This will be a VERY short post - it needn’t be longer. I watched Pres. Obama’s SOTU address last night for as long as I could keep my blood pressure under control.
Here are the two things you need to know in order to translate Obama’s rhetoric:
- This nation’s problems can best be solved by the federal government.
- The word “investment” took center stage in Obama’s address. Investment, as he used the term, is a code word for increased federal spending and higher taxes and higher energy prices.
There, that’s the translation/essence of the two basic points he made.
