Last night we boarded the Big Yellow Bus…
and headed over to the Capital for Big Guy’s last SOTU where, promising brevity, he droned on for an hour - which is brief in Obama-speak.
In order to save time he declined to mention Lady M and her symbolic guests this year, including the victims of gun violence who were invited butt unable to attend.
That empty chair symbolism will continue to have a lasting impact on the legacy of the Obama presidency. Although oddly enough, nobody seemed to comprehend the power of the motif the first time around.
The professor’s mostly self-congratulatory final SOTU lecture could best be described as a yuge pat on the back. Barry took credit for everything from saving the auto industry, destroying the medical system, “reinventing” the energy industry (i.e. all things green: solar,wind and algae) and ending the worst economic crisis ever. Oh yeah, and killing Osama Bin Laden. He also took a bow for “partnering with local forces in Syria” to address the ongoing
quagmire situation there, as if he had no role in it’s creation. Wow! That kind of comparmentalization makes even Bill Clinton look like a piker.
Oh sure, there are still a few crical issues left on BHO’s plate: He’s going to cure cancer, and I think he put Joey B in charge:
Tonight, I’m announcing a new national effort to get it done. And because he’s gone to the mat for all of us, on so many issues over the past forty years, I’m putting Joe in charge of Mission Control.
Now that really would be a “big f***ing deal.”
Other things on BO’s “to do” list: campaign finance reform and climate change initiatives. Items on every American’s top 250 list of most important things.
And despite all evidence to the contrary, Big Guy firmly rejected the notion that we are a nation in decline; headed down the nihilistic path of perdition. Although he did acknowledge that:
“Masses of fighters on the back of pickup trucks and twisted souls plotting in apartments or garages pose an enormous danger to civilians and must be stopped. But they do not threaten our national existence.”
No sir, that threat comes from within.
So last night’s address was a perfectly delusional retrospective of Obama’s America where all the women are shtrong, the men good-looking, and the children above average. Oh, and Lady M remains the country’s paragon of fashion and elegance.
