Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

S.O.T.U. proves P.O.T.U.S. is N.U.T.S.

Among the last words Obama spoke at his most recent State of the Union Address were "...the state of the union is strong". And that's why the president is NUTS: he and his liberal pals have brought us to the brink of economic disaster and their dictator-like legislative practices have deeply divided the nation. But he thinks the state of the union is strong. I'd like to take a little liberty with his last phrase by changing the words slightly to become "the states of the union are not strong", in fact many of the most liberal states are approaching bankruptcy with no hope of survival short of being bailed out by someone, and yet the president pretends that all is well on his watch. And that displays his incompetence and ignorance.

And even though our nation is broke, Obama wants to spend more money we don't have on "infrastructure", (which of course means giving more money to his pals in the unions), and high speed rail (which is neither used nor needed by a majority of the population where such things are located). These projects always cost more than projected and end up being supported not by riders, but by the local tax payers who have no need for them. These proposals are just more waste being pushed on us at a time we can't afford them. Also notice that Obama has stopped using the phrase "shovel ready". At least he's smart enough not to repeat this lie any longer.

Obama wants to spend more on education but uttered not a word of the great failure of the Department of Education in its failed attempts to educate our children at a reasonable cost, and of course did not consider abolishing the Department and returning control back to the local school districts, who would be able to correct any problems with education that were caused by the big government of education and wouldn't need additional money to do it.

Obama spoke of reducing "barriers to growth and investment" and said he had "ordered a review of government regulation..." suggesting that he may want to halt these job-killing regulations. But not once did our dense/dunce president mention the enormous burden of current regulations flowing without end from his administration, all of which will stall the start of new businesses, halt expansion of existing businesses, or will bankrupt struggling businesses. And how about the executive orders that have halted off-shore drilling, stopped fishing on the east coast and farming in California's central valley. Our president has no idea how his decisions and orders conflict with his stated desires (actually I'm certain he does understand and intends the destruction to lives and the nation's economy his orders cause, but I'll give him some slack and keep this opinion to myself).

Obama wants to "freeze annual domestic spending for the next 5 years". Notice he didn't say he wants to stop or reduce spending to levels we can afford; he wants to freeze spending at levels that will bankrupt us if we are not already in that state. And this man attended Harvard? And of course he blows long and hard about "clean technology" and calls the use of fossil fuels "yesterday's energy". Mr. Obama evidently needs to be reminded that his limos and his 747 are powered by "yesterday's energy" and there is no replacement in sight for these fuels. We are stuck on yesterday and will be using gasoline and oil for the next 20 years regardless of how much jaw he gives the subject. There is no other source of fuel that is as available, dependable, portable and that delivers such a high level of power as gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, but his administration is doing all it can to deny us the fuel we need to maintain our lives and our economy, the same fuel that is necessary to keep our nation defended from enemies that would harm us.

P.O.T.U.S. is N.U.T.S., is unable to grasp reality and is a threat to our nation's safety and prosperity.
