Our political partisanship has become so predictable that the response to the official response to the speech that Big Guy won’t deliver until tonight is already on the wires:
In preparation for President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night, the Democratic National Committee on Monday gathered lawmakers for a conference call with reporters to offer a “prebuttal” to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s not-yet-delivered Republican rebuttal to Obama’s not-yet-delivered national address.
Just as Obama's speech and Rubio's response will likely be full of focus-grouped buzzwords, the Democratic prebuttal contained typical partisan rhetoric repackaged for the occasion. For instance, Wasserman Schultz said Rubio wanted to "gut Medicaid" and would "devastate seniors" by supporting "an extreme view of government that would dismantle America's social safety net in order to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires."
She went on to say that Rubio's plans would put "nursing homes at risk" and that services for "disabled children" could be eliminated.
A pre-buttal? Debbie Wasserman-Schultz? What ASSet accumulation plan has she presented to earn that privilege?
I’m not saying she doesn’t have the goods to be considered a future contender:
And with those cankles, she may even have a shot at becoming the First Female non-Black President. Butt come on! If anyone has earned the right to offer a “pre-buttal” it surely isn’t DWS.
Allow me to submit the following as evidence:
I rest my case.
Don’t feel bad if you don’t have time to listen to the SOTU speech tonight; I’ve already heard it and it’s a repeat.
