…..One big reason the Democrats performed so dismally last November was that many Americans didn’t think that Obama and his congressional allies were paying enough attention to the issue (jobs/the economy) as they got distracted by health care, the Gulf oil spill and a review of Afghanistan war strategy. So when the president takes the podium, his overriding goal will be to convince average Americans — finally — that he gets it.
No. He does not get it.
We have pre-SOTU for days, we will have post-SOTU for days, but the actual SOTU is not going to be worth a thin dime. From what I am hearing, it sounds like the same thing he said at the last State of the Union. And he said the same thing six months ago. So what really is the state of the union? The state of the is not good.
We have the republicans and the democrats sitting together. Even Eric Cantor is sitting with Nancy Pelosi. While the democrats and their mouth the media smear the republicans and smear Paul Ryan, just about the smartest person in Washington, and saying the republicans want people to DIE.
I’d like to hear a debate between Obama and Ryan. Ryan would tear him up. You can tell by the intensity of the Alinski assaults on Paul Ryan that the left knows he is a force to be reckoned with.
And it doesn’t matter one bit what is in the speech. It will be just a bunch of words from a person who can’t be believed.
Gas: $3.11 per gallon this morning. Gallon of milk: over $3.00. Home prices in free-fall with millions of homes underwater..
They can have their stupid State of the Union. They all make me want to throw up.
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.
