HDR 115: State of the Union Snoozer
ALOHA, ALL!!! Good grief…..that was a State of the Union address?? YIKES!! Even Ruth Bader Ginsburg couldn’t take it: RealClearPolitics – Video – Justice Ginsburg Appears Asleep Through Most Of SOTU Was James Clyburn reading a book? Kathleen Sebelius looked like she was in a coma. And that “Date Night” thing sure worked out well, didn’t it? Funny thing – it was meant to cool the GOP from responding vociferously, but it kept the Dems from being exuberant in their responses. LOL! I have to say that my favorite date picture/odd couple was the one of Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson. Nelson looked like he had just eaten some pot-laced brownies and Rubio’s body language was saying “seriously, now?”
More SOTU wrap-up: Notice how 0bama mentioned Allen Brothers Roofing from Michigan? They developed photovoltaic panels and were heralded as “re-inventing themselves.” Sure….they got $500,000 in stimulus money. With that much money, who couldn’t re-invent?

While 0bama was talking a big game, Speaker Boehner invited champions of school vouchers as his personal guests to the SOTU speech: Speaker Boehner Honors School Choice | The Foundry: Conservative Policy News. Boehner plans to introduce a bill on Wednesday to restore the DC voucher program.
And did you notice? 0bama’s famous “Joe the Plumber” line was tweaked during the SOTU address. He told Joe in 2008: “It’s not that I want to punish you for your success, I just think it’s better when we spread the wealth around.” During the SOTU, 0bama said in regard to taxing the “wealthy”: “We’re not punishing their successes, we’re promoting America’s success.” Bull feathers – you’re still spreading the wealth around, no matter how you try to sugar-coat it.
