Obama made his big speech last night. He continues to surprise me. I fully expected him to shift into a “it’s really not that bad, things are getting better” mode. Instead, he doubled down. His speech basically amounted to, “Don’t worry Americans, we can get out of this, but only if you let me spend A LOT more money we don’t have.”
Unsurprisingly, Jindal’s response was excellent:
"Who among us would ask our children for a loan, so we could spend money we do not have, on things we do not need?" Jindal asked. "That is precisely what the Democrats in Congress just did."
Here’s another comparison. The democrats are like a gambling addict who just lost his paycheck at the horse races and keeps borrowing more with a gleam in his eye, knowing next time he’ll win.
