Did you guys watch Bush's speech last night? Any thoughts? I thought it was an OK performance, about what I expected. I liked his line that for those that want higher taxes the IRS accepts checks and money orders. I also liked the part about cutting entitlement spending, even though a. it was largely symbolic, as entitlements account for a small % of spending, and b. the Republicans were taking advantage of entitlement spending for 6 years and he did nothing to stop them. In fact Dems have helped make entitlements more transparent. At any rate though, I'm glad they will be cut. The other thing that caught my ear was him saying we're going to stay on schedule to run a surplus in 2012. Um, here's an idea, how about cutting the budget to balance it RIGHT NOW!!!
