Is this another imitation of St. Paul being all things to all people?

Joe appears to be playing the role of useful idiot.

Just about everything he said about the State of the Union is dumb, and let me point to two:

1. Early childhood education. We already have Head Start, which devours $10 billion-plus of our tax dollars each year, and studies have found it doesn't work. So why another program?

Getting kids ready for school sounds nice, but it's pure feel-good. Shame on Joe.

2. Raising the minimum wage to $9 an hour. Don't the liberals understand that doing that increases the cost of products and services? So a kid making $9 an hour may see a slightly bigger paycheck, but he'll have to pay more for his burgers, etc.

The vast majority of the people earning minimum wage are kids in their first jobs who are trying to earn money for gasoline, dating and booze. They're not adults trying to support a wife and two kids.

Again, feel-good legislation, and Joe falls for it hook, line and sinker.

I get the feeling he's turning into a disaster
