SOTU and other fiction

Are you planning to watch Obama stand before Congress and insult the nation tonight? I’m not. I’ve also sent emails to my US Congresscritters and asking why they bother. Senator Bullmoose…Blunt will be speaking as the opposition which is a joke since he is known to vote as a Demlite whenever the chips are down.

So, why bother? Obama will brag that he’ll ignore Congress and write any edict on any issue at any time. Harry Reid will block any opposition, little that there will be with McConnell as the Minority Leader.

Even some of the Washington media are asking the same question.

State of the Union: Few will tune in as Obama becomes lame duck

Obama has been losing his TV audience — literally.

With the State of the Union proving ever less entrancing for viewers, the White House is desperate to turn the speech into a multiday event in an effort to bolster interest in Mr. Obama’s policies, even if people don’t tune in to hear his words.

The recent tradition is for presidents to deliver their State of the Union address, travel to several key cities, then head to the legislative trenches to fight for their key policies.

Mr. Obama has travel planned for Wednesday and Thursday with stops in Prince George’s County, Md., Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, and Nashville, Tenn. But he also has a lot more planned.

In an email to supporters, the White House urged Americans to “stick around after the speech” and go online to see White House aides expand on the key parts of the president’s address. The email also invited supporters to tweet their favorite moments and encouraged them to come back later in the week for more question-and-answer sessions, including Friday’s video exchange with the president.

“No matter how you watch, we have a version that fits your experience,” the White House said in its email.

That last paragraph is telling…”we have a version to fit all audiences.” If you don’t like one version, we’ll make another. Yeah, that really makes me believe in your liberal fantasy.

Liars, all liars.

Obama, with the willing help of Paul Ryan and a host of spineless ‘Pub congressmen, cut benefits to our military and military veterans. Today he announced he will arbitrarily raise the minimum wage for Federal employees and Federal Contractors.
