Obama gives a speech studded with claims about his own “boldness” while punting on all the important issues and only offering cute-sounding, poll-tested anecdotes about the wonders of government intervention. Solar shingles! Fuel made from sunlight and water! High speed trains!
None of these address the central problem this nation faces, which is that we are going bankrupt and in fact stand on the edge of a financial precipice.
The GOP should be pounding on this theme for the next two years, for two reasons. First, it’s good politically to gain support and sympathy for our policies. Second, and most importantly, we need to implement real reform and cuts or this country is going to be in deep trouble. And without clear leadership by the President, nothing will get done.
