We’ll see what ultimately happens, but he clearly used the appropriate language given the stated purpose of the speech.

    missed POTUS big speech live – caught it DVR via Cspan and the www .. sound like a baby step and a plan .. but I agree with what I’m hearing along the line of “we need certainty for a generation – I’m not going to add a job for a couple years of tax credits and then deal with the legal liabilities of how the person can be let go” .. this mess is systemic not liquidity driven (by the real producers) … well ok / liquidity driven by have not consumers (and generations)

    @ islm I had a meeting on local politics – so thanks to our new world order I could catch it later -(a little more expense to the infrastructure / sorry) .. but to jab at that comment (I think with you) .. we American have to have our football and drink those foreign owned beers .. booyah

    18-24 months ago, why didn’t his speech wordles feature “jobs” prominently — instead of “healthcare”? How many more Solyndras will come of this? How much more blood and money will we spend killing people in the ME? How much more “tax-cut/borrow/inflate-and-spend” instead of returning to “tax-the-rich-and-spend(less)”?

    Now, two years on, where’s the “change”?

  7. Greg0658 says:

    risk getting the 3fer moderation .. the NBC GOP debate .. I’m not hearing any MSM reverberation* on:

    DALE: “I call it my 9-9-9 economic growth plan. Throw out the current tax code, a 9 percent tax on corporate income, our 9 percent tax on personal income and a 9 percent national sales tax. If 10 percent is good enough for God, 9 percent ought to be good enough for the fellow government.
    This will replace all federal income taxes. It’ll replace all federal income taxes.
    It will also replace the payroll tax, so everybody gets some skin in the game. And it replaces the capital gains tax.”

    HUNTSMAN: “the part that what will fix the U.S-China relationship, realistically, is fixing our core right here at home, because our core is weak, and it is broken, and we have no leverage at the negotiating table.”

    * coda .. why is that – a couple businessmen with good black & white resume backgrounds:

    Godfathers Pizza, Burger King, KC Fed Res, Pilsbury
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Huntsman,_Jr.

    …. risk a booted 4th – dump this here & now .. POTUS BHO I’m still in Labors camp – but what is going on in this WTO secret handshake club
    …. wunsacon because HC is a big piece of the puzzle mess .. & thanks for the opportunity for this MSM hit .. On Our Air thanks to drug and scooter commercials (thanks to Medicare) … what will we do here in the good’oleUSA once the savings and HC-Pension Promises are wrung out (what will we do?)

  8. AHodge says:

    hell of a speech
    even the Rs bobbing up and down and applauding (listlessly and unsmiling)
    you know what comes now

  9. number2son says:

    Who gives a damn? Obama is a failure.

  10. wunsacon says:

    >> If 10 percent is good enough for God, 9 percent ought to be good enough for the fellow government.

    Greg, I heard that line before. It’s exasperating to hear. First, these priesticians say “god” but are really referring to their “religious corporation”. Second, their religious corporations don’t build roads, pay for health care, pay for the disabled, pay for the wars (that these religious fuqs goad us into), or do many other things in nearly the quantity that the state/federal governments do. The priests want 10% for doing far less — and even then not until after you give them the opportunity to preach to you and convert you.

    Priesticians want to end secular government so that their religious backers can reclaim power for their religious orders.

  11. wunsacon says:

    AHodge, no, I don’t. Or, I’m not sure. QE3, to pay for it (bc there’s no other way)?

  12. Greg0658 says:

    (no wordle war wished) that was not the response I expected .. religion is early tribal law and 10%* was a wealth tax (guilt imposed) through superstitions in early man

    as far as who builds who (or what) .. stuff exists** because of teams (& societies) .. that reply almost sounds like the senior brain did it all .. so NOT

    I do agree that religion is business and thus should get the tax also

    codas:
    * – specifically in the debate that was a reference point for learn’ed folks and imo not to be taken to deeply (except for its tribal significance)
    ** – stuff exists because society makes us build stuff to survive (and pay taxes)

  13. AHodge says:

    what happens is
    it gets nickel dimed debated endlessly till the mood of the moment disappears
    if we lucky we get basically the extension on payroll tax holiday or the small supp.
    roughly not much net change in fiscal boost
    dont really need QE3 with all $475 bio or with nothing
    10 yr yields less than 2%

  14. wunsacon says:

    Acknowledged, Greg, AHodge.

  15. Greg0658 says:

    “through superstitions in early man” .. bothered me in my away hours .. the 5 distinct provable senses (see, hear, smell, taste, touch) .. I am open to a 6th (or more) sense in this universe .. an interconnected force
