He Will Veto Any Bill With Earmarks...... Give Me a $16 Billion Break.

Mr. President, nice speech!  However, the time for nice speeches is over we need action!
The country is in debt up to it's "eyeballs," not that  China minds, they own most of it and I don't need to tell you what that means. ( Didn't you just have a big state dinner for the communist leader of China?)
 Mr. President, you said, "Because the American people deserve to know that special interests aren't larding up legislation with pet projects, both parties in Congress should know this: if a bill comes to my desk with earmarks inside, I will veto it." Nice touch Mr. President,  but you said that before you became President and while  President. The problem is, you lied, as a matter of fact you signed a bill a couple of weeks ago that contained more than 9000 earmarks, yes more than 9000!  Last year alone you signed bills containing about $16 BILLION in earmarks, yes, Billion! So what  part of your speech should the American people believe?
I heard you say you wanted to freeze spending levels for the next 5 years. Do you want to freeze them at  the current level? In case it may have slipped your mind, the current level of spending has put us so deep in debt some believe we may never get out... Yes, I know you said, "discretionary spending" but it all "Mumbo-Jumbo" and you know it!
 Mr. President, do you even know how much debt the United States is in, do you care, do you understand what this means?
  The talk about the tax code, the service of our young men and women, getting along etc. that was nice but time  for  talk is past it's time for action.

( I wonder...)
I am sure this"nice" speech would have been a lot different if the Republican had not taken over control of the house. I have to wonder...............

What do you think about what you heard, please leave your comments.

  1. I don't believe most people who heard the President's State of the Union Address believed him, I hope they had better since. He said some nice things but most of it was things he has said before but never did anything about. I couldn't believe he had the nerve to repeat some of the things again.
    I wonder if he believes some of the "stuff" he says?
    I would like to know who writes the stuff he reads.

  2. He can fool some of the people some of the time but I think he has himself fooled. He may/might believe what he says....I doubt it!
