And Bush Has the Gall to Talk About Fiscal Responsibility

Yup. I watched the State of the Union Speech. And I really want to know what reality Bush is living in.

AFSC has just released a new 2 min. video to help people understand the outrageous amount of money that is being spent daily on the Iraq war — at the expense of meeting human needs.

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

    Actually almost all of those right wing politicians who talk about fiscal responsibility spend more when they are in power than the liberals do. Thatcher, Reagan, Mulroney, Harper, Bush, etc. etc.

    They spend it on different things though. Instead of education, welfare, health, it’s military, security, etc.

    Good thing to keep in mind at election time. Better to vote on what you want them to spend your money on than whether they are going to spend money.

    You were actually able to watch and listen? Hats off to you. Dh watched (he thinks its his duty to watch all State of the Union Addresses by any president), but I had to leave the room. Just the sound of that man’s voice makes my blood boil.

    I have been checking your blog for a few months now and find more and more that I agree with. But I cannot tell you which reality Bush lives in – it is too far removed from mine though.

    I too am impressed that you could watch and listen to the SOTU. It was his last one and that pleases me greatly (he’s had too many)!

    I had not yet seen this video and thank you very much for making me aware of it. (Please note that the AFSC website has a petition along with this video.)

  4. Snort. I’m with Kathy. Kudos to you for being able to stay in the room with that man on TV.

  5. LOL about being able to watch the state of the union…this is the first one I have been able to stomach…maybe because I knew that it was his last?

    I will admit to having to not pay really close attention (I was reading blogs at the same time) or it got really frustrating.

    My other favorite part was when he talked about appointing judges who understood what the constitution meant. Please. He only wants judges that interpret the constitution to mean what he wants it to mean. Bush certainly does not seem to care if he violates it or not. Wiretapping without a warrant anyone?Habeas Corpus?

    Bush is someone whose very presence makes me want to throw something at the TV screen. The only other person I have that reaction with is George Allen…and luckily he is gone too!

  6. Bush’s State of the Union Address … *Sigh* … one of those things that makes me glad I don’t have television.
