How in the world President Obama mustered up the chutzpah to stand before a Joint Session of Congress and 300 million Americans via television and declare, “America is back!” during his State of the Union campaign speech is a matter best left to those who specialize in abnormal psychology.
For the rest of us, only Obama’s blind eye to truth and reality were more grotesque than his unseemly attempt to skate away into narcissistic heaven using former President George W. Bush as his means for propelling his sorry self.
Unemployment at 8.5%, housing market in complete ruins, millions of middle-class Americans facing foreclosure and or bankruptcy, federal debt level in excess of $15 trillion and rising, uncontrolled spending, credit rating downgraded with more degradation likely, and 70-80 percent of Americans in a snit over the fact that America is headed in the “wrong direction.”
And THAT translates into America being “back,” sir?
Of course the president is going to emphasize whatever morsel of good news he can conjure up especially in an election year.
But, really now, “America is back?”
Does anyone other than Michelle’s 35 servants believe that?
By the way, Mr. President, how about the “Fast and Furious” scandal which has engulfed your administration, particularly Attorney General Eric Holder, in disgrace, crime, cover-up, and corruption?
There was a time in our history when shipping weapons to terrorists in a foreign nation against the will of Congress and the law was considered an impeachable offense.
Or have you and your Democrat partners-in-crime not heard of the Iran-Contra snafu during Ronald Reagan’s second term?
Unlike your “Fast and Furious” attempt to circumvent the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, Iran-Contra did NOT lead to the death of any border patrol agent or other American.
America is back, sir?
