The speech wasn't new. All he did was patch together everything he's been
saying, word for word.
However, the total lack of logic when viewing what he says is, to me,
He's going to cut taxes for umpty ump number of people. Ah, precisely how
is he going to do that when he's said he is going to raise Social Security
On the one hand he talks about inflating tires instead of more drilling and
on the other he votes for "the development of oil and natural gas resources
in coastal areas."
However, I think the worst thing he's said he will do is "provide sufficient
funding for NCLB" while tooting what a great program it is and how it will
work wonderfully if only it was funded. So, if he's elected, that will make
4 in a row that are totally clueless about education and he'll be marching
in lockstep with Read My Lips, Billy Boy and Dumbya when it comes to the
brainwashing of the sheople.
Sheesh, that about says it all about his ability to deal with reality.
