The State of the Union? At least we are out of Iraq (sorta)

The State of the Union? At least we are out of Iraq (sorta)

 I got one paragraph into the State of the Union address last Wednesday before I literally laughed out loud and looked to the DVR and found Mondays episode of “The Bachelor”. I figured if I’m going to watch some superficial, shallow empty suit lie to me about something; I prefer it be about how much in awe he is over some 20-year old bimbo’s  on national TV looking for true love rather then the (sorry) state of our beloved nation.

 

The President was at it again, trying to appeal to every segment of the population without offending none all the while detailing ideas that basically amounted to nothing more then, well… nothing. But for our commander in Chief to lead off with Iraq, sums up his tenure at President. Uninspiring.

For a President who promised and represented so much, especially in the name of transparency; his failures have been catastrophic. Iraq is no exception. This is what Mr Obama said from the very top.

Last month, I went to Andrews Air Force Base and welcomed home some of our last troops to serve in Iraq. Together, we offered a final, proud salute to the colors under which more than a million of our fellow citizens fought – and several thousand gave their lives.

We gather tonight knowing that this generation of heroes has made the United States safer and more respected around the world. For the first time in nine years, there are no Americans fighting in Iraq.

It made me remember an article I read a month ago at Salon.com. Its surprising the President didnt mention the private contractors still stationed over there, all 3,000 – 5,000 of them. Names like Triple Canopy, Global, SOC Inc and Academi (formerly known as Blackwater) are private American security contractors that do not have to be held to the US Military rules of engagement, yet there they still remain just as the giant embassy and its 15,000 people to run it. How about those “fellow citizens”? But hey, we are out of there… I guess.

  • The Bachelor? Really? OK, the girls must be very hot.

    You caught the fact that we actually left behind a veritable army to defend the Versailles + sized embassy and Blackwater – now apparently a in it’s third incarnation,have been left behind to defend America’s honor. (Blackwater’s ex ceo, Erik Prince had to leave the US to avoid prosecution.)

    I rued the fact that I was actually watching him and those first statement’s with no mention of the ‘army’ left behind – Can you say Germany, Japan, South Korea? As I suspected obfuscation and misdirection poured out from there. He didn’t even bother to change the mortgage relief programs from the same models he spoke of 3 years ago in the same speech. And the majority of the people once again believed what this Charlatan spewed forth. – The Presidents Belated Mortgage Fraud/Crisis Investigation – http://dont-tread-on.me/?p=13019

    Well, the bachelor was just for the sake of summing up the importance of said speech: worthless. Like the mentioned TV show i wouldnt be caught dead watching. As far as investigating fraud in the financial sector, it wouldnt make much sense for an administration so tightly-interwoven with Wall Street. It amazes me that those on the hypothetical left (as if there was such a thing as right and left anymore) never called out this man for having this message of transparency and justice then having the most crony capitalistic administration i have ever seen. Either the MSM is asleep or they are protecting their own asses. I hate to say its the ladder but thats my inclination anyway.
