    Ron Paul Slams Obama’s SOTU As “Campaign Speech” [​IMG]

    Obama deals in “typical Washington political gamesmanship that has gotten us exactly nowhere”

    Describing president Obama’s State Of The Union Speech as “rhetoric” and “bragging”, GOP presidential candidate Ron paul said in a statement today that “Instead of offering solutions to the problems our country faces, the President was intent on delivering a campaign speech.”

    The Congressman added that Obama’s speech dealt “in the typical Washington political gamesmanship that has gotten us exactly nowhere close to improving the lives of the American people.”

    Paul noted that Obama seemed to be “bragging” about job creation when his “universal” health care plan was actually “job-destroying”. The Congressman also noted that the Dodd-Frank bill “guarantees future taxpayer bailouts of large institutions.”

    Responding to Obama’s comments on “an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules” Paul said “Yet he remains committed to the same old system of debt, deficits, bailouts, and cronyism that created our economic problems.”

    “The President speaks of giving us energy independence from unstable nations, yet he refuses to allow the type of development needed to achieve this goal, while at the same time his administration hands out favors to the politically connected – those given to the likes of Solyndra, who fail to produce jobs or energy but succeed in ripping off the taxpayers.” Paul urged.

    Pointing out that Obama failed to address the need to balance the federal budget, Paul added that the president “…refuses to even mention the role the Federal Reserve plays in creating an economic system where some are denied a fair shot or even to support my efforts at bringing transparency to the Federal Reserve.”

    The Congressman noted that, in contrast to Obama, his own “Plan to Restore America” would see $1 trillion in real spending cuts in one year. Continued
