SOTU…And the Wingdizzie

25 Jan

Good speech tonight by President Obama. Good response also by the Republican side.

Then the was the clown show, by Michelle Bachman which CNN carried.

The key earth shaker in the speech was Obama’s plan to restructure the Federal Government. This was an interesting move, and basically a statement that Obama would (finally) begin utilizing the apparatus of the Federal Government to accomplish his goals. It also means the bloated infrastructure developed under the Bush Administration is going to get torn down – moving us back to a Clinton style small lean federal  government.

He said the corruption is a target – I think that is a serious warning to the miscreants, in Congress, in politics, in Wall Street, and in the Banks.

Would have liked to see him take on the gun lobby.

But overall – President Obama moved the dime in his direction.

    David Plouf (sp?) was interviewed briefly on NBC and said that the President will be speaking to the gun issue separately. In a way, I think it’s good he didn’t speak to gun laws in his speech. I think the wounds were too fresh.

    …as far as the official Republican response is concerned, the last half was a flurry of talking points and inaccuracies. Same ole’ same ole.

    Didn’t watch crazy Michelle Bachman’s response – although she did stop to answer a few questions. Even a republican commenter said it was about her and little else.

    Yes,GOP’s Keynesians build up of the government;
    great tatic to show how the GOP bloated the government, even under the theme of national defense.
