Obama's State of the Union agenda: Yes, I get it
AP via Breitbart ^ | Jan 23,2010 | Ben Feller

WASHINGTON (AP) - Seizing a chance to reconnect, President Barack Obama will use his first State of the Union address to try to persuade the people of a frustrated nation that he's on their side, with a familiar sounding agenda recast to relate better to everyday struggles. In a time of deep economic insecurity, Obama will use this stage on Wednesday to offer hope after a grueling, grinding first year of his presidency, aides say. For the many who think the United States is still on the wrong track, Obama will attempt to present a clearer sense of how everything he's pursuing fits together to help.

I am ceaselessly amazed by supposed “journalists” ability to ignore every fact of Barack Obama’s whole political career in order to regurgitate propaganda to suit the latest PR meme from the Democrat National Committee.

0 has made no effort to build any consensus with anyone outside his own political cliche. His whole political career has been build on demonizing one straw-man or another.

This is just more of the same old same old.

If he uses the same theme in his speech in Cleveland that he’s one of us, that he’s fighting the bad guys, like greedy Wall Street etc. then he is more clueless than I thought.

But then of course how hard would it be to accept the idea that the majority of Americans don’t like his ideas or policies.

He gets it... until he starts telling us just how much we'll have to pay, how much bigger a government we need and how it can help us get to the Promised Land. Yeah, sure.

No kidding.
0bama doesn’t get it if he thinks he can repackage the same radical leftwing agenda. It is the substance of his agenda that America has rejected.

Instead what 0bama is really saying is that the American people are too stupid to get it. He just didn’t explain himself in dumbed down language enough for us to understand why he is right. So he’s going to try again, but with smaller words.

“President Barack Obama will use his first State of the Union address to try to persuade the people of a frustrated nation that he’s on their side,”

More talk is NOT the answer! He needs to think more about what’s he’s doing to us and not how he’s selling it!! Will he ever get a clue?

I always watched the SOTU, even watched Clintons. (I was too poor to own a tv during Carters, so that doesn’t count)

This is going to be the first one I am going to skip. The man is constantly on TV lying to my face. I’m done with it.

Obamanation: “Yes, I get it” =

“let me explain once again how all this ‘anger’ and frustration is really a result of eviiilllll Bush/Cheney, and that I need a few more months and years to complete the far-left takeover of the federal govt. Then we will all dwell in beautiful leftist paradise.”

“It’s” is the contraction for “it is.” Where as “its” is the possessive for “it.” Just saying. Good spelling is helpful when you call others “idiots.”

His ship has sailed. I’ve said it before that I know a number of young independants and republicans who voted for him. They believed his lies about transforming American politics and bringing people together to build a better country. They now know it was a giant con and many have finally done some research and see he has been a life long socialist con-man.

There is nothing this clown can say that will change anybody’s mind. He is incapable of getting it, and yet the people have gotten it quite clearly by now. Our most “transparent “ supreme leader is all too transparent - the people see right through him by now, and they’re nauseated by any further exposure.

The spin of the media is no longer trusted either. They have put gobs of expensive, glittering lip stick on a hideous and dangerous pig. Many people missed the ruse and kissed that pig the first time around - but they won’t make that mistake a second time.

The man has long been finished, except as a very dangerous radical who still retains enough power to further our nation substantially down the road to ruin. But he won’t do it with the people’s blessing ever again.

If he really was brilliant, or even just a tad intelligent, or if he really gave the first hint of a rat’s behind about this country, he would at least have the decency to resign with dignity. But the narcissism that keeps him so clueless keeps him from coming anywhere near considering that option. Sad.

A deeply flawed man, and a resounding wake-up call for what’s left of our constitutional republic.

Obama, this one symbol will present a clear picture of how everything you're pursuing fits together:

The article states: “...to regain his footing Obama is putting himself on the side of the people.”

Note he is “putting himself”...same ol’ same ol’. Just more verbage as his actions show he opposes the people. That is not going to change as the following statement attests to:

“What the speech won’t do is reshape Obama’s agenda, he will defend it anew”.

Will we see tears in his eyes?
