Obama to Push for Massive Spending Cuts in State of the Union Speech

Sorry, did I say cuts? I meant increases, but you probably already figured that out:

President Barack Obama will call for new government spending on infrastructure, education and research in his State of the Union address Tuesday, sharpening his response to Republicans in Congress who are demanding deep budget cuts, people familiar with the speech said.

Mr. Obama will argue that the U.S., even while trying to reduce its budget deficit, must make targeted investments to foster job growth and boost U.S. competitiveness in the world economy. The new spending could include initiatives aimed at building the renewable-energy sector—which received billions of dollars in stimulus funding—and rebuilding roads to improve transportation, people familiar with the matter said.

“Spending our way out of debt” will remain the long-term strategy — at least until it all comes crashing down. This might come as great news to some of the GOP’s dates at the State of the Union/Prom Night speech Tuesday night.

I’d swear we’ve heard this song before. Wasn’t taking care of all of the above the justification for the first load of “stumulus” spending that was such a smashing success?

The extra funding will be intended to encourage people to “build stuff and invent stuff” (one of those inventions better be a device that miraculously makes the debt irrelevant).
