President Obama’s State Of The Union Speech Was…

On Tuesday President Obama twisted and contorted the truth like he was Gumby. In one part of his State of the Union speech he called for a spending freeze, which by the way he did last year and look where that has gotten us. The president’s proposed freeze in government spending amounts to a whopping $40 billion per year which is probably close to what we pay for office supplies every year. Then later in the speech he called for major investment (spending) to repair our crumbling infrastructure; so which one is it? A freeze or spending?

I guess in the president’s eyes, America is a third-world country along the lines of El Salvador, who he plans to negotiate a trade agreements with. I’m sure that will be of great benefit to the United States since El Salvador’s GDP is a whopping $22.3 billion per year.
