Obama to promise entitlements, not economy invigoration, in State of the Union Address

Obama to promise vote pandering entitlements, not real economy invigoration that would put out of work Americans back to work, in his upcoming “Fate” of the Union Address.

That should boost his disapproval numbers. 😉

The private sector job creators need help, Obama, but It looks like that is beyond your Socialist Scope… Above your Presidential pay-scale.

washingtonpost.com

Previewing key themes of his upcoming address to the nation, Obama unveiled initiatives to help the middle class by making it easier for people to care for dependents, repay student loans and save for retirement.

  • nearly doubling the child and dependent care tax credit for families making under $85,000 a year;
  • limiting a student’s federal loan payments to 10 percent of income above basic living allowance;
  • creating a new system of automatic workplace retirement savings accounts;
  • expanding tax credits to match retirement savings; and
  • expanding elder care help for the “sandwich generation” of baby boomers caring for parents and children.

    but the blog passed 300 thousand views on the view hit meter last week.

    the viral attention to the Scott Brown blogposts last week broke the all time per-day record by a factor of 2+.

    The new daily view hit record for the blog is now in excess of 6,000 view hits in a single day.

    Got almost 4000 referral link-ins just from Michelle Malkin’s website alone.

    Hey guys!

    Obama is a retard. The cat is out of the bag. Most people know he is a leftist dipshit without a clue. Promising more entitlements ain’t going to help his 2 tril in one year on his way to 4, as it’s still spending. And taking handouts from the government over freedom is not a value ingrained in the American citizen.

    Ew David Axelrod clip on TV. He’s so yucky in a creepy 19 century British politicker who wears white stockings and strokes his ‘stache as he looks down at the ‘little people’ way… Barf.

  17. samhenry says:

    Good evening all – my last night in balmy breezes. I missed a lot of sun today writing a blog post. I am possessed I guess.

    I have added to the end of it that fits in with what M2 just said:

    voters – even the ones who voted for him – have been frustrated and angry by one big lie of his: that he was a centrist, middle of the road candidate. He is very, very left of left. THIS has peeled away trust about him and has been the underpinning of public rejection of his policies and legislation. This is the reason there was talk of “death panels” in the health care legislation – fear that they might be hidden somewhere between the lines or that they could easily be added in the future. Obama and not the imagination of the voters is responsible for this. He and his henchmen will never admit this. The strategy of making fun of people with this or any other opposing view failed and enflamed. An instructive comeback always gets farther – on both sides of an argument.

    We have only to look back and reflect on the last TV interview Anita Dunn made before her WH departure and the most stunning revelation she made: that he election machine purposely styled a program to create a cult of personality around Obama and whenever something “scary” came up about his past and /or affiliations, public attention was cleverly diverted from it. This is deceipt of the first order. A candidate should be who and what he is; not what is scripted. No wonder we don’t recognize the man in the White House and and that for which he stands.

  18. samhenry says:

    Liberty

    “On December 16, 1773, several dozen colonists in Boston, angered by King George’s financially ruinous tea tax, took action into their own hands. Dressed as Mohawk Indians, they snuck onto 3 British tea ships and dumped over 300 chests of tea into Boston Harbor. That revolt was said to have sparked the American Revolution. Last [Tuesday] night, the state of Massachusetts was the site of yet another revolt, only this time it was Attorney General Martha Coakley, the Democratic Party, and President Obama, health care and health care reform that were thrown into the drink, following the stunning election of Republican Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate. Yet on the eve of the election, the White House suggested … that they would not moderate the president’s policies, but in a fit of madness akin to King George’s, would double down and strike a more combative tone. I have a feeling that over the next few days, the White House will want to … amend their remarks. … In response to the tea party protest, King George passed the ‘Coercive Acts,’ which was every bit as punishing as it sounds. Will King Barack respond to the election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts with moderation and scrap health care or with madness and shove a coercive bill down America’s collective throats?” –columnist Brian Doherty

    Opinion in Brief

    “The Democrats have no natural majority because they have no fundamental principles — at least none that they are willing to state out loud. They are like a drunken vagrant who emerges from the alley to cause havoc every few years. They are the perpetual toothache of American politics. To be sure, the fact that 52 percent of Massachusetts voters are racist, sexist tea-baggers — i.e., voted for a Republican — means only that the Democrats just went from having the largest congressional majority in a generation to the second largest. But this was ‘Teddy Kennedy’s seat.’ And it was in Massachusetts. Now, no Democrat is safe. But the country just got a lot safer.” –columnist Ann Coulter

  29. LisaInTX says:

    Re: The Left

    “Americans have been sick and tired of dishonest and destructive policies emanating from the Feds of both R and D varieties for longer than [Barack Obama’s] single year of fiddling, and, in fact, longer than George W. Bush’s eight years. For several decades, at least, Americans have been spitting mad about the state of their federal government. So, what is our current Politician-in-Chief going to do about it? … What the president will do, in the age-old tradition of Washington, is to change the subject. He’s already found new areas of the economy to attack and demonize. First up are the banks. … Further, bad-mouthing Wall Street and slapping banks with a new fee, after handing them sacks of taxpayer cash, seems a weak alternative to not handing them sacks of taxpayer cash in the first place. Consider the failed $787 billion stimulus spending bill. Obama acknowledges it hasn’t much helped Main Street. So, in his State of the Union address this Wednesday, the president will take the bold step of calling for another ‘economic recovery package,’ i.e. doing the same thing again. If borrowing hundreds of billions to spend stimulating an economy crippled by too much borrowing doesn’t work, thank goodness there is always the option of borrowing hundreds of billions (if not trillions) more. Feeling better yet?” –columnist Paul Jacob

    *****OMG*****I’m gonna be SICK!!***

    Culture

    “A company well-named Neocutis now offers a skin cream made from human fetal tissue. To quote the company’s Web site: ‘Inspired by fetal skin’s unique properties, Neocutis’s proprietary technology uses cultured fetal skin cells to obtain an optimal, naturally balanced mixture of skin nutrients.’ This outfit, it may not surprise Gentle Reader to learn, is based in San Francisco, and says its product can ‘turn back time to create flawless baby-skin again.’ What good news for those suffering from dry skin — and who doesn’t this time of year? … But there’s sure to be some reactionary who objects to progress, and a niggling objection did indeed surface here and there to this latest advance in the commodification of the unborn. In its defense, Neocutis issued a statement to all concerned: ‘Our view — which is shared by most medical professionals and patients — is that the limited, prudent and responsible use of donated fetal skin tissue can continue to ease suffering, speed healing, save lives and improve the well-being of many patients around the globe.’ And improve the company’s balance sheet, too. Call it another benefit from the ever-growing abortion industry. And another triumph of supply-side economics! Create the supply and demand will follow. It does make one wonder why, if the use of human fetuses for such purposes is so unalloyed a good, the company feels the need to assure us that the practice is ‘limited, prudent and responsible.’ Is that a faint echo of some vestigial conscience?” –Arkansas Democrat-Gazette editor Paul Greenberg

    Reader Comments

    “I think it would be fun and also a good exercise for those of us who are going to listen to Mr. Obama’s State of The Union Address on January 27th to print off this list and keep count of how many times he says the following phrases, which I lifted from Mark Alexander’s essay, State of Disunion:

    * “let me be clear”
    * “make no mistake”
    * “back from the brink”
    * “signs of recovery”
    * “restored our reputation”
    * “fiscal restraint”
    * “greed on Wall Street”
    * “affordable health care”
    * “relief for working families”
    * “job creation”
    * “inherited” as in “I inherited this mess”

    And some I’d be interested hearing him say:

    * “Constitution”
    * “Founding Fathers”
    * “Individual liberty”

    I’m sure many of you could more. In any event, keeping score might be a good way to vector in on this man’s next moves.” –Fred

  44. LisaInTX says:

    I gotta go read this essay!! Can the TRUTH of the civil war be SPREADING???? One can hope!

    “[Mark Alexander’s essay, ‘Lincoln’s Legacy at 200,’ was very difficult for me to read because of my affection for President Lincoln. After reading it, however, so much makes sense and so many questions I had were answered. There were so many things that didn’t add up in my head about the war and this period of time and why things are the way they are today. I knew that Lincoln had done things that violated the Constitution, so I chalked it up to … ‘Well, it was war.’ I knew he had uttered words that showed he was racist. I never understood how someone of the caliber of Robert E. Lee could have fallen to the side of slavery even under the banner of states’ rights. Now I do. I am not one who’s beliefs can not be challenged by truth. No matter how devastating to my very soul, I would rather every foundational belief I stood on crumble to the ground than remain ignorantly proud on a pedestal of lies believed. Thank you for being truthful about one of my undeserved heroes.” –bondroid

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2010
    Congress Went to Denmark, You Got the Bill
    Exclusive: CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson Follows the Money from Copenhagen to the U.S. Taxpayer

    By Sharyl Attkisson

    Sharyl Attkisson has more on her report of how more than 100 members of Congress and their spouses went to the Copenhagen climate conference — on the U.S. taxpayers tab. How much did it all cost?

    U.S. Congress members wracked up a sizeable bill at the Copenhagen Climate Summit. Sharyl Attkisson reports that U.S. tax dollars may have been put to better use.

    (CBS) Thanks to a recently filed Congressional expense reports there’s new light shed on the Copenhagen Climate Summit in Denmark and how much it cost taxpayers.

    CBS News Investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports official filings and our own investigation show at least 106 people from the House and Senate attended – spouses, a doctor, a protocol expert and even a photographer.

    Read the Congressional Expense Report

    For 15 Democratic and 6 Republican Congressmen, food and rooms for two nights cost $4,406 tax dollars each. That’s $2,200 a day – more than most Americans spend on their monthly mortgage payment.

    CBS News asked members of Congress and staff about whether they’re mindful that it’s public tax dollars they’re spending. Many said they had never even seen the bills or the expense reports.

    Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., is a key climate change player. He went to Copenhagen last year. Last week, we asked him about the $2,200-a-day bill for room and food.

    “I can’t believe that,” Rep. Waxman said. “I can’t believe it, but I don’t know.”

    But his name is in black and white in the expense reports. The group expense report was filed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. She wouldn’t talk about it when our producer tried to ask.

    Pelosi’s office did offer an explanation for the high room charges. Those who stayed just two nights were charged a six-night minimum at the five-star Marriott. One staffer said, they strongly objected to no avail. You may ask how they’ll negotiate a climate treaty, if they can’t get a better deal on hotel rooms.

    Total hotel, meeting rooms and “a couple” of $1,000-a-night hospitality suites topped $400,000.

    Flights weren’t cheap, either. Fifty-nine House and Senate staff flew commercial during the Copenhagen rush. They paid government rates — $5-10,000 each — totaling $408,064. Add three military jets — $168,351 just for flight time — and the bill tops $1.1 million dollars — not including all the Obama administration officials who attended: well over 60.

    In fairness, many attendees told us they did a lot of hard work, and the laid groundwork for a future global treaty.

    “I was there because I thought it was important for me to be there,” Rep. Waxman said. “I didn’t look at it as a pleasure trip.”

    But considering the size of the deficit, and the fact that that no global deal would be reached — critics question the super-sized U.S. delegation — more than 165 — leaving the impression there’s dollars to burn. In this case, more than a million.
