POTUS Podium

Right now Obama is speaking at the Oso Fire Department a few miles from the horrific mudslide that happened one month ago. Throughout his speech, he has kept referring to… Ahso. Darrington, Arlington, and Ahso.

Oso is the Spanish word for bear and I’ve never heard it pronounced any other way than Oh-soh. So I’d like to believe that Oh-soh is how to say it. While many are impressed that he stopped in Oso to meet with survivors and their families on the way to Tokyo, frankly I’m embarrassed that his people might not have taken the time to review the name’s pronunciation. Someone on his staff should have done this; it’s their job to keep him informed. He also referred to Oso Fire Chief Willy Harper twice as the sheriff. (more…)

Marshmallow Fluff

From Wikipedia

“I’ll act on my own.”

Those were the most memorable words in tonight’s State of the Union address, delivered as if we Americans had elected a monarch rather than a servant of the people.

There were no big surprises in SOTU this evening. It was mostly rehash, retread, recycle– the usual worn ideas that feel good but lack substance or logic. The disjointed speech, punctuated mostly by Democratic applause, was oozing socialism and Green Gospel, as evidenced by the emphatic statement “climate change is a fact!” among others. I am passionate about protecting the environment but I do not believe in using questionable science to force people into a particular, micromanaged way of life. (more…)

Today I was sickened to hear on the radio that Egyptians are blaming the U.S. for the violence and death in their country.

Citizens of Egypt, hear me loud and clear: please do not confuse average Americans with the guy in the White House.

I, for one, have always been against the United States giving most foreign aid and this point illustrates a great reason to support that stance: American dollars are going straight to people who are against everything we stand for. (more…)

In a world rife with bigoted extremists who want to destroy us and our way of life, it is mind-boggling to think that Barack Obama could get voted back into office.

I’ve followed politics since I was very young and never before have I seen an administration more shifty, more two-faced, or more inept on foreign policy matters. For the record, I am no fan of George Bush’s either.

This week the Las Vegas Review-Journal published an editorial calling Obama a narcissistic amateur, saying, “This administration is an embarrassment on foreign policy and incompetent at best on the economy – though a more careful analysis shows what can only be a perverse and willful attempt to destroy our prosperity.” (more…)

Peggy Noonan of the Wall Street Journal nailed the general feeling of “huh?” I had about the State of the Union speech tonight: a speech about everything is generally a speech about nothing. It was like a huge, fluffy pastry that, once bitten into, was found to be hollow on the inside. I’m still hungry. No, I’m not kidding. I’d just eaten dinner and literally went back into the kitchen for something more. What do you call that, psychosomatic hunger?

Our last two presidents have been terrible public speakers. They both insert pauses into the strangest places and for that reason I’ve found both Bush and Obama hard to listen to. On top of the interesting speaking style, I find that Obama’s eyes don’t seem to believe in what he’s saying. I noticed this at times with Bush too, but there’s a disconnect between the content of Obama’s address and his eyes, expressions, and gestures. If he were a preacher I’d think that he didn’t believe the gospel he was preaching. (more…)
