Sorry State of the Union


I’m not gonna watch it. It’ll just be a campaign speech and another pathetic attempt to blame the Republicans for everything that’s wrong with this country. Besides, Obama is barely tolerable when I’m drunk, and I’ll be sober tonight.

If I can only get drunk once a week I’m not wasting it on Obama.

    accidentally turned on the tv… haven’t yet changed the channel…

    he makes me dizzy and kind of sick to my stomach – sounds like Bush talking (almost exactly)

    Driving back from dinner, he was on the radio. He made some joke about spilled milk that fell flat.

    So who was the “boring white guy” who gave the rebuttle ? I missed the intro but couldn’t stand to listen to him either 😦

    • 1539days says:

      Tim Pawlenty, the other guy the establishment wanted to run for the GOP nomination.

    • djmm says:

      Mitch Daniels. Paul Begala said his speech was like a glass of warm milk with a fly in it: depressing and boring, and he was right.

      At least the Tea Party elements of the GOP usually appear to have a body temperature above 65 degrees F.

      • myiq2xu says:

        Mitch is the one they are talking about as a savior if (when) Romney gets Newtered.

        • DandyTiger says:

          So apparently the Republican establishment is just like Mittens and Mitch and don’t’ have a clue. Kind of funny.

        • Lola-at-Large says:

          Uh, Mitch has a clue. He might not be ready for prime-time, but he has situated Indiana nicely amongst our national economic wreckage. We even have a surplus and may get some of it refunded directly to each citizen this year. That’s why his name is buzzing.

          Plus, we’re about to become a right-to-work state.

        • DeniseVB says:

          lola….ows and the unions are threatening to Occupy the Super Bowl due to the right to work issue. Indy going to become the next Madtown? Hope not 😦

        • votermom says:

          Mitch will not run against Obama – they would eviscerate his wife (who had an affair once upon a time and and left him before they got back together) and he appears to actually care about her.

    I watched the last part of it. Same ole junk–but, Hillary looks so tired. Now, CNN is replaying it — enough. His voice makes me ill.

    • Mary says:

      It was just same ole same ole: lotta feel-good rhetoric, very few specifics. Lotta “spreading the wealth” gook. Snore.

    Watched it and lots of the analysis. Bottom line from me and most analysts I heard: really boring, no vision, just small, incremental changes.

    Interesting comment from Gurgles the slime was the big contrast with Clinton. In Clinton’s end of term SOTU where he was dealing with low numbers, a recently disgraced and tossed out on their ear Dem house (with Newt and new Repub majority), he went to the center with the new vision including end of big government, etc., etc. However it appears Obama instead has doubled down on things for the base, with the tax the rich, lots of programs that the base will like, etc., etc.

    Another interesting thing Ari Fleischer noticed was that Obama said in his speech that he wanted to eliminate all deductions after 1 million, including charitable contributions. Ari thought that was really big news. The left leaning commenters panicked and said that was a mistake because that doesn’t match the “notes” they have (i.e., read, talking points). Funny.

    Then on another channel, and back to the Repub contest, pasty bow tie butt face said what was most interesting was what would happen to the Republican establishment if Newt won Florida. He thought they’d implode and scramble and get someone else in the race, or something bigger. Hannity who was hosting said, what, do you mean the Republican establishment doesn’t like the voters and democracy. Very interesting. I think the establishment would want to do something drastic, but could be stopped if the right leaning press won’t let them get away with it.

    Newt might be upsetting the applecart. And what’s interesting is if they pull a DNC/Pelosi and overturn the will of the voters, I suspect Repubs may just rebel.

    Serious popcorn time.

    • myiq2xu says:

      Newt is a honey badger and he don’t give a shit about party unity. He’ll lead a revolt if they try to steal the nomination from him.

      • Three Wickets says:

        Honey badger don’t give a shit about anything.

      • DandyTiger says:

        I’m counting on it. That would make for a great fucking time. Hey, if the world is going to hell in a hand basket, might as well enjoy the ride on the bomb as it goes down. Yeeeee haaaaaa!!!

    • Three Wickets says:

      Interesting. I’m guessing neither side will do anything major on the economy until the lame duck session after the election when they’ll have to make big decisions on tax cuts, defense and debt ceiling. So until then, I’m keeping an eye on the Fed’s next move on housing, the Scotus decision on Obamacare, the ongoing clusterf*ck in Central Asia, and with some luck the implosion of the Washington political establishment with this election cycle. 🙂

    • 1539days says:

      This is why I call Obama an incompetent socialist. His go to move is to take all the money from the rich (including money that would go to charity) and spend it on his crony projects like Sol(yndra)ar.

      On the other hand, Clinton was trying to govern. When he lost Congress, he changed his tact to get things done. Obama doesn’t want to get things done. He’s trying to run on how much Congress sucks, so he needs to make sure to propose a Democratic laundry list that has no chance of passing. Mind you, he could have passed most of this stuff a year ago when he still had a majority in the House.

    You’re the Merchandise

    With free apps comes loss of anonymity.

    There is a trade-off between the user and the provider of apparently free online applications. It’s not implicit because it is built into the EULAs. The wording varies but the gist is pretty much the same: When you sign up for and use the service we’re providing, you are giving us information about you that we will use as we see fit for our financial advantage. The EULAs are getting more aggressive these days because the providers are using your data more aggressively.

    There’s more at the link

    • DandyTiger says:

      Yep, if what you’re getting is free, it’s very possible you are the product. That’s true of Facebook and most Google things. Feel like a mouse in a maze? Give me my damn cheese already. 🙂

      • Three Wickets says:

        Most ads don’t bother me much. I either opt out or ignore. What I really avoid diligently though are third party apps, especially in my social feeds. Yes the tracking bothers me some, but mainly I really don’t like the endless clutter. The battle against ADD is a neverending OCD mission.

        New Google privacy policy.

        I use gmail and I do search on google.
        I suppose I could make a point of logging off gmail before checking other websites – would that mean they are not permitted to track my clicks if I am not logged in?
        Also not search with google and use Bing or Yahoo instead.

  12. DandyTiger says:

    I just want to thank the DNC and the rulz committee one more time for all of this. You guys are extra special.

    NOW THIS IS GREAT NEWS

    American hostage in Somalia rescued by US Navy SEALs in overnight raid http://on.msnbc.com/xo4YpZ

    • 1539days says:

      And Obama was right there before the SOTU to thank… Leon Panetta.

      • HELENK says:

        CNN Pentagon: source says when Obama told Panetta “good job” before SOTU yest, hostages in #Somalia were secure but mission wasn’t yet over.

    its obvious Biden has had a face lift…. gotta appeal to those stoopid college kids again.

  15. yttik says:

    I watched the whole miserable affair. What’s with Obama kissing all the women? Seriously, after about 20 kisses it got kind of gross. I don’t think I like this policy of shaking men’s hands but kissing and hugging all the women, especially supreme court justices and your SOS.

    Congratulations to Gabby Giffords. I really am happy for her, but it’s becoming tacky the way they are parading her around like a Democratic Party mascot or something. We have thousands of troops with similar head injuries and it would be a lot classier if she could become an advocate for them, rather then for the Dem party and the president.

    The speech itself was total bovine poopies. Seriously, his idea of solving problems is to issue a declaration, like on his health care bill. I’m going to make sure everybody in this country has access to health insurance…by allowing you all to purchase it. Praise be to me! I’m going to fix the housing crisis, by making sure everybody who is qualified and able……. can refinance their home. Dude, we already have the ability to purchase health insurance if we can afford it and we already have the ability to refinance if we can afford it.

    I’m going to make sure everybody who can find a job and get hired……has a job. And that’s pretty much his plan.
