Obama’s ‘State Of My Re-election Campaign’ Speech Tonight

Obama’s ‘State Of My Re-election Campaign’ Speech Tonight

In an address to the nation - formerly known as the State of the Union Address - President Barack Obama will dominate every TV set in the country tonight to rattle off his “State of my Re-election Campaign” speech.

President Obama is expected to focus on the economy and restoring the middle class in his State of the Union address Tuesday night -- an annual speech that Obama is using not only to review the condition of the nation, but to attempt to convince voters to let him keep his job next year.

As Republicans slam what they say is a dismal record on fixing the economy and creating work for Americans, the president will discuss ways to grow manufacturing and small businesses, expand exports, reduce dependence on foreign oil and make sure people are prepared for jobs in the 21st century.

He will also discuss ways to create a "strong and durable economy ... one that is fair to everybody," Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett told Fox News on Tuesday.

"A country where everybody plays by the same rules, where there's fairness and equity -- if you work hard you can start a business in a garage and it can grow to a global corporation, but where everybody has that opportunity.  And he will talk about taxes and a fair way to have a tax system where people are paying their fair share," Jarrett said.

In what will be his third State of the Union address, Obama is expected to propose raising the tax rate on dividends and capital gains, which stands at 15 percent.  That rate is the main reason billionaire Warren Buffett pays taxes at a lower rate than his secretary.  Buffett's secretary will sit in first lady Michelle Obama's box for the speech.

The proposal is not new -- he suggested raising the rate to 20 percent for upper income taxpayers in his 2012 budget, released in February last year.  The move would raise $123.6 billion over 10 years.

But as the administration seeks to play up its support for business, entrepreneurs and job creation, all could be hurt by higher taxes on capital gains and dividends.

The small business community is also waiting for the president to provide a plan to get customers through their doors, said Dan Danner, president and CEO of the National Federation of Independent Businesses.

They want "a plan that will create jobs by reducing the constraints that prevent small-business owners, and all Americans who work and shop on Main Street, from investing in the future," he said.

Dell’s Bottom Line:

Blah, Blah, Blah....We’ve heard all of this rhetoric a million times before and - thus far - we’ve seen nothing but disaster from this president and his political party, aided by the Republicans on every crucial issue.

This isn’t news; it’s political BS, designed for one thing and one thing only - the president’s re-election.  We will hear very few truths tonight.  Most of what the President says will be yet another reflection of his Utopian socialist dream.

And just who the Hell cares who’s sitting next to the First Lady?  Do you?  I didn’t think so.  If it was someone who had earned the honor, fine, but Warren Buffett’s secretary is absolutely NOBODY.  The entire country is headed for the financial dumper and Fox News is telling us who will be seated where during the President’s if we really care.

And let’s not forget the Republicans and their “1,000 Days” red buttons.  That’s big news, right?

It’s political business as usual today, yesterday and tomorrow inside the Beltway.  Quite frankly, it’s a sickening display of what’s absolutely wrong with this country.  Nothing that’s said tonight will have any bearing on what’s done tomorrow.  In other words, a total waste of time....yours, mine and 315 million Americans.
