Tonight’s State of the Union address shouldn’t surprise anyone. Expectations are already set to a very low bar. So what lies can we expect from Barry the Bullshitter? Will he wave his pen and cellphone around? Will he accuse the Republicans of not working with him? Will Obama apologize to the American people? How about the millions of people that have lost their health insurance, and their jobs? Will Obama mention anything about that? Will Obama announce his resignation? Too much to expect I suppose.
Lawlessness and a clear and present danger to the American people; Obama and the democrats, their media minions, continue to take the liberties upon American’s freedoms. Lying, it seems, is the only remaining core value these people have anymore.
I predict that Obama will call for an increase in the minimum wage. Which will cause more unemployment for young people. But what’s the worry? They can stay on their parents health insurance till they’re 26! If they want college loans, they are forced to go through the government squirrel wheel cage, where their futures will spin with never ending debt.
I predict that Obama will continue to blame George W. Bush and Republicans for his lousy economic policies and the high unemployment. Although, the media reports the unemployment rate at 7.6%, the actual rate is more like 15%. Because the actual numbers are fudged by not reporting those discouraged workers who have dropped out of the job market. I’m somewhat dubious of the statement of discouraged workers, because I believe workers want a job, but are having a hard time finding one.
I predict that Obama will call for a continuation of Unemployment insurance payments. Let’s see, unemployment insurance is suppose to be only 26 weeks, but then it was extending to 99 weeks. Some people have been on unemployment for the last 5 years! So I expect Obama to call for more emergency unemployment insurance. At what point do the people paying into the system start running out of money?
I predict that Obama will call for more renewable energy initiatives to combat global warming. Translation; more taxpayer’s monies spent on failing technologies like Solyndra. Somehow, the government in charge of energy development is a losing prospect for the American people. Note that the Keystone pipeline sits idle, and the EPA continues its war on coal and fossil fuels. I’m still waiting for someone to explain to me how energy is renewable after it has been spent. Especially, when there is an abundance of cheap available energy.
I predict Obama will call for the expansion of immigration amnesty for illegals. A slap in the face to those immigrants that followed the law, waited in line, and did the right thing. Expect to hear Obama repeat that same phrase, ‘it’s the right thing to do!’ Is it the right thing to allow lawlessness? When does it end? How is that fair to those that followed the rules?
I predict that Obama will continue to sputter divisive rhetoric using threats and intimidation. I fully expect to hear nothing new of any substance that will help the economy. I do expect to hear more lofty goals to increase jobs programs, but nothing to incentivize employers to hire. Are we to expect new jobs are to be all government jobs? How will that be paid for?
I predict Obama will make wild false claims about his policies. He will say that his policies are working to help the economy, creating jobs, lowering unemployment. He will continue to demonize groups like the Tea Party as obstructionist to his policies, and will be true. After 5 years of failed policies and lies, how can anyone trust this President to tell the truth?
Obama has repeated, over and over, that he’s not willing to negotiate. It’s my way, or the highway. This divisive rhetoric is all Barry the Bullshitter has left. For the next three years, I predict Obama will continue to lose the trust of the American people. As the Obamacare employer mandate starts to roll out, and more people start to lose their health care insurance, their doctors and their lives; maybe then will people start to wake up and start paying attention.
What’s For Dinner?
