Original post made on Jan 25, 2012

U.S. Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Menlo Park, said President Obama threw down a "challenge to the Congress" in his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

I agree with Eshoo that there was little surprising in the speech. It was a tired litany of special issue pandering and tinkering with the tax code.

Sadly, there is no hope that either Romney or Gingrich would do any better - they would merely replace one flavor of buffoonery and cronyism with another.

Sadly, Ron Paul is the only candidate that will make any difference. And since the sheep of this country can't see that, we are hosed. Keep voting along party lines ,sheeple. You get what you deserve - no jobs, no leadership and no change.
This country is a joke.

Congresswoman Eshoo is correct when she said "few surprises" especially when you recycle the same message year after year.

Time to replace the broken record.
