Hi I'm bill O Reilly gave thanks for watching us and -- inauguration address number 57.
That is a subject of this evening's talking points memo.
First inaugural address delivered on April 30 1789.
By George Washington.
But not to the folks Washington spoke directly to congress.
He appealed to the new leaders to be moral and just.
Any invoke god in heaven saying quote.
But pitcher with smiles -- have it can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right.
Which heaven itself has would gain -- George Washington appealing for justice.
Fast forward to 2013.
When President Obama made a similar appeal.
Rather than focusing on America's vexing problems like an exploding debt and a weak economy.
Obama put forth that the nation's top priority must be imposing.
We must make hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit.
But we were just.
That America must choose between caring for the generation that built this country.
And investing in the generation will build its future.
When we remember the lessons of our past.
When twilight years were spent in poverty and parents of the child in this building had nowhere to turn.
We do not believe that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky.
-- happiness for the few.
Talking points disagrees with president Obama's priority although social justice is a noble goal it is simply impossible to do with the president wants to do.
-- ensure prosperity and fairness for every American can't be done no matter how much money you spent.
Much more effective.
Is building a strong society based upon a robust free market and effective.
Social programs that provide opportunity.
Rather than charity.
As a president should know by now the federal government cannot survive.
With 320 million people.
And the danger is that mr.
Obama's persistent attempts.
To do that to redistribute.
Will bankrupt the nation.
Causing pain to everyone.
And making it impossible.
For poorly educated or disadvantaged Americans -- cited.
To even make a living.
The president's nineteen minutes address today.
Was not an urgent call for congress to reform entitlements simplify the tax code.
Provide effective oversight on economic abuse or even stimulate the economy.
None of that none of it.
Was on display.
So it is quite clear that the president is willing to go down in history.
As a crusader.
For social justice no matter what happens.
To the economic fabric of the country.
He does not want to cut government spending he does not want to reform entitlements that are not directly threatening the American treasury.
Unless there is a radical change in the president's thinking few problems will be solved over the next four years -- simply get.
-- -- -- -- And -- and out.
