When President Obama gave his state of the union speech last night he was continuing a tradition that goes back a long time.
It use to be that when The President of the United States addressed Americans about the country’s current conditions, he was treated with respect. By both parties.
People actually listened to what the president had to say. Not anymore.
Before President Obama even gave his speech GOP presidential candidate, and clueless idiot, Newt Gingrich slammed it! He didn’t even bother listening to the speech.
But why shouldn’t he? The rest of his conservative buddies attacked the president like a pack of rabid Rottweiler's.
Obama was accused of being a “Class Warrior” (what’s that exactly?) and of dividing Americans because he talked about the “haves” and “have nots.”
According to Republicans we have a country with “haves” and “soon to be haves.” In other words, they don’t believe common Americans are suffering in this economy and that if we just get rid of government we’ll all be happy, healthy, and wise. Not!
The Republicans used this state of the union address as a springboard for a whole new pile of shit in their desperate campaign to oust him.
Here’s the state of the union: there is no union anymore!
