Instapundit takes National Review's Mark Steyn's observation a bit further about Obama passing edicts on his royal subjects as goals for Americans to accomplish
Obama is deluded. He and his wonks say popular things like “Raise the minimum wage!” even though they know it makes unskilled workers worse off.
The concept of the word “goal” has been perverted ever since “goal” was made into a synonym for “quota.” Leave to the Affirmative Action president to come up with the usage in this speech.
To be fair to Obama, this trend has been ongoing for decades.

I have heard that historically the average life span of a republic is about 250 years. Guess we’re on the downside if the situation continues as is.
Our Republic may be two and a third centuries old, but that's moot.
He won't understand because he ain't from 'round here.
