Big Red Car here. Hey, on Earth as it is in Texas, y’all.
Celebrate with me? Last State of the Union speech by President Barack H. Obama — that’s not something to celebrate?
OK, kind of mean. Sorry.
So what is the State of Our Union? SOTU?
I feel compelled to comment on the President’s speech only because it IS a milestone — his last such speech.
President Obama can give a damn good speech. He usually has thought provoking content and as a craftsman throwing words at you, he is the best.
I remember not a single word this morning. It was all a faux victory lap around a world afire and it was all the kind of nonsense that never, ever turns into action. But then that is what we’ve come to expect, no?
I am fond of saying that the world is filled with a lot of bullshitters and very few actual “doers.”
The President is the top bullshitter. Sorry. He is NOT a doer.
[Pro tip: Don’t start a speech demonizing anyone you intend to ask to cooperate with you at the end of your speech. Small thing but big thing, no?]
The Big Red Car is left to wonder — What freakin’ country was he talking about? Cause it wasn’t ours.
So, what’s next?
We have one more Presidential NCAA March Madness pick extravaganza and then we are really done with “that guy.” Hot dog!
