State of the Union 2012
The State of Union. The Political Superbowl. The day when policy is the talk of nation. What do you want to do to help the US, and how are you going to do it. Sure, it’s all politics, it’s all theater, it’s all feeding the beast.
But it is really all policy, and for policy nerds, it’s a great event.
TRC is watching for several points outside of the main event, which apparently will be the “middle class.” TRC wants to hear about energy and climate change, a desire to strengthen the space program, technology support and funding for R&D regardless of the Solyndra mess, gay marriage, a few other things.
The Republican Party has declared their number 1 priority: Defeating Obama in 2012. TRC wants to know what Obama is going to do to make sure that does not happen. We all know that President Obama cannot pass any legislation this year, so, Mr President, what are you going to do about?
We’ll be sure to let you know what we think.
