Silly libertarians, President Obama doesn't want business growth, he wants job growth. Stay on topic, would ya?

(5:15) In response to last year's SOTU line "America must move off, a permanent war footing" Gene Healy asks, "When, exactly?"

(6:50) "There's no government in the world that can stop geology."

But they didn't even mention my personal favorite:

"Of course, nothing helps families make ends meet like higher wages. That's why this Congress still needs to pass a law that makes sure a woman is paid the same as a man for doing the same work. Really. It's 2015. It's time," Mr. Obama said during the speech.

But I thought gender paycheck fairness was what the Billy Bedwetter law was all about? In 2009.

Optimist! He wants neither - he wants dependency growth. He only needs enough job growth to form a tax base for the permanent dependency class. Obama is no different than LBJ in that regard, with the expectation that the new dependent class "will vote Democrat for the next two hundred years."
