have it both ways. Either you want him to do something to bring jobs back to this country or you don't. Which is it? Companies who base their headquarters here in the US yet continue to send more and more jobs abroad that could be employing people right here should be punished. But again, you can't have it both ways.He says he wants to punish businesses for sending jobs overseas, he should punish government for sending jobs overseas by taxing, supporting labor unions and enforcing unneccessarily strict regulations.
Then you're just another partician hack who preferred to keep his ears closed instead of truly listening. Even my wife, who's a Republican, listened attentively and thought his SOTU speech was very well done. BTW, he did speak on the terrorism issue, i.e., the Christmas Day bombing attempt....or did you fall asleep on that part?Overall, worst state of the union ever. Disingenuous, disrespectful, stupid and full of excuses for not actually doing anything in an entire year with total control of government. Not to mention 0 minutes spent on terrorism. Did I miss an Al Qaeda surrender or something?
