There were three views of the President’s State of the Union speech last night; the Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.
From my seat as a Democrats I really felt sorry for the president. His speech was tough filled with the American dream and appealing to the working class. But…can he garner support for programs, even from his own party that will level the playing field between the wealthy and the working class?
I doubt it, and looking at House Speaker John Boehner’s lips I could read, “Read my lips, no new taxes”, and “if you think I’m going to support your programs and the little guy, I have a bridge to sell you”, and finally, “Over my dead body will I give you anything you want.”
If the president is elected and the House remains in Republican control which it probably will, then we will have more of the same from the House; NO.
