Did you watch President Obama's Congessional Address

The pep fest.
.
Did you listen to all of those wonderful promises last night?
.
He sure speaks well, doesn't he. No, that's not a question.
.
I do have to ask this however, how will he accomplish all of this? For instance, how will he end cancer? "Our recovery plan... will launch a new effort to conquer a disease that has touched the life of nearly every American by seeking a cure for cancer in our time." - Source
.
Yeah. But some people seem to be waking up today and smelling something not quite right. For instance, Sen. Robert Byrd sees something else going on:
.
"Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), the longest-serving Democratic senator, is criticizing President Obama’s appointment of White House “czars” to oversee federal policy, saying these executive positions amount to a power grab by the executive branch.
.
In a letter to Obama on Wednesday, Byrd complained about Obama’s decision to create White House offices on health reform, urban affairs policy, and energy and climate change. Byrd said such positions “can threaten the Constitutional system of checks and balances. At the worst, White House staff have taken direction and control of programmatic areas that are the statutory responsibility of Senate-confirmed officials.” - Source
.

One item that will be on the curriculum of state run schools after Obama's education reform is in place will be all of the speeches made by fearless leader - just watch - last night's address will probably be compared to the Gettysburg Address. Maybe not. But the following is a pull-quote that is sure to be repeated over and over and over again by educators and lobbyists, for the rest of his term and beyond:
.
"Dropping out of high school is no longer an option. It's not just quitting on yourself, it's quitting on your country." - Source
.
He's gooooood. Kinda JFK-ish.

    I do not listen to Obama. I do not watch anything that features Obama. I am a member of the Loyal Resistance Movement (if one exists)and awaiting my Mission:Impossible regarding how to keep food down if Obama's face or voice appears on screen durig mealtimes. We are working on a vaccine to immunize the population from the rampant Obamaitis that is decemating the nation.

  2. Terry, my teen already had to read an Obama address, one Obama gave while running for the Senate in Chicago! It wasn't even his inaugural address!

    I told my child that he is our Nation's president and they should read his campaign speeches and inaugural address, but at a Catholic school (and for an English class, not history or government) it should be juxtaposition to recent addresses of our dear Pope!

    Go figure.

  6. He doesn't know how to pronounce Ottawa - which is Canada's capitol that he just visited. Kept calling it Iowa. Dunce. And they laughed at Sarah Palin.
