The Backpedal Medal aka Flip Flop until he drops! 1 hour and 10 minutes of swing. 80 Applause sessions definitely… undeserved. The country is moving in reverse, not in a good way, due to poor leadership, who is still ignoring learning on the job and desires no retention of skills.
Let’s keep the review short and sweet. He lied, he whined, he blamed, he called out the Supreme Court, declared a deadline of August for troops to be completely out of Afghanistan (by the way this will cause a huge addition to our unemployment!), stated a freeze on spending to begin late 2011 (wow priority is not here!), announced a website for all pork/earmarks to be parked and viewed by the citizenry before a bill is passed, the crackpot several times called many other kettles black. He was pained as he delivered his speech. He didn’t even believe what he was saying. His deficit figure mentioned and the real deficit/debt are not even in the same ballpark. He desires to keep the spending pace up with a “Jobs” bill from the slush fund of Stimulus Money?
He had an entire year with a Democratic Majority in the House, in the Senate and Oval Office (with a rag tag band of tax dodgers and other issues) and there were no positive accomplishments. Don’t you dare attack the Republicans because your Liberal agenda being pushed via Pelosi/Reid is abhorrent to the American People, or chastise the fast fleeing Democrats. Everyone knows what’s been going on and if they can’t support the administration, they are making their stand or retreat as needed. He talked about “Washington Campaigning” and he’s the worst offender.
He appears to want to continue beating the dead horse of health care, he appears weak on terrorists and no mention of Gitmo. And it seems the issue he wants to address most is that Gays and Lesbians should be mainstreamed without “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” edict to be lifted in the military. Was there nothing else more critical to be decisive on with this blathering speech?
By the way, I didn’t miss that little bow to Mrs. Pelosi, what’s up with that? Or that comment about “Muslims” and educating? It’s incredible that you have no credibility even within your own party or other branches of government (the cameras caught some very interesting mouthings!)
