WASHINGTON, Jan. 27 Former presidential candidate Gary Bauer said Wednesday, on the eve of the President's State of the Union address, that "it's not too late" for Obama to save his presidency but only if he changes course.
The president of American Values and chairman of the Campaign for Working Families made the following statement:
"It is not too late for President Obama to regain the confidence of the American people, but it is too late for Obama to ram through more big government, higher tax, and big deficit proposals that are actually preventing economic growth. A skeptical public now rejects Obama's plans to take over large segments of the economy. The fact that Obama's health care proposals included fines for hard-working Americans who don't buy insurance says it all. Average Americans do not want Washington politicians running their lives.
"A State of the Union Address that recommits to big government, to more regulation and to anti-free enterprise doctrines will be rejected by the voters in 2010. This is a moment of decision for Obama.
"Unfortunately, the president appears to be in denial. In the wake of tremendous losses in Virginia, New Jersey and the very blue Massachusetts, Obama and his spokespeople claimed that the rejection of Democrats was somehow a win for him and his ideas. The time is now for the president to scale back grand, socialist plans in favor of policies that stimulate investment, job growth and entrepreneurship."
