Obama adresses Congress – my take.

Blah blah blah.

Dude, he promised to cure cancer.  He also declared that no one would be allowed to drop out of high school anymore.  He claims to support the troops, and swears that he will not allow Terrorists in foriegn countries to plot against us, that we will be strong!  Then turns around and proclaims that he has closed gitmo.  Sorry, but, closing Gitmo does not make America strong.   He announced that he would repeal the Bush tax cuts on the top 2% of Americans, but give a tax break to the bottom 95% of Americans.  The problem with those numbers it that the top 5% of American earners pay over 50% of the tax burden already! (source)  There was more, but really, all I ever hear when he speaks is Charlie Brown’s Teacher, “Wah wah wah, wah wah wah wah.”

Best tweet of the night goes to Dana Loesch aka Mamalogues:

Who knew there were so many fancy ways to say “All your monies are belong to us?”

Love it.

Bobby Jindal’s response was awesome.  I love this quote,

Some in Washington say that government. will rescue us from economic storms raging all around us. Those of us who lived through Hurricane Katrina, we have our doubts.

Awesome! WTG Bobby!   I say Palin/Jindal 2012!

Meanwhile, everytime Obama makes another speech, I can’t help but think of the quote from Revenge of the Sith:

“So this is how liberty dies, to thunderous applause.” Padme Amidala



Just who’s running this show anyway?

Today, Obama signed several executive orders. The first being the order to close Gitmo.  Thing is, he did not know what he was signing! He had to stop and ask his lawyer, not once, but twice, for clarification about what he was signing.  See for your self, at the 0:37 mark, and again at the the 5:11 mark.

Can you imagine, for just one second, what would have happened if Bush had, in front of the press corps, stopped to ask a lawyer a question about the order he was signing?  It would have been headline news! “Bush is clueless! This proves it!”  So, what have you heard about this incident in the media tonight?  Nada. Zip.  Zilch.
