Skip to comments.Obama's Sorry State of the Union Speech
Posted on 01/27/2010 9:20:13 PM PST by jodiluvshoes
At roughly 9:48pm EST, in the midst of President Obama's first State of the Union address he begged us to "let him know!"
The president was defending his push for his vision of universal health care when he threw down the challenge in a speech that seemed strangely and wholly disconnected from the experience of the average American family.
As far as expectations for the State of the Union the president's speech was a sizable failure.
By my count President Obama made several significant policy pivots -- for the first time he advocated the use of nuclear power, domestic drilling, clean coal, capital gains tax cuts, spending freezes, and called on Congress to "tighten their belts" just as American families are being forced to do.

Obama is not connected to being a human being; much less to the families of Americans.

Apparently he recognizes that he has hopelessly lost the Democrat votes that put him office, and figures he better start sucking up to Republicans in hopes that he can scrounge up some votes there.
ON OUR NAVELS? ‘S
A state of the union address should be uplifting. When this was over I didn’t feel to good.
The spending freeze I'd like to see is cutting off all foreign aid. And give America aid first.
Barry is still on the “everything is Bush’s Fault” hobbyhorse. I can’t believe has an enormous, expensive team of P.R. handlers and this is the best they can come up with. Not as irritating as Clinton, but more feebly naive. Sounded like a Jimmy Carter on steroids.
That WOULD be better than the eye hazard of watching his mug.
I didnt watch, I am not interested in anything he has to say...however, there are polls on both CNN and MSNBC and I guess folks there think he was great. Maybe we should all vote.
It’s about time someone tells it like it is. It was a horrible speech...probably the worse SOTU speech EVER. I can’t believe what the pundits are saying about how great his speech was...guess they’re drinking that kool-aid again.
Not all. A good chunk of it is aimed, with some success, at making foreign governments more willing to let us use their soil for our military and intel operations, and more willing to share their own intel with us.
On the Fox coverage, there was a camera shot of John McCain telling Lindsey Graham “Blame Bush” in response to one of 0’s “past eight years” comments. Then he repeated it. Cracked me up.
‘”tighten their belts” just as American families are being forced to do.’
Yeah that Michell is really setting an example and that Pelosi too — $400,000 trip to Copenhagen on the tax payer’s dollar. Reason? No reason.
If the American public doesn’t wise up, they never will and they will be the cash cow for every entitlement, every junket, everything owed to the elites.
Chris Matthews actually said he forgot Obama was black for an hour. Some stupidity should require classes, a background check, and a permit.
Always follow the money.
