Only George could spend 80% of his speech talking about the State of everyone's union except ours. (Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Israel, Africa, Columbia and a few others I can't remember)
Only George could put his foot down 1 about limiting earmarks when less then a month ago he signed off on HR 2764 which included 9,800 earmarks totaling $10 Billion dollars. (I heard there was one in there dishing out like $500,000 for fruit fly research in England or some shit)
Only George could bring up future spending of $30 billion on aids research in Africa when his country is on the verge of a recession.
Only George would be naive enough to talk about peace between Pakistan and Israel over the next year. 2
As I sit and reminisce over this speech. 3 I got to thinking about the mentality it takes to let a man like that sit 4 5 in office for 8 years. I think if any of us had a record like he does at work, we would be looking for another job. 6
I sit and think about democrats and republicans, conservatives and liberals, feces and urine. Seriously, have we become so lazy that we vote via the donkey or elephant? None of us should be any of the above. If there is a candidate that you totally agree with on all issues then I can't help but think there is something totally wrong with you. You are what I like to call a follower. May most of your views be conservative? Yes. Same goes with liberals, but to let your vote be manipulated by titles is completely ludacrous. The only reason we think in these narrow minded views is because that is how 'they' want you to think. Take for example, registering to vote. The first thing they ask you is what party you represent. Why? It's irrelevant. I represent the lesser shitbag running for office. I vote for the smaller agenda. I vote for the guy that doesn't promote fear. I vote for the guy who governs via the constitution. 7 I vote for the guy who wants to put the power back in our hands. I vote for the guy who represents the people. 8 9 I dont care if he rides in on an elephant, Donkey or a hermaphroditic midget. I guess my point is read, research, listen, and most of all, use your judgement of character when picking someone. If you aren't doing those things then stay the fuck out of the polling place or we will be responsible for wasting another 4 years, maybe 8.
And let us all congratulate George on having the lowest approval rate since Nixon during Watergate. Well done. =]
