Listening to the State of the Union while driving home, without the benefit of seeing the President give his speech, allowed me to hear his words and digest them without television bias. The thing that I came away with is that nothing he said had a kernel of truth in it, as it is redundant with past promises that have not been kept.

President Obama reminds me of the boy who called wolf and America is onto him,  his words mean nothing.  He spoke of reaching out to the Republicans in various areas of policy and legislation, and yet, where was this in the past two years? Where was it when the Republicans had ideas to offer in the health care debate? They were willing to play, but the Democrats forced them to sit on the sideline. Why now is he willing to work with the Republicans?

America has called Obama’s bluff, and like a bully who has been caught in the school yard and reprimanded, he is now trying to win the trust of the people by tickling their ears with niceties. Our President is a good speech maker and he promises pie in the sky; but the American people are hungry, for he has not delivered on anything that he has said that he will do.

This year is a crucial time in America history to radically do what must be done.  Like a cancer, and this debt and deficit are just that; must be cut out, radiated, and chemo-ed. These treatments hurt, but they save lives.  America’s life needs to be surgically saved and tough cuts must be made.

Are we the people willing to go through the treatment that will revive the health of this country?  Let us hold our representatives to their word and get the job done this time!

  1. Nothing he says has a kernel of truth? Get real. Go ahead and blast the policies with which you disagree, but you’re not looking very hard if you really believe he hasn’t delivered anything he said he would. I happen to be quite happy with a great deal of what he’s accomplished. About half the country happens to agree with me.

    1. You’re right Matt, Mary and I believe the country would be better off if he didn’t deliver on anything he promised in the last two years.

      I’m reading your comment in my email so I don’t have Mary’s post in front of me, but I believe she was referring to his talk of working with Republicans. That didn’t happen in the last two years. Part of the blame lies with his administration, and much of it also goes to former Speaker Pelosi.

      1. I’ve got no problem with our policy disagreements. It’s a big world and there are lots of worthy opinions. I just get tired of commentary like Mary’s in this case, which essentially calls Obama a liar. Not very productive, in my humble opinion.

      2. @Matt, what would a better term be for anyone who promises the world and delivers net zero? If I, for instance, told my children that they would receive some treat from me over and over, and yet I never acted upon it, then I would be a liar and my kids would lose faith in me. Any leader, on either side of the aisle, whose actions do not match one’s speech, will lose the public’s trust by virtue of not being true to their word.
        You are right that he delivered on healthcare, but to the chagrin of most Americans, who repeatedly contacted Washington concerning the passage of an over reaching mandate. And Shane is right that it was the Administration and Pelosi who must bear the blame for not working with the Republicans.

  3. So are you really saying that this president is any different then any of our other presidents? Do you really believe he lies about every thing he says?

    1. No one lies about everything. Obama’s promises are not backed up with action, therefore, being aware that what he says is not what he does is important for the American people to realize. Anyone, from any party, who says one thing and does another needs to be held accountable.
