Words and Anecdotes

BO used every word in Webster’s and said nothing at all. His anecdotes were lifeless and his tone less then convincing. He sounded bored with it all.  Obama’s Mismatched, Misfit State of the Union Is In the Books

President Barack Obama spent more than an hour sweeping between a laundry list of proposals, anecdotes to hide his failures, and what can only be called lies about the state of the union. He took credit for an energy boom that he not only had nothing to do with, but that he has actively tried to stop. He touted Middle East policies that will end with an Iranian nuclear weapon and radical Islamists in control of at least one other state in the region, if not several. Obama never mentioned Pastor Saeed Abedini, the American who is imprisoned in Iran. He pushed for minimum wage hikes that won’t create jobs and may price some jobs off into robotic replacements, and which would only impact about 4% of the American work force. Meanwhile, the labor participation rate in Obama’s economy is still at a historic low. His record on jobs is awful.

D-words may have cheered due to the fact they won’t have to vote on much of anything when our Emperor-in-Chief decides through EO and the ABC government entities what laws to enact and legislate in place of Congress. Some of those up for re-election, even though they applauded him loudly, made sure to run to the nearest mic to proclaim they have a problem with BO and his threats.  Amazing How Quickly Democrats Ran From Obama
“What was telling after is how quickly vulnerable Senate Democrats were rushing to criticize the president,” King said. “You had Mark Begich of Alaska. You had Mark Udall of Colorado. You had a senator not on the ballot but a race in his state, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, saying the president was overstepping on executive action.”
Running scared in 2014, gotta love it…..
UPDATE….While BO talks of “income inequality” MO shows up in haute couture for the SOTU….
Micehlle Obama
This designer’s shoes start at $2,000 a pair….. see how that works?

  1. And of course, Obamacare – all by itself – is an inequality Godzilla that has robbed working families of their insurance, their doctors, their wages and their jobs. Many Americans are now seeing why some of us fought so hard to stop this train-wreck over the last four years.

    Government-driven inequality is the reason why, as hard-working families across the country struggle to make ends meet, six of the ten wealthiest counties in America are now suburbs of Washington, D.C.

    Throughout the last five years, President Obama has promised an economy for the middle class; but all he’s delivered is an economy for the middle-men.

    And tonight his party cheered as he asked for more of the same, as if the solution to inequality were … well … more inequality.

  2. MO’s “a-what-a” at the SOTU….

    Speaking of ‘clueless,’ reading about what Michelle chose to wear to the SOTU in an article entitled Michelle Obama’s State Of The Union Dress: She Stuns In Alaïa Ensemble, what immediately came to mind was ‘Oh brother, she stunned alright! The nation is a mess, and this woman shows up in haute couture?’
    Then again, on second thought, while her husband pulls off a national stick-up, ‘clueless’ Michelle wearing “an a-what-a” was quite apropos.

  3. A shout out to Chick-Fil-A for their good deeds….living their ‘values’

    Some of the drivers had been stuck in their cars for nearly seven hours without any food or water. So the staff of the Chick-fil-A decided to lend a helping hand.

    “We cooked several hundred sandwiches and stood out on both sides of 280 and handed out the sandwiches to anyone we could get to – as long as we had food to give out.”

    The staffers braved the falling snow and ice and Chick-fil-A refused to take a single penny for their sandwiches.

    The meal was a gift – no strings attached.

  5. Freedom is not ‘comfortable’ and the Constitution is not ‘temporary’…..’we fight’
