Listening to Barack Hussein's state of the Union, one hardly recognizes the country he says we're living in. Wall Street is bustling and the economy has turned around.
Our future looks even brighter - biomedical research and clean technology, initiatives to protect our planet, supercomputers and electronic vehicles, clean coal and natural gas, better internet access to 98% of all Americans, better railroads, new train stations and offramps, "all paid for", he said.
That's what he said, it will be all paid for. "By you" was what he didn't say.
He said he's getting ready for the day when 80% of Americans will be riding a high-speed rail. Think about that. Where the heck are we all going?
Oh yeah, and free education and IT jobs for illegals.
He does big things this guy. Big things. And, he says he's going to do it without accruing any debt. The 3.5 trillion dollars later he said all the money to pay for it is going to come from cutting domestic spending. He might have tipped his hand. Said he is going to "merge and consolidate government". Everyone clapped. We're all going to sacrifice and struggle to meet the demands of the new age he said.
And good luck to the gays, he says he's going to proactively recruit them into ROTC programs, just as he's finding creative ways to defund our military. The Joint Chiefs of Staff didn't stand up or clap. That was the highlight of the evening for me.
Was it me or was McCain a little too giddy?
