Obama calls for three-year spending freeze
Declaring that “I do not accept second place for the United States of America,” President Barack Obama compared the economic crisis to the greatest challenges of the nation’s past, saying “history’s call” demanded a years-long freeze on huge chunks of popular government spending programs.
In his first State of the Union address, Obama bluntly compared the recession to great challenges of the past like the Civil War and the bloody struggle for civil rights in the 1960s. While there has been progress, it has stalled, he said, telling lawmakers in the House chamber and millions of Americans at home that “the devastation remains.”
“I take my share of the blame for not explaining it more clearly to the American people,” Obama said. “… This problem is not going away.”
After having campaigned for the White House by promising to expand government help for struggling segments of the population, Obama reversed course Wednesday night. He called for a total freeze for three years, beginning in 2011, on all government spending other than national security and public insurance programs that are mandated by law — Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

Obama calls for three-year spending freeze
I watched, and listened as Barack Hussein Obama give the State of the Union speech last night. Actually, it’s not going to be all that hard to analyze and critique what Obama had to say.
See?? That wasn’t so hard now was it?
In a recent interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC World News, Barack Hussein Obama said:
I’d rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president.
Actually, I am a bit surprised that Obama has lasted as long as he has. I’m surprised that he hasn’t been impeached for incompetency, removed from office and run out of town. I never thought he would make it past a month or 2, much less serve a full 4 year term. So far, I have been wrong. But for Obama to even remotely believe that he is a success, of ANY kind, only highlights the egotistical narcissism of the biggest failure to ever infest the Oval Office.
I can’t think of one thing that Obama has done that I could call a success. I can’t think of so much as one thing that he’s done to inspire confidence. What I have seen, so far, is a POTUS that makes many questions get asked, and those questions have everything to do with the idea that he is trying to bankrupt this nation, morally and financially,
The biggest question that I want answered is this; at what point in time does the situation that our nation is in become the responsibility of Obama and his minions? You can only blame Bush, and other previous administrations, for so long. And several times last night, Obama blamed Bush for everything that this nation suffers. And not so indirectly either!
Granted, Bush does deserve some of the blame, as do his predecessors, but to hear Obama tell it, he really IS The Obamessiah and he is going to lead us out of the wilderness brought on by the past transgressions of the Evil Bush Empire. What he doesn’t say is that his leadership will take us from the wilderness into the chains of full blown socialism and slavery!
Obama hasn’t got a clue when it comes to managing America. He didn’t write the speech he gave last night. He wouldn’t know where to start. Barack Hussein Obama has never held a job, never owned or managed a business, never been a producer of anything other than a line of political bullshit! Now he thinks he can manage the United States and dictate policy to the entire world!
I also watched and listened as the new Governor of Virginia, Bob McDonnell, gave the GOP response to Obama’s load of crap. I couldn’t help but notice the way the GOP staged their *BIG TENT* affair to flaunt their all inclusiveness, as well as their racial and sexual diversity.
McDonnell was flanked by an Asian male and a Black female. Yes Sir, that’s getting the message across. Nothing subliminal about that!
The reason that the GOP is the wreck it is right now is because of this *BIG TENT* mentality. I, for one, am damned tired of the GOP being a *BIG TENT*, and nothing more than Dem Lite!
There’s nothing wrong with sexual and/or racial diversity, but when the all powerful Political Correctness has to be embraced before the GOP can give an, at best, lukewarm response to the Obama SOTU address?
NO MORE RINOs, no more moderates, no more sitting back and taking whatever it is the GOP and RNC decide to hand us. By God it’s time to get LOUD and PROUD as they used to say in the deep South! No more Casper Milquetoast. Fire in the hole and damn the torpedoes, we have a nation to save! And the GOP response I heard tonight just didn’t stand up to muster in MY not so humble opinion!
One other thing, I captured this picture from MSNBC and have it hosted to MY pics file so they can’t piss and moan about their stuff being used by a blogger that doesn’t get a dribble down his leg every time Obama opens his pie hole!
Take a close look at Joe Biden.
Now take a look at this. You folks ever hear of a ventriloquist named Jeff Dunham? How about his puppet Walter?
Just sayin’… 😛
