President Obama – The State Of The Union Requires More Government Investments

There are some things that are as dependable as the sun and the moon. No matter what happens, the sun always rises in the east and sits in the west. The moon will shine its light on the night until God says it is enough. And the left-wing liberals will always want more government spending. That’s what we will hear from President Obama in his State of the Union address tonight. No matter what happens with our economy, boom or bust, his answer always seems to be more government spending. Of course, he will probably refrain from calling it government spending, sticking to terms such as “investments”, but the results will be the same. We will pay more taxes and the government will spend more money.

(Fox News) The president is expected to revive his calls Tuesday for government “investments” in infrastructure and education — meaning spending. He’ll focus on economic growth, while acknowledging the need to close the deficit through a combination of budget cuts and tax increases.

“The core emphasis that he has always placed in these big speeches remains the same, and it will remain the same — the need to make the economy work for the middle class,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said.

He declined to get into specifics, but said the speech will focus on “proposals that are necessary to help the middle class grow and to help the economy grow.”

Am I the only one who is sick of hearing the phrase “a balance approach”? Every time President Obama talks about how to make our economy grow and how to cut the deficit, he says it will take “a balanced approach”. He explains that this means a combination of spending cuts and tax increases. Except all we have seen thus far is tax increases. We are still waiting on the spending cuts. It’s a good thing we aren’t holding our breath.  Even though many Americans want our government to cut spending, President Obama seems oblivious to our calls. He believes he has a mandate and he is pushing his 2nd-term agenda to the hilt. He’ll be twisting the blade tonight. I can hardly wait to hear what he has to say. Who knows, the Democrats in Congress may stand up and start chanting, “spending, spending, spending”.

Will this administration ever admit its policies are failing the American people? Given Obama’s propensity to push his agenda, no matter what we say or do, I would say, probably not. He has already outlined the direction his 2nd term will take in his inaugural address. I expect him to give more specifics in his speech tonight. More of the same tactics, tax and spend, tax and spend, tax and spend. Sigh……….

    Beltway Democrats have been a bunch of one note Charlies since the 60′s….no matter what the problem,or how the economy may be doing,the only suggestion any of them ever have is “raise taxes”…it’s enough to drive a man to drink

      You forgot one ingredient of their formula. Not only do they want to raise taxes, they want to increase spending.

      Thanks for commenting on Political Realities.

    His sole mission is to attempt to destroy the GOP. Divide and conquer is as old as the hills in political warfare, Setting himself up to take back the House, then were are done.

    Not until they run out of other people to blame. Do not hold your breath!

      Don’t worry, I’m not. That would be a sure way to commit suicide.

    He keeps calling for a balance approach and yet he is unwilling to cut anything. If I were in the republican leadership I would tell him “you got your tax increases in the fiscal cliff deal, now it is time for the cuts” and I would refuse to authorize any new spending. It seems simple to me and that is why I am leaning towards letting the sequester happen–it is the only way we will see any cuts.
