Sarah Palin Delivers The Real State Of The Union Address

Posted by Gary P Jackson on January 26, 2010

He shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient

–Article II Section 3, United States Constitution.

On the eve of Barack Obama’s big State of the Union address, Sarah Palin brutally assesses the President and issues him a challenge:

Mr. President: Please Try, “I’m Listening, People,” Instead of “Listen Up, People!

We’ve now seen three landslide Republican victories in three states that President Obama carried in 2008. From the tea parties to the town halls to the Massachusetts Miracle, Americans have tried to make their opposition to Washington’s big government agenda loud and clear. But the President has decided that this current discontent isn’t his fault, it’s ours. He seems to think we just don’t understand what’s going on because he hasn’t had the chance – in his 411 speeches and 158 interviews last year – to adequately explain his policies to us.

Instead of sensibly telling the American people, “I’m listening,” the president is saying, “Listen up, people!” This approach is precisely the reason people are upset with Washington. Americans understand the president’s policies. We just don’t agree with them. But the president has refused to shift focus and come around to the center from the far left. Instead he and his old campaign advisers are regrouping to put a new spin on the same old agenda for 2010.

Americans aren’t looking for more political strategists. We’re looking for real leadership that listens and delivers results. The president’s former campaign adviser is now calling on supporters to “get on the same page,” but what’s on that page? He claims that the president is “resolved” to “keep fighting for” his agenda, but we’ve already seen what that government-growth agenda involves, and frankly the hype doesn’t give us much hope. Real health care reform requires a free market approach; real job creation involves incentivizing, not punishing, the job-creators; reining in the “big banks” means ending bailouts; and stopping “the undue influence of lobbyists” means not cutting deals with them behind closed doors.

Instead of real leadership, though, we’ve had broken promises and backroom deals. One of the worst: candidate Obama promised to go through the federal budget “with a scalpel,” but President Obama spent four times more than his predecessor. Want more? Candidate Obama promised that lobbyists “won’t find a job in my White House,” but President Obama gave at least a dozen former lobbyists top administration jobs. Candidate Obama promised us that we could view his health care deliberations openly and honestly on C-SPAN, but President Obama cut deals behind closed doors with industry lobbyists. Candidate Obama promised us that we would have at least five days to read all major legislation, but President Obama rushed through bills before members of Congress could even read them.

Candidate Obama promised us that his economic stimulus package would be targeted and pork-free, but President Obama signed a stimulus bill loaded with pork and goodies for corporate cronies. Candidate Obama railed against Wall Street greed, but President Obama cozied up to bankers as he extended and expanded their bailouts. Candidate Obama promised us that for “Every dollar that I’ve proposed [in spending], I’ve proposed an additional cut so that it matches.” We’re still waiting to see how President Obama will cut spending to match the trillion he’s spent.

More than anything, Americans were promised jobs, but the president’s stimulus package has failed to stem our rising unemployment rate. Maybe it was unfair to expect that an administration with so little private sector experience would understand something about job creation. How many Obama Administration officials have ever had to make a payroll or craft a business plan in the private sector? How many have had to worry about not having the resources to invest and expand? The president’s big government policies have made hiring a new employee a difficult commitment for employers to make. Ask yourself if the Obama Administration has done anything to make it easier for employers to hire. Have they given us any reassurance that the president will keep taxes low and not impose expensive new regulations?

Candidate Obama over-promised; President Obama has under-delivered. We understand you, Mr. President. We’ve listened to you again and again. We ask that you now listen to the American people.

What else really needs to be said. What we are witnessing here is a true American Statesman schooling a half-wit poseur. This is what real leadership is all about.

    POI: 1) Obama was not ready for the responsibility of President; he was trusted into it by Democratic Leaders out of the fears of men that a woman would instead be President if they could not find a male/man to win the appeal of the people over Hillary Clinton and he agrueabaly was promised massive support which brings me to my next point. 2) The questions has been asked and/or aluded to mant times, “why has the President insisted on tackling so many topics at the same time?”; reality check, he personnaly has not but “all the massive supports” have or at least, he has been trying to satisfy them in his qest for a second term. 3) Sarah Palin is the closest we have to the mindset and trustability of our country’s founders but I fear the majority of the Republican Party will do the her as the Democratic Party did to H. Clinton. God Bless Sarah Palin, and this Great Nation.

  2. Just a little bit more fuel for Sarah. Here is one of my blogs just finished today.

    Party – Party – Party at Copenhagon
    Posted by Annie on Tuesday, January 26, 2010 12:00:00 AM
    Well, if you stay in touch with FOX on a daily basis, you just might want to check in with Glenn Beck to see where your latest tax dollars disappeared. Obama and friends, including some Republicans decided to party, party, party on our money and our time. Oh, it only cost a couple of ml. so what’s money around friends. Obama said we were going to “Spread the Wealth” and little did we know he was talking about spreading it in the White House. Why should this surprise us, when Obama, Pelosi and Reid like to “Do It” behind closed doors.

    Anyway, it would seem only fair that Obama and his friends that partied should pay us back with interest. Unless I missed it, I don’t remember him asking us if it would be O.K. to go party in copenhagon. So here’s the scoop when he’s wining and dining us tomorrow night in his State of the Union speech, please remember this is the man who kicked Americans to the curb in 2009.

    The man with false promises, the one who promised jobs, real assistance for homeowners, the one who has misused our stimulus money and his dirty laundry list just keeps growing. The man that wants to have pajama parties with the terrorists and foreign countries. The man, who has the audacity to pretend he is one of us.

    This man is preparing our plate for 2010 and it’s not going to be gourmet food! He has added an outside consultant, Mr. Plouffe to join Axelrod, Pelosi, Reid and intends to derail the upcoming elections for 2010; he definitely has the money to attempt this, but the one thing Mr. Obama didn’t count on was the American people. Stand up Americans, don’t allow money to buy your citizenship – just do the right thing for our children and grandchildren. “May God Bless America”
