    Sen. Demint on SOTU


    Sen. Jim DeMint on Obama's SOTU:

    “Frankly, I can’t believe what he says anymore”. “It was really hard to take it seriously.” Obama’s “duplicity,” DeMint argues, was the key takeaway. “It was hard to listen to the contradictions.”

    On spending, “he promised so much more, which he called ‘investment,’ while calling on Congress to cut. Yet his idea of cutting spending is to put it on cruise control at the highest level we’ve ever seen,” DeMint says. “None of that made a lot of sense.” And on health care, the president “just laughed at folks who disagree.”

    Still, DeMint acknowledges, the president avoided making a major political gaffe. “Unless you are quite discerning about it, this was a very persuasive speech. He knows what he’s doing.”

    “If I had not seen what the president had done over the last two years, I would have thought he was a free-market capitalist who believes in individualism, hard work, and opportunity,” DeMint muses. “But everything he has done has been contrary to that — more central planning, top-down government control.”
