Suggestions for the GOP in the SOTU
Vanity

Posted on 01/28/2014 12:18:22 PM PST by budj

Various radio commentators have suggested what the GOP should do tonight to liven up the SOTU.

How about we help them with some more. Here's mine:

I remember Harry Chapin's concerts; he'd sing "30,000 lbs of Bananas" and end with the audience shouting "It sucks, Harry!"

Maybe the GOP could just shout "It sucks, Barry!"

Obama’s speeches should come with a laugh track.

And do not watch it on TV or listen to it on the radio. A ratings disaster would be a great message to send. After all, outside of bat$%&! crazy moonbats, who is listening to this guy anymore? I know some brave FReepers will endure for the rest of us by tuning in to tell the rest of us if anything interesting happens. I'll follow that thread instead of actually viewing/listening.

I wish I could paste a video of the Mandela funeral
translator into the lower right of the screen during
his speech.

Got to get a “He’s Lieing” sticker for the bottom.

Someone suggested a Nazi salute and a hearty “sieg heil” on another thread.

Either that or dub the SOTU over a video of Obama’s
Mandela speech with the translator, be the same thing.

this is going to be “you lie” part two.

The word lie should be a GOP talking point.

The GOP needs to come out swinging with a political no prisoners. The public wants red meat. No surrender.

Don’t have to worry about that with me. Since that loquacious gasbag became POTUS, I have only listened to him just once: On the night he announced that we supposedly got Bin-Laden. It is the only time I was ever interested in anything he has ever had to say. He’s a big phony who just reads whatever is in the teleprompter.

Willie Robertson (Duck Dynasty) will be at the SOTU. A guest of Congressman Vitter.

I heard he was bringing handmade duck calls for all the conservatives. Each and every time Nobama utters some BS or reads another lie from TOTUS...

“QUACK QUACK QUAAAAACKKK!!!”

Invite DeSouza to attend. Invite the surviving relatives of the Benghazi debacle. Invite a regular Joe that lost his health insurance because of 0-care.
Invite anyone harmed by the dictator.

Those who do watch will also have to endure the sight of captive Republicans sitting there being trashed and humiliated. And sometimes even appalauding their tormentor.

Go, but laugh out loud, long and hard, at every ridiculous thing that’s said (there will be plenty of wacky material to work with).

An excellent suggestion but one that Republicans are too obtuse to appreciate.

Hahaha. I won’t watch but will comment here.
Would like to see Sarah’s response though.
Warm enough?
My niece and her husband just went up to Chi town
to move some of her fathers household goods back
Here to Ga. we tried to tell her about conditions
up north as we used to live there but she knows
everything so I hope they don’t have trouble.

If POTUS chooses to present the SOTU in person to congress, as opposed to a written report, why should congress provide him the benfit of any consideration of reverence?

POTUS could just send a written SOTU and avoid the theatrics. If POTUS chooses the theatrics, then POTUS should suffer the considerations.

The current “reverence” and “polite consideration” of the POTUS in the SOTU smacks of imperialism and...REALLY...needs to be eliminated.

I believe I read that the father of one of the Seals

decorum will probably out.

The GOP is in a very target rich environment. Obama has given them a gold mine of talking points replete with lies, contradictions, and pathetic failures. The problem is the GOP discards all the nuggets and keeps the tailings.

-13 this morning; it’s warmed UP to ZERO now. Heat Wave!

Most of our state has been closed for the past two days; I’m self-entertaining and am enjoying a few days away from work.

No water this morning, but LUCKILY the pressure tank just needed to be re-booted; it must’ve been having problems with the cold. That was VERY LUCKY! :)

My chickens are doing fine; no frost bite on their combs or feet. They have a coop, so they’re all snuggled up for warms. The cat actually slept with the dogs last night - she’s not done that in all of her 14 years, LOL!

I’m ready for SPRING! :)

Congressman Joe Wilson should read the speech in advance, note each of the really obvious lies in it (there’s bound to be dozens), and at each one, stand up and shout “You still lie, sir!”

And each time he does it, the entire Republican contingent should stand, clap, and yell “Hear, Hear!”

Then let’s see if he gets censured this time around, or is considered the equivalent of the child who said the Emperor was wearing no clothes.

During the aftermath, Wilson and the rest of the GOP will be able to dissect each and every lie as they’re interviewed over and over by a seething mainstream press corpse (spelling error intended.)

I’ve got some chickens but they don’t have a coop.
They used to roost in the rafters of my blacksmith
shop but I closed it in for the winter so now they
just roost in the tree next to my house.

If the R side had any stones they would A turn their back on the traitor as he enters and b- If Dear Leader starts his prevarications and accusations (especially when he hints I will do things with or without you) walk out en masse. But knowing who the players are will never happen
