And once again, first lady, Michelle Obama, embarrasses the nation by showing up at the State of the Union address in an ugly orange dress that would only be appropriate at a University of Tennessee football game.
What Obama got wrong in the State of the Union!
In his speech, the current president indicated that he regretted not being able to unify the American people. That was one of the items on which he campaigned. Well, excuse me, this president is 100 percent responsible for the divisiveness among the American people. He has sought to divide us racially, socio-economically, religiously, and ethnically. And he has succeeded.
Also, during his initial campaign for president, he indicated that he wanted to fundamentally change the United States of America. What he really meant was that he wanted to destroy the United States of America as we know it. And he just about has. Maybe if we elect a Republican president later this year, we can save this country.
According to http://www.dailysignal.com, Obama got the following wrong in his recently delivered State of the Union address.
- America is in the middle of the longest streak of private-sector job creation in history. While on paper he is right, the economy is far from booming. While there has been some improvement, the labor market remains much weaker than before the recession hit. Unfortunately, much of this improvement comes from Americans dropping out of the labor force. People not looking for work do not count as unemployed.
- The current president boasted that on rooftops from Arizona to New York, solar is saving Americans tens of millions of dollars a year on their energy bills and employs more than coal in jobs that pay better than average. Proponents of renewable energy consistently argue that renewables create more jobs per kilowatt hour and thus are a good investment. If that’s the recipe for job creation and economic growth, we can scrap using machinery to pave roads and grow crops. By Obama’s logic, we can create more jobs by; giving people shovels to perform those duties. That would certainly create jobs, but it would also significantly reduce productivity. If we can produce more energy with less labor, that frees up human resources to be productive elsewhere in the economy.
- The president argued that automation has become uniquely challenging for American workers. Economists have found no historical relationship between automation and employment rates. In the past, workers who lost their jobs because of technology always found new work. Automation only seems like a threat because finding new jobs in Obama’s recovery has been historically difficult. Also, the rate of automation has slowed sharply since 2003. Employers are finding fewer new ways to automate labor in this decade than they did in the last decade. Automation has become a smaller challenger for workers than it was in the past.
- Recklessness on Wall Street did not cause the financial crisis, a host of government policies did. President Clinton’s National Partners in Homeownership set a completely arbitrary goal of increasing home ownership, and it turned out that most qualified homebuyers already owned homes. All the additional lending helped to create a housing bubble and increased consumer debt, and the capital requirements that federal regulators imposed on the financial system spread risky loans throughout the markets.
- Energy is one of the last sectors of the economy that needs help from the federal government or a centralized plan. The laws of supply and demand work. We have an abundance of resources, and a great deal of suppliers producing energy from a mix if energy sources. The global market for energy is a multi-trillion dollar opportunity.
- Obama stated that there are outdated regulations that need to be changed, and there’s red tape that needs to be cut. He’s right. But he has said that many times before. Despite all the talk, his administration has done virtually nothing to reform or repeal the unnecessary red tape. Instead of rooting out outdated rules, he has added on record numbers of new ones. Obama era regulations have cost tax payers $80 billion a year.
I can’t recall anything that this president has done right, yet there are people, Obama zombies I call them, who think he’s the most wonderful thing on the planet Some have even tried to transform him into a spiritual or messianic figure. This is what’s scary and something we
This president got so many things wrong in the State of the Union that it’s going to take more than one article to outline them. Stay tuned.
