“SOTU Address: No Middle Class Economics but Lots of Spin” by Clark Judge

The weekly column from Clark Judge:

SOTU Address: No Middle Class Economics but Lots of Spin

By Clark S. Judge: managing director, White House Writers Group, Inc.; Chairman, Pacific Research Institute

Last week President Obama delivered his next to final State of the Union address. In it, he extolled “middle class economics”, which was the name he attached to his economic policies. The more I listened, the more I thought, this is spin, not reality.

As with many, perhaps most, Americans, when I hear the words “middle class economics”, I think not about my own history but of my family’s. My great grandfather arrived here with his parents and siblings shortly after the Civil War. There is no record of him having much schooling, but the family clearly coveted education. Records show that his sister, who became a teacher, was soon in college, almost unheard of for a girl in the mid-19th century. His father was listed in the census as a laborer, but within the decade the son was partner in a store and later either took over the business or started his own, the records aren’t clear.

2016 And All That: GOP Edition

Monday, January 26, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Thanks to Chuck Todd and the entire Meet the Press team for having me on the panel yesterday.  It is’t everyday you get to hang out in a green room with Tom Brokaw and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and then offer up your assessments of a major political gathering in Iowa, but that was yesterday’s fun and I got out of town and to Hillsdale before the snow began to fly.

Not before leaving behind a column for the Washington Examiner on the increasingly likely prospect of an “open” or “brokered” convention for the GOP on the shores of Lake Erie in the summer of ’16.

Broadcasting from a journalism conference at Hillsdale College for the next three days where the morning temps are in the single digits.  Beautiful college and wonderful students and faculty –among the very best in the country– but they could have founded it in San Diego if they wanted to hold conferences in January.
