“…If you skipped the State Of The Union speech (and I couldn’t blame you if you did…), then you missed roughly an hour of our president insulting our intelligence and lying about objective facts and figures.
So, basically, no real surprises…”
And how was THIS year’s speech? The same. Actually, almost exactly the same. To the point that it will be easier to focus on this year’s differences, because the similarities would take much, much longer.
That was Guy Benson’s über succinct and sniper-level accurate take on the President’s latest “pep rally” on the Affordable Care Act. Nothing new, nothing insightful: just more of the same sclerotic verbiage which we’ve heard from him so often, I’m surprised I don’t mumble it in my sleep.
It was …unusual. He at once made the case for striking Syria, even as he gave support for continuing diplomacy à la Russia and John Kerry’s verbal gaffes. Which is it?
Should we bomb everything that moves because Chemical Weapons are an affront to the civilized world, or should we trust that Russia’s Putin will help us hold Assad accountable by making him pinkie-promise to never kill his citizens in that particular way again?
Well, the President gave yet another “epic speech” the other day. Don’t feel bad if you missed it, though. Gilligan’s Island re-runs hold more mystery than the contents of Obama’s speeches at this point.
After his second consecutive budget just went up in Phoenix-quality flames (414-0) last week, you might imagine that President Genius would have something better to do than hurl rhetorical rocks at folks that are trying to get some ACTUAL WORK accomplished.
Of course, if you have seen ONE of Obama’s speeches, you just might have seen them ALL.
And, if you have NOT had a chance to watch Rep. Paul Ryan explain the debt crisis in which we are currently ensconced, you owe it to yourself to be at least passingly familiar with his argument. The Republican budget solutions will always get short shrift in the Boston Globes and on the NBCs. Assessing it for yourself is the ONLY way to be intellectually honest…….if that sort of thing is important to ya’, of course……
As you watch one of his vids for the Path To Prosperity, just remind yourself that THIS is the guy that Obama is trying to paint as “extreme”.
