    Obama’s Address to the Nation: Draws line in sand, there must be no lines in sand other than the ones I draw

    Obama’s Address to the Nation: Draws line in sand, there must be no lines in sand other than the ones I draw

    Barack Obama read a statement today, my paraphrases and quick transcription:

    Disputes downgrade. Quotes Warren Buffett that U.S. should have AAAA rating.
    Need “balanced long term approach” — needed “day I took office.” Blames “prolonged debate over debt ceiling” for downgrade, and string of economic disruptions in Japan, Europe and the Middle East.

    Solution is simple: “Tax reform that will ask those who can afford it to pay their fair share.” And “modest adjustments” to entitlements.

    Not a lack of plans, “insistence on drawing lines in the sand.”

    Most immediate concern of Americans is slow pace of recovery coming out of “worst recession” in our lifetimes. Extend payroll tax cut as soon as possible, and extend unemployment insurance payments. One million fewer jobs if don’t do this. Plus, more infrastructure spending.

    These are proposals Republicans had agreed to in the past and should agree to now.

    “This is the United States of America, no matter what some ratings agency says, we will always be a AAA country.”

    …because the answer to dealing with people who, for the past 5 years, have chronically had the worst financial instincts is to get them more money from the job creaters.

    I always listen to him on the radio rather than watch him on TV. He is a mediocre speaker at best. His uh’s, err’s and ah’s are distracting. This guy is an empty suit.

    In 2008 the US gave Middles East countries (also OPEC) $33.486 BILLION tax dollars. The Federal government has just been announced as paying to rebuild mosques, many of which were destroyed due to being used as weapons storage, firing positions, and insurgent planning headquarters (all of which violate international law). Now, we are sending US TAX DOLLARS to rebuild the mosques/fighting positions.
