The U.S."Sputnik moment" all over again. Another take on "Yes We Can."
We were sitting around waiting on the big annual pornographic political show and I asked "what time do you think the speech will start." Someone said "about 9:15." I said "no, it will start at 9:11." When it did I was asked how I knew that and why they might have timed it that way. I said "it's just a part of how they play the game."
That's crazy talk or just a coincidence you may say. Maybe ... but I'm not so sure.
You can read the transcript of the entire speech here, but as always, nothing Obama says is worth the type on a teleprompter when there's the big lie of al Qaeda and 9/11 that has to be repeated over and over again. It's what the speechwriters will never leave out.
"Of course as we speak, al Qaeda and their affiliates continue to plan attacks against us."
"Our purpose is clear, by preventing the Taliban from reestablishing a stranglehold over the Afghan people, we will deny al Qaeda the safe haven that served as a launching pad for 9/11."
Basically the SOTU speech was Obama telling the American people ... STFU, we're going to do as we please and you're going to bend over and take it.
I think we're told that each and every year and what do we do about it? In essence ... nothing.
