As last year, I had better things to do than watch Obama’s 100 minute+ self-aggrandizing fest. Just skimming through the text is entertaining enough.
Justices Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, skipped Obama’s address this year. After the disrespect B. Hussein showed the Justices at last year’s SOTU, I don’t blame them a bit.
The complete text of the 2011 SOTU farce is here:
He delivers lies with such finesse.
There were several lines in the speech that really takes an actor to say with a straight face.
1. “Thanks to the tax cuts we passed”.
What the fuck??? If anything, the Dems tried to INCREASE taxes and let the Bush tax cuts expire before they were forced to relinquish the majority, but the tactic failed. In Obama’s vernacular failed tax increase=”cut”.
2. He used the term “investing” as doublespeak for “spending”. That’s actually what he has in mind; more “stimulus”. (Spending) The last “investment” on the part of Obama’s regime cost the taxpayers over $800 billion is wasted earmarks and pork.
3. Speaking of earmarks, he said this:
And because the American people deserve to know that special interests aren’t larding up legislation with pet projects, both parties in Congress should know this: if a bill comes to my desk with earmarks inside, I will veto it…
Remember, every promise Obama makes has an expiration date. All of them.
4. His “Win the Future” phrase has already been taken; by a Republican website. He probably thought no one would catch that.
Obama spent the weekend talking about the need to “win the future” in what sounds like the beginnings of a re-election slogan. But a conservative activist in Oregon owns the winthefuture websites, virtually ensuring that Republicans will define the catch phrase in their own way.
Obama talked about “how we’ll win the future” in his weekly address and in a video on Saturday when he previewed his State of the Union address for supporters. That video closed with a “Win the Future” graphic that elevated the phrase to a potential re-election mantra.
BarackObama.com will be the President’s online hub for his re-election campaign, but if people go to WintheFuture.com, they are likely to get a very different perspective from Obama’s vision.
Retired engineering consultant Glenn Pelikan of Portland, Ore., registered WintheFuture.com (and all associated extensions, including .org and .net) in 2007, a couple of years after former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) released his book, “Winning the Future.”

“Win” the future? He’s fucked it up pretty bad.
