Same Ole, Same Ole

No news in the State of the Union last night, other than the President is now in campaign mode. A mild kneebend on nuclear energy and offshore drilling (with, as usual no real specifics) and an almost laughable set of gimmickry tax breaks for the "middle class." Otherwise, it was politics as usual from the President. Too bad if you are looking for a job, so is the President (or will be in three years).

The economy needs to be let alone. It doesn't require government to produce green jobs. The economy can do that by itself if Obama would just get out of the way. The message last night is that the President has learned nothing from the past twelve months and intends to pursue the same partisan, extreme left, grab bag of government take-overs of the economy that he has been pursuing since he took office.

It was the old "do as I say, not as I do." As one pundit noted, this was another of these "chin in the air speeches" with no substance. Agreed.

November cannot get here soon enough.
