” but is required by custom and Constitution to come forth with a report of some kind by a certain time and day. “

I recall reading somewhere that there’s no Constitutional requirement that this report be delivered in the form of a speech, or even ‘in person’ - that, in fact, the first few Presidents just ‘mailed it in’.....

It sounded like a mish mash of a lot of BACCALAUREATE speeches.

The, "We made it", "We are ready for the new future", "We have to go out and make changes", "We are the World", ETC. ETC. ETC.

Anyone remember how boring those were? Just give me the stinking diploma and let me out of here.

“We do Big”

Can’t wait for campaign season. I’m going to slap liberals with that line.

Really? I wonder why?


Let's examine
I refer you to Birth Certificate Vs. Certification Of Live Birth.
But you STILL WON'T ACCEPT THE TRUTH that

Here is some more information and links


I have several witnesses, that have proven to me that Barack Hussein Obama II was born in Kenya.

First witness, Barack Hussein Obama II himself:
The above artice is also found at FreedomsPhoenix.com.
They have a great spoof Birth Certificate you just gotta' see.
Also view the video at Proof Obama Admits He Was Born In Kenya.


Second witnesses, his mother and father, indirectly through their divorce papers. I believe that "indeterminate person" probably SAW the Obama Dunham Divorce Documents BEFORE Page 11 disappeared and viewed the Kenyan Birth Cerfiticate,
thereby telling Ed Hale
The Obama Dunham Divorce Documents are viewable at this location.
There's a great assumption of the time lime at at link.

Third witness, is Barack Hussein Obama II's grandmother,Sarah Hussein Obama:
View the video Barack Obama - Born in Kenya II at Youtube.com.
Watch and LISTEN to the video BARACK OBAMA - BORN IN KENYA - The Documentary - STUNNING!
and prove it to yourself.
Also watch Affidavit and Tape-Proof Obama Born in Kenya.

The fourth witness, Tim Adams,
(It is now confirmed by Hawaii that Tim Adams did indeed work as a senior elections clerk in 2008)The Fifth witness, Michelle Obama.
The Sixth Witness, Kenyan Ambassador Peter Ogego:
The Seventh Witness, James Orengo (the Kenyan Parliament Minister of Lands):

The Eighth Witness, Lucas Daniel Smith,


Case CLOSED!!!

he said, "I know there isn’t a person here who would trade places with any other nation on Earth." Leaving aside the faulty grammar

That actually isn't bad grammar, but there was plenty of bad grammar in the speech.

He rhetorically inquired what happened to the fish when “smoked.”

Then it's the Food and Drug Administration.

Obama's speechwriters are just a bunch of young turks who have no maturity or experience in real life.

They were testing trial balloons up to the last minute and copying and pasting snatches of speeches from the past as things dictated.

No thoughtfulness whatsoever in this Chicago White House.

The thugs lack any imagination, but then that is to be expected from Marxist thugs.

What is inspiring about archaic ideas that have never worked and cause misery for all.

I thought this President was supposed to be some sort of intellectual. Isn’t that what the libs, and some purported conservatives like to say when they talk about how Sarah Palin is not enough of an “intellectual” to be President?

Sounds like he is a Fake:
If men could be counterfit
then you’d be it.

You’re a fake
baby
you can’t conceal it
. . .
You’re a fake
baby
We’ve blown your cover

the iig is up
‘cause we discovered -
You’re a fake
baby
no need to hide it

Can’t change our mind
‘cause we’ve decided -
You’re a fake
baby
and we’re disgusted

The game is through and
man
you’re busted
fake!

some changed lyrics from Alexander ONeil’s song

A delightful review! It highlights at once the sophomoric speechwriter who must have "researched" the materials for inclusion in the speech (probably presenting them to the speech giver without references) and the lack of intellectual depth of the person who accepted the "research" and presented re-phrased and re-worded quotations from others of 20th and 21st Century vintage for all the world to hear and see.

Pity these so-called "intellectuals" have not been immersed in the ideas of liberty, as so beautifully articulated and implemented by America's Founders. Their intent to "reform" government may not mean what citizens think it means--respecting the Constitution's limits on their power.

Now is a good time for true conservatives to read Dr. Russell Kirk's "The Conservative Mind, which can be read online, by the way.

In Kirk's last chapter he reviews the works of poets and writers, quoting lines which now seem to bear a strikinig resemblance to the players on the stage in American politics today.

For instance, in Robert Frost's "A Case for Jefferson," Frost writes of the character Harrison:

"Harrison loves my country too
But wants it all made over new.
. . . .
He dotes on Saturday pork and beans.
But his mind is hardly out of his teens.
With him the love of country means
Blowing it all to smithereens
And having it made over new."

The pseudointellectuals who occupy the White House, the media, and much of Congress fancy themselves "intellectuals."

By their words and actions, however, they display a provinciality reminiscent of that Dr. Kirk recalls as having been described by T. S. Eliot as being one of time and place, having no intellectual grounding in ideas older than their own little experience in dabbling and discussing Mao, Marx, and other theoreticians.

America's written Constitution deserves protectors whose minds are out of their teens in terms of their understanding of civilization's long struggle for liberty.

It certainly deserves protectors who do not consider it a "flawed" document because it does not permit the government it structures to run rough shod over the rights of its "KEEPERS, the People" (Justice Story).

Blasting it "all to smithereens" seems to be the goal of the Far Left which currently has control of the Executive and Legislative branches of the government.

Obama knows he can do and say whatever he want because the media covers for him. Honest historians will be brutal on Obama someday!

Obama needs to choose his sources more carefully. His WTF (Win the Future) slogan came from none other than Newt Gingrich.

It’s great that Obama is being linked to Reagan.. Reagan said that government is the problem and Obama proved it! (Others must have noted this, I just want to agree.)

hmmmmm.....

Early in his address, Obama said that he wanted the nation he leads to be a "light to the world." The last president who set such a mission for the nation he led, and in those exact words, was Woodrow Wilson.

Why do you think Obama brought Biden aboard? Biden is the master of plagiarism.
