We didn’t have that great of a morning on Today in Iowa. Both of our Sat. interviews didn’t work out because of technical difficulties. We were supposed to talk to Sen Chuck Grassley and Sec Kathleen Sebelius. Neither worked out. For the record we asked Sen Harkin is he wanted to join us live as well and he was not able to make it work.
So the News:
State of the Union
I thought the speech was good. It usually is. Anything you work on for a couple months should be.
That said I think the President needs to put his money where his mouth is on things like bipartisanship. There’s plenty of blame to go around.
I thought the speech sounded a lo like re-election mode. No surprise there either.
I was disappointed that the only jobs the President seems interested in are Union Jobs. There are other people working out there too. Again, re-election mode.
At the same time the Prez is talking about making government more simple…he seemed to be announcing new agencies that would expand the size and scope of government. the Spilled milk like was a little to cute for me…but the point was made. I still don’t think he gets points for cutting regulation like that. If it’s stupid, or outdated it doesn’t belong on the books.
The President is in Iowa today.
I was glad to see a couple things about the visit. the Republican Governor will be at the event and at the airport to welcome the President. He is showing respect to the office even if they disagree politically. Also the host business sounds like it’s a family of Republicans. they also said…this isn’t about politics…it’s about respect for the office of the president. That’s Iowans doing the right thing and making us proud.
Not so proud of 2 of the 4 Republican Presidential candidates. They failed to correct people at campaign events who called the President either a Muslim or those who suggested the President wasn’t from this country.
This shows a appalling lack of character in my opinion. It is pandering and it is beneath a man who aspired to the highest office in the country. Republicans should not allow these ideas to be forwarded in public or private and we should get on to debating actual issues.
I am signed up but I don’t get it. Can someone explain Pinterest to me?
I await your replies
