Obamas Speech the Jindal Response

The Arizona Sentinel

President Obama’s speech last night reminded me of Bill Clintons speeches.  After listening to a bubble head (bush) for 8 years, who couldn’t put two words together, it was welcome change of speaking ability. But its ends there.  Listening to Obama just like Clinton was like listening to a Lawyer making his closing arguments,. Telling the jury what they want to hear,. And having the delivery capabilities that convince even themselves that they are speaking the truth.

As for substance , in my view , it was a good attempt to bring HOPE back into the picture. But again thats where it stops,.. The actions Obama suggests are deficit spending plain and simple.  His statement that he is going to go thru the budget line by line,  sounds  good, but will it happen, not likely.  Obama has already proven that he is not a man of his word.  Lets use NAFTA as an example,  during the campaign he couldn’t get to it soon enough to repeal it.  Now he says its off the table.   So either he is a flip flopper or he just does not understand the importance of the economics of  manufacturing here at home.

The idea that the federal government can wiggle our way out of this mess is just flawed thinking. The Federal Government got us into this in the first place.  Obama wants to drive three issues.  Energy, Health Care and Education. Then the federal government needs to get out of the way.  Printing more money and spreading it around  is just more phony economics. Obama gives a great speech, but it ends there.   Bottom line here , bush was a fool, and Obama is a good speaker.  The truth is Obama  is going to drive America into a socialist state.  And there is nothing the Republicans can do about it. 

At this point , the Republicans may as well , pack up and go home and let the Democrats and Obama have their way with the United States.  They WON.

Now a bit about the Bobby Jindal response last night,… First he sounded like he was talking to a bunch of first graders.   And given the actions of the Republican Party over the last decade,  Jindal was probably told to keep it simple.

But he did strike a nerve with me when he told his story about the the sheriff down in New Orleans that told the Fema Bureaucrats to butt out over private boats that were needed to go out and rescue folks from their roof tops.  Jindal  told the Sheriff to tell the Fema buffoons that if they were going to arrest the sheriff they were going to have to arrest him also,.. Jindal at the time was a Congressman.   Fema told the sheriff that private boats could not go out unless they had insurances and were licensed.   The sheriff told them to go screw them selves. He sent the boats out and thousands were saved.  Here is why this was interesting::

In 2002 Arizona saw one of its most destructive fires in history. Caused by failed forest service management.  Five hundred thousand acres of forest timber was destroyed.  400 homes were destroyed,.. two or three people died , and probably thousands of game animals were caught in the blaze.   At one point a number of us were asked by some locals to volunteers to go back to the fire and build fire lines with dozers , and backhoes.   There were 24 of us that volunteered.  There was also a Caterpillar dealership in Phoenix that brought  brand new dozers up and yellow equipment was being donated from all over the country.  We were already to go.

However , our local fire chief and county sheriff took the side of the U.S. Forest service bureaucrats .   We were told that the brand new dozers did not have seat belts. So they could not be used. “If im running a dozer the last thing I want around me is a dam seat belt”>  And that we were not certified fire fighters,… That decision flat out resulted in the destruction described above. And it will be centuries before this forest is back to its pre-fire condition.  We were told that if we went to work the equipment , that we would be arrested.  A couple of us said fine, lets go , lets make them arrest us.   However as I said yesterday, we are a nation of cowards.

So were are we , well as I see it , we should all just sit back, put in our bid for the monopoly money. Let the Obama , and the democrats, do what ever they are gonna do and then hope that in two years , someone steps up , Maybe people will then listen to Ron Paul.
