On Tuesday President Obama twisted and contorted the truth like he was Gumby. In one part of his State of the Union speech he called for a spending freeze, which by the way he did last year and look where that has gotten us. The presidents proposed freeze in government spending amounts to a whopping $40 billion per year which is probably close to what we pay for office supplies every year. Then later in the speech he called for major investment (spending) to repair our crumbling infrastructure; so which one is it? A freeze or spending?
I guess in the presidents eyes, America is a third-world country along the lines of El Salvador, who he plans to negotiate a trade agreements with. Im sure that will be of great benefit to the United States since El Salvadors GDP is a whopping $22.3 billion per year. To put that in perspective, the City of Houston, where I live has a GDP of more than $440 billion per year. Way to go Mr. President, you are quite the statesman.

If it did work...if he really believed big government and socialism work, there is a way to proving it to the world and to the voters.
Sell it to the states. Let the states bloat their governments and socialize their economies. If socialism works...if government can really identify those "investments" needed to create strong economies, prove it at the state level.
If socialism is such a winning concept, citizens will be stepping all over themselves to move into successful socialistic states. We will be lining up to move to Vermont and California.
But of course, socialism doesn't work...hence it must be implemented behind closed doors and using dishonest methods and against the will of the people.
As Putin and Castro have told Obama...socialist is a bust. Give it up Obama...let it go!
One could say, "what speech".
Rep. Ryan, on the other hand....WOW!
Okay, I’ve heard some of it now, and I understand why no one watched it. Sarah is right as usual, ...WTF?
Listening to a speech from BOzo can be challenging.
