Obama was the star of his own show and a legend in his own mind.
Last night’s State of Dismay speech clearly put a fine point on THAT bit of narcissism wrapped in union, butt-kissing flattery.
With nods to manufacturing, education and job training, Obama laid out yet another agenda to keep that tingle running up the union leg.
He announced that, with a stroke of his mighty pen, he has increased SOME federal contract worker’s minimum wages to $10.10 per hour.
Do you have ANY idea how many people will benefit from THAT???
In a world where the government contracts out more than $700 MILLION TAXPAYER DOLLARS for a website that doesn’t work…Neither do I but…If can get me the line item on the number of illegals “hired” to replace the toilet paper in the little nerds room…WE’LL BOTH KNOW!!!
He announced, with arrogance, that under his guidance the economy is getting better.
If by “better” he meant at a stagnant growth rate of 2.2%…
Naturally, the applause from the left side of my SOTU surround sound speakers was…
Applauding 2.2% as a growing economy is akin to giving a gold medal to whoever comes in last during the upcoming 4 man Olympics bobsled run.
The truth of the economy is that it sucks and it’s not getting any better.
Unemployment down to 6.7%???
