The State of the Union Follies will focus on more of the same. More spending on education, infrastructure and Green Energy

I read that as more credit from the Bank of China to give more 0bama bundlers more lard from the treasury.

Same Shiite Different Day

1) Invest in schools
2) Invest in roads
3) Invest in green technology

He’ll probably talk about and then try to mimic the recent economic successes of North Korea.

Easiest way to do this is for all the Democrats and RINO centrists to resign.

It would only hurt gun sales and oil prices would drop, but they could handle it.

His Royal Majesty The King will inform his peons and serfs of The State Of The 57 states of his realm.

I bet he promises to focus like a laser on employment and give us some of those “shovel ready” jobs he couldn’t find last term.

Dust off “Economic Growth Plan #5” for the rubes. They bought the first four hook, line and sinker.

“If everybody paid their fair share...”
“We can’t cut our way to prosperity...”
“There are some who say...” (ridiculous straw man argument here)

Just one problem. There’s no Democrat policy that will lead to faster growth.

I don’t know about this year, but I can guess the text from the 2015 speech if America votes demonrat next year.

“For the good of our country, we must take control of all retirement accounts”. Democrats do not rise to applaud (not because they don’t agree, but because they instantly wet themselves with glee).

Besides the obvious spend, spend, spend....he will put some dangerous ‘feelers’ out there:

To protect people from the evil banks, he will announce a committee to provide ‘oversight’ for 401k accounts.

He will push to tax more of the income (and wealth) of people who flee this nation’s tax rates.

He will demand funding to implement Obamacare [btw the big lie that Obamacare would cost nothing - very, very easy for Obama to make. From here till the end of time, rats will demand more taxes for Obamacare, and tell the sheeple that we need death panels, because the rich don’t want to pay more.]

Of course there will be somebody present with a connection to Sandy Hook. I bet they had somebody from Aurora all lined up...and that person got bumped, since we now have a ‘better’ tragedy. He will use this person as a prop to push gun control....and then the camera will pan to Gabby Giffords.

Then he will establish his patriotism by demanding that the evil GOP stop sequestration, by raising taxes.

The speech will intentionally be givenb at a 5th grade level, and he will directly be speaking to the sheeple’s inner 5th grader. Sally has more stuff and she needs to share it. Period.

And if some Boy Scouts bring in the colors, some idiot will jeer them for not accepting NAMBLA’s principles...yet.

1) Invest in schools

Everyone gets a certificate of participation.

2) Invest in roads

Without gas to drive on them.

3) Invest in green technology

Launder greenbacks to the Bolshies.

4) Punish everyone who works hard and is successful.

Have no fear unions.

For every "fair share", "fair shot" and "play by the rules" a Republican should walk out. It will be a retread of tired cliches without meaning, signifying nothing.

GDP contracted .1% in the 4th quarter last year. That is just the start.

Government spending does not raise the GDP one bit. nobama can continue spending money he doesn’t have but it’s a dead end street.

What was that Margaret Thatcher said? “Socialism works great until you run out of other people’s money.” IMHO, that day is fast approaching.

In the annual presidential address to Congress, Obama plans to show he has not lost sight of the economic woes of middle-class Americans

Chairman Zero has never HAD sight of the economic woes of middle-class Americans. More propaganda from al-Reuters.
