ALEXANDER: Obama’s State Of The Union Speech Didn’t Impress Me

ALEXANDER: Obama’s State Of The Union Speech Didn’t Impress Me

Our country faces serious issues, and these issues require serious solutions—not another year of empty promises, same-old strategies and party blaming.

Tonight’s speech centered around America’s sluggish economy, and with it ideas on how to get it moving at a faster rate. Proposals for investments in infrastructure, manufacturing, clean energy and education were heard among others. However, these promises were more of the same we’ve all heard before, and more of the same still largely unfulfilled.

For quite some time, the policies that the president has advanced merely produced more reckless spending, an unshakable debt and further government intrusion. Perhaps even more unnerving is that we have done nothing to tackle our debt in the long term.

In addition to budget resolutions, Republicans have passed two plans to replace the across-the-board cuts due to sequestration with common-sense solutions to get our spending problem in check. That is two, tangible plans which have passed a body of Congress. While the president’s speech certainly offered good talking points, until he or the Senate have something on paper, the American people cannot take it seriously. Until then, the Commander in Chief’s promises will go unfulfilled once more.

    There will never be a serious budget from the left while the "O" and his minions in Congress(Pelosi, Reid, etc.) hold the reins of this country's economy. With the help of the media and the left-leaning repugs, we will be buried before his second term ends. If you have not figured that out by now, you need go back to your day job.
