And it couldn’t have happened to a more traitorous man. Or quickly enough.
The only thing worse than having to hear Obama’s voice, literally, EVERY day for the past seven years would be to hear Hillary’s piercing voice every day. That is not, at this point, an impossible future.
Will Obama mention his traitorous Iranian deal? Will he mention the Iranian missiles fired close to our newest aircraft carrier? Will he mention the ten sailors captured by Iran? As Charles Krauthammer said, Obama has already been serially humiliated by Iran.
Obama canceled sanctions for the missile launches. Obama is kind to our enemies and brutal to our allies.
How long will the speech go? How many times will he say “I” instead of we?
And the lies commenced.
Mr Obama said we have emerged better now than before. Yes ladies and gentlemen, he is delusional from the very beginning.
“We have reformed healthcare and reinvigorated our energy sector.”
“How do we lead the world without becoming its policeman?”
“The people who say our economy is in decline are peddling fiction.”
“We should recruit and support more great teachers for our kids.”
So here has what Leftist policies have yielded for teachers in our current “total lack of discipline” classroom environments.
That wasn’t a movie, a TV show or a bad SNL skit. That’s classroom reality.
“Food Stamp recipients didn’t cause the financial crisis; recklessness on Wall Street did.” Wall Street helped; but the givernment demanded that banks loan to people who couldn’t afford houses.
“Look, if anybody still wants to dispute the science around climate change, have at it. You’ll be pretty lonely, because you’ll be debating our military, most of America’s business leaders, the majority of the American people, almost the entire scientific community, and 200 nations around the world who agree it’s a problem and intend to solve it.”
Again, more lies. More embracement of The Religious Left — those who so desperately want to believe in Global Warming. It is a religion that demands faith and, like islam, brooks no dissenters.
“No nation dares to attack us or our allies because they know that’s the path to ruin.”
All of the highest-ranking military professionals in the room appeared as though they had had a steaming dog turd stuffed in their mouths when Obama said that. I watched.
“Surveys show our standing around the world is higher than when I was elected to this office.”
Another massive and total lie.
Even the Demorats in the audience who stood to clap did so with tepid vigor and passive and disinterested faces.
THE BIGGEST LIE OF THE EVENING:
“We don’t need to build them (ISIL) up to show that we’re serious, nor do we need to push away vital allies in this fight by echoing the lie that ISIL is representative of one of the world’s largest religions.”
THE BIGGEST OMISSION OF THE EVENING:
NOT ONE WORD about US debt and the massive deficits, CONTINUED and EXPANDED GOVERNMENT SPENDING that he and Demorats and Leftists demand.
“The future we want – opportunity and security for our families; a rising standard of living and a sustainable, peaceful planet for our kids – all that is within our reach. But it will only happen if we work together. It will only happen if we can have rational, constructive debates.”
And those debates, those discussions, are just what you and the Demorats and your fellow Leftists won’t brook in your cabinet meetings, in the public, on the internet, in books and magazines, on television and, mostly now, in our schools and universities.
“As frustration grows, there will be voices urging us to fall back into tribes, to scapegoat fellow citizens who don’t look like us, or pray like us, or vote like we do, or share the same background.”
How odd that you mention that in your very last state of the union speech, because you have been the greatest Divider In Chief.
Obama simultaneously disarms American citizens and arms Iran with the largest, most powerful and deadliest weapons systems on the planet. Mr Obama disarms our citizens, removes equipment from our police forces — who are our First Responders to terrorist and critical incidents, not any single faction of the federal government, in any form. Not the FBI, not the US Marshals, not FEMA. Not any federal agency. Your local law enforcement only.
He also ensures that our law enforcement agencies are diminished, demagogued, belittled.
Obama was the greatest Divider In Chief. He will be proven as the least effective president in recent history, even worse than that of James Earl Carter.
His power depended precisely upon division, the diminishment of American power, greater regulatory and governmental power and money, with the
Just as with his entire administration and tenure, Obama’s final state of the union speech was entirely disconnected from reality. He continues to be physically and mentally separated from the true reality in America and continues his denial of the way the country and the world operates. His speech was disjointed and riddled with major droppings of his ego, arrogance and dismissal of those who would oppose him or his policies in any fashion. He sets aside reality that is inconvenient to him.
Not one word about American hostages in Iran. Not one word about the Iran sanctions or Monday’s ten hostage sailors. He lectures us about civility but not one reference to the fact that Obama is almost singlehandedly responsible for the chaos in Syria via ISIS, his “J.V. team” and that, by extension, Obama will be responsible for the Islamization and decline of the bulk of Europe.
Obama chose to ignore the area where a president can have the most ready influence: foreign policy. He chose to dictate the area foundationally covered by and under the aegis of Congress: domestic policy.
The speech, like Mr Obama, was sophomoric, belittling and pedantic. And not based in any way upon reality.
“This was less about a state of the union than it was a state of denial.”
