My Live Reactions to President Obama's State of the Union Message
By Joe Bodolai © 2010, All rights reserved
As I watch the President make his State of the Union address, these thoughts come to mind
Biden is nodding like a bobblehead. Now 50% off at the White House Store!
Doubling exports over the next five years will create two million new jobs. Where? Merry Christmas, India. All we can export are weapons. And NBA logo jerseys.
The bank bailout is like “root canal”? I’d rather have root canal!
“We might face a second Depression.” Oh, you mean like the one yesterday?
On the war in Afghanistan: “There will be difficult days ahead. But I am confident we will succeed.” Oh I’ll bet we’ll do as well as Alexander the Great or the Soviet Union.
The threat of nuclear weapons is “perhaps the greatest danger to the American people.” A reference to Iran, obviously. What about Israel? They actually have nuclear weapons and are not signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. By U.S. law, we are therefore not allowed to provide weapons to that country. Yet, those white phosphorus bombs in Gaza are “proudly made in the USA.”
I think we’re living in an American Twilight Zone.
