The State of the Union

I decided not to watch the State of the Union because I felt like it would be a waste of my time. One of my Facebook friends said, Matt you are politically inclined I should of saw some commentary from you by now.

Right now I am going to go read the speech from our president, one that I did not vote for even though he is still our president I am going to find out if playing video games all night was actually a better alternative instead of watching this speech.

First, there was a message about coming together. However we are still polarized from Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid force feeding the health care bill whether if you like it or not, if you wanted to take Gavin Newsom’s infamous quote that the traditional values folks appropriated off of him. Then we also have Keith Olberman and Rush Limbaugh also spreading the fires of polarization as well that do not make the political culture rather healthy indeed.

The American people do want solutions, but we do not want the starving of government nor we need the expansion of government like what happened for the last two years. We already spent almost 1 trillion dollars and unemployment is still high and our president wants us to spend more money. This makes the president’s argument rather weak.

What the president did in the past was how the American public ended up borrowing under their mortgages to buy cars, vacations and big screen tv’s and then ended up sinking underwater because they bit more than they could chew.

Anyways, I do see common ground with the high priestess of the Tea Party Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann about economic policy, but the majority of the Tea Party caucus would like to treat the people who are different than them like crap and that would not expand their outreach with young people or people like me. I feel like I want to slam a cream pie from Marie Calendars on her face, like what they did to Anita Bryant.

I just wish Congressman Jim Jordan and Michelle Bachmann could just stick towards fiscal issues only, else I might end up helping to elect President Obama in 2012 if their big government intervention on social issues working to eliminate personal liberty and freedom comes to plan.

  1. I didn’t watch any of the three speeches – I watched the Lakers instead.

    For better or worse, Michelle Bachmann has out-Palined Palin. Palin’s strategy to win is to do what Ronald Reagan (and Jimmy Carter) did, and what Ron Paul tried to do – namely, position herself as the “outside the Beltway” candidate that is also outside of the establishment of her own party. Bachmann has stolen Palin’s thunder in this regard.
