I agree that the GOP is trying to find the new fresh face, but I don't necessarily think they are following the democrats playbook as much as they are currently just lost. I also don't think the GOP was really planning on winning this election, which is why some of what I would've called the front runners got out of the race so early in the primary. We'll see in 2010 and 2012 what the GOP is really planing on doing, if they have a plan.

Zeze, I agree. The Republicans are looking for a fresh new face to put on the same stale neo-con ideas. Jill, I can't wait to see what Obama plans to cut. Somehow it hasn't come up yet.

Mich, my honest opinion is that Republicans are trying to be "new and fresh" by recycling the Democrats in their election of Obama. They saw that young, minority, father of two won in 2008 therefore all they have to do is find the Republican version. It is a really bad idea IMO, because everyone will see him as the next Obama ans when you compare a "second" anything to the original the second will fail. Even if you don't like the original, the standard becomes the original subconsciously to most people and "the next____" will always not hold up. (think boy bands and pop stars - there needs to be a long break in between them for the formula to work :D)

"There is nothing that will directly help keep or create jobs." I have heard large numbers of economic experts say otherwise. I think the "size" of the government argument is a bunch of bunk. He is pushing for a government that works smarter not harder, and people just repeat that same canned excuse. First of all, having different priorities doesn't mean anything is growing. He has already said there will be big cuts in his budget, and that hasn't been released yet. Secondly, education, health care reform, roads and energy infrastructure does not a "big government" make. Those are pretty low on the federal version of Maslow's hierarchy of needs! Those aren't extravagant expenditures. The thing about health care is it is killing our country whether the government pays for it or not. It is crippling businesses, individuals, and our government. Something needs to be done to reform it. I don't understand why people act as if Obama is so radical because he confronts the problem.

"Spending on dire priorities is not the same as spending on everything." I agree, but the trillion dollar spending packiage that was just passed is a "spend on everything" package. There is nothing that will directly help keep or create jobs.

"If you actually listened to the man, and not so closely to the right wing media outlets, this wouldn't be a surprise to you. Spending on dire priorities is not the same as spending on everything." Jillness, perhaps if you actually listened closely to the man rather than just taking everything he says at face value, you'd see that he wants to dramatically increase the size of government. Whether you personally think that increase is in dire need is irrelevant.

Okay, CNN is the only network that I can find that is dissecting the address.

He has a very nuanced position on huge bail out bills.

"He doesn't believe in bigger government? Could have fooled me. And, you know, all those people who voted for him..." If you actually listened to the man, and not so closely to the right wing media outlets, this wouldn't be a surprise to you. Spending on dire priorities is not the same as spending on everything. "how will Obama reconcile his promise to slash the deficit, and yet spend what he has promised to fund these new projects." You cut other programs. :)

I had to mute Jindal. Too much self promotion.
starangel82 starangel82 6 years
Yeah, Jindal doesn't impress me as a public speaker.
UnDave35 UnDave35 6 years
It is odd, but it's still better than listening to McCain.
Michelann Michelann 6 years
Does anybody else think Jindal sounds like he's reading us a children's story? His tone and cadence are odd...
starangel82 starangel82 6 years
Nah. I'm still here Dave.
UnDave35 UnDave35 6 years
I was beginning to think that I was talking to myself here..
starangel82 starangel82 6 years
Sorry. 2012.
starangel82 starangel82 6 years
Okay. I feel like he's getting a little too into 'and here is why you should vote for me in 2010' right now.
UnDave35 UnDave35 6 years
He left out "Increase the number of refineries to keep up with the growing demand" He doesn't have my vote for 2012 yet. (But then again, I'm probably running as well...)

I can understand why they don't trust the general public, given how many people are now having their homes foreclosed. The problem is that the government has historically been far worse at keeping track of OUR money.

The feed isn't helping him here. The sound keeps going out.

Ugh... why is Jindal the 'New Hope' for Republicans?
starangel82 starangel82 6 years
Jindal was a pre-exising condition. I love that.
UnDave35 UnDave35 6 years
And here he comes.
UnDave35 UnDave35 6 years
So how will Obama reconcile his promise to slash the deficit, and yet spend what he has promised to fund these new projects?
starangel82 starangel82 6 years
Ack. Sorry for the double post.
