State of the Union – huh?

Feb 28, 2008 by

Here are some of my initial thoughts on Bush’s State of the Union Speech of this morning. Is it just me?

Regarding questions as to whether the USA is recession bound, some of his responses were:

“We acted robustly. We’ll see the effects of this pro-growth package…”

“Why don’t we let stimulus package 1, which seemed like a good idea at the time, have a chance to kick in?”

Now, am I completely insane, or is doing what “seemed like a good at the time” the way to run a nation?

600 million people make up our economic base, and we’re relying on this guy who ran several oil based companies into the ground to do what he thinks is “a good idea at the time”? Have you SEEN the record of “Good Ideas” George?

“I don’t think we’re headed to recession. But no question, we’re in a slowdown.”


I’m guessing this statement & opinion don’t come with a degree from the London School of Economics. Maybe a large national slowdown in economic health is called a ‘recession’, ya stupid git.

When asked about the obvious trend in gasoline prices, (which have jumped over 10 cents a gallon in the past weeks, and could certainly hit $4.00 a gallon by summer) we got this: “That’s interesting. I hadn’t heard that. … I know it’s high now.”

How the hell did you not hear about sky rocketing gasoline prices, dude? Besides being the President of the Unites States, you’re a hand-holding friend of the Arab Families that we buy all that gas from. In fact, you just went there (at our expense) to IMPROVE this situation. The one you hadn’t heard anything about. Idiot boy.

And now that the Senate has passed a version of his eaves-dropping bill, Mister Bush is pushing his program to get it through Congress, eliminating all responsibility for the communication companies he arm-twisted into complying.


They were told by the White House “that their assistance was legal and vital to national security.”

And now we get:”Allowing these lawsuits to proceed would be unfair.”

What’s unfair here is that the US government forced communication companies to comply with breaking the law & violating our rights without fear of prosecution. Now they can’t back it up, because they broke the law themselves. And they want to go back in time and change the rules so that they can’t be busted for cheating. Is this some retarded set of playground rules?

You bet.

It’s called Spoiled Rich Kid Bully Tactics.

It’s WHY we have laws.

So people like this can’t screw everybody over and get away with it. Or can they?

They tell us: “the litigation process could lead to the disclosure of information about how we conduct surveillance and it would give al-Qaida and others a roadmap as to how to avoid the surveillance.”


They spy on any phone making international calls, even after that call is over. They check your myspace, your library history, what magazines you subscribe to, etc. all because your aunt called during her picture taking frenzy in Egypt.

‘Look at the nice Pyramids, with Uncle Sid standing next to the camel!’


You’re on the list. McCarthyism, revisited.

Isn’t it the trick of all spoiled children to say, “well, I can’t tell you what I did, because it will give away the Important Secret.” The important secret is that the White House got caught breaking the law (again) and dragging huge multinational corporations along for the ride.

I remember Kenneth Starr spending, oh, about eleventy kabillion dollars prosecuting Clinton for impeachment for getting a hummer.

Now these thugs are playing Turn Back The Clock and Do-Over as they bottom out the economy, sell out our oil interests, spy on American Citizens and change the laws of the Constitution to legalize criminal activity when they get caught at it. All to protect you from Al-Qaida.

Who is going to portect you from them?


Anybody is better than this.

They’ll spend four years just cleaning up the mess…

I hope you all have your voting hats handy.
