President's State of the Base Address

The president has issued an advance edition of the State of the Union Address... further evidence of how politics works now. These guys don't care about helping the country, they care about winning the base.

Three days from now, on Tuesday, January 25th, I will stand before Congress and the country to discuss the State of the Union.

Two years ago, when I first addressed a joint session of Congress, this country faced a crisis unlike anything since the Great Depression—an economy that had spiraled out of control, putting millions out of work.

Here's how the president says he's dealing with our economic trouble.

By dealing with our deficits and our debt in a responsible way, and reforming government so that it's leaner and smarter for the 21st century.

Nice try. After Obamacare, the federal government will never be leaner and smarter.
