Obama to give "modest" SOTU address...

:angry:This backsliding two-faced tyrant is the epitome of an enemy not only of America, but of freedoms where ever they may be enjoyed. This article downplays the mentality of this devil and makes him appear like the poor kid that wasn't picked for the football game. Just sick...

I highlighted the important part...

"After five years in office, Mr. Obama has, by his own account, come to feel acutely the limits on his power and the shrinking horizons before him — all of which make his nationally televised speech to Congress on Tuesday a critical opportunity to drive an agenda that may yet shape his legacy."

He's gone in to office from day one wishing, hoping, and maneuvering to be as singularly powerful as he can be. In the article (link below) his SOTU address is supposedly going to include direct admission that he will do what he can to circumnavigate congress to fulfill some of his 2nd term ambitions--and has the nerve to call them MODEST! :angry:

If you aren't already...write your representatives and congressmen!

    Unless it's in terms of responsibility, in which case those two words won't be used at all.

    I'd rather clean out a 200' x 200' feedlot with a shovel than listen to him give his SOTU propaganda speech. Why? Because the 'stuff' I'd be shoveling has worth; his 'stuff' he'll be shoveling ain't worth nothin'.

    I wonder if anyone will yell out during his speech.

    During the address to Congress after he was elected in '08, being called a liar in open Congress was scolded--even on this forum. Now..."liar" is a kind sentiment. No holds barred. He may be the CIC, but senators represent the peoples' interest and they should stand and yell their constituents beliefs.

    Why scold him? He was spot on.
    Captain clueless proved him to be correct.

    Agreed, but that was back in '08 before we knew the full breath of his evil. Now that call-out in open Congress or the HOR would be very appropriate!

    Modest is right. At best, his S.O.T.U. addresses are eighth grade level at best: http://dailycaller.com/2012/01/30/how-obamas-speeches-compare-to-our-founders/

    Andy Jacksons's speeches, by contrast would be a modern equivalent of "19th grade" or 19 years of education. Self Educated backwoods dueling Scotch Irish > Columbia/Harvard educated community organizer.

    I'll bet that '**** says, "My top priority", a few times, too. His list of 'top priority' measures would fill a good sized notebook, and he hasn't accomplished a single one of them. Gives them lip service, and nothing more. Good thing the sheeple are as dumb as brickbats or they'd have turned on him a long time ago.

    This.

    I can vividly remember a new forum member being scolded for posting a pic comparing Obama w/ Hitler just minutes after this clown got elected. Many "senior" forum members were caught up with that warm fuzzy feeling of conceding defeat like a whooped pup lying on its back watering itself and the whining cry baby sentimental ...'oh, this is the way democracy works' ...or, "gee..., I might not agree with him but I respect the vote and blah blah blah". Perhaps after losing a few freedoms the blind will finally wake up though I seriously doubt it.

    My fellow Americans the state of the union is good because we still have a little credit left and that means I can give you more stuff.

    This is Reason.com's SOTU drinking game:


    Take a drink any time President Obama…

    Mentions inequality. Take another if, in the same sentence, he refers to “the wealthiest Americans.” Chug the rest of the bottle if he mentions “the 1 percent.”
    Describes government spending as an investment.
    Talks about economic mobility without noting that mobility has not changed in fifty years.
    Forgets to apologize for lying when he said that people who liked their doctors and their health plans could keep them under Obamacare.
    Says the words “nation building at home.”
    Falsely insists that there’s no evidence of any abuses of power at the National Security Agency.
    Grudgingly admits that the surveillance state may have gone too far—but calls for weak reforms that won’t rein in its power.
    Credits Obamacare for its Medicaid enrollment, despite the fact that we have no idea how many Medicaid enrollees since October are for people who are newly eligible under the law.
    Mentions Syria, which Obama wanted to bomb, and then (thank goodness!) didn’t.
    Says anything interesting about foreign policy.
    Falsely presents something as a false choice.
    Starts any sentence with the words, “Let me be clear.” Double shot if it’s an ad-lib not in the prepared text.

    Scratch what I was gonna say here. I don't wish any bad things on anyone. And I hope he survives his presidency and he and his bride go off in the sunset and have a nice life, just no longer in the governance of my once great coutry. No doubt he, as all presidents has maybe done SOME good, but I don't think what good he's done near balances out the bad things he's tried to do, namely make us into a purely socialistic country. But that's not all is fault. I blame clueless American voters for putting people like him in power in the first place. And I would tell all those people to go get some education, but the leftists have so screwed up our educational system there's no more anywhere a place to get it.

    I watched the whole speech. About all I can say about it is that he ate TWO bowls of STUPID for breakfast and had two more as a mid afternoon snack. He did a good job of contradicting himself a few times. And he said global warming, cooling, climate change is real, and he's gonna do something about it if Congress doesn't act. I'm looking for the new head of the EPA to go bat scat crazy with new regulations.
