NetRight Daily: Worst Week for Obama 

White House "Panic Week":  Barack Obama's "Panic Week" has come and gone, but did his White House learn anything from the historic repudiation of his leftist agenda? Putting the question another way, has Obama made the necessary course corrections or is he still refusing to hear the message that America is sending him so loudly and clearly?

Climategate Ignored in Coverage of SEC Ruling:  Global warming alarmism took some big hits toward the end of the last year with "climategate" and the collapse of treaty talks in Copenhagen. This might explain why front page coverage of the topic has fallen off quite dramatically in recent weeks. But there's an interesting New York Times piece in the business section concerning "interpretitive guidance"  the Securities and Exchange Council (SEC)  issued to help companies determine when they should disclose potential risks related to climate change.

Book Review:  In Search of Self-Governance by Scott Rasmussen:  No one has his finger more firmly planted on the American people's pulse than public opinion pollster Scott Rasmussen. His popular Rasmussen Reports have taking polling to a new level of accuracy, prompting Washington Examiner columnist Michael Barone to observe, "the best place to look for polls that are spot on is RasmussenReports.com."

AFP - Obama's Coming to Nashua Next Tuesday 

Last night from Concord, New Hampshire , I watched with other grassroots activists at our Americans for Prosperity town hall meeting as President Obama attempted to pass himself off as a job-creating, fiscal conservative who cares about American taxpayers.  I couldn’t believe my ears.

You and I know better because we witnessed his big-government, tax-and-spend liberal agenda all last year.  We know the national debt has grown under his administration and government spending has increased 22%.

We can’t let his voice be the only one Congress hears when they go to vote on key legislation in session.

Now more than ever we must exercise our free speech rights and let Obama know that he does not represent you and I, and we will not accept his schemes that will jeopardize our nation’s prosperity.

Next Tuesday, Obama travels to Nashua to try and convince the people of New Hampshire and our Massachusetts neighbors that his plan is the right plan. We will be there waiting for him, and we will not be silent.

Join me and hundreds of grassroots activists for a town hall immediately following the President’s remarks in Nashua next Tuesday.

The details of his visit have not yet been released—I will send them as soon as I receive word. But please commit your time on Tuesday, Feb. 2 nd to stand up to Obama and remind him that HE works for US.

Hope to see you next Tuesday in Nashua,

Corey R. Lewandowski

NHDP - Statement from NHDP Chair Ray Buckley on the SOTU 

Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair, Ray Buckley, released the following statement on President Obama's State of the Union address.

"Tonight President Obama delivered a forceful State of the Union Address that outlined a strong agenda for rebuilding our economy, creating new jobs, and finishing the hard work necessary to reform our broken health care system."

 

"The President's address was a powerful reminder of why the American people chose him to lead our country through the most challenging time of our lives. After eight failed years of Republican leadership we are in the deepest recession since the Great Depression."

 

"Thanks to President Obama's leadership and Democrats in the United States House and Senate, I'm confident that we will be successful in building a New Foundation of prosperity for families and business that is essential to moving our country forward."

Statement by MN Gov Pawlenty on Obama's Address 

“While I disagree with his proposed direction, I agree with President Obama that education, health care and the deficit are critical challenges for our country. Our nation’s debt is a growing crisis that puts the country’s security at risk. Freezing some spending won’t solve the crisis – we need to actually cut spending. If we set priorities, make tough choices and reject tax hikes, we can create jobs without continuing to run up irresponsible debt.

“In the long run, our schools simply must do a better job of educating children if America is going to remain competitive. That’s why I’ve pushed to hold teachers accountable with a groundbreaking performance-pay system in Minnesota – reforms that I hope the President will push nationwide.

“Minnesota has also led the way on health care, passing reforms to move the system towards paying for and achieving better health care outcomes. Democrats should listen to voters, stop pushing a government-takeover of health care, and join with Republicans to pass reforms that will cut health care costs.”
