No, I didn't watch Barack Hussein Obama's last SOTU last night. I reached the gag factor on Obama about the middle of 2009. However, I did watch after the speech...to see what the media pundits would have to say about "dear leader". And, in one of those 30 second sound bites, I saw Obummer leaning casually on the podium of "the people's house", sounding arrogant and self satisfied...and just a bit disgusted that so many can't recognize his "greatness". And in that moment I had a visceral reaction, a punch in the gut moment that reminded me of a previous pic of Obummer, feet up on a historic desk in the oval office...and nearly retched at how this "Muslim Socialist" has disrespected the office of the Presidency.
And I didn't need to watch...because we have all heard Obama's kitsch before...for seven long years. We know the actions never reach the meteoric rise of his rhetoric, we know, in every speech there will be a period of whining, a smattering of blaming Bush and the Republicans, a bit of demonizing those who don't agree with him, followed by a long monologue about his supreme achievements that so few Americans really appreciate.
I'll be interested to see the TV ratings for that speech. I suspect they will be paltry...we've all heard his standard spiel..and even his loyal liberal zombie following have heard it all before...so no real need nor desire to hear it all again.
Now I will watch on January 20th, 2017. I want to see the moving vans pulling up to the south lawn and hauling that trash out of the White House.
The State of the Union is fraught with peril, with 47% of the people now acclimated to expecting to receive a green check, with millions more on food stamps, our university students as ignorant as neanderthals, with nothing to show for it but $3 trillion dollars in student loan debt. Our nation is as racially divided as we've ever been, our cities are ravaged by thugs and illegal aliens, wealth envy is the "cause celebre" and whining and victimhood is the latest social trend. Our economy is such that 94 million Americans have left the work force entirely (and boarded the government gravy train), our work force is predominated by folks working two jobs to survive (cause 30 hour work weeks allow employers to skirt Obama care coverage mandates that would bankrupt them), and the national debt is $20 trillion and counting as our government masters are living off the "credit card" of our children and grandchildren.
And all our economic woes won't matter a bit because our world is now so unsafe that we now face the real threat of biological or nuclear armageddon by Muslim extremists who don't mind dying...those 96 virgins waiting for them in Muslim heaven. And if you expected our military to save us, abandon that idea; our military strength is one third of what it was just three decades ago, severely underfunded, and their Commander in Chief is only concerned with rainbow flags, designing uniforms for transgenders and setting a small army of architects to work on three bathroom facilities; "his" "hers" and "other".
We all know the State of the Union...and we know it's not the rainbows and unicorns Obummer says it is.
Sad. Damned Sad.
