Obama’s speech was nothing more than a rerun of his first presidential campaign: More promises he cannot or will never keep. I truly wish I could believe but believing once was enough for me. This speech was more of the same presidential posturing aimed at our hearts and not our heads. The Democratic party has become a seething nest progressives, using a heraldic cry for class warfare, which they’ve used to their advantage publicly for decades as they cut us off at the knees behind their closed doors. No more. I’m done.

Obama made a great observation in yesterday’s speech. Most of these ideas are only partisan in Washington. In most of America, they are just common sense.

Think about the correlation between the Occupy Movement (seen mostly as left-leaning) and the Tea Party (seen mostly as right-leaning). They have very similar ideas, and if we focus on those things that we agree on, we should have a path forward. It is political obstructionism and brinksmanship by both parties in Washington that creates the caustic atmosphere and do-nothing-government.

I like where he wants to take the country and I believe the changes are absolutely necessary. He truly sees and grasps the big picture. America needs his vision. Old policies and ideologies got us out of step with the world and into the mess we are finally escaping.
