The Steak Through the Heart of the Union Address

Updated on January 26, 2011

As was the case with the Arizona pep rally, if you watched this Regurgitation of Platitudes then you’re a better man than I Gunga Den. As for me and Mrs. Patriot, instead of suffering through this excruciating Pontificating, we were able to find an exciting show on the home and garden TV where we watched grass grow!

As for the speech; the excerpts which I have heard are of course disturbing but after all, it was given by a very disturbed individual; one who harbors a deep visceral hatred for this country. And as for the Kumbaya back slapping that took place on the House floor, personally it was more than I could stomach. Watching the Republicans seated amongst the enemy made me wonder; WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY THINKING? After being treated as third class citizens by these same chameleons you are now sitting with; did you ever wonder why they proposed this charade? Well my friends it was to dilute your strength in front of the American Public, the same public that sent you there to stop this nonsense you are now participating in; etui Brute, pardon me while I insert this knife between your shoulder blades !

In Shakespearean style Obama delivered a Soliloquy unrivaled in modern day theater. Why a soliloquy you ask; he gave his version of Bi-partisanship; freeze spending for the Republicans while keeping the higher unprecedented levels for his fellow Commicrats! He wasn’t counting on his audience being astute enough to see through the charade! Yes while listening to this particular dose of his Snake Oil, if you close your eyes you could have envisioned Hamlet’s “to be or not to be” soliloquy or Macbeth’s “tomorrow and tomorrow” or even Juliet asking Romeo where he was!

And what were the four cornerstones of this latest Steak in the Heart of the Union address; reinvestment (AKA Borrow more in order to spend more) for Roads, Research, Transportation and Education! Roads in order to keep public service workers working (payback for SEIU) Research; keep idealistic Professors working (payback for the Elitist Professorial Group that repeatedly delivers the young student votes for the Democrats), Transportation; payback to his Environmentalist Waccos (get people out of cars and onto trains- but wait why then do we need the Roads); and finally the Holy Grail for Democrats, Education (Pour more money down that rat hole known as Public Education to satisfy the NEA)! All I can say is the Trial Lawyers must be feeling left out right now; they appeared to get nothing!

He went on to address Earmarks; let’s see…….the name game Earmarks….Earmarks Earmarks Bo Beer Marks Banna Fanna Fo Fearmarks Fee Fi Mom Meeremarks…… Earmarks……..Let’s do Pretend… Pretend Pretend Bo Betend Banna Fanna Fo Feetend Fee Fi Mo Metend……Pretend…. Lets do Ban…. Ban Ban Bo Ban Bannna Fanna Fo Fan Fee Fi Mom Man Ban…. Let’s Pretend to Ban Earmarks!

Next he ventured into what I consider to be his most audacious point; his self proclaimed tax cut. The fact that Obama was forced into not raising taxes on everyone is in his mind a Tax Cut; welcome to Obama World; kinda like Wally World but it never closes. The clowns that run it will gladly stick their hands deep into your pockets and pick them any hour of the day any day of the year; there are no holidays in Obama World!

One final point; he failed to get to the nitty gritty of our problem because to do so would have required self reflection and he like all Narcissist he is incapable of self reflection; I have looked at the enemy and it is ME!

      It wasn't the SOTU address he wanted to give He'd imagined he'd be able to go along his merry way destroying America Now he's being told he has to lie low for 2 years and work at getting elected again

      It's still sit down and shut up; he just sugar coated it somewhat but the words are still hidden under the rhetoric!

      I was proud of myself for actually suffering through nearly the entire speech, and I did NOT even vomit once!!! I found myself chuckling about Barry's newfound desire for bipartisanship after the repubs WHOOPED HIS ASS in the election. What a difference a year makes! Last year, it was repubs, sit down, shut up, and let us destroy the nation. This year, it is we wanna work WITh you, I'd LIKE to hear your ideas.... Another speech full of lies and half-truths from the man who knows not how to lead, but would LOVE to be king!

      Patriot, I love your take on the speech as it is the same as mine. He is totally out of touch with reality.

      Thanks Pop

      But I just can't bear to listen to him; I usually mute him when he's on the news but I couldn't see sitting there for over an hour watching his smug nose in the air with the sound muted!

      Bravo, Patriot. I agree, the speech was unbearable to listen to, but I felt I had to. It just confirmed what I already knew..Obama is an empty suit.
