15 Dreadfully Treasonous Words In Obama’s Speech





cicero on treason

Obama huffed… and he puffed… and he, well, blew nothing down.

He moved nothing forward.

All that our once-mighty leader’s State of the Union address showed was how completely irrelevant he’s become.

In fact, the president began by practically admitting that his legislation is dead on arrival because of how unpopular he is with Congress.

But the problem isn’t Congress… You see, if his agenda was popular with the voters, Congress would be falling all over itself to pass it. Congress follows the voters, and the voters don’t want any more of what Obama’s selling.

Heil, Obama!

During his first two years in office, Barack Obama controlled all three branches of government. He had unprecedented approval, and he used the opportunity to pass several highly unpopular bills. Unfortunately for the president, those bills have gone on to define his legacy.

The most destructive to middle class finances – and the president’s popularity – has been the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.

You see, the Affordable Care Act was a gigantic political mistake. Obama allied himself with then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid to pass a bill with no Republican support whatsoever, rather than working toward a healthcare reform plan with bipartisan backing.

With that single act, Obama polarized the nation… and he hasn’t looked back since.

To this day, he continues to poison the body politic; and his newest plans – debuted to a national audience during the State of the Union – will cause even more division.

Since he can’t get anything done by working with others, Obama has decided to declare himself dictator and attempt to pass laws by executive order. His borderline treasonous words were, “Wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation…that’s what I’m going to do.”

I can’t help but be reminded of Hitler’s transition from the elected Chancellor of Germany to complete dictator, ruling by decree. Yet even that comparison isn’t entirely accurate. In 1933, the Reichstag passed a law and gave Hitler his power. Obama has simply decided to usurp his.

A Year of Inaction

Thankfully, though, the United States today isn’t like Germany in 1933. And despite Obama’s attempts to rule by executive order, I believe we’re actually witnessing the opposite – the disintegration of his power.

He can command all he wants; but without Congress’ backing, I doubt that states and local governments are going to listen to the president. In fact, his irrelevance may actually be highlighted by his decrees. But he’s going to try anyway.

Obama’s first decree will attempt to fix global warming. Amusingly, while he was speaking about global warming, nearly half of the country was huddled together fighting the abnormal cold.

Suffice it to say that the president’s rhetoric is badly out of touch with reality.

He actually stood before Congress and had the mendacity to call Obamacare a success! Just to recount, the first goal of the Affordable Care Act was to increase insurance coverage… and more people have lost insurance than have gained it under Obamacare.

The second goal was to make insurance affordable… yet insurance is more unaffordable now than at any time in our history.

Still, Obama blithely encouraged the people who were watching the State of the Union to sign up. Not surprisingly, he failed to mention the myriad problems with healthcare.gov, including security and inaccuracy concerns that have been well documented.

His grand flourish was to call for a “year of action.”

But I predict that, one year from now, when we’re once again subjected to an excruciatingly painful address, no significant legislation will have been signed by Obama.

If he actually does try to rule by decree, the courts will annul his diktats, one by one, until anything without a basis in existing legislation will be ruled unconstitutional.

Because Obama doesn’t have the character, personality, and charisma to move the nation to action, 2014 is more likely to be remembered as the year of inaction. He is untrusted, untalented, and ineffective as Commander-in-Chief.

He will be even worse as Dictator-in-Chief.

After the uninspiring 2014 State of the Union, several Democrats have revealed that they are not interested in Obama’s help in their re-election campaigns. The list includes Mark Begich (AK), Kay Hagan (NC), Mark Udall (CO), and Wisconsin Gubernatorial Candidate Mary Burke. Run, run, run as fast as you can. Don’t let him catch you; he’s the ObamaCare man.

Lots Of Laughs In Obama’s SOTU





Obama White House Laughing Stock SC

I admit I dozed off once or twice.

And for the first half-hour, I thought I was watching a rerun of last year’s State of the Union address.

But I hung in there, and Tuesday night turned out to be one of President Obama’s funniest addresses yet.

He didn’t tell any jokes, not on purpose anyway.

But I thought it was pretty amusing when he listed all the great things he’s done to end two wars, create millions of new jobs, reboot our oil and gas sector, and provide affordable health care for all.

Another good laugh came when he blamed Republicans for everything still wrong with the economy, as if he hasn’t been the president for the last five years.

If it weren’t for those rotten House Republicans, he implied, by now everyone would have a 0 percent mortgage, a subsidized college loan for their kids, and an hourly wage of at least $10.10.

That “Ten-Ten” line had me rolling on the floor. It also had the president’s fellow Democrats jumping to their feet and applauding like they were part of a synchronized gymnastics team.

Every Democrat stood, clapped robotically for 22.3 seconds, and sat down. They must have done the exact same thing 30 times.

Did the president have an audience applause director hiding off-camera in the House chamber? His speech was so well scripted, I felt like I was watching a late-night talk show.

You’d think once in a while a Democrat would get so jazzed up by one of the president’s socialist ideas that she’d leap from her seat, give out a loud “Yee-haw!”, or at least remain standing for more than 22.3 seconds.

And what was the big deal with this $10.10 minimum wage for federal contract workers, anyway? Is $10.10 supposed to be catchier? More memorable? Funnier?

Why not make it $12, Mr. President? Or $25 an hour, since we’re spending federal money and you and your White House comedy writers don’t believe minimum-wage hikes destroy jobs at places like McDonalds.

And talk about a crummy joke.

The president’s grandstanding executive edict won’t go into effect until 2015. It won’t affect old contracts. And it will only affect the 200,000 workers who don’t already make more than $10.10.

Like a Jay Leno opening monologue, the president’s jokes kept coming. By my count, about half of his applause lines turned into laugh lines.

Loud snickers were heard, at least at my conservative house, when he talked about cutting bureaucracy, streamlining the tax code, fixing immigration, and putting Joe Biden in charge of a program to train new workers.

Mr. Obama even tried to take credit for the oil and gas boom that has turned the USA into an energy superpower again and created tens of thousands of high-paying jobs in North Dakota, Texas, and Pennsylvania.

The president and the applauding Democrats were the only people in the room who didn’t get that joke.

America’s exploding oil and gas production has occurred on private lands because of the technological miracle of fracking, and it’s occurred in spite of the Obama administration’s green energy policies and restrictions on drilling on federal lands.

The funniest moment of the night for me came when President Obama repeated his threat that he was going to start using his executive powers to bypass Congress if it didn’t pass his pet legislation.

Two hundred and forty-four congressional Democrats leapt to their feet and applauded mindlessly for 22.3 seconds, as if they were not members of the legislative body the president had just said he planned to castrate.

The State of the Union address was a lot of laughs. But in the end, it was a sad commentary on the man who delivered it. After five years on the job, all he proved to the country was that he’s out of ideas and still good at reading from a teleprompter.
