Murdoch's all you start drawing what's the speech mean to you as far as freedom.
I think the onslaught against liberty will continue unfortunately.
Pres Obama said that the American people don't expect government to solve every problem and it seems that he's there to solve every problem.
We've got us please when he said that it was it was this started -- -- there but we've got up we got fifteen manufacturing hubs geragos will be much cylinder cities.
We've got manufacturing doesn't happen government has to create -- a couple it and and get the Hudson to get the manufacture going.
At the -- college scorecard that delegates Obama bring in a I thought US news and world will report give us updates on which colleges -- doing good job the government's gonna do that press.
Early education are gonna have three years three year old kids going it's going to school in short federal subsidies.
So more activity more government dizziness of course is all gonna cost a lot of money.
The pre school is appealing to people.
He he just wants to give the kids -- head start.
What's wrong with it.
You know I'm I'm highly sympathetic to people wanting to shovel their kids out the door and into the government's hands but.
You know the fact is that head start which is our pilot program for universal preschool has I'm not great record we spend eight billion dollars to get.
Very very little in terms of results and it was a federal study for this that the -- -- -- study.
Showing the results a year later that day that the results near you see you little bit of -- you see if you gains in the preschool years.
Gone by first and in terms of academics and and and similarly bad results in terms of social and the president tonight said fewer than three -- four year old -- rolled.
In preschool like this is a problem while -- -- of course if it's not like.
Overall they government has done great with public schools I -- the last three decades we've doubled or tripled spending depending on how you count scores are at best flat.
We -- -- education well let.
Let's talk about spending are 'cause he says he's not gonna increase the deficit -- -- the graph up we have a spending since the beginning of American.
Quite remarkable to show how.
Most of the life -- the country government was less than 5% of the economy it's only recently that it's.
Gone up and now with sequestration there.
President Obama talked about sudden harsh arbitrary cuts.
Which sound terrible means they are.
Yeah in this that this is what does the frustration is with -- -- better economic effect right I mean what if we try to get people in the room to sit down new line item things.
We're gonna cut this it offends somebody -- constituents so it doesn't get caught I mean you noticed one thing about that ground for couple things about it.
One is that's consistent -- Republican and democratic administrations there's no dip when.
Come down and it goes up if -- Democrats.
Very consistent with both parties.
The other thing -- you don't have any specific talk tonight about entitlement reform which is something again.
That Republicans and Democrats are very bad about what we have sort of -- talk about in time we had -- -- almost everything.
There's a lot of things yeah.
This the president said.
What we have to make some adjustments to Medicare and Marco Rubio said anyone who's in favour of leaving Medicare.
The way it is is in favor of bankrupting it.
That's more honest and I've heard in the past it's an honest talk as far as that goes but when they actually when the time comes to sit down and do something about it really nothing happens -- part of the fiscal cliff.
Discussions just a few weeks ago.
Other Republicans and look we do a little something like maybe push the Medicare Social Security age up one year.
And Harry Reid can be said no no we're not gonna do that so even in that sort of dire circumstance no changes made whatsoever.
Understand -- is supposed to be a time for bold to talk and his version of bold talk on reforming entitlements is.
He used the word -- Months to sort of like let's articles gonna -- let's also keep in mind there is a big announcement 201130400.
Billion in spending that would be cut.
Bipartisan shares apiece this weekend the Washington Post said that this was a mirage there was no spending cuts through minor things here and there may tighten if there's a lot of talking good dance central have trillions been -- but that's been cut for what they wanted to increases that it's not an actual.
-- I think what to write your fond of pointing out the Republicans haven't proposed to killing thing this is very true I think that when we talk about cuts in Washington usually what it means is that you -- you reduce the rate of increase little bit.
-- -- cut -- real cut as we take a program you and it is sending workers home you sell off the building and you take the authorizing legislation put a big X through it.
Then you know -- you've actually cut a program.
The things like the rural Turkish registration was put in by FDR to -- power to appellation they now have that they're not busy putting in broadband Internet in appellation.
I think there's a great place -- started the GOP should fight about ten programs that are -- all antiquated don't work.
And shut them down those will be real cuts -- can start there the Washington Post had a great story recently.
Federal program won't diets -- Christopher Columbus fellowship program -- spent 80% of its money and yeah.
Even President Obama requested it be cut four times Republicans introduced legislation to end that.
And they can't get rid of it because senator Thad Cochran has got to contributor on the board of this group.
Reserves they can't get rid of anything but you don't even have to go to some silly example like Vatican and that what is hilarious but.
But you've also -- just talk about farm subsidies which are -- there's broad bipartisan agreement that.
Farm subsidies are broken there and the same bill as food stamps which gives all kinds of crazy incentives you know when American farmers are not.
In trouble right now and yet we cut them dozens of checks every -- including people who live in Manhattan and technically on a farm.
He's number of them clearly the night I was yeah yeah yeah and my -- evidence and yet the farms of these growing -- forever.
And will presumably continue after that Super Bowl out when we found that the farmers the back from America that's.
Percent college students in the audio this audience let's talk about what he said about college com.
He he's gonna have this score card and in fairness.
Yes he was news and world report doesn't but I think they're promising they're gonna figure out who gets jobs and.
-- be better.
Well -- you know Bill Gates gave his annual address on on.
Issues facing the world and he too said we need to rework our scorecard on education so.
We'll have -- big slug US news.
And then we'll have a government version but no one reads that's badly for mad -- that you can't find on the Internet except for -- PDF that like you have to download -- -- It's actually five million dollars fort anybody idol definitely costs.
-- a lot.
I was struck by what he set about climate change when.
We must do more to combat climate change and there is overwhelming.
Judgment of scientists that.
And it was caused by climate change -- and -- and sleight of hand I didn't credit for for being that sort of led devious Aventis.
The previous sentence has sent -- the next sentence has overwhelming evidence there is not overwhelming evidence.
The climate change caused her cancer and there is no evidence that because certainly there's there's evidence that may be the sea level rises had you know amid the water there's no evidence -- -- hurricane itself in the frequencies of these -- cans are the result of climate change.
It's just bunker that right that's a lot of bunk in this but what's just pick on this -- government.
That is is you know another kind of you have thrown out there hopefully get some federal program intended to solve this is nothing what there is a lot of evidence that -- climate is more -- yes absolutely.
But I think I think climate change might have been responsible for the full moon that was of a very large factor in the destruction of -- San.
You must like it that he's getting the troops out of Afghanistan.
Who goes -- starts best.
I think what -- then again we're speaking of sleight of hand let's go back to back.
The we're gonna go down to a troop level incidentally -- about the same level if not slightly more than when President Bush.
Left office why is that going to lower than when bush left -- -- Obama doesn't mention that he tried eight troop surge in Afghanistan.
They've failed miserably so I mean we're not looking for victory here which is typically what you hear in these sorts of situations.
-- are gonna get the troops out and yet we're going to have a strong presence in the world empty phrases troops come out.
Afghanistan's still a complete colossal mess cancer last one for you the president said.
Women should earn a living equal -- their efforts passed the paycheck fairness act.
I do hope to earn a living equal to my efforts I think the paycheck fairness act we'll have exactly nothing to do with that.
