Conservative Corner: The Staggering of the Union Address

On Tuesday, January the 28th President Barrack Hussein Obama preformed his State of the Union Address speech. He was there to inform the country of his plans and the state of the union. It appeared to be the same typical narcissistic speech that certain presidents give when they are trying to convince people of things that they probably don’t want. A recent radio news broadcast claimed that 17 percent of Americans had no interest at all in Obama’s State of the Union speech. I was part of that 17 percent until I decided that in all fairness I really should hear what the leader of the “free” world had to say. Unfortunately, my suppositions were mostly confirmed.
Being a conservative, you can be sure that I would not agree with a great deal of what Obama said. There were, however, a few things that I agreed with. I have compiled a list of things that I thought were either good and /or truths and things that are bad and/or lies. There are some things he said that are debatable, on the other hand, there are some things he said that would break any bullshit meter. The one thing that Obama’s speech reassured us of is his inability to turn his head more than a 45 degree angle unless his Teleprompters allow it.
Obama informed us that oil production is up in America is up and that during the last budget deal, (the first one of the entire administration) no one really got what they wanted. He also went rambling on with “Duh” comments like work hard so you can get ahead, we need tax reform, protect home ownership, troop support and the need for better education. I’m not saying all of the president’s speech was all wrong, It’s just the wrongs out-weighed the rights, literally.
The Obama falsity started early in the speech with his bragging of the national debt and high school graduation levels. He claimed that under his administration the debt has decreased by more than half, when in fact the national dept has soared to more than 17 trillion dollars. I just hope no one tells Obama what comes after a trillion. He also told us that the graduation rate in American is the highest in 30 years. According to http://www.ed.gov 26 states reported lower graduation rates and only 24 states reported unchanged or slightly increased numbers.
The president also said “so wherever and whenever I can take step without legislation, that’s what I’m going to do”. To my knowledge, most things a president does requires the approval of Congress. For Obama to avoid Congress to advance his agenda is illegal and guilty of treason.
He also claimed, that we don’t need the “accident of birth” to get in the way of our work ethics. He also claims that less government threatens shutdown, yet he says he wants to cut government bureaucracy and promises to use his power to battle the global warming myth, which is more evidence of government waitsing too much of the people’s money. Obama continued his attempt at splitting our country by preaching on his war on race and economic inequality. I also heard Obama threaten those who are against Obamacare by telling them not even try to stop the failed health care plan.
The president did say some things I approve, but since I trust him about as far as I can throw him, I think he said some of these things just to make Republicans and the conservatives happy. The only thing Obama did that brought a standing ovation to the whole room is giving honors to Army Ranger Sergeant First Class Cory Remsburg.
No president is perfect, has a perfect presidency, or a perfect State of the Union speech, but I was hoping to something that would make conservatives happy too. To a socialist president, I guess that is not the case. According to Gallup, only 42 percent of Americans approve of how Obama is handling the job. With 58 percent of the people not happy, one would think he would change his tactics, apparently not. May the people should remind Obama and the Democrats what the people really want, to follow the Constitution, and freedom.
