Review of Newt 2012 Videos
After going 17 rounds with the candidates who want to be President, Americans heard last night from the man who already holds the job. The State of the Union address will be Barack Obama's third, and the public's reaction may determine if he has a fourth. For the President's team, who's trying to establish him as a "problem-solving executive," the timing couldn't be worse. Today marks the 1,000th day of Democratic futility on the federal budget--hardly the backdrop of bold economic leadership the party was hoping for. And after three years of Senate leaders ignoring the budget, now President Obama says he needs more time before releasing his. (Not a bad idea, since his last plan failed 97-0). "I think they are simply unwilling to be clear with the American people just what their agenda costs," Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said.
While Republicans parodied the 1,000 day irony, White House spokesman Jay Carney essentially explained that fiscal responsibility was not a priority. "If you got through a year and achieved everything on your list, then you probably didn't aim high enough," he suggested. So this year's agenda will feature more of the same social engineering with a little helping of "tax fairness. "We want to reward wealth and prosperity," said senior advisor David Plouffe. "But if we're going to move forward as a country, reduce our deficit, and invest in things like manufacturing and education, how are we going to pay for it?" I've got an idea: How about prioritizing spending and cutting waste? Instead, the President is returning to a familiar theme: punishing success to feed the ideology that government programs and regulations are the solution to every problem facing the nation.
And on top of all the proposed tax hikes is the biggest one of all. On January 1, 2013, the Bush tax cuts will expire and the spending trigger from the August budget deal goes into effect, meaning that if Congress doesn't do something, Americans will see over $4 trillion in tax hikes. When the President says the middle class is at a "make or break moment," he isn't kidding.
According to aides, the speech will also focus on manufacturing, clean energy, education, and a return to "American values." That should be interesting, considering this administration has done more to attack our values than encourage them. Since taking office, the administration has pushed abortion nationally (most significantly in ObamaCare) and internationally (even subverting other countries' constitutions to do it). It made supporting abortion a condition of federal funding, ordered taxpayers to finance Planned Parenthood, hijacked religious freedom, and ignored conscience rights.
The White House wants to highlight this year's "choice," and with the most pro-abortion President in history, they've succeeded. On the rare day when the administration wasn't cheerleading abortion, it still had time to
undermine marriage, sexualize the troops, secularize the military, stop enforcing U.S. marriage law, and lobby for homosexuality abroad.
The State of the Union is here--and the stakes of the union have never been higher.
