Live Blogging of Obama’s Joint Address

with 6 comments

I am going to watch tonight with an open mind despited wanting Obama to fail if for no other reason than it will help me to respond to his lies if anybody I know falls for them.  My big hope is that he’ll detail any plans for one of America’s most vital industries – self storage.

8:02  Oh I hope Justice Ginsburg doesn’t croak walking in.  That’d be embarrassing.

8:05  This is like Battle of the Network Stars for C-Span

8:09  Where the heck is he?

8:12  I’m glad that Billy Joel doesn’t greet all his fans when he comes in to a stadium to give a concert.

8:14  Our country’s strengths are in its lavatories.  At least Obama appreciates a good flush as much as I do.

8:16  Is Joe Biden an Uncle?  He reminds me of that dopey uncle that is a really nice guy, but always telling the same jokes like asking your 8 year old brother if he has a girlfriend yet.

8:18  Wow he’s boring.  Less than an minute of speaking and Pelosi already found something better to read.

8:25  Did he really just promise us a tax cut on April 1st?  Yeah I’m going to fall for that one.

8:26  Man, I’m really missing Bush.  I used to love when he’d do his State of the Union.

8:27  Excuse me, but any economist will tell you that self-storage is the life blood of our economy.

8:30 Why does Obama insist on all these strings when he bails out the banks?  Its their money once we give it to them.

8:36  Why do we need big ideas?  What’s wrong with the ones we’ve had for the last 8 years?

8:42  We don’t need better health care.  We need people in this country who aren’t afraid to “rub some dirt on it and walk it off.”

8:45  The problem is that insurance companies have to insure sick people.

8:46  It looks like even Secretary of Education Arne Duncan was dozing.  How does Obama recommend teaching kids from the day they were born?  What about mother/child bonding?

8:48  Charter schools are great, but what about Charter Police Stations and Fire Departments.  Do you really need advanced training or accredidation to do those jobs either?

8:51  If we pass on to our children a debt that they cannot repay, can’t they just pass it on to their kids like our parents did to us? and their parents did to them?

8:52  Still nothing about self-storage

8:54  Excuse me?  Those cold war weapon systems won the cold war.  Show them some respect.

8:55  $250,000  is nothing in today’s economy.  I don’t even consider $500,000 rich really.

8:56  If George Bush could fight a war in Iraq for 7 years without having to spend a dime, Obama should applaud that and not deride it.

8:58  Oh man, it looks like that one big guy is going to eat that poor soldier

8:59  I didn’t hear this on the news, but is Obama sending his daughters to school back in the early 1960s?  I hope she the Secret Service can protect her from teasing if any of her classmates saw this.

9:00  Wow!  Pelosi’s slowing down.  Biden finally beat her out of her seat to be the first one to clap.

9:03   Forget average Americans.  People like me are far more inspiring.

9:04   Piles of rubble?  How is that different from the rest of Kansas?

9:05   We should help future lawyers, doctors, and politicians?  Won’t they have enough money to help themselves?

9:12    I can’t wait for Jindal.  He’s going to give it to us straight.

9:24   I hadn’t heard Bobby Jindal speak before.  I like his tone.  He reminds me a lot of Mr. Rogers.  I think he should have entered and put on the jacket before he spoke.

9:26   Nothing says “Americans can do anything” like the grocery store.

9:28   I had no idea New Orleans had finally recovered from Katrina.  Congradulations!

9:31   Jindal’s right.  We need to make the rest of America more like Louisiana.

9:32   Health care decisions should be made by doctors, patients, and HMO administraters.

9:32    Let’s make the schools in our country like New Orleans.

9:33    I don’t like that he’s slamming corruption.  Whatever happenned to his good friend Harry Lee?

9:37   He mentioned God a lot.  I liked Jindal’s speech better.

God bless us all, everyone!

  1. Mr. Rogers – Maybe that’s what he reminded me of. Mr. Rogers was all about self-esteem, too, if I recall correctly. Maybe he could use some puppets. yeh..I think that he’d benefit from puppets. Obama, on the other hand, was magnificent, other than the inexplicable omission regarding self-storage, of course.

  2. We need people in this country who aren’t afraid to “rub some dirt on it and walk it off.”

    That’s the truth! This nation wants to run to mommy at the first sign of starvation. It’s character building to face adversity, everyone knows that. Look at Job in the Bible. Did he cry when his home was facing foreclosure? I don’t think so. It’s the hippies. They lazed about their entire lives running up credit cards. They’ve taken advantage of the poor banking system. I’m not going to take public transportation to “save” the poor hippies. Can’t we just store the nation’s debt in self-storage units?

  4. Zen, I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed the glaring self-storage omission.

  5. The bible is a farce.

    If God is omnipotent, can he create a married bachelor?

    WHY, if we are products of God’s ‘good’ will, do we produce evil in the world? If God partakes in each any everyone of us, are there not human aspects of God? Thus negating his omnipotence and presence as a superior being?

    Nancy Pelosi had a copy of his speech, retard.

    It’s unregulated banks that led to our financial collapse, that is why we need strings attached to the public’s money.

    $250,000? $500,000 ??? Are you kidding me? My parents made apprx 120,000 in one of the highest cost of living zones in the US (Near Boston) and live a very decent lifestyle. Imagine if Jesus Christ heard you talking about money this way.

    Bush spent nearly a trillion in Iraq, not counting the lives that were lost–a figure that can and will never be able to have a $ sign affixed.

    *Administrators
    *Congratulations
    And being a former HMO administrator, I don’t think you’d fancy them making your health care decisions.

    Jindal attempted to copy Obama’s poise, and failed.

    Payce.

  6. “If God is omnipotent, can he create a married bachelor?”

    Based on my ex-wife’s cooking and cleaning skills—Yes.
