Oh, this should be rich...
Starts a little more personally, as befits the much more intimate setting.
Personal immigration story -- and his is a good one. Opened with general comments on social mobility in the U.S., moves onto his, cites free markets as the reason and contrasts that with the President's, "tax more, borrow more and spend more."
Damn, he talks purty. Sure wish his party did more of what they talk about: smallerizing gummint.
Whackin' on ObamaCare. And he's not making up the problems some businesses are having affording compliance. It's true. How widespread, I don't know.
Says the Prez won't fight fair. --Well, sir, that's how politics works. Say it but please don't whine.
Ah, he's not -- hits his middle-class, immigrant roots again. "I oppose your plans because I want to protect my neighbors -- hard-working, middle-class..." Oh, please don't be hyping, this will be fact-checked.
Says the President's tax-increase for deficit reduction numbers are unrealistic.
He want the energy sector to grow, too. Now on how, there's disagreement. Well, there would be.
...Pushing for better schools, etc. Standard stuff, really only varies from the President in details. This is why I'm an LP voter.
Student loans.... Yeah, that's a puzzler and all the worse for the lack of jobs for the freshly-degreed.
Onto the deficit again. We're all mild white fish: scrod. Of course, he doesn't quite say that.
Pledges how he loves the MediCare. 'Cos old people will mess you up bad if you don't.
"Accountable, efficient and effective government." Roll back to the 1903 version, please. Bonus: that's before that bastard Wilson segregated it, too.
Oh feh, pious plea for bipartisanship. Et tu, Rubio? C'mon, I send men and women to Washington to spar with one another, not hold hands and sing songs.
More sob stories. With hope!
(This thing is even more content-free than the President's. He's kind of channeling Reagan lite.)
Could have sucked worse. But not Mention One of the Second Amendment. Sigh.
