In an effort to review all parts of the State of the Union, we have split the address into three parts – conveniently it works, since there are 3 Conservative Bros. In Part I, I will focus on the beginning of the speech that covered most of the jobs bill, economy, and personal financial issues. MacGregor will cover the second part of the speech that included topics such as Health Care Insurance Reform, Campaign Financing, Defense, Budgeting, Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and much Republican baiting. Finally, Timmy will recap the Republican Response by Gov. Bob McDonnell and look forward.
In general, I found Obama’s first State of the Union address to be very unbalanced, without a centralized message. He was very condescending in most parts, some light-hearted jabs, others, hooks to the jaw. There was minimal to no outreach towards Republicans or apologies for boxing them out of the process in the first year, but many times blame was thrown at the feet of Republicans. It showed the lack of leadership by the man claiming the Republicans were showing no leadership that rather than focus on the failures of his record majority, although it was mentioned, he threw most of the blame at the minority party who had no say in his health bills or most of the 2009 Congressional happenings.
He took some of populist angst towards the economy and made it his own, but also stuck a foot in the sand on some liberal policies that he wants to see passed right away. While many, including myself, expected him to come to the center in this speech like Clinton before him, I found generally he was still looking to pass unpopular policies in the cover of the “for the people” banner. The same policies that have led to defeats in Virginia, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. Some contradictions, some mea culpas, some off the cuff laughs and a LOT of ego. (more…)

My summary of the results from Copenhagen’s Climate Change Summit are more than a week late due to the Holiday Break, but to be honest with you, it really doesn’t matter. For all the hoopla surrounding the fiasco, all the jockeying, pontificating and lugubrious debate had by global delegates for nearly two weeks, they finally agreed on one thing; we need to have more talks. This brilliant idea is being billed as, “The Copenhagen Accords.” What a joke. (more…)

Mr. Obama goes to Copenhagen…
There’s a decent chance you may have viewed the below video from October. It features Lord Christopher Monckton from Great Britain who is a former advisor to Margaraet Thatcher in the 1980’s. In the video Monckton claims to have read the treaty that President Obama and the rest of the countries will sign at the United Nations Climate Summit in Copenhagen Denmark. Although I’m not big on conspiracy theories, and I do not believe Obama will be ceding our US Sovereignty anytime soon…(treaties call for 2/3 Senate approval anyway) the backdrop to this story is extremely important. As many are unaware this conference is even convening, its consequences for the future of our economy are dire and unbelievably far reaching
