Deja Vu of collectivist stupidity

I admit I didn’t even bother watching the freak show, because I figured it was going to be more of the same, and I was not disappointed. From what I have read and seen now, I can tell that the man is just full of shit, talks out of both sides of his mouth, has a forked tongue, again showed why he is a narcissistic a-hole, by peddling the same trope the left has been peddling for decades: envy and jealousy. Pathetic.

The Washington Times points out that he calls for civility, then taunts. What’s new about that? I mean this has been the guy for 7 years. The Weekly Standard points out that in typical democrat fashion Obama attacks campaign donations, then proceeds to ask for them. The fact that these people that cry the loudest about the evils of donations – but specifically donations to their opponents – isn’t either new or news. These are after all the people that usually want to ban corporate money but see no problem with union money. They are also the people that denigrate and attack the rich, but get the most money from them and as the last 7 years show. do the things that make those rich people richer. The Washington Times also points out that in typical petulant child fashion, Obama managed to tell those evil republicans that just won the last electoral cycle with massive popular support that he was going to take his ball home if they didn’t let him win the game. This has been president “I won”, after all, and by now everyone should know that when they talk about working together or bipartisan efforts, democrats always mean “do what I want”.

This thing was such a snooze fest of the usual collectivist trope that even Ruth Bader Ginsburg seems to have nodded off. There were some highlights though. The Examiner points out that while Obama touted the left’s “War on Womenz” meme and again talked about the pay disparity, that the misleading and false statistics they usually use to back their cherry picking up was not repeated this time. Maybe this had something to do with that. Obama had so much good to say about our clearly broken secondary education system, but that is because, as Glen H. Reynolds has pointed out repeatedly, these institutions are one of the collectivist’s biggest donor blocks.

Fox News does a good job explaining what we saw, and that was that after this last electoral cycle’s shellacking, Obama went back to the usual democrat talking points. More class warfare – preying on the envious and the jealous works – and more taxing the productive and spending to buy votes from those that vote for a living, because that serves the country so well. Basically we got another “Give me your votes and I will give you free shit” donkey speech. Old and tired shit. If you like me just parodied what you expected an old collectivist twit would say and then watched something else, you didn’t miss much and were probably dead on.

Obama has managed to make my predictions that democrats in power would by their very actions sooner than later make sane people realize they are nothing but snake oil salesmen robbing Peter to pay Paul, while bagging a huge chunk of that change, back when everyone was talking about evil rethuglicans and Boosh, come true, and then without a shadow of doubt. I would love to rub it in people’s faces, but then again, when I look at the path of destruction these crooks have left in their wake, I don’t find much pleasure even in that.

    Probably the stupidest line was when he said people who oppose the minimum wage hike should try raising a family on the minimum wage. That’s not the purpose of the minimum wage. It’s an entry-level wage, not what you’re supposed to raise a family on. And I challenge HIM, if he thinks raising wages and benefits and all kinds of mandates doesn’t hurt businesses to try to run so much as a taco stand.

    Also, was fun hearing about how universal free daycare (which, incidentally, did *not* exist during World War 2) is not a women’s issue. This coming from the party that tries to make *everything* a women’s issue.

    My favorite part was this:

    In two weeks, I will send this Congress a budget filled with ideas that are practical, not partisan. And in the months ahead, I’ll crisscross the country making a case for those ideas.

    See, if he says his ideas are practical and not partisan, that makes it reality.

    Xetrov, don’t you understand that it’s only conservatives who are partisan? Any time you oppose anything Obama wants, you’re being partisan.

    Hot! Thumb up 8

    Any time you oppose anything Obama wants, you’re being partisan.

    I thought it was racist?

    Who says it can’t be both? And we can probably toss in “homophobe” and “misogynist” for good measure…

    The best lesson people should admit we all have learned from the last 7 years is that the ideology and policy of guy they compared Obama to when claiming he was going to bring a bright new future for America – Ronald Reagan – was one that called for smaller government as Reagan saw the government of 3 decades ago as already too bloated and broken, and this brought prosperity and growth for America. Contrast that with Obama/the left and their policies which called for bigger government. We got bitch slapped for that sort of stupidity. Trillions pissed away and things are getting worse day-by-day. Of course, collectivists will never, ever, admit the problem is big government, but will double down and tell you that the reason their big government shit failed was that it wasn’t big enough.
