President Obama’s State of the Union will be less than inspirational, focusing on a tax-and-spend agenda he knows won’t get through the GOP-controlled Congress.
That’s the summation of our predictions about the speech over at Right Wisconsin, which posted the expectations of commentators from around the state.
Ironically, I sarcastically proposed President Obama would suggest one of America’s goals should be to land men on Mars. He actually did – but only to add a veneer of aspiration to the lefty litany.
The president spent much of the speech doing two things: 1 – Proposing a laundry list of liberal policies he knows we can’t afford like free community college; and 2 – Lecturing Congress about dysfunction. By issuing veto threats and challenging the GOP to oppose his smoke-and-mirrors “Middle Class Economics,” he’s setting up the very same dysfunction he complained about.
This president has a Jekyll-and-Hyde duality, one side for public consumption and the other that hates the GOP with a passion.
