    I already covered a clip of Obama’s major speech at a campaign rally in Ohio earlier today, but for regular readers familiar with my feelings on the manner in which President Obama mistakenly employs the word “investments” — you’ll understand why I can’t let this one go.

    But it was only after he listed all of those lovely ways in which the federal government plans to spend more of our money on our behalf, did President Obama get around to the single largest impediment to our economic progress and our national security: Our tremendous national debt. And while he was most verbose about his many ideas for spending more money and increasing the federal government’s role in our lives, the extent of the president’s plan for reducing our debt and deficit amounted to, “Let’s do it in a responsible way.” …Uh huh. Kind of like all of that responsible spending in which you’ve actively engaged, adding more to the deficit in your first three years than President Bush so “unpatriotically” did during his entire two-term tenure?

    all of it here

    And this is why the GOP has gotten so out of whack.

    Hey, remember you had a Republican Presdient named Eisenhower, who invested hundreds of billions into an interstate highway program? He saw how the Autobahn's in Germany worked very well and decided we needed one of those to help our economic and military strength.

    Today, they'd call him a RINO and a Socialist for proposing that. What, take away from Rich people to build highways ANYONE can use? For Free?

    But Joe....only entrepreneurs can see the future....don't you know that? That the Private Sector is the ONLY avenue for innovation? They aren't trying to protect their livelihoods by screaming in favor of fossil fuels and screaming louder against renewables....they KNOW that those technologies will never be viable because they can see the future and they know what's best for them....er.....us.
