Please feel free to add your own editorial to mine, Id like to send it to whitehouse.gov in a few days...

To me, this guy had no credibility. Talking about both sides of his mouth, spending money like a gold miner at a whorehouse and smiling through it all.

(here comes HSA for that comment)

oh well

10. Now is the time to jump-start job creation, re-start lending, and invest in areas like energy, health care, and education that will grow our economy, even as we make hard choices to bring our deficit down. That is what my economic agenda is designed to do {yeah i believe that one}

9. banks

So I know how unpopular it is to be seen as helping banks right now, especially when everyone is suffering in part from their bad decisions. I promise you: I get it {do you??}

That's what this is about. It's not about helping banks; it's about helping people. {ohh yeahh i forgot!}

8. health care

“The cost of health care eats up more and more of our savings each year, yet we keep delaying reform.” {socialist health care yippie!}
“Given these facts, we can no longer afford to put health care reform on hold. We can't afford to do it.” {i have to drill this into your head...}

“So let there be no doubt: Health care reform cannot wait, it must not wait, and it will not wait another year.” {please watch my eyes, you will comply...}

7. spending

And though all of these challenges went unsolved, we still managed to spend more money and pile up more debt, both as individuals and through our government, than ever before. {err, really?, Im the one losing the inflation battle}

Here in Washington, we've all seen how quickly good intentions can turn into broken promises and wasteful spending. And with a plan of this scale comes enormous responsibility to get it right. {which you will fuck up}

And yesterday, I -- I held a fiscal summit where I pledged to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term in office. My administration has also begun to go line by line through the federal budget in order to eliminate wasteful and ineffective programs {oh thats why the deficit is INCREASING!}

Given these realities, everyone in this chamber -- Democrats and Republicans -- will have to sacrifice some worthy priorities for which there are no dollars, and that includes me. {24 new helicopters need I say more}

6. As you can imagine, this is a process that will take some time, but we have already identified $2 trillion in savings over the next decade. {imagine what the deficit would have been if he hadnt done that!}

5. And tonight I am grateful that this Congress delivered and pleased to say that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is now law. {arent we all??}

4. Over -- over the next two years, this plan will save or create 3.5 million jobs. More than 90 percent of these jobs will be in the private sector, jobs rebuilding our roads and bridges, constructing wind turbines and solar panels, laying broadband and blah blah.. {I think he got the 90% wrong, its more like 90% for the government...}

3. But to truly transform our economy, to protect our security and save our planet from the ravages of climate change, we need to ultimately make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy. {the "ravages" are you scared yet?}

2. And if we do, if we come together and lift this nation from the depths of this crisis, if we put our people back to work and restart the engine of our prosperity, if we confront without fear the challenges of our time and summon that enduring spirit of an America that does not quit, then some day, years from now, our children can tell their children that this was the time when we performed, in the words that are carved into this very chamber, "something worthy to be remembered." {dont worry I wont ever forget get how bad things are messed up}

1. If your family earns less than $250,000 a year, a quarter-million dollars a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime. {wanna bet on it??}

I'm currently blogging about this. It's getting really long, so I have to split it into two parts, as it's basically breaking down the speech line by line. My eyes are so crossed right now, I have no idea whether some of the information is correct or not! I've got the first half up right now, complete with Schiff's response and a video of the speech at the bottom. I have to revise it so that I can come to a conclusion; my nice little essay turned into an uber mess of epic proportions!
