Ron Paul Responds To Obama’s State Of The Union Speech

January 25, 2012
Rep. Ron Paul

“Tonight, President Obama once again showed that he does not represent the fundamental change this country needs.” Instead of offering solutions to the problems our country faces, the President was intent on delivering a campaign speech, further dealing in the typical Washington political gamesmanship that has gotten us exactly nowhere close to improving the lives of the American people.

“In a speech where much of the rhetoric was devoted to job creation, it was strange that President Obama would brag about his job-destroying national health care plan, Obamacare, and the Dodd-Frank bill, which, contrary to the President’s claims, guarantees future taxpayer bailouts of large institutions. Unfortunately, President Obama’s ‘job creation’ policies amount to little more than continuing to allow government bureaucrats to pick winners and losers, which is a recipe for continued economic stagnation.

“President Obama claims to want an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules. Yet he remains committed to the same old system of debt, deficits, bailouts, and cronyism that created our economic problems. The President speaks of giving us energy independence from unstable nations, yet he refuses to allow the type of development needed to achieve this goal, while at the same time his administration hands out favors to the politically connected – those given to the likes of Solyndra, who fail to produce jobs or energy but succeed in ripping off the taxpayers.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Ron Paul is correct on the important issues. Whether you are progressive or conservative, interventionist or libertarian, we all have to agree that Paul’s record is one of consistency, integrity, and unfailing adherence to our fundamental liberties enshrined in our Constitution. This country needs Ron Paul in 2012 just as it needed Lincoln in 1860. Paul deserves a chance to turn things around and make his point. As I tell his critics, like the good doctor he is, Paul will certainly do no harm.
