SOTU speech falls flat


The first hour of Pres Obama’s first State of The Union Address was the most divisive, partisan, and bitter SOTU that I have ever heard, in my entire adult lifetime.

And, I’m no spring chicken.

The last half hour wasn’t any better.

He didn’t pivot to the center, as some expected, but rather gave a head fake toward the center, then restated his radical progressive nightmare vision for America, persuading no one not already on board with him. Amidst the phony calls for bi-partisanship, the one truth that was spoken tonight was the fact that the Democrats control historically large majorities in both houses, and they’re not about to quit trying to impose their will against the majority of citizens. For Obama and the dems, bipartisanship is defined as picking up one Republican vote in the Senate (by any means necessary) in order to resume their program of “fundamental change.”

I do wonder if the Republic will survive this charlatan. My fear is a complete collapse of the economy.

If I’m right, there will be much to do to prepare for life in this post-American, Obama world.

It won’t be pleasant.
Take care of your families.
Take care of yourself.
Pray.

Update: Here’s an interesting video from the jellytoast blog. Two years ago, Obama gave the dem response to Pres Bush’s final SOTU. This is the first time I’e seen it, because at the time, I had no interest in seeing it.

It is remarkable in that it is basically the same speech he gave tonight, with one notable exception: Obama claimed that the surge failed. If we had followed Obama’s plan to immediately begin withdrawing from Iraq two years ago, then he would not have been able to stand up tonight and shamelessly claim credit for ending the war in Iraq. Iraq would be a complete basket case. Obama was wrong then, and he hasn’t changed a bit.

Update 2: Nile Gardiner (Telegraph) grades the speech an F on international leadership.

Democrat Underground, however, thinks Obama is God himself. And if you can’t see that, well, you’re just blind.

  1. Glenn Beck pegged this. Obama is what we all thought he was before the election.

    God help us all, the shit is about to hit the fan.

  2. Øbummer ain’t shit.
    We will fight him in the air, we will fight him on the beaches, we will never surrender.

  3. [...] denizens of the Demonic Underground, (safe  link) are still high on the hopium: You just have to say thank God this man is the president After 8 years [...]

  4. Up Yours, Президент Оба́ма!

  5. Keep your powder dry and your knife sharp. And be prepared to use both, with no quarter.

  6. Wow. Seriously…

    Calm down, people. This is not the end of America. Do you honestly think that we are on the brink of destruction? After all the shit that this country has been through and survived? A dozen plus wars, many of them fought on our own soil. Countless energy crises. Poverty and famine caused by arguably the greatest financial collapse in the world outside of post WWII Germany.

    I’m calling STFU right now. If you’re right, then you can rub it in my face. Of course, there won’t be an Internet at that point. But I feel pretty confident that America is stronger than one progressive Presidential term.

    • Dozen plus wars….I count 10…..with the last two not so much war as preventative maintenance.
      “Countless energy crises”….I count three…none real.

      I’m calling bullshit.

  7. I have no interest in rubbing your nose in anything. In fact, I hope I am wrong.

    I will tell you this:
    If you don’t have a plan for yourself, you’ll be part of someone else’s.

  8. obama told that he is against wars and he will try to do all he can in oder to keep peace in the wrold. but during the negotiations with israel and palestinian sides he showed nothing but lack of understanding of the situation on middle east.
