I just flipped the television on so I can blog live on Bush’s speech. The
Jerry Springer Show State of the Union Address hasn’t even started yet, but CBS correspondents are already speculating that Bush will highlight differences between the Republicans and the Democrats. I wonder which differences they will cover: the fact that both parties support deficit spending, both parties support the war on Iraq, and both parties voted for the Patriot Act. Oops, I forgot — those aren’t differences.
It’s a freaking standing ovation (big surprise). Gag me.
Standing ovation number two. I am feeling the acid in my throat, now. I might projectile vomit at the television.
Standing ovation number three. John Kerry and Diane Feinstein looked happy together. I’m ralphing already. Not too chunky, yet.
Bush is talking about Coretta Scott King and the irony doesn’t even seem to phase him. Bush is now talking about political debate, but failed to mention that he ducked third party debates in his races. He seems to want people be be nicer to him. Awwwwww.
Bush: “[Democracy] respects the rights of their citizens and neighbors.”
Me: What about America? We’d like our rights respected here, too.
Bush is now stating that Al Quaeda wishes to take control in Iraq. We now know what will be replacing the worn out WMD lines.
Bush’s exit strategy: No peace or honor in retreat. If we leave, the bad guys will attack us here. Throwing things at the boob bube now.
Bush is now helping the Iraqis fight corruption. Perhaps he should look out his own tent flap, first.
He’s bragging about the Iraqi Constitution. What about ours?
Bush: “The road of victory is the road that will take our troops home.”
He scored on the wording of this one, but he clearly doesn’t really mean it.
He said he will seek out our good advice (as long as it agrees with his views) and the morons clapped.
He said it again: A retreat from Iraq would put the bad guys in charge. More applause in DC and more barfing across America.
Bush: “Our men and women in uniform are making sacrifices.”
How many children of Representatives, Senators, Supreme Court Justices, and Cabinet officers are making those sacrifices? Where are Bush’s children?
Bush used the word liberty without realizing the irony. He really is stupid.
He is telling the people of Iraq how much he respects them. I guess those Abu Ghraib pictures are signs of his respect.
He urged Congress to serve the interests of America. Now that would truly be a first in my lifetime.
Now he’s throwing verbal yellow “Support the Troops” car magnets at the audience.
He urged for the Patriot Act to be passed, and morons who voted for it clapped on.
Now he is excusing domestic spying with the same lines of shit which have been spewing from the White House for a couple of weeks. And the morons clap on…
Bush: The economy is great. Jobs are great. Everything is great.
Me: How ’bout spending time with a typical American family and see if you say the same thing? Go live in a typical home somewhere in the heartland for a week.
Wow! He wants us to have more of our own money. Does this mean he will quit spending our money?
I missed some, as I had to grab a towel to wipe up some of the vomit.
He is complaining about Medicare and Medicaid expenses — and yet it was his prescription benefit plan that was the greatest expansion in government healthcare since LBJ.
Now he wants a commission to fix Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. I wonder how many trillion the ultimate consequence of this already doomed adventure will cost future generations.
He just said “global trade” and “buy American” in the same sentence.
ramble ramble ramble on the same old immigration lines which change nothing.
Bush: “wider use of electronic records” pertaining to health care. Just throw them in the same database with all our other private records.
Advance Energy Initiative. Yawn! BRB.
Nu-CUE-lar snapped me back. Is he talking about a new military strategy for the middle east?
He wants less foreign oil by 2025. Does this mean his personal profits (and those of his friends) will go up?
American Competitiveness Initiative. How about an Impeach Bush Initiative?
Now he is discussing how he wishes to leave even more children behind.
And the morons clap on…
He says we should be compassionate. What about all the people in federal prison for drug charges, then?
Democrats standing and clapping. Gag me.
He snuck in a homophobic clause.
Now he is bragging about Alito and Roberts. I wonder how many fundamental Constitutional rights will will lose under them.
Sandra Day O’Conner is retiring. Like this will restore any of our liberties.
Now he is opposed to all forms of cloning. The only cloning I am worried about is if someone cloned Bush.
“Uphold the public trust”, “ethical standards” and “public responsibility” LMAO!!!!!!
I was laughing too hard to catch what Laura Bush just did.
He is now taking credit for the post-Katrina disaster which was mostly caused by the government.
He is talking about AIDS and smirking.
He is comparing himself to Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King. The only point in common is that Lincoln disregarded the Constitution, too.
He closed his bullshit and the morons clapped on…
