Obama v. Rubio v. Paul

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn took a look at the stark differences between the Obama speech and the two responses offered by Republicans Marco Rubio and Rand Paul. Obama presents his typical government will fix everything solution, while Rubio and Paul offer a very different path.

“On the economy we know what our fearless leader (President Obama) is saying: Corporate profits have rocketed to all‑time highs, people haven’t paid their fair share, and we can’t cut our way to prosperity and we have to have broad‑based economic growth, a balanced approach and with spending cuts and revenue with everybody doing their fair share,” Glenn said.

“So in other words, we’ve already raised taxes on the wealthiest but they are still not paying their fair share. We’ve already raised them; still not enough.”

“Here’s what Rubio said last night: ‘Unfortunately our economy actually shrank during the last three months of 2012, but if we can get the economy to grow at 4% a year, we could create millions of middle class jobs and it would reduce our deficits by $4 trillion over the next decade. Tax increases can’t do this. Raising taxes won’t create private sector jobs and there’s no realistic tax increase that could lower our deficits by almost $4 trillion. That’s why I hope the president will abandon his obsession with raising taxes and instead work with us to achieve real growth in our economy.’”

“That’s Rubio. Pretty good.”

As for Rand Paul: “With my five-year budget, millions of jobs would be created by cutting the corporate income tax in half, by creating a flat personal income tax of 17%, and by cutting the regulations that are strangling American businesses.”

Glenn liked Paul’s claim to make changes within five years as most ten year plans can fail when a new administration comes into power.

    The State of the union we are being driven off a cliff by a mad man and he just lock the doors.

    Obama represents communism, lies, deceit and corruption to the core of the Democratic party. 

    Rubio and Paul both have solid ideas that will work given the opportunity to do so. What has to be done successfully and soon is to sell the message and ideals to the American people and to educate them of the truth of Obama’s agenda and insanity.

    The State of the Union ( aka the state of the Banana Empire, Amerika) is that the state is ablaze with collectivism—-note: if you don’t understand (or misunderstand) what “collectivism” is, then Google,  “G Edward Griffin/Collectivism and watch the video.  

    Obama is a collectivist extraordinaire; all of his many “proposals”, which he offered during his state-of-the-Banana-Empire speech, will advance the Saul Alinsky/Cloward/Piven strategy to “fundamentally transform America” into a full-blown, collectivist super-banana-empire.

    Rand Paul, on the other hand, offers a reduction of amerikan (sic) collectivism, and this is a good start, but it is only a start. 

    Marko (sic) Rubio ( aka Marko the amerikan) is just another statist who will attempt to sucker the rubes into believing that the neoconservatives really learned the lessons of how to crash and burn a super power G.W. Bush-style. 

    The Great Collapse is coming, and before that the, Great Repricing. Collectivism, and more specifically, Keynesianism, will cause the dollar to falter and the bond bubble to burst. The amerikan dollar will be devalued by at least 35%. This, in turn, will cause what I like to call the Great Repricing. The value of everything will be repriced; and guess who will be wiped out? That’s right, the middle-class producers. And, frankly, I don’t think Rand Paul is man enough to lead amerika through what happens after the Great Repricing and during the Great Collapse.

    I’d support Rand Paul only because I see nobody else. Let’s hope God provides the one…….. Pray that we don’t become prey of just another phony, gutless politician.

     I’m sad that Glenn Beck lied about the RealNews coverage. The RealNews sucked last night big time. The only thing that was remote better any other coverage was the fact that they aired Rand’s TEA Party response.

    Beck ether lied or did not even bother to watch their(RealNews) coverage.

    All they did was give Obama a free pass, nitpicked Rubio and all out bashed Rand Paul’s speech!  I could get that type of coverage on any other news network.

    I don’t enjoy my money going to RealNews and SE Cupp to repeat the sentiment of the mainstream media.

    It was embarrassing and a shame. You know, outside covering Rand Paul speech(but just only to bash it).

     So why are Republicans losing?  I think it’s because of the the anti abortion plank.  Every time a nationally known republican advocates strong anti abortion statements…the Independents and most woman shy away.  I am tired of hearing “the message is not getting out.”  The MSM will not give republicans a chance to discuss economic issues!  The MSM always drags the narrative back to abortion. Not because it’s a hot topic, but because they know it drives woman back into the Democrat camp.

    I am glad that Rand Paul is not his father.  He is not a nutcase in foreign policy like Ron.  He does not blame Israel for America being hated in the world.  And he does recognize the dangers of a creeping Caliphate and presidential nominees who serve Muslim masters like Brennan.  Yet, I am not sure that America will make it until 2016 to even know the difference.  I personally would vote for Rand if the opportunity availed itself, but by 2016 America will likely no longer exist in a form which can be redeemed.  

    Obama is the Son of Perdition, the 11th horn dude from the Book of Daniel, and he already is in year 5.  By the end of 2015, his 7 years will already be up.  If all of you are smart, leave now like Jim Rodgers and others have already have left before America becomes a prison camp.

    Sorry, NO on Rubio as VP or POTUS because he is not a “Natural Born” citizen, his parents were not U.S. citizens when Marco was born, just like Obama.  Plus, Rubio is not a strict Constitutionalist and anyone willing to bend or violate the Constitution should never be POTUS… we’ve got that now.  Then there’s Rubio’s desire to reward illegals with amnesty and a path to citizenship; these are criminals that should have to pay for their crimes, then apply for citizenship with a clean slate.  Rubio was a TEA Party candidate who’s rapidly becoming a Republican Party hack.  I hope he returns to those of us who helped him get elected.  Otherwise… Rubio is OK. 

    Rand Paul is our best candidate so far. 

    I like Bachmann except she’ too hawkish on war.

    PS: Bobby Jindal Is not “Natural Born” either.  He’s a great governor.

    Ron Paul is a foreign policy nut job.  In foreign policy Ron Paul was pure Looney Tunes.  In Ron’s mind the founding fathers fought no wars outside of its sphere of influence.  Ron knows something about the Monroe Doctrine, but conveniently forgot about two wars that Jefferson and Madison fought against the Muslim Caliphate of their day.  Both Jefferson and Madison had a dislike for the tyranny of Islam, and the sent boys to Tripoli and back without letting them get murdered in nearby Benghazi.  In addition, Ron’s hatred of Israel trumped his common sense.  In foreign policy, Rand is nothing like his 9/11 Truther father.  And Rand did not condemn his own country for taking out Bin Laden.  His father did it on the day that he announced his presidential candidacy.  Face it.  Ron Paul was and still is a foreign policy fruitcake.

    His son Rand came of age and his common sense in domestic policy is the source of his common sense in foreign policy too.  In short, the son cannot be blamed for the sins of his father.

  • greywolfrs

    Well, Rand Paul seems to have the best ideas, although I would like to hear exactly what kind of “immigration reform” he is talking about. Rubio advocating amnesty for 11 million illegals proves the establishment has already sunk their meat hooks into him. NO AMNESTY! It’s time for an Eisenhower, deport them ALL. Lock down our borders once and for all. There is a reason we have immigration laws, so that other countries do not dump their dirtbags into our country so they do not have to house them in prisons. They broke our laws coming here in the first place, why wouldn’t they break any other law they disagree with or whenever they see fit?

    On another note, as I have been doing cutting down a tree in my front yard and removing the stump, one of neighbors informed me that there is a child molester living next door to me. Sure enough, I went to Megan’s list and looked up my ZIP code, there he was. I looked down the list of 80 or so registered sex offenders in my ZIP code, about 76% of them are hispanic. Is there any wonder why we have immigration laws?

    Ramona, here we are in the age of the Internet, where information is available 24/7 and still there are people that kiss the kings ring.
    What must have happened in Germany in 1939? Who would conceive of or believe that the Chancellor of Germany had intentions of killing people, all because of their religious belief; Similar to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s plan for Israel! Yet many in this country see nothing wrong with those plans. No one questions why the US is silent once again just like it was in Roosevelt’s regime. “That guy” pretends to care but we all know it’s politics at its best!
    You only need to look at what happened in Benghazi……the media is silent, except of course for people like Glenn and Rush.

    We are in bad times and I pray that God hears our pleas.

     I really like Rand Paul as he does not change the results.   Rubio swings a little too much with appeasing the establishment and has that amnesty want.  He is a smooth talker like Obama and I sure hope Americans have learned the lesson of smooth talkers or straight honest facts.  I like Rubio but I think he is too swift a talker for real conservatism.

    The REAL SOTU
    2/13/2013
    I have about 4 hours of air flight time to offer a rebuttal to the POTUS SOTU presented last night to the people of the USA. I didn’t watch it for two reasons; the 1st is that I watched as all of the president’s advance guard were on the media early in the day providing advance conditioning of the crowd for his same old rhetoric and rewritten campaign speeches, and the 2nd, I was still working a 14 hour day earning my salary for the honor to be called “fat cat millionaire” (my income is far below that inference but sufficient to fall into his class warfare definition) and funding the government’s confiscation program called Income Tax so a few more fat ass welfare recipients who haven’t ever worked an honest day’s work can still buy cigarettes and booze with 35% of my wages.

    WARNING!! If you are among the closed minded Liberal sycophants and Obama Marxist devotees who would follow him over a cliff (literally and figuratively) or those anti-capitalism “America is the root of the world’s evils” current day SDS (look up the radical ‘60s communist movement) anarchists then this narrative is not for you and I suggest deleting it now.

    The the remaining 83% of Americans who honestly believe the USA is a great place and regardless of political affiliation can read and consider rationally the arguments presented here, I thank you and suggest you read on.
    My perspective is important to properly frame my arguments so I offer the following brief bio. I am a baby boomer approaching retirement after 40+ years of education and progressively more professional employment as consequence of gaining valuable industry expertise. I am the son of a non-high school grad blue collar union tradesman who worked his ass off in freezing cold and extreme hot weather in the construction industry in the mid-west to provide for his family of six. We did not starve nor had the world handed to us, for the most part we had a very common upbringing with my parents banking on education being our way to the American dream. We went to church every Sunday and were proud of our military (my father and his 3 brothers and my mom’s brothers fought in WWII). I was a good student and the first in the extended family to go to college. I was spared induction to the military by lottery draw and actually protested the Kent State killings as morally wrong for a nation to fire on its own citizens, but had many school buddies who fought in Viet Nam and I hold them all in highest regard as national heroes.
    I now am married and have two adult sons and step daughter, all working and striving for their turn at enjoying the liberties and opportunities our fathers fought and died for. I have two beautiful grandchildren who are the love of my life but will likely suffer a declining quality of life as consequence of reckless spending by our federal and state governments and total disregard for accumulating indebtedness to foreign nations.

    So do you have the picture? Blue collar upbringing, Christian and traditional values upbringing, with respect for national strength, opportunity nurtured in capitalism and our free nation, and fundamental belief in our God-given and constitutionally protected rights. Hard for me to believe anyone born in the USA or naturalized citizens who waited and studied and worked to join this proud nation could ever stand for policies and platforms that weaken it. It just doesn’t make sense. Is our nation perfect? NO! So let’s work to make her better, not tear her down.
    OK, so back on track with the REAL state of the Union. As promised by POTUS, we are undergoing fundamental change.
    From the world’s greatest nation to a debtor nation
    From a UNITED states to a fractured and divided and bitter nation of special interests fighting among ourselves
    From the land of opportunity to a nation of entitlements
    From a democratic representative government to a fascist one party ruled cronyism system where only “friends of POTUS “ are rewarded for their quid pro quo support
    Where successful entrepreneurs are demonized and slackers are rewarded
    Where political rhetoric (Intentional deceit) is normalized and rationalized by the political players and media and opposition is denigrated and devalued
    This list could go on for pages but I think all readers can get the picture. We are in decline and heading in the wrong direction, FAST. Sol Alinski was a genius and over the course of several generations, his liberal followers have invaded the education system and the media so the young and impressionable are now the main composition of virtually every community and every industry and of sufficient size to dominate ever so slightly the election process that we may not recover from the proverbial slide down the slippery slope. I find it hard to believe that the majority of Americans were complacent while these efforts progressively ground their way into power, especially with conservative leaders like Reagan, Buckley, Limbaugh, and the new parade of Tea Party candidates sounding the clear and real warning bells. I still do not believe that our nation has so many disenfranchised, disaffected and radical elements that they make a majority. My opinion is a huge silent and probably unaware mass of people just are not paying attention or are tired of the rancor and perpetual ineffectual talking point arguments that they just tune out. This is a huge win for special interest groups as this magnifies their influence. The conservative movement simply plays the game as defined by the liberals and is neutered in the process.
    POTUS divides the nation by age, income, race, gender, religion, political philosophy, sexual orientation, profession, geography, education and any other means he can think of. Conservatives speak only to those that are not specifically rewarded by liberal affiliation.
    He demonizes industries that employ most of the workers in the US and appeals to the unions with handouts. Industries are struggling for survival amongst world competition as he demands more tribute to his socialistic “tax the corporations” philosophy to give welfare and health benefits to those who do not work and to illegal aliens for future votes. This will fail as recession and possible depression economics continue to wreak havoc on US businesses and regulation kills small business. Americans will fall victim to continued high unemployment and increasing welfare statism.
    POTUS dis-regard for founding principles and established separation of powers with unchallenged usurpation of powers because he has a Senate and Supreme Court packed with neo-pols who no longer believe in the constitution. He now advocates relinquishing the last defined freedom that protects a free people, the right to bear arms. When a government fails to protect its citizens, it fails in its defined responsibilities and only works to serve those already in power. That is the same situation the founding fathers found themselves in when Jefferson wrote the declaration of Independence. Time is running out for the few conservative voices in government to stand up and speak truthfully and plainly about the real circumstances and dire straits we are in and the REAL intentions of the leftist factions. Obama has us chasing our tails defending issue after issue while the man behind the curtain progresses the nation’s ship to the precipice. We are distracted from the significant battlefront by diversions or many are lulled to sleep while public debate ensues over relatively minor points. He uses (abuses) crisis to enflame emotions so those who could defend against infringement do not dare to publically stand on principle for fear of ridicule.
    So what are the people of America concerned about today? A liberal psychopath shootout with police after declaring war on conservatives. The fashion dress worn by Hollywood elites at their self- adoration party. A senator sleeping with teenage prostitutes. A fake girlfriend and joke played on a college athlete. And hundreds of other “news” worthy events while our nation dies of cancer, while politicians steal more of your fruits of labor to fund their campaign war chests and secure future votes with entitlements, while you and your neighbors struggle to remain employed while your employers barely survive competitive threats and governmental regulation, while our children’s and grandchildren’s future is threatened by corruption, greed and financial abuse by our own elected officials, while serious foreign threats gain strength and terrorize us and other western cultures. Don’t you think it’s time to start paying attention and start standing for something? Don’t you care that our liberties are threatened? Don’t you care that our children won’t have the same quality of life and freedoms we enjoy? I believe most of us do care. I believe most of us will awaken, but unfortunately the pain is not yet great enough. The deceit is not apparent or believed by enough yet. I do believe the same national pride and confidence our forefathers held and the blessings of freedoms so cherished and the devotion to family will prevail and we will take America back. Just not yet.

    The media on which you read this will someday overtake conventional media. The few who entertain themselves on broadcast media will continue to dwindle and eventually lose influence. The educational system is in serious financial trouble and losing participation to internet based resources that by its very nature will offer all sides of political arguments, so eventually the establishment will lose ground. Maybe enough of you will send this article to your friends and family and will start a fire among us who cherish the way it was in our youth. Strong united America, with robust economic and educational opportunity for all. An egalitarian society that values all people, not select few, that guarantees freedoms to pursue personal interests and enjoys free speech and assembly, the rights to protect oneself and family from those who would take instead of earn. A nation that rewards success and achievement and has heroes and role models.
    The left will rebuke my writings here as radical right wing, extremist Bible-thumping bigoted, racist, rantings. I prefer Christian, Conservative, traditional, responsible, mainstream, rational and OPEN MINDED arguments from a professional who has worked hard and cares for his family and friends, is a good provider and stands for traditional values, respects law and order and believes a strong nation and military is not only good for its citizens, but stabilizes the world and provides an example to other nations of what established freedoms can mean to them as well and defends the helpless from bad actors.
    Please consider where you are in your beliefs. Please declare a position and be proud of your decision. Decide to act to defend whatever it is you cherish. Commit to vote and help elect those who agree with you, those with principles and real character. I will distribute this in many forums so my wish might be fulfilled that somewhere enough sparks ignite a great movement, a rekindling of a national spirit to save our glorious nation.
    God Bless to all

    Rubio is a imbecile, talk of him for VP is digusting and stupid. He would be one step from president. No way Jose! This below is the “one” ~ Palin/2016 ..Allen West as her VP if he comes out clean after being fully vetted..
    =================================

    #SOTUGottaBKiddingMeby Sarah Palin on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 9:02am ·
    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wouldn’t “increase our deficit by a single dime.” Of course, he glossed over the inconvenient facts. He boasted about job creation, but didn’t mention that real unemployment is higher today than when he took office. He touted all those still undiscovered “clean energy” jobs without mentioning the tens of thousands of real jobs the Keystone Pipeline will create if he would simply allow it to be built. He sang of new energy development, but didn’t mention that new offshore leases for oil and natural gas drilling have declined a decimating 61% under his administration. He talked about “helping” to build “a thriving middle class,” but didn’t address how the middle class is actually faring under his economic stewardship. This is important – his deception must be addressed: under his leadership, middle class families have seen the average price per gallon of gas increase 96%, the average cost of family health care premiums rise 24%, the annual cost per household from federal regulations rise to over $15,000, and real median household income decline $4,520. If this is what happens when he “helps” the middle class, then please, Mr. President, we implore you to stop “helping” us. He talked about a “balanced approach to deficit reduction” without mentioning that $5.9 trillion has already been added to the debt since he took office. We’re $16.5 trillion in debt and he keeps digging the hole deeper! He didn’t mention his record trillion dollar deficits or the fact that his last proposed budget would add $9.2 trillion to the debt through 2022. His Democrat-controlled Senate hasn’t passed a budget in four years. That’s obviously not “responsible” or “balanced.” He said, “We can’t cut our way to prosperity.” Well, we definitely can’t get there by borrowing and spending money we don’t have on his “investments” that don’t work. If indiscriminately borrowing and spending money led to prosperity, then bankruptcy would be a sign of economic strength. But it isn’t. A State of the Union address should give us a true picture of the direction in which we are headed. But we didn’t get the truth last night. And it WAS Orwellian. What is the true state of our union? Though this may sound harsh, I’ll speak the truth here. We are a country going bankrupt to fund a bloated, distant, and often corrupt federal government led by venal politicians more concerned with paying off their campaign cronies and consolidating their own power than in preserving the constitutional republic that so many have fought and died for (including our brave men and women in uniform who were barely mentioned last night). We are a country with an economy being stifled under the weight of a bankrupt and voracious federal machine demanding more taxes and burdensome regulations. Job creators are the ones stuck with the bill when Obama calls for “new revenue.” Their businesses bear the brunt of the nearly 87 million paperwork hours imposed by federal regulations in 2012 – annually costing them $1.75 trillion. And I haven’t even mentioned Obamacare yet, which looms like the dark cloud it is over our private sector. Is it any wonder why our economy is stagnant or why job growth is so anemic? President Obama’s “solution” to these problems is to make the federal government more intrusive, bankrupt, and controlling. If we continue down the path Barack Obama has us on, the long-term forecast of the state of our union is not a pretty picture. Yet he merrily rolls along it, deceiving too many Americans into thinking that these are intelligent, economic, and ethical proposals. Our President wasn’t candid with Americans about our forecast, but, interestingly, in a Q&A session last week, Paul Krugman, one of President Obama’s economic cheerleaders at the New York Times, was remarkably candid about where we’re headed. When asked about our federal debt, he admitted that “eventually we do have a problem” especially because “the population is getting older” and “health care costs are rising.” So, what does he see as the solution to pay for all this? He admits that your taxes will rise. And worse: “Surely in the end it will require some middle class taxes as well. We won’t be able to pay for the kind of government the society will want without some increase in taxes, not a huge one, but some increase in taxes on the middle class, maybe a value added tax. And we’re also going to have to make decisions about health care – not pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits. So, the snarky version I use, which I shouldn’t even say because it gets me in trouble, is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this.” (But wait, I thought there’d be no such thing as “death panels,” liberal liars?) Mr. Krugman tried to portray this brave new world in the gentlest possible light, but it’s going to take quite a lot of “sales taxes” to meet the payments on the ever-increasing multi-trillion dollar debt we’re burying our kids and grandkids under. And with health care costs rising under Obamacare, obviously a lot of care will be rationed and even flat out denied by panels of faceless bureaucrats making life and death decisions for you and your loved ones. This is the long-term forecast for the state of America under Obama’s failed policies: middle class taxes and death panels. Does that sound good to you? It doesn’t to me. So, we better get motivated to do something about it. We’d better get out of our post-election funk and wake up to the radicals’ reality being created as America gets “fundamentally transformed.” Here’s the good news: President Obama is in many ways a lame duck president. None of his ridiculous ideas will come to pass via the legislative process. Of course, he may try to force them down America’s throat by imposing them through other means. But they can be undone if the right people are in position to undo them. He is very bold right now – some would say cocky – because of his November win, but there is another election around the corner, and we can check his boldness at the ballot box by electing constitutional conservatives. We must continue to affirm the fact that growing our bankrupt federal government is NOT the solution. Most of what the federal government does could be handled better on the individual, local, and state levels. Our country didn’t weather a Revolution, two World Wars, a Civil War, a Great Depression, and countless other political and economic storms, just to be sunk by the dangerous policies of this current administration. We’re stronger than this. As President Reagan said, “I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do. I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing.” So, do something. 2014 is just around the corner. Get motivated! Get organized. America, don’t retreat. In the words of yet another White House program, “Let’s move.” - Sarah Palin—————

    Rubio was against SB1070 untill his office was flooded with calls. He then came out and said, I changed my mind because two words in the bill where changed (BS) ~ Many of my people called his office and told him, Sarah Palin was solely responsible for him winning election and she just went to Arizona to stand with Jan Brewer the Gov. in support of the bill.
    This young punk has never served, he only took what he could take from this country. He should have been indicted for fraud for taking money for personal use. It was drop after he said he was sorry, not good enough.

    Please, people, read a little history! The rise of Nazi Germany had to do with Versailles (Treaty of), the collapse of the German economy in the early 1920′s, and several other factors. Hitler was able to capitalize on the German people’s fears and lost pride after WWI. He was legally elected in 1932 as chancellor of Germany. His 1932 speech is on YouTube and is very interesting (http://youtu.be/KqBEJweLV5s). He began his “career” in 1923 in a failed “putsch” in a beerhall in Munich. He wrote Mein Kampf in 1925 and 1926 while in prison. In it, he “explains” his anti-Semitism, among other things. (I majored in German language and literature and have an interest in German/European history.)
     
    And, anyway…what does this have to do with Rubio or Rand Paul? Be careful what you see on the Internet. Make sure you know the source! Wiedersehen!

    Rubio’s parents were not born in this Country and President Barack Hussein Obama had only one parent who was a citizen of these United States of America.  His Father was an African born and he went to England to even come over to Hawaii for an education.  Haven’t you been reading anything about Obama’s Background???  Rubio was a natural born citizen of the United States of America.  He was born and raised by his parents who were born in Cuba but came to the US because they wanted the free life that is here in the US!  His parents both became citizens of the U.S.  They both worked hard and brought up a family.  Oh yes, I forgot to tell you that his mother and father were married before their child was even conceived!  Rubio is a precious person who cares about our land.  He thinks of America like it is God’s Land, which indeed God created it!  I like both Paul and Rubio and I think that they would be a better match than what we have now!

    The problem is we have let the far left take over our schools and indoctrinate our kids for a generation. They see socialism/Communism as a good thing and hard work and capitalism as bad. There is no way fix it now short of letting the Red state go our own way and just wait for the blue state like California to go bankrupt then reconstruct them. The Marxist have vote fraud down to an art now so this can’t be fixed at a ballet box.

    If a woman is driven back into the Democrat camp that is a shame.  These young women have been raised with no morals that is why there are so many abortions.  I thank God everyday my parents raised us with character and morals.  Do you know that 55 millions babies have been aborted, that is almost a whole country.  I have raised my girls the way I was raised.  Parents need to get more involved and get their children back in church.  If you read the bible killing is a sin.

    The whole SOTU speech was an out-of-control-spending presentation. Obama carefully noted that his policies SHOULDN’T cost an extra dime, but omitted to say that they would cost billions! Washington is so corrupt and it’s high time to clean it up. Let’s start with the voting system where EVERY voter needs to be identified and polled properly. Maybe then we’ll get the appropriate president.

    The four that were killed in Bengazi; the Ambassador and two seals, then the fourth. The fourth was my own son’s counterpart. He works for the Dept of State and is the LAST one out of the embassy while following a marine. This Administration’s crimes are despicable. The Communist-democrats take responsibility for nothing; not Waco, not impeachment, not Benghazi. Let GW Bush or Nixon do anything and the communist media has all hell break loose. Disgusting regime. I wish the CIA would do their job and protect us from all enemies both foreign and * domestic*…

    Thank you DR. BENJAMIN CARSON: There are a group of people who would like to silence everybody and have everybody go along to get along, but that’s not going to be very helpful for us in the long run, in terms of solving our problems. And somebody has to be courageous enough to actually stand up to, you know, the bullies.
    DR. CARSON: One of the things I also said during the speech is there will be some people who will say, ‘but you’re a doctor and you’re a surgeon, you should be sticking to that.’ And I mentioned the fact that five physicians signed the Declaration of Independence and were involved in the framing of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and several other things.
    There’s absolutely no reason at all that physicians, scientists, shouldn’t be involved in things that affect all of us. We’re people who’ve learned how to make decisions based on facts, empirical data, rather than on ideology, and one of the geniuses, one of the real things that made us a great nation, is that we brought people from all backgrounds into the legislative process. So that all of us would be able to place our interests there and we’ve gone significantly away from that.

    Dr. Carson had the courage at BHO Inaugural Breakfast to hit many problems head on. Too bad it is so hard to find good men who are Godly that will take a stand for the Truth!

    Ha. Then maybe you liberals shouldn’t be out promoting
    sex and free condoms/contraceptives to teenagers (and elementary school kids for that matter). Personally if those people use a hanger to abort their baby and die in the process, that is their choice and unfortunately the consequence. Perhaps they should have thought of what sex is for: making babies. Every science class I took said sex is for reproducing and that we humans are no different than the animals in this regard, which is to perpetuate the species. So if that is the case which science makes, why do you liberals love and promote the deaths of millions of unborn/born children? I know: It’s to allow these young people a way out, to escape from the consequences of their actions by getting an abortion and being able to live their lives, as if nothing happened. Truly sickening.

    Well, I guess the horse is already out of the barn — so to speak.

    The G.O.P. reply, delivered by Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, was both interesting and revelatory. And I mean that in the worst way. For Mr. Rubio is a rising star, to such an extent that Time magazine put him on its cover, calling him “The Republican Savior.” What we learned Tuesday, however, was that zombie economic ideas have eaten his brain.

    In case you’re wondering, a zombie idea is a proposition that has been thoroughly refuted by analysis and evidence, and should be dead — but won’t stay dead because it serves a political purpose, appeals to prejudices, or both. 

    Start with the big question: How did we get into the mess we’re in?The financial crisis of 2008 and its painful aftermath, which we’re still dealing with, were a huge slap in the face for free-market fundamentalists. Circa 2005, the usual suspects — conservative publications, analysts at right-wing think tanks like the American Enterprise Institute and the Cato Institute, and so on — insisted that deregulated financial markets were doing just fine, and dismissed warnings about a housing bubble as liberal whining. Then the nonexistent bubble burst, and the financial system proved dangerously fragile; only huge government bailouts prevented a total collapse.Instead of learning from this experience, however, many on the right have chosen to rewrite history.

    Back then, they thought things were great, and their only complaint was that the government was getting in the way of even more mortgage lending; now they claim that government policies, somehow dictated by liberals even though the G.O.P. controlled both Congress and the White House, were promoting excessive borrowing and causing all the problems.Every piece of this revisionist history has been refuted in detail. No, the government didn’t force banks to lend to Those People; no, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac didn’t cause the housing bubble (they were doing relatively little lending during the peak bubble years); no, government-sponsored lenders weren’t responsible for the surge in risky mortgages (private mortgage issuers accounted for the vast majority of the riskiest loans).

    But the zombie keeps shambling on — and here’s Mr. Rubio Tuesday night: “This idea — that our problems were caused by a government that was too small  — it’s just not true. In fact, a major cause of our recent downturn was a housing crisis created by reckless government policies.” Yep, it’s the full zombie.

    What about responding to the crisis? Four years ago, right-wing economic analysts insisted that deficit spending would destroy jobs, because government borrowing would divert funds that would otherwise have gone into business investment, and also insisted that this borrowing would send interest rates soaring. The right thing, they claimed, was to balance the budget, even in a depressed economy.]

    Now, this argument was obviously fallacious from the beginning. As people like me tried to point out, the whole reason our economy was depressed was that businesses weren’t willing to invest as much as consumers were trying to save. So government borrowing would not, in fact, drive up interest rates — and trying to balance the budget would simply deepen the depression.Sure enough, interest rates, far from soaring, are at historic lows — and countries that slashed spending have also seen sharp job losses. You rarely get this clear a test of competing economic ideas, and the right’s ideas failed.But the zombie still shambles on.

    And here’s Mr. Rubio: “Every dollar our government borrows is money that isn’t being invested to create jobs. And the uncertainty created by the debt is one reason why many businesses aren’t hiring.” Zombies 2, Reality 0.

    Cite the statute that you claim Obama violated, then list the evidence you have to prove your allegations. Even a goober like you should know that ‘due process’ includes a trial for accused citizens, with real proof of a real violation of a real law. Without all of these you are violating an accused person’s right to ‘due process’,and the presumption of innocence.

    See? You have problems with your own argument, stupidly violating the very principles you claim to be concerned about.
