A Small, Incoherent State
of the Union Address

Weekly Standard, by Stephen F. Hayes

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/29/2014 4:23:03 AM

President Barack Obama delivered a State of the Union Address on Tuesday that was important less for what he said than for what it says about him. The speech was long, more than an hour. At times it was defiant, at others it felt almost conciliatory. But mostly the speech was forgettable, disposable – a long list of modest policy proposals that will not be remembered for much longer than their echo in the House chamber. On domestic policy, we knew what to expect. The stars of last year’s speech – immigration and gun control – were mere afterthoughts this year,

That raise in minimum wages to contractors is another "Nothing Burger". Contractors are contracted because they do something well, better than the payroll people. So, they are already getting paid way over the minimum wage. Like the people who built the obamaCare website, all getting $80/hr and higher.

Also, few or none of contracting have janitors, etc on the payroll. They contract that out.

obama is such a loser, 24X7.

Q: When you´ve been exposed as "Liar Of The Year" (yes, Barack, that´s you), what kind of people do you hope for in your audience?
A: People who want you to continue lying (yes, that´s you, "progressive" Democrats).

I fully intended to contribute to low ratings for this speech, but I tuned in anyway, just to see if I could catch a glimpse of Sean Hannity as Louie Gohmert´s plus-one. Thirty minutes into it, I got bored of hearing that voice drone on in faux-lecture/campaign/preacher mode (again-happens every time-yawn....) and watching the clapping seals jump up and down at every little imagined yardage like the cheerleaders they are, and decided last night´s DVR´d Blacklist was much more appealing.

He wasn´t taken into custody, before, during or after, so the coup continues.

Will one journalist/commentator, just one cut to the bone and tell the truth? This is an imperial President who has and continues to violate his oath of office. Instead we get these articles and other commentary on the talk shows describing Obama as just another President who is in the fifth year of his second term, running out of ideas, etc - like it´s the same old same. It´s not fer cryin out loud.

I don´t buy this "imperial presidency" line. Odumbdumb has been reduced to a liberal cliché on an endless loop. His executive orders, such as the minimum wage increase, affects nearly no one who might really need it. The more appropriate label for him is the lawless president. It´s where he chooses to ignore passed laws or enforce rejected bills. And that will be a matter for the courts to sort, barring a miracle in which the GOP ends up with 67 senate seats.

Please just forget about the media lapdogs ever coming to their senses. It is not going to happen. They will not now or in the future tell the truth about the boy king. He is their god. They put all their hopes and dreams on the guy to deliver their progressive utopia. They will not consider blaming anyone but those darn obstructionist extreme right wing racist Republicans. They will never consider that his policies are failures. They do not know how to grow an economy. They can grow government like nobody´s business though but that will never grow the economy. The State of the Union is exactly what Obama has made of it, an abject failure. The media is going to have a very hard time spinning prosperity when people are experiencing poverty. Even the great and powerful Obama can´t alter reality.

We are all in debt to those poor souls who have to watch such dreck for a living. I would no more watch Fauxbama give a SOTU than I would listen to a sermonette from the Gorebot. Fauxbama is a liar, a constant, consistent liar. It makes no difference whatsoever what he says. He will contradict it or deny it or rephrase it whenever it suits his purposes. If you like your SOTU you can listen to it. Not me, thank you very much. Even MacPaper gave it short shrift.

White House officials had told reporters on background that the president would emphasize his determination to act, with or without Congress. Obama sought to make that point...
And he did say it with Chief Justice Roberts sitting right in front of him!

What does Obama have on John Roberts? In one picture I saw, Roberts was applauding Barry - I think it was either when Barry walked in or walked out. Roberts had that stupid smile on his face where his eyes look glazed over. I wanted to throw something at the TV!

This mess in our nation could have been prevented if the Supremes had done their job!!! Yet, they continue to ignore the unlawful acts and attempts by Barry and his cohort Dems to undermine the Constitution!

I noticed that Justices Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Sonia Sotamayor were not in attendance for the speech. Each of the three "constitutionalists" have expressed their distaste for being there, according to TMZ:
Scalia, last year called the State of the Union a "childish spectacle."
Thomas said: "it has become so partisan and it´s very uncomfortable for a judge to sit there."
Alito who mouthed "not true" during Obama´s 2010 SOTU address has said:"he did not enjoy sitting "like the proverbial potted plant" during the speech.

Justice Sotamayer was in California.

Judging from the lack of reaction I´ve seen on the news portals so far, I´m guessing we won´t be seeing any follow-up on those "SOTU as defining moment" and "Obama to use SOTU to get his mojo back" stories. Must have been a spectacularly banal failure.

Didn´t watch a single moment of it. Stayed busy on my computer. But just as a bit of info for most, all of this talk about raising the minimum wage for federal contractors is just a smoke screen. For many years now, federal contractors fall under what is known as the Davis-Bacon act which mandates that federal contractors must pay their employees prevailing wages and benefits for that particular area. And just guess who gets to set the "prevailing wages"? The UNIONS of course.

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas.

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

CHICAGO -- Walter Unbehaun has spent nearly all of his adult life behind bars, so it´s not surprising that he faces sentencing Thursday for yet another crime, a bank robbery last year. His reason for robbing the bank is surprising, though: He was homesick for prison. The 74-year-old high-school dropout and part-time bathtub repairman probably isn´t the first long-term convict to find he prefers being barked at by guards to life on the outside, which has its own demands. But living alone and feeling unhappy, Unbehaun decided to change his situation by committing a crime in order to get caught. On Feb.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
