Posted on 12/01/2013 5:54:01 PM PST by Cruz_West_Paul2016
The 2014 State Of The Union is likely to have excellent ratings being over 100 million Americans will be wondering or making bets on whether Obama will bring up any aspect of his health-care plan. Can anyone imagine if the week of the SOTU the site is still non-functional and not even close to one million enrollees? At least we will all be laughing at the speech being most Americans know when their leader is lying to them.Get your popcorn and Big Gulp ready! at least we will be watching Joe Biden fall asleep 23 minutes into the speech.
Maybe someone will have guts to say “You Lie! when he does.
If he does, then:
Of course he will. Facts mean nothing to him.
Is there a 99% probability or a 100% probability that he will say “the launch is a success despite the efforts of the Republicans to damage it!” ?
He will and then blame Republicans.
i will bet 5.00 he will bring up the amazing assassination of Bin Laden of which he was involved with every aspect of the planning and how he felt when he shot him 8 times.
You should always start a speech with a joke.
if 250 million people watched, we would have 250 million people all yell, “Yah Right” !!! at the same time.
Welcome to Free Republic.
I think Der Fuhrer II could claim that 2+2=5 and have 86% of the elecorate cheering.
Okay, maybe 47%.
Of course he will. He will spin even one enrolee as a triumph of HIS agenda. Obummer can do no wrong according to obummer.
REPAL and never try a Federal takeover of the healthcare industry again.
Good if he does. Let’s see which Dims cheer and applaud. That’ll make for a good ad.
He will lie about it like he lies about everything else.
anyone wanna guess if he will say “Republicans In Congress”? aka (those racist slave owners).
Of course he will. And then the web site will crash in the middle of his speech.
Best slapstick since Laurel and Hardy.
I could care less. I ain’t watching it. Will probably be a live thread here and I will get my news here as usual. Can NOT watch the man.
i wonder what body part of chrissy will be vibrating all thru the boring speech.
Just as surely as every five year plan launched by the Politburo was celebrated as a ‘success’ by Pravda, Obamacare will be celebrated as a ‘success’ by Obama.
If ObamaCare is still a disaster and/or Obama’s ratings are still in the 30’s by the time of the SOTU, maybe we’ll at least be spared the usual spectacle of Democratic Congresspersons converging on Obama as he walks down the aisle, hugging, backslapping, and fawning all over him to within an inch of his life, on his way to the podium.
In fact, if the ObamaCare debacle hasn’t ended by the end of January, Obama may well resemble a leper walking into the House chamber to give his speech, as Democrats cringe away from him in fear of being caught in the same camera frame with him. Will anyone applaud what he has to say? Will there be any standing ovations? This could be a major horror show for the Democrats.
Never heard him say a complete sentence and do not intend to start now. Totally ignoring him works to preserve my sanity and keep rage tamped down.
You can be sure of 2 things:
1. He will use first person pronouns at least 180 times in his speech.
2. He will be at least 15 minutes late.
You and me both.
I get physically ill just hearing his voice.
I can’t even listen to clips of his speeches on Rush...I have to switch to the classical music station for a few seconds, and then switch back when I estimate that it’s over...for now.
He will frame it in such a way as to blame the screwed-over taxpayers, suggesting that we should be willing to sacrifice to make America better for all [through Obamacare].
since we’ve been lied to for 5 years already in January, maybe we could take up a collection to pay him to go play more golf that day instead of doing another speech ?
Will he bring up the “knockout” game, so popular with his constituents?
We’re being polled.
Do you mean will obama lie......well duh!
“My fellow comrades, I’m pleased to tell you today that I’ve signed legislation that will outlaw Conservatives forever. We begin executions in five minutes.”
Cocking his head, pinching his fingers, making no mistakes about the bumps in the road, he certainly will boast imperiously.
maybe more than one republican will have the balls to say ‘you lie!’ to the liar.
I won’t know. I won’t be wasting any time watching that prick. I’m sure some tough FReeper will fill us in on that.
If we ever have another President, and it’s a Republican, I would like to see the STFU Speech abolished. It’s a childish spectacle, as Scalia said recently. Let the President send messages to Congress from time to time. And let them be meaningful and substantive. But the Clap Fest must stop!
Of course he will. And like all pieces of crap that the tech industry has marketed over the years he will not note its flaws. He will trumpet them as features
The Republican response damn well better bring it up in their speech.
If the republicans had any dignity they’d all walk out as soon as he insults them.
State Of The Union. Now, THERE is a drinking game waiting to happen...
“Let me be clear...” *drink a shot*
“...my predecessor...” drink a shot*
I would like to see the STFU Speech abolished.
That would require a constitutional amendment:
Same thought that I had...
Note that I said “speech.” Abolishing that requires no change to the Constitution.
Note that I said speech.
Dang. Sometimes I don’t see the forest for the trees.
You are absolutely correct.
COTUS says tell them, not give a speech.
(Now I’m trying to imagine the jug-eared Won not getting in front of the cameras.)
There is no hope that Soetoro will ever forego an opportunity to bask in applause in front of cameras.
