President Obama will give his State of the Union address to Congress next week.
I’m sure it will be filled with soaring rhetoric, but don’t expect it to be grounded in reality. Personally, I believe it will be pretty predictable and verging on comical.
President Obama: Due to my policies, the economy is humming again. Ignore the fact that labor force participation just fell to its lowest rate since the doldrums of the Jimmy Carter Administration.
President Obama: Despite the bumpy rollout, Obamacare is working. Never mind the 5 million Americans so far that were not allowed to keep the health insurance plans of their choice after being promised they could.
President Obama: We came together on a bipartisan budget agreement. Maybe the President will join Democrat Senator Tom Harkin in thanking Congressman Jack Kingston for funding Obamacare through his committee.
President Obama: You must act now on comprehensive immigration reform. Except for the part about securing our border first….
I also have a pretty good idea about what you won’t hear. Don’t expect a realistic jobs plan, or deficit reduction plan, or domestic energy plan, or tax reform plan, or education reform plan. That would just be too much to ask.
So after President Obama gets his final standing ovation, maybe stops to take a “selfie,” and signs some autographs before exiting the chamber, ask yourself a question: How stupid do these people in Washington think we really are?
PS: If you are like me, you’re tired of the empty rhetoric and broken promises by our politicians. To get real results, we need people with real world experience, a fresh prospective and new ideas in Washington. Please consider making a donation to our cause today. It matters.
