State of the Union — What You Won’t Hear Tonight

The President will give his third State of the Union address tonight at 9pm EST.  It will be filled with poll-tested decisive-sounding promises of new entitlements, he may take a shot at his prospective opponents, he’ll definitely hit Congress and remind us of his order to kill Osama Bin Laden, and he’ll lie about his record or the behavior of his opponents, setting up numerous straw men along the way.

What you won’t hear is the state of the union.  In the Obama Nation, gas has risen 83%, the price of beef is up 24% and the price of one of life’s staples, bacon, has risen 22%.  Ice cream, bread and eggs are up too.

The national debt is up to $15.2 trillion from about 10 trillion in 2008 and the President wants it to hit over $16 trillion before his prospective first term is over!  The Democrat-controlled Senate hasn’t passed a budget in 1000 days.  The number of employed has actually shrunk since Obama took office.

The Obama’s gave about 5% to charity in 2005-6.  The Romney’s gave $4 million last year, or about 19% of their income.  Ah, but Romney is part of that greedy 1% Obama will beat up this evening.

It’ll be the President’s job tonight to make it seem like his tenure hasn’t existed until this very night.  It’s on us to make sure he doesn’t get away with it.
