Skip to comments.Noonan: The Sleepiness of a Hollow Legend (Pres. Sham-Wow SOU speech)
Posted on 01/25/2014 6:56:59 PM PST by dynachrome
Because when I imagine Barack Obama's State of the Union, I see a handsome, dignified man standing at the podium and behind him Joe Biden, sleeping. And next to him John Boehner, snoring. And arrayed before the president the members, napping.
No one's really listening to the president now. He has been for five years a nonstop windup talk machine. Most of it has been facile, bland, the same rounded words and rounded sentiments, the same soft accusations and excuses. I see him enjoying the sound of his voice as the network newsman leans forward eagerly, intently, nodding at the pearls, enacting interest, for this is the president and he is the anchorman and surely something important is being said with two such important men engaged.

Can’t stand this backstabbing b*tch no matter what she says now.
Good ‘un. After you get through the sentimental part in the beginning.
Sorry Peggy, you drank the Hopenchange kool aid 5 years ago....
Posted @ 6:56.59, dissing posts before even Evelyn Wood could have read it in its entirety from the People magazine crowd that sees only personalities and can’t comprehend ideas.
I can’t imagine listening to one minute of any Obama speech.
Not that what he says is true or untrue, but rather that it is so completely unhinged from truth as to have no meaning. He reads the teleprompter. He neither believes what he says nor does he disbelieve it. Believing or disbelieving is irrelevant, his words are only intended to fill a space.
The press will then run with it, to tell me what I am supposed to think about it. But they neither believe nor disbelieve. The electronic word generator feeds the teleprompter which feeds the electronic propaganda generator, and no one believes or disbelieves, because no one is listening. They get their cues as to what they are supposed to think and say about it, but they are not required to believe or even think about it too closely. Just parrot it. Which is what Obama is doing, and the press, and the party faithful, round and round and back again.
Its all just the humming of the hive.
Yep. I remember this bitc$ drooling over zero.
Either Zero got a pinch hitter for the SOU or dearest Peg got a vivid imagination.
There’s really nothing Noonan can do to rehabilitate herself with conservatives. A former Reagan star-writer who went gaga over the illegal, ilicit Fraud simply cannot hope to regain her place. She’s still a great wordsmith (IMO) but she will never have the audience of yore.
Well written, and I’m getting a kick out of reading the comments whining about Peggy.
We comprehend ideas very well. What we have a problem comprehending is people who refuse to see the obvious, willfully disregard warning signs and won’t pursue highly questionable facts about a candidate. What she says now is really of little interest to me, as the damage is done.
Did noonan have a stroke?
All ego, no principles.
She’s really quick. It only took her 5 years to figure out what most of us extremists knew immediately.
Pray America is Waking
I will listen, only to hear the duck calls.
That being said, she's a "touchy-feely" writer, and it grates.
From the comments:
He will start with a lie right out of the gate...”My fellow Americans”
I had to quit watching her on tv because she always tilts her head to the side. It’s very distracting. Her mother never taught her to sit up straight.
That’s a good one, LOL.
“I cant imagine listening to one minute of any Obama speech.”
Neither can I. The Tourettes response starte kicking in.
“Its all just the humming of the hive”.
Intelligence is irrelevant. Reason is futile.
I wonder if Peggy’s sorry for voting for him now?
Noonan strikes me as the type female that is TERRIFIED of growing old (and NOT being invited to tv interviews anymore.)
She SUPPORTED a “man” with little to no gubmint experience and THIS latest utterence from her says she voted for Benghazi Barry Soebarkah for its/her/his looks!!!
Honey, you’re an embarrassment...go ye and get a facelift. You’ll feel better.
"Liar, Liar, Liar, Liar, Liar, Liar, Liar, Liar, Liar, Liar..."
Now that would be memorable.
White guilt much, Peggy?
In no stretch of the imagination is he “handsome”.
I dunno. Peggy lost a LOT of credibility with me in 2008, but if I were to shun anyone who made a dumb mistake or were bamboozled by the razzle-dazzle, I’d have to shun myself. I didn’t fall for Obama, admittedly, but I’ve screwed up too.
I’m willing to give her another chance, at least to see if she’s really seen the light again.
When I hear the creep talking, I turn off the radio or change channel. Knowing he lies about everything, why listen to more lies.
Besides listening to the slime ball, gives me nausea.
Stuck in a hall with the Liar doing his non-stop lies, said in slow, short sentences using short, simple words...appropriate for 3rd graders or Obamabots, he obviously assumes his supporters are mental midgets. Which come to think of it, is true...what was that about “useful idiots”?
Anyway, to any normal person with functioning brain, a barf bag should be held ready if one insists on listening to the sleaze.
Drag a $100 thru a trailor park and you get Bush.
A $20 and you get a wh*re.
A $5 bill and here is Obama.
And the Wookie.
It is all fraudulent dribble from the liar in cheat.
No, Freepers are angry that she did her part to get this fraud elected in the first place. (That was 4 years before Romney’s run - of course, McCain was worse, but he had a better Veep)
I remember Peggy with her high leather boots, looking like a “working girl” on MSNBC talking about how great Obama was on election night in 2008. There is nothing she can do to ever restore her credibility as a political pundit. When you get something so wrong, you start to become a Dick Morris or a Carl Rove at some point — irrelevant.
Peggy, for that one short paragraph, I forgive you for the lie you wrote for Presient George H. W. Bush, “Read my lips. no new taxes.”
WHO CAN BLAME HIM? Boobamba's prolly scared stiff of the applause from lock-stepping Dems rising to their fight as one (like they had firecrackers under their a**es)..... to applaud Boobamba's signature piece of legislation.
Heck, as far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act :
OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have your choice of doctor.
Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American family would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.
LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1940's ERA EUROPE Obama And The Dumbos marched in lockstep. The persistent Dumbocrat drumbeat ---- in obeisance to Obama ---- kept ringing reassuringly in our ears: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."
SIGNING "THE BIG EFFIN' DEAL"
"Those Democrats leering over my shoulder owe me bigtime. This
healthcare bill insures we have a permanent Democratic majority."
" All except those Tea Party types, swallowed hook, line and sinker my promises that they could:
(1) keep their existing health plans,
(2) keep their own doctors that they like,
(3) keep their 25-year-olds on the family health plan,
(4) never be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition,
(5) sign up instantly on my tech-savvy government Web site,
(6) buy insurance only after becoming seriously ill."
(7) save $2,500 in annual premiums in the bargain....
(8) All without any new taxes."
"Them sonovagun Tea Partiers will rue the day they criticized my wonderful bill."
JUST AN EDUCATED GUESS (CACKLE)-- O/Care must be a debacle---b/c lock-stepping Dems are hiding it as an election issue.
Nanzi Pelosi Says Dems win in 2014 Focusing on The 3 Rs: Recruiting, Raising Cash, Raising Issues.....but Nancy plumb "forgot" to mention "Obamacare"--- the signature legislation of their president. Lock-stepping Dems once said they were so s-u-r-e Americans would love Obama's wonderful healthcare plan, that O/Care is a winning Democrat issue.
Lock-stepping Dems seem to have gotten the heebie jeebies over Obamacare.
"And let me thank every Democrat, who---without exception
---voted for Obamacare---my historic signature legislation."
"Thank you Democrats for reminding every American in every
district: 'if they like their plan, they can keep their plan.' Nice work Democrats."
Noonan is no dumb blonde, casual newswatching, apolitical "typical" American. She knew exactly what she was voting (and shilling) for.
Give me a break. That gal is the biggest abuser of the English language since Ebonics.
