I was in the midst of writing a blog post about tonight’s “address” (or shall we call it another political campaign speech?) when I received the text of Michele Bachmann’s remarks. I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Tonight the President under the veil of one of the most sacred deliberative forums, a joint session of Congress, delivered another political speech where he doubled down on more of the same policies that are killing the economy.
Mr. President, what among your proposals was new? What here hasn’t already been tried and failed before?
While the President’s speech comes on the heels of a trillion dollars of failed stimulus, bailouts, and temporary gimmicks aimed at creating jobs, the President continued to cling to the idea that government is the solution to creating jobs…
These are not good times for the American people. Our patience for speeches, gimmicks and excuses has run out.
