I’m gearing up for this thing, though I’m not real excited. I could be doing better things…like sleeping. However, I have my Leinenkugel’s Limited (which doesn’t technically release until next Tuesday, but our local store jumped the gun) and I have my computer humming. Let’s do this thing…
Obama went for the broad brush and failed.
9:12 – We do big things??? That was pretty lame. I’m glad it’s over.
9:08 – Is he suggesting it would be easier if we lived in a Communist country?
9:07 – Yes, it would have been nice for Elena Kagan to allow military recruiters on campus.
9:02 – Let ‘us’ be clear…
9:01 – If you defeat someone, does that mean you are victorious? Oh crap, I said it.
8:57 – Why that sounds like a bill the Republicans put forth i.e. earmarks.
8:57 – Rebuild faith in government? You Democrats did a great job of trouncing any faith over the last several years.
8:56 – We are 45 minutes in and I feel like he has said nothing.
8:55 – Folks are all about that joke.
8:52 – First he rules out any meaningful reform to Social Security, then he knocks on the rich and says millionaires should give up their money for others, but that’s not punishing their success. What a dope.
8:51 – His line about repealing the health bill adding to the deficit will probably end up in a fact check.
8:50 – I put together a commission to do my job and then I didn’t like their ideas.
8:49 – That airplane metaphor was absolutely dumb and everybody thought so.
8:48 – Let’s freeze spending…like we did last year.
8:48 – They deserve a government that stays within its means. Good luck.
8:45 – Let’s get this straight. I’m not laughing about your government takeover of healthcare.
8:42 – Get crazy over that health care folks.
8:41 – Are we not now going to rewrite the tax code to benefit the green energy folks?
8:37 – Infrastructure…Redouble means what? It didn’t work the first time. How do you figure on paying for it? You broke the bank the first time. Hey, it’s 40 years ago, we’re gonna do it with high speed rail!
8:36 – Sure it makes sense. It’s called “quit breaking the law!” If he thinks he’s getting amnesty now, he’s crazy.
8:34 – Huh? So we transferred the bailout? It’s a form of higher class welfare then?
8:31 – I just missed what he said. I was busy filling my glass with delicious beer. I did hear him mention Race to the Top…otherwise known as a bogus way for the Feds to further control the schools using our taxpayer money.
8:26 pm – Hey, you know how else we break our dependence on foreign oil? We drill here. Great idea, let’s go after oil companies, that’s a new idea. Let’s give that money to other capitalist companies that donate to Obama. Crony Capitalism.
8:25 pm – We’re not just handing out money???? Uh, yeah, that’s pretty much what you have been doing.
8:22 pm – Innovate…here comes the calls for new spending. How do we get out of the recession? A space race? Oh wait, nope just clean energy, big shock.
8:20 pm – Out innovate, out educate, and out build the rest of the world. Hard to do with onerous regulations. Responsibility for our deficit? When?
8:18 pm – The world is changing and there is competition. That’s not news.
8:17 pm – Americans paychecks really aren’t much bigger and who pushed for the tax cuts??? Pretty sure Republicans made the push.
8:16 pm – Wait, I thought corporate profits were a bad thing????
8:16 pm – Now everything has to be bipartisan….elections suddenly don’t matter but jobs do.
8:15 pm – Acknowledges the absurdity of sitting together as a sign that everything is great.
8:11 pm – Immediate reference to Giffords…necessary.
8:05 pm – Here we go.
