"Folks," OFA just sent me
some progaganda for a sneak preview of the SOTU. Our Beloved Leader starts out by selling the tax cut frame, believe it or not. Then he frames that in terms of the deficit. Then on to "compromise" and "bipartisanship." Then he frames all that in term of "spurring the private sector to create millions of new jobs." In other words, The Lightbringer recycles every stale cliche from thirty years of neo-liberal policies, with special attention to R talking points.
Obama is so full of shit. Lie, lies, nothing but lies. Well, dance with them that brung ya. Also, he sounds just as stilted as Bush ever did. Off kilter accents on some words, cadence off, and so on. Odd. I mean, he never was any good as an orator, but now he's worse.
NOTE Oh, and the theme of the OFA mail is "win the future." What does that even mean?
Obama to Press Centrist Agenda in His Address
While most midterm presidents use the State of the Union to take credit for their achievements to date, Mr. Obama is constrained by the facts that unemployment remains above 9 percent, that his signature domestic achievement — the expansion of health insurance coverage — remains unpopular with nearly half the couCompetitivenessntry, and that prospects for withdrawing many troops from Afghanistan later this year remain uncertain at best.
A modest man, who has much to be modest about. Competitiveness!
Oh, and our elected representatives are going to choose their seats regardless of legacy party affiliation. Showing, if you had any doubts, that they're one entity (even if they do hate each other).
