JANNEY: Obama will cure cancer and save the planet (aka the 2015 SOTU)Posted by Sam Janney on January 20, 2015
So I made it, I sat through the 2015 State of the Union so you good people wouldn’t have to. Yes, I’m a giver… or a glutton for punishment, I’m not entirely sure just yet. As usual, President Obama was his charming yet annoying smug self, taking jabs at tradition and mocking those who may disagree with him. From a flat-out misconception about women making less than men to penguins kicking the bucket because of global warming, it was the quintessential Obama speech.
He proclaimed that 2014 was a break-through year, that our economy is soaring like an eagle and unemployment is the lowest its been since 1999 (conveniently when Clinton was still in office.) Now those of us who can actually think for ourselves know the unemployment rate is a joke and just recently claims for unemployment benefits have climbed for four months straight but hey, those in attendance at the SOTU aren’t concerned about thinking for themselves. This was evident as the president spoke about free community college, took credit for low gas prices and insisted more Americans have coverage than ever before.
Of course he left out how doctors and nurses are leaving the field in droves and hospitals are closing but I digress. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Obama intends to cure cancer and other diseases… he said so.
The president patted himself on the back because supposedly energy production in America is at an all-time high and we haven’t been less dependent on foreign oil in 30 years; he did not mention the number of coal plants his regulations are closing, the thousands who are losing their jobs because of it or give credit to fracking. Oh no, he was busy pushing wind, sun and rainbow energy (with this admin that could be a thing).
Obama pushed respect for vets, job creation and college for all young people, even though 1 in 4 college grads is unemployed or underemployed. He gloated about our global placement and Democrats applauded loudly when he mentioned taking down terrorists “as he always has”… although he made no mention of who these terrorists and violent extremists are. Obama even admitted his number one job is keeping this country safe.
My favorite part of his speech was when he spoke about the need for free childcare. Yup, apparently in his Constitutional studies he saw something that said it is the government’s responsibility to provide free child care, probably right next to the amendment about free health care and free birth control. Apparently the word “free” is all over the Constitution, who knew?
Oh yeah, and amnesty? He said he’d veto any efforts of congress to stop amnesty, even though 76 percent of us don’t want it. But as a Democrat, Obama fully believes we just don’t know any better, can’t think for ourselves so of course we don’t understand that we do want it, right?
So long story short, Obama promised us the world as long as climate change doesn’t blow it up first and kill the penguins. He is going to give us everything including the kitchen sink because he KNOWS Republicans will never go for any of this nonsense and a year from now he can blame them for nothing getting done. Let’s be honest, Obama doesn’t really care about making America great, he only cares about making himself look great and his ignorant, mindless base loves it.
Mark my words, next year when all of the penguins have exploded from climate change and Obama has failed to cure cancer, he’ll blame the GOP and insist they only care about the wealthy and not the middle class and then he’ll pander to his base in an effort to pimp them for Hillary. Or Warren. Or whichever moonbat the Democrats run.
Makes me wonder, will 2015 be a break-through year in Obama’s mind as well? My guess is no, and it will be all Bush’s fault.
