Barack Antony - The Neutering of an Election
As I type, we are a few hours away from President Obama’s pep rally, a/k/a State of the Union. It has also been nicknamed the “Prom”, due to the touchy-feely Kumbaya atmosphere being created in order to neuter the new Republican Congress. If what the media is reporting is true regarding his speech, then indeed they will have backed themselves into a corner. Based on CNN’s claim of having the early version of the speech Obama will say:
“With their votes, the American people determined that governing will now be a shared responsibility between parties. New laws will only pass with support from Democrats and Republicans. We will move forward together, or not at all -- for the challenges we face are bigger than party, and bigger than politics.”
If the Republicans keep playing the docile lamb they will miss an opportunity to turn the tables on Obama. Is Obama suggesting that before this election the American people did not want governing to be a shared responsibility? Or how does he come to his conclusion that it should be shared when the election overwhelmingly went against Liberal politics? By using the cliché “We will move forward together, or not at all” did that apply to his ramming the Socialized Medicine Bill down American’s throats without even allowing Republicans in the debate?
Now suddenly, after having created the biggest deficit for any president in the country’s history, the challenges are now bigger? As expected he will make his campaign speech disguised as an attempt to unify different policies, and if they are not careful, the Republicans will play into his hands. By sitting together due to the Arizona shooting, the Republicans have docilely surrendered to the lie that it was politically motivated. Through deceit, Obama is successfully muzzling the mandate that the American people set forth last November. Obama resembles the likes of Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez with his propaganda. He reminds me of Mark Antony supposedly burying Caesar when in fact he has other motives.
Perhaps Obama should begin his speech with….
“Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;”
It would be most appropriate.
