Chris Johnson, a non-Catholic who has taken up the cudgels so many times for the Church that I have named him Defender of the Faith, watched the State of the Union speech last night so you didn’t have to:
Got started a little earlier than I thought I would.
2:34 I just got back from Freddie’s Market to lay in booze, er, supplies for tonight’s festivities. The more I think about it, the more I believe that Stephen Green may have had the right idea all along.
7:55 Gettin’ on toward that time so I’d better get the first vodka thing going.
8:02 – Let’s rock and roll.
8:08 – Himself is on the way in.
8:13 “Our combat mission in Afghanistan is over” Really?
8:15 “Growing economy?” I don’t have a job, dumbass.
8:18 “We are a strong, tight-knit family who has made it through some very hard times.” Of course that’s never happened before.
8:20 “America is number one in oil and gas.” No thanks to your opposition to Keystone or fracking, thank you very much.
8:22 Dude’s just making crap up now.
8:23 My way or the highway, bitches.
8:25 Rebecca just isn’t asking for a handout. Except that she wants “affordable child care” at someone else’s expense.
8:27 You’re not just going to be paying for Sandra Fluke’s birth control. You’re going to be paying for Sandra Fluke’s birth control AND paid her affordable maternity leave.
8:29 “That’s why this Congress needs to make sure that women are paid the same as men.” Since they basically are right now.
8:30 Strengthen unions. Saw that one coming a million light years away.
8:32 Free community college. ‘Kay. Who’s paying for it, O?
8:34 Apprenticeships? You mean like going back to reading law again? Produced Lincoln, after all.
8:36 This is starting to sound something like a Nuremberg rally.
8:37 “Let’s set our sights higher than a pipeline.” See you, Keystone. And get used to paying $3.00 or more a gallon again.
8:40 “And where we too often run under the rocks is how we pay for all this” Here we go.
8:43 The top one percent. Saw that one coming a light year away.
8:44 He’s on to foreign policy now.
8:45 Barry thinks his “foreign policy” is making a difference.
8:47 America’s foreign policy has been forceful? Obama wants a Congressional resolution authorizing force against the “Islamic” State.
8:52 G0 ahead and take “credit” for Cuba, O. “Stands up for democratic values and extends the hands of friendship to Cuba?” Care to reconcile those two mutually-exclusive ideas, Barry?
8:53 Computer hackers now? This have something to do with the IRS scandal?
8:55 Climate change. Last year was the warmest year of climate change of record, Barry. Do you have any idea how old the universe is, dimwit?
8:56 Barry wants to go Luddite.
8:57 Dude had to work duh gaze in there. Pretty much de riguer these days.
8:58 O wants to close Gitmo.
9:00 “I still believe that we are one people.” Glad you do.
Sorry that things stopped early. Some kind of technical problem; I’m not quite sure what happened there. I’ll keep comments open a little while longer.
Go here to read the comments. After six years I skipped the speech. By this time I know what he is going to say and how he will say it, and I have better things to do with my time, so I appreciate Chris standing watch in case a novel idea did escape from Obama.
