Well, I tried. I tried to watch the State of the Union speech, but I couldn’t do it. I even turned back to it a few times – heard about the 1 percenters who need to give back to the middle class. I don’t know how that will work? Answer – it won’t and it isn’t supposed to.
I also heard his challenge to try to support a family on just $15,000 per year and those who think it’s possible should go ahead and try. That’s bogus and he knows it, for far less than 1% of workers support a family on minimum wage.
Okay, that’s enough of the buffoon in chief. We all knew what he was going to say before he said it anyway.
As for the Republican response, I can describe the performance of Iowa Senator Joni Ernst as… well… what’s the word? It’s not electric. It’s not inspiring, great or motivating. It’s more like… wooden, as if Geppetto had just fashioned her.
It was a major disappointment with its typical Republican “repeal and replace” Obamacare message. But considering who put her up – the establishment Republicans – that’s to be expected.
Then it was on to the Tea Party Express rebuttal of “The One’s” speech. Now don’t get me wrong – I’m glad Congressman Curtis Clawson was both humbled and grateful to give the Tea Party Express response, but he like Ernst lacked any passion. I mean zero appeal.
