Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address was a vivid example of his failed presidency. Though he identified everything that was going wrong in the nation, he demonstrated the same unprofessional, punitive, and hypocritical tendencies that have defined Obama over the last year.  Instead of being a means of expressing his understanding of the people’s expectations, his address was an exercise in self-exoneration and self-absorbtion.

The cornerstone of the administration is its massive spending and overbearing regulation.  This is the  source of much of the people’s anger toward Obama.  He answered this with:

 “Starting in 2011, we are prepared to freeze government spending for three years. Spending related to our national security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will not be affected. But all other discretionary government programs will. Like any cash-strapped family, we will work within a budget to invest in what we need and sacrifice what we don’t.”

Without these entitlements and national defense including, only one percent of government spending would be covered.  This  insignificant proposal to allows it to be heard that he is willing to “freeze” spending.  And it is the kind of  PR stunt that has become par for the course with Team Obama! 

Well, at least he created a job for David Plouffe.  Looks like he has been hard at work.

Obama’s cosmetic attempt to make himself out to be fiscally responsible demonstrated his preoccupation with appearances, and his nack for insulting the people’s intelligence.

When he says “I know there are those of you who disagree with the overhelming scientific evidence” on global warming, he was actually laughed at!  This “president” no longer commands the basic reprect that comes with the office.  That is because he has not conducted himself in manner that commands respect.  We do not owe it to him.

Of course there was a lot of his trademark “blame Bush” nonsense.  Obama once again gave himself credit for “averting The Second Great Depression”, and that “the unemployment would be doubled”, if he had not enacted the Recovery Act and TARP.  So the unemployment rate would have been over 20%?  He comes to this based on what?  He never said anything about this 20% figure, when he took office the figure was at 7.8%, and the spending was supposed to keep it from going above 8%.

And for him to claim that this is true, he would have to prove that he “created or saved” over four million jobs, not the fabricated 2 million he is using now. Even when you assume he is telling the truth, the numbers do not add up.  Last year the administration originally credited itself with saving or creating 650,000 jobs.  But The Associated Press reports “The number was based on self-reporting by recipients and some of the calculations were shown to be in error.”

 Obama refered to “a deficit of trust”. This bogus   “jobs created or saved” notion is a big part of that.  Throughout the address he spoke of  ending practices that Obama has engaged in all year-long.   We claimed that he was not interested in “re-litigating the past”, but he also lamented that “before I walked in the door” he was handed  trillions of dollars of debt from the previous administration. 

Just to fill in Mr. Hope and Change, every president inherits the problems of the previous administration.  You were elected to fix these problems, not create more of them.

Obama tried to rise above his own political failures with “What frustrates the American people is a Washington where everyday is election day.  We can’t be in perpetual campaign mode.”  Yet it is Obama himself who has been in perpetual campaign mode.  During this first year he has given 411 speeches, 158 interviews, and 23 town halls.  He gave 23 speeches on health care alone.  He stumped for Corzine, Deeds, and Coakley, praised them supporting his agenda, watched them all lose, and then said that it had nothing to do with him or his agenda. 

Deficit of trust.

He consistently spoke of being “bi-partisan”, then he pointed out that “we” meaning the Democrats, have the largest majority in a generation.  When a president refers to the party he belongs to as using it’s superior numbers to pass his agenda, that is being partisan.

Just words. Yes Barry, they are just words!

Finally, in one of the most repulsive displays of  in presidential history, Obama directly attacked the United States Supreme court.  He charged  “with all deference to separation of powers, last week’ saw a reversal of  a century old law that will open the flood gates for special interests”.  The Supreme Court Justices sat quietly as disrespectful members of Congress jumped up to applaud this insult. 

The Justices never stand up for that phony display of approval. 

They were acting like the audience at a Jerry Springer taping.  We might as well throw in a couple of “baby-mamas” fist fighting over their unemployed lover.  Maybe he can testify on how well the Recovery Act is working.

Obama said that the ruling would allow foreign companies to control  American elections.  Justice Alito shook his head and quietly mouthed “not true”, the sequel to Joe Wilson’s “You Lie”. Yet there are  federal statutes that prohibit foriegn contributions.

Bert, a frequent caller to 97.1 Talk Radio, sums it up with “It is disgusting to see this man on TV”. 

Mr. Obama this is how the people really feel about you.

He even asked the “pundits” to lay of f of him.  Barry it is their job to call you to tasks and expose your deceptions. 

Maybe you should spend less time worrying about Rush and Glenn Beck, less time trying to streamline your message, and spend more time figuring out how you are going to salvage this failed presidency.

Barack Obama, the Greyfalcon sees you as an embarrassment.

    There hasn’t been a single thing Obama has done that would indicate to me that he wants to fix the economy. What I have been concerned about from day 1, he wants to overload the system, so as to collapse the economy. That would lead to the redistributive change he wants, or so he thinks. When Obama talks about raising the taxes on “only” the “wealthy,” that make $250k per year, that would certainly be a big hit on small business, as these are the people that are investing in their business, and hiring people. I shouldn’t think it would take someone with a doctorate in economics to figure that out. On the other hand, I haven’t seen anyone in this man’s sphere of influence that I would let balance my check book.
