Obama’s SOTU: Spend, Spend, Spend, More, More, More!


That seems to be the gist of it

President Barack Obama will call for new government spending on infrastructure, education and research in his State of the Union address Tuesday, sharpening his response to Republicans in Congress who are demanding deep budget cuts, people familiar with the speech said.

Mr. Obama will argue that the U.S., even while trying to reduce its budget deficit, must make targeted investments to foster job growth and boost U.S. competitiveness in the world economy. The new spending could include initiatives aimed at building the renewable-energy sector—which received billions of dollars in stimulus funding—and rebuilding roads to improve transportation, people familiar with the matter said. Money to restructure the No Child Left Behind law’s testing mandates and institute more competitive grants also could be included.

While proposing new spending, Mr. Obama also will lay out significant budget cuts elsewhere, people familiar with the plans say, though they will likely fall short of what Republican lawmakers have requested.

On behalf of everyone who’s in favor of fiscal sanity, Mr. Obama, let me thank you for ceding the issue to the GOP.

Now we just have to hope that the GOP doesn’t follow their usual pattern of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
