Best Friends Forever at the SOTU

Well, President Obama is going to focus “like a laser on jobs” in the State of the Union address – one more time.

But this just about takes the cake for elected officials of the United States of America to engage in playing little kindergarten games such as this.  I am not even going to watch this charade.

For the first time in history, we have a president who is not able to stand up in front of a congress weighed against his party and take it like a man.  The whole thing is designed to make things  easier on him and the democrats because none of them ever thought there would be a republican speaker of the house sitting behind him.

Come on, President Obama.  Come out and ask them not to do this, to cut out the foolishness.  It will make you look like a statesman.

They are choosing partners to sit with.

  • Mary Landrieu and Olympia Snowe are BFF  for the SOTU
  • Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk  are the Land of Lincoln Laddies
  • Chuch Schumer and Tom Coburn are Partisan Pals
  • Southwest Soul-mates are McCain and Udall
  • and the Cutest Couple is Thune and Gillibrand

Lord have mercy.  No wonder our country is in the shape it’s in.  These are pretty much the same people who have been there for years presiding over the decline.  Well, Kirk is new, but the rest……

I hear that Mitch McConnell said he would sit where he always does.  Good for him.  I just hope these other guys at least buy a new pair of panties to wear.

Notice how Ben Nelson has not voted with the democrats on anything since he was labeled with the Cornhusker Kickback?  At least Nebraska got his attention.

But for the most part, it doesn’t matter.  There will always be enough turncoat republicans to vote for anything they want.  They can always count on Collins, Snowe, and Graham, and I guess Dick and Judd stepped in this time to give a rest to some other republican and not make them look so bad.  Collins and Snowe, they just don’t care how they look, and neither does Graham.

They are all playing games with us.  And wasting time.  They take all the time to give nice speeches on why she should not be confirmed, as in the case of Jeff Sessions and Orin Hatch,  knowing all the while she will be confirmed.  Why bother?

They are all thoroughly disgusting.

But who knows.  She may make a fine justice.  Time will tell.  My only worry is that between her and Sotomayor, they install couches instead of benches so they can be psychologists and “feel” their votes and sympathize with the litigants.  Exactly what they are not supposed to do.
