State of the Union: Why Bother?
Red State ^ | 01/27/2014 | Eric Erickson

Posted on 01/27/2014 2:52:07 PM PST by SeekAndFind

I did not watch the Golden Globes this year. I did not watch the Grammys. I am not sure if I will watch the State of the Union address.

Why bother?

A thin skinned amateur who has been in office six years and still can’t grasp how to do his job will stand before an even more thin skinned Parliament of Whores and tell them he does not need them, while knowing he really does need them, while none of them truly want to be with each other, and all have lawyers ready to go bow before the black robed masters who’ll sit stone faced at the front of room knowing they really rule the joint.

My only hope is that the Republicans grow a pair and start laughing uncontrollably when the President begins touting Obamacare, which you know he will do and which you know they will not. Paging Steve Stockman — here’s your moment.

The State of the Union has become a pointless bit of laundry list stagecrap where everyone in D.C. gets to pretend they like each other and together will make magic before leaking how they hate each other and won’t get anything done worthwhile.

What leaks I’ve seen indicate he will be even snarkier than usual. I have no interest.

I think the State of the Union is really for foreign leader consumption. It’s meant to show unity within the gov’t. Whether they buy it anymore I don’t know.

Americans know different of course.

I won’t watch this lowlife ever — not just the SOTU. His presence just makes me want to hurl.

Whatever he is going to propose will have some adverse effect on me.

The repubs would do well to get up and walk out on the pResident when he says he doesn’t need them.
I think we should all take a few days off and watch the govrrnment scramble

Maybe we should call it the State of the Soviet.

It's all about the state of our elected leaders, not the state of the nation.

I loved the idea that the president’s speech was just read to Congress for decades instead of this state opening of parliament ripoff we have to put up with now.

Rush called it the “State of the Coup Address.”

“What I saw at the coup.”

Just hearing zero’s voice infuriates me.

So there is no way I’ll waste the time to watch the commieRATbastard spew his empty platitudes and lies.

What p!sses me off as much are the RINO’s who will sit and
politely applaud his brainless BS.

Not simply politely, it would be done ENTHUSIASTICALLY, with standing ovations. You can count on it, and you can even count them. It’s standard operational procedure.

Mere polite applause will be frowned upon.

For tragic comedy and the need for a good drinking game.
Besides, just listening to him drone on and on while I look up firearms and suppressor information might be fun.

They DO like each other. They PRETEND they don’t.

I suppose I could be bothered to watch Barry the Boob...if I thought that watching an intellectually underdeveloped juvenile delinquent lie to the nation was a worthwhile use of one's time.

But I don't think that.

Indeed. I plan on catching up on the drama’s Revolution & Revenge episodes I dvr’d.

Why would Republicans politicians sit thru a SOTU after Obama called them hostage takers, terrorists etc and threatened to use their legislative powers???? The man has no respect for them at all.

This Kenyan bozo has turned the state of the union speech into a just another campaign speech. A lot of us would like to see a actual American President speak before the congress and actually tell us the actual state of our Union. But no, this will be just another obamafest.

Huge waste of time.

If somebody put a gun to your head and forced you to watch either the SOTU address or the Grammys, which would you choose?

I know, right? Right hand dipped in boiling water, or the left?
