State Of The Union..Lame Gibberish, Lies And Posturing
I owe you an apology.
As I always say, I watch these things so you don't have to. And I analyze them for you.
This time, I have no plans to go into any depth on this president's remarks last night. Aside from my disinclination to get horse manure all over my hands, there simply isn't much to 'analyze.' Unless you're a psychiatrist.
And after all, what could I possibly tell you? About a president who talks about 'civility in politics' one moment while taunting Republicans like a ten-year-old on the playground the next? About a president who yaks it up about 'working together' and then tells congress he'll veto anything they send him unless it's exactly what he wants, unless they're his bitch?
What can I say about a president who still lies and claims to be a champion of America's middle class in one part of his 'speech' and then reveals later on exactly how bad he's going to screw them by raising taxes..again? Whose programs have sent prices for food and energy soaring? Who spent more taxpayer dollars for one family dinner during his lavish vacation in Hawaii on our dime than the entire amount of the IRS child tax credit?
Who brags about ObamaCare when it has lead to soaring premiums, increased wait time to see a doctor, reduced coverage and part time jobs replacing full time ones? A president whom actually claims, with a straight face that he's on top of national security who won't secure our borders and invites illegal, unvetted migrants in as 'guests'? A president who has alienated all of our major allies, refuses bluntly to do anything about Iran gaining nuclear weapons and promises to veto any attempt by congress to do so ? The guy who has gotten us involved in two illegal wars, illegally armed Islamic State and created a terrorist oasis in Libya?
There's more, but what can you really say?
What we have here is not so much an actual president but a pathological liar who has told the same lies so often he literally believes them to be true.And any unwelcome reality that intrudes on his fantasy world is simply ignored...it doesn't exist.
Even the fact that his own party has suffered because of him means nothing. This president now holds the record - by a long way - for losing congressional seats for his own party during his time in office.
Again, that reality simply doesn't exist for him.
We are likely stuck with him for another two years, and I guarantee you that they won't be pleasant ones.
