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.

Zero is worse than a liar. He is a Bull$#!++er. A liar cares about the truth, and tries to conceal it. Zero doesn’t care ... he’ll do anything, say anything ... true, half-true, distorted, outright false ... doesn’t matter ... it’s all about furthering his agenda: 1) Self aggrandizement 2) Destroy America.
Easy one Quix. It was all LIES!
........for the first time he advocated the use of nuclear power......
And who will benefit? He and Rahm and Axlerod
Read this piece....
A current passport.
NO DOUBT OF THAT . . . before the speech!
“doesnt matter ... its all about furthering his agenda: 1) Self aggrandizement 2) Destroy America.”
So far, he has been a lot more successful at #2.
Take the SOTU speeches with a grain of salt. He called for Republican ideas on health reform. But he didn’t mention two different democrat bills passed and hung in the two houses of congress. Before those were passed last summer Obama said the same thing in a TV address, about Republicans coming up with ideas. It was meaningless because he couldn’t and can’t pass a bill in the liberal House that has republican ideas. That point was missed in his speech.
This is all show. He thinks we are stupid
God’s surprises will catch up with them. Not sure when.
got that covered . . . in it’s own pocket.
And doesn't particularly want to include republican ideas in bills even if they could pass, unless he thinks he will get a huge concession (e. g. crap and trade) in return.
Only thing I remember agreeing with is that everybody hates the bank bailouts. However, when he says that "we have recovered" most of the TARP money, he means he has it, not "we," as his petty cash fund.
“However, when he says that “we have recovered” most of the TARP money, he means he has it, not “we,” as his petty cash fund. “
Yeah, the lying thief stole the payback money.
Federal prison for the “First affirmative action TOTUS”
why give money to countries who hate us and they line their own pockets.
If that’s really the case, then we shouldn’t. But that certainly isn’t the case with all the countries we give aid to. In some cases the government leaders are reasonable people, but are dealing with teeming masses of ignorant impoverished people who are easily led astray by nongovernment influences such as jihadists or communist/fascist-type revolutionary groups. In those situations, providing aid through the governments weakens the relative influence of the extremist groups on the population, which is definitely to our advantage.
Geitner, Bernake, and the criminality of the bailouts.
This is the largest theft in recorded history, and the most treasonous betrayal of one's own people since, well, since George Soros sold Jews to Nazis.
GALACTICALLY BEYOND HORRENDOUS TO THE MAX.
I think a State of the Union should accurately report the state of the Union.
