SOTU Sophistry

While average Americans are struggling to pay their bills and provide for their families, President Barack Hussein Obama will deliver his annual State of the Union Address before a Joint Session of Congress tonight.

Per an AP story provided to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Obama is supposed to call for targeted spending in order to jumpstart his failed economic policies. At the same time, the president will also propose budget cuts.


The address begins at 7:00 p.m. Central.

While tens of millions of Americans watch, Obama will bring his laser-like focus (since his party no longer controls the House of Representatives) to America’s job crisis. Tonight’s speech will concentrate on America’s economic mess, barely emphasizing Afghanistan and Iraq, terrorism and foreign affairs.

Obama will offer proposals on improving America’s educational system and infrastructure.  He will also encourage innovation (government-funded?) in order to improve America’s failing economy.  (Didn’t he propose all this stuff last year?)   At the same time he proposing massive spending, he will also propose budget cuts in order to reduce the government’s debt, which, thanks to the effects of his administration and a Democratically-controlled Congress, now exceeds $14 trillion.

The rallying cry from the Administration tonight will be “Win the Future!”

The president and his administration are trying to put forth proposals that will entice Moderate Republicans to reach across the aisle. Obama’s aides have announced that they hope that the SOTU Address will appeal to both workers and business executives and bind the political parties.

Funny, how the Midterm Elections on November 2nd, 2010 inspired the Administration and the Democrats to change their political rhetoric, isn’t it? It’s easier to call for an end to harsh rhetoric when you no longer have the political power to push though Congress whatever radical change that you want to.

The political parties are still miles apart in their philosophies.( Thank goodness.)  The State of the Union Address will be delivered just hours after the House votes on setting spending for the rest of the year at 2008 pre-recession levels. This mostly symbolic resolution puts House Republicans on the record as being in favor of a $100 billion budget cut from Obama’s budget for the current year as the party promised in last year’s campaign.

Sitting with Michelle (ma belle) Obama tonight will be several of the people involved with the tragic mass murder in Tucson, Arizona. Those attending include Daniel Hernandez, the intern who rushed to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ side and put pressure on her wounds until medical personnel arrived, and the family of 9-year-old victim Christina Taylor Green. Rep. Gabby Gifford’s — trauma surgeons Peter Rhee and Randall Friese, neurosurgeon Michael Lemole, and nurse Tracy Culbert will attend as well. Giffords’ husband, Mark Kelly, will not attend, choosing instead to stay close to his wife in Houston.

May God bless them and all the victims of the actions of the psychopath, Jared Lee Loughner.

Obama is expected to use the tragedy to call for civility, an apparent code word used to squelch political dissent, since the Democratic Party can no longer limit debate by the dictate of their former majority.

Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin will be giving the Republican response tonight. He is usually the party spokesman on budgetary issues because of his knowledge and focus on spending cuts. He is the chairman of the Budget Committee and severs as the point man for the GOP drive to reduce the national debt by slashing government spending.

Rep. Michelle Bachmann is scheduled to reply to the address also, representing the Tea Party Express. This will be available on the Internet, only.

Mr. President, sir, may I offer a humble suggestion? The majority of Americans don’t want Government interference in our lives. We simply want you to get out of the way and let us work. Don’t punish our American entrepreneurs. Get our of their way. Quit raising taxes on businesses. Drop the corporate tax rate to 10 % and you’ll have every corporation in the world begging to come to America to do business, not to mention freeing up our own American corporations to start creating jobs again and, possibly, quit outsourcing jobs to the Bay of Bengal.

It seems pretty simple to me. But, then again, I believe in America.

    The very sound of his voice makes my husband & I ill.
    A new slogan? How hilarious.
    He is a puppet, probably backed by communists & liberals who do not yet know they are communists.
    My avid reading on the history of communism, especially in the US, is quite instructive.
    I see numerous paralells. It is shocking.
    I hope his raping & pillaging of America results in a more vigilant voter populace.
    What else good can come from this travesty?

    I was thinking about getting last year’s (and maybe the 2009 speech) and pulling out the points that the repeats year after year, but I don’t think I could put up with watching him that much. I’m going to need booze to get through tonight’s speech.

    Well said. You know, I believe in America, too, at least in her founding principles, but it is getting harder and harder to believe in the people. After all, Obama didn’t appear out of thin air in the White House. He was put there by the American people and according to polls half of them still approve. We have lost our way. I only hope we aren’t so far off the right path that we can’t find our way back, for my children’s sake. The 2010 election gives me some hope.

    I’ll probably only watch the rebuttal. I think I have a good enough picture of the state of the Union without the liar in chief giving me his spin on it. I’d rather read the transcript. I’ve heard people say Sarah Palin’s voice bugs them, but Obama’s monotone droning and umms and aahs drive me insane. It would take too much booze and I have to get up early in the morning.
