I still don't know what the state of the Union is after watching Mr. Obama's speech. It seemed to be more of an exercise in insulting the American people, the Supreme Court and those members of Congress who refuse to do his bidding, than an update on where we are now.
I will freely admit that I did not watch the entire speech. We were at a Bible study during the first bit and when we got home, my three lie/speech limit was quickly reached. (Actually my son was working on his SOTU Barack Bingo card and had to shush me. His exact words were "Mom, I can't hear if he's saying anything on my card with you back there saying "liar, liar, pants on fire".
Here are just a few of the bits that really annoyed me.:
The overwhelming evidence for global warming - Has no one told Mr. Obama that when the base information for a scientific conclusion can be shown to be fallacious or questionable that the conclusion then becomes fallacious/questionable as well?
I refuse to pass this burden on to future generations - The deficit/debt has been regulated to the point that it will double under his administration, with his encouragement and approval and he can comment about not wanting to pass on burdens to future generations?
No lobbyists in my administration. There are at least 12 former professional lobbyists employed by this administration.
Transparency - Really?, then where is the C-Span coverage of the closed door meetings on healthcare?
We must increase our exports by ?% - Does he think he can force the citizens of other countries to consume more of our products legislatively?
America must lead - And I'm to take this seriously from a man who has spent a part of nearly every international trip he has taken apologizing for America?
Does this man, or his speechwriters, believe that none of the American people can remember things longer than a goldfish? But at least I'm not a member of the SCOTUS or Congress who had to sit there politely while he insulted them to their faces. So, I wonder what the state of the union is when the individual currently sitting in the office of the president believes such behavior is appropriate for this speech.
