Truth however uttered is powerful, profound and lasting. Manipulation of the truth is a well developed science/ art of the corrupt and evil. Yes, there is evil in the world. And we are all subjected to it and we seem to be unaware of it all too often.
The very nature of humanity renders us putty in the hands of deceit and evil like the cat that went to Buckingham Palace to see the queen and could only see the mouse under her throne.
I think what was wrong with BHO's speech was it's lack of facts and truth! I just love when the Saturday morning analysts ANALyze how the 'parties' will look, like it was some football play. This is not a beauty contest, no matter how the delivery might be. This is a case of an extreme left-wing community organizer (aka friend of anti-American extremists and criminals) who has taken charge of a run-away administration.
You are too kind. The rest of the speech was a D- and he earns an F for courtesy and fair play to the justices, the opposition, Bush and the PEOPLE. Not that Bush deserves much, but the Chairman Comrade MaoBama needs to start leading (scary thought) and stop blaming everyone and everything for his own miserable lack of understanding of Constitutional Executive duties and basic, free market economics.
Obama's interpretation of governance can be found in Hugo Chavez' playbook, ACORN, SEIU and Organizing for America. By the way, there is an effort underway in our public schools and colleges to recruit our kids through 6 week seminars, into the ranks of community organizers and get out the vote efforts. Required reading, among other radical text books is "Rules for Radicals" by Saul Alinsky. Check it out.
OFA is a new world organ of despotism that adheres to the principles of Nazi Germany's Youth Camps. And it is happening right in front of our eyes!
Do you mind adding two names to Nevada?
Sue Lowden who is running neck-and-neck with Tarkanian in the polls here. Frankly I think she is a better candidate than Tarkanian on substance. In addition, she has $50M of her own money and is matching contributions dollar-for-dollar at the moment. http://www.suelowden.com/
My personal favorite is Sharron Angle who I think is best on the positions, but she trails the other two in the polls and is a long shot. She does beat Reid in current polling, as do the other two primary candidates. http://sharronangle.com/
As expected, his entire speech was a contradiction of what he SAYS he has done and what ACTUALLY were the very results he claims to be against - Fiscal responsibility (while running up trillions in tax payer debts), transparency (while rushing thousand-page pork-laden bills through both houses), job creation (even while unemployment figures climb), cracking down on homeland security (while condemning our own and freeing known terrorists). I also notice how his empty tirade repeatedly stressed the need to work together and stop 'placing blame' but I forgot to keep count of the number of times he did about the last administration and what he 'inherited'. As for me, I can only shake my head in wonder at anyone who could applaud this man for his 'accomplishments'.
Perhaps more interesting is why the media doesn't call him on all of these obvious contradictions.
Earlier we had some fun with liberal speak and I think Laura is creating a dictionary for us. I think this SOTU speech would be considered nuanced -- the MSM will not challenge nuanced speech from The OME -- in liberal speak. Translation -- it was all a bunch of lies.
OVER THE YEARS I HAVE SEEN PRESIDENTS COME AND GO. THIS ONE NEEDS TO GO, FAR, FAR AWAY!!! HIS ":DIALOG" IS GETTING TIRING. I HAVE HAD A LOT OF EXPERIENCE WITH BS'RS. IN MOST CASES I CAN PICK THEM OUT. I PICKED THIS ONE OUT IN 2008, AND HE HASN'T CHANGED. HE ACTUALLY BELIEVES THE CRAP HE IS SHOVELING OUT TO US. HE SHOULD HEED THE ADVICE I WAS GIVEN MANY YEARS AGO: SAY IT, DO IT, PREACH IT, SHOUT IT, BUT NEVER BELIEVE YOUR OWN BS. HE AND HIS FOLLOWERS THINK THEY ARE ABLE TO WALK ON WATER. OK, LETS TAKE THEM ALL OUT 20 MILES IN THE ATLANTIC, SHOVE THEM OFF AND TELL THEM TO WALK HOME. EVEN THE SHARKS WOULD GET SICK!!!!!
Amen. At what point does this farce become like Charlie Brown trying to kick a football that Lucy is holding?
I like your idea -- hold a Town Hall meeting and invite the president to come talk to the people.
