CNN's Jim Acosta: Barack Obama in #SOTU "will call on Americans to reject the politics of Donald Trump" cc @realDonaldTrump

-------------------------

But, he won't mention the sailors held in Iran.

By the way, doesn't this elevate Trump? And isn't this sort of outside of normal protocol?

Janet

Am. Thinker...now The Examiner...maybe someday CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS, CNN, .....

GUS

You know what!! Now that we know Iran keeps "Bankers" hours. We have their weak spot.

Miss Marple

Let's see, Obama tells us to reject Trump. Nikki Haley tells us to reject Trump.

Hmmmm.

What to do, what to do?

squaredance

Well decrying Trump give Trump a big boost I would think. The Dems live in a dream world; to Obama, everything is about politics. He is President of the Progressives, President of the democrats and not the President of the United States.

The Democrats are a curse on this nation. It amazes me that they rule over us and suck up our wealth in order to destroy us while they enrich themselves.

GUS

Obama is scum. This is the State of the Union address. Classless scum.

new lurker

Well, MM, I refuse to watch and will depend on your watching and relating to me what happens. As far as Nikki Haley is concerned--what a stupid thing to do--criticize Trump along with Obama?
She is terribly close w/McCain and Graham and I guess just could not resist doing that--criticizing Trump. Bad move, I think.

henry

jimmyk, per that link Haley is the "inclusive" pick. She should denounce Ryan and Turtle for typecasting her that way.

squaredance

Oh and Haley crowing out "our values" is pretty rich. I rather doubt she knows what the "values" of her state is, let alone the nation.

Here we go with "America is an idea". IT is not, it is a nation, and multi-culturalism is tearing it apart. Haley would have been a democrat 30 years ago, as would most of the GOP on the Hill.

If the GOP had any stones they would let Cruz give the rebuttal. How low we have fallen.

jimmyk on iPhone

Regardless of one's views about Trump, how is it not totally inappropriate for a Republican to criticize another Republican in the SOTU rebuttal.

Miss Marple

squaredance,

I am convinced they are a curse. What is amazing is how so many don't see it.

Rocco

Was it Kirkpatrick who said, I didn't leave the Democrat Party, the Democrat Party left me? Maybe a National Re-Register Day is in order? Like the Empty Chair Day. Peaceful revolt is in order IMO.

squaredance

The GOP needs to stop this delusion they have about "inclusion". They will not get the minority vote; they will not get the immigrant vote.

They will lose the vote of their actual constituency.

The Stupid Party indeed.

Miss Marple

jimmyk,

I will bet 10 bucks that this backfires on Haley and the other candidates. Obama, too, for that matter.

I expect Trump's numbers to increase.

The people have the bit in their teeth, and pulling out the whip won't stop them.

Jack is Back (but On Alert)!

I will believe when I hear her diss Trump and his agenda or invectives.

If she does then SC will be a Yuge winner for the Donald. They will not accept that from her.

GUS

As many of you know, I have never EVER called myself a REPUBLICAN. When I left the CANCER WARD known as the Democrat Party, I had ZERO INTENTION of joining a sick and staggered GOPeePee. If Nikki Haley mentions Trump, she is dead to me. As most of the GOPeePee is.
It's not about who gets to coach the losing team, it's about saving America before it's too late. Trump is not my guy, but he is infinitely superior to ANY COMMIECRAT.

Rocco

I don't even like Trump but underhanded backstabbing like this make my blood boil.

Janet

from the link - "...she will urge Republicans not to succumb to xenophobia, even during a period of increased fears of a domestic terrrorist attack. In the excerpts, Haley doesn't mention Trump by name."

I'm treating this last State of the Union just like my first - because I'm still just as hungry. I hope you tune in, because it's for you.

This guy is a #6$*&%##**!!!!

squaredance

This business about Trump shows just what a bubble the GOP establishment lives in, not to mention the absurdly low regard they hold for the rest of the country outside that bubble.

We are little more than a poorly constructed abstraction to them, and that abstraction is only used for their shameless election calculus and electioneering. The Nation itself, what it has been, is now, and what it could yet be is beyond them. It never enters into their thoughts at all, and only weakly seeps into their rhetoric.

In time they will be seen a traitors.
I doubt they or their descendants will ever even care about this--that is how narrow and childish they are.


And yet we somehow expect them to lead us out of this wasteland.

GUS

Janet that shit pisses me off. How has America been XENOFUCKINGPHOBIC, we are taking in MILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLIONS legally and illegally from every corner of the world. And we're XENOPHOBIC???????

Rocco

Worrying about terrorists infiltrating refugees is not xenophobic, it's common sense.

Miss Marple

squaredance,

Once, after 9/11, I was struck by how unified our country was, and glimpsed the promise of what we could be.

Cashiers asked me if I had heard anything about New York and when I thought we would strike back. Gas station attendants were listening to the radio and commented on supporting New York and the military.

We were united as a people, and despite the horrendous loss in New York, it made me feel confident of the future.

It lasted about 2 months, until HILLARY CLINTON stood in the well of the Senate waving the "Bush Knew!" headline around and demanding to know why Bush had allowed it to happen.

The democrats started the disunity at that moment, and they have been at it ever since. They are bad, bad people and should be driven from the government.

Texas Liberty Gal

I'm so thankful I can read all of your comments to keep up with what's happening during the SOTU but still be able to watch a Mission Impossible flick at the same time.

Miss Marple

By the way, that "hungry" comment from Obama gives me the creeps. Reminds me of The Screwtape Letters.

squaredance

Succmb to zenoophbia" is straight out of the marxist playbook. Note that normal, adult and commonsensical Americans has to be lectured about his "emotional state" rather than reasoned with--as if this attempt to destroy white America by means of immigration is an irrational fear.

Haley is carrying water for the Left. Why? Because she is culturally a Leftist, that is why. These are really what the RINOs are: moderate Democrats posing as Republicans

This is why the GOP is help in such contempt by its very own constituency.

It is absolutely idiotic to put Haley up there to pose as an "minority", and ?Immigrant" and a "woman". Enough of this PC nonsense.

The fate of the country hangs in the balance and they act like this is a meeting of the Yale Club in Manhattan.

Gentlejim

MM,

This guy is a #6$*&%##**!!!!

You forgot the other two 6s.

Janet

Regardless of one's views about Trump, how is it not totally inappropriate for a Republican to criticize another Republican in the SOTU rebuttal.

Exactly.

GUS

Miss Marple, As I held Gus Jr, then 6 months old, I called my older brother, who is a LIBTARD MISFIT, and I said.
"Maybe this (9/11) will bring us all together as Americans"
15 minutes after the second plane hit.
He said. "I hope not".

GUS

Anyone remember the Billy Jack parody on SNL years ago.

Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry!!!

DIVERSITY pandering.

Miss Marple

How would you feel if you were the relative of one of those sailors and the President wouldn't even MENTION them being held?

Good God.

squaredance

MM: I was a volunteer in downtown Manhattan that week. I drove by the WTC just a few minutes for the first plane hit. I saw fight jet fly over NYC. It took me 7 hours to get home.

You know, people from all over the country just showed u to help. Some just got in their cars and drove hundred of miles--they just showed up trying to help. And they send things from all over the nation. Many of these goods were stockpiled at the Javitts Convention Center on the West side of midtown. They received so much dogfood for the recuse dogs that it filled up a wall. they had to give most of it away. Amazing.

I felt great about America until the last 2 years of the Bush Administration (and no, I do not blame Bush here). I somehow figured out what was coming.

That very sense of solidarity you expressed incensed the Left. That is how evil they are. They could not bear it. They hate all the is good, true or beautiful.

PD

Is Michelle pregnant?

Yes MM - And we sold out of U.S. Flags? Remember that? They couldn't make them fast enough to keep up with the demand. <<>>

Jack is Back (but On Alert)!

Slaap Lekker, tots Morgen.

Miss Marple

Bret says this is the shortest SOU speech Obama has given.

I bet it's because they had to cut out the Iran Deal part.

Miss Marple

President is running late, Bret says, as he did last year.

Quelle suprise.

Centralcal on iPad

Nope, MM - I read days ago it would be his shortest speech.

squaredance

How can he be "running late" to a SOTU address?

What arrogance. What childish egoism.

PD

How can he be "running late" to a SOTU address?

Maybe he had to dash off some important tweets.

Miss Marple

CNN ignores the embargo (just like Iran) and has posted the transcript of tonight's speech:

http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/12/politics/state-of-the-union-2016-transcript-full-text/index.html

squaredance

"Important tweets"? Now there is an oxymoron, if ever I have heard one.

Beasts of England

There's no way he mentions Trump by name. No way.

henry

Rams return to LA.

PD

oxymoron

Well, yeah.

Gentlejim

Tweet from Iowahawk
You have to admit, Iran has pretty effective border control.

Miss Marple

Beasts,

According to the transcript, he does not.

I just got done reading it.

henry

Chargers have option to move to LA as well.

Maybe now Obama can peel away from sports center

PD

This speech is as dense a collation of cliches as I can ever remember hearing.

Threadkiller

Rams return to LA.

State of the Gridiron.

Miss Marple

PD,

Just read it, and it is absolutely the same through the whole thing.

Sounds like he has been getting an acting coach again.

squaredance

Cliches? Perhaps. Sounds like cant to me.

Mindless, vapid and sinister cant.

Again, they manage somehow to be immoral and insane at the same time.

Beasts of England

Tepid applause so far. Yes, I'm watching.

Miss Marple

Now bragging about reforming healthcare and reinventing energy sector. (Two of the most disastrous actions of his presidency.)

Also bragging about gay marriage.

It's a review of what we hate about his presidency!
HAHA!

squaredance

It reads like some Ivy League intern wrote it.

Madness. Pure Madness.

GUS

Listen Beyotches, at least his pants are creased.

Miss Marple

Here come his 4 big questions.
1. How to give everyone a fair shake and opportunity in this economy?
2. How to make technology work for us and not against us, especially with climate change?
3. How do we keep America safe and not be the world's policeman?
4. How do we make politics reflect the best of us and not the worst?

PD

1/20/17

henry

Same answer for all 4, dump Obama and restore the constitution.

squaredance

ONe day the Democrats are going to look around and wonder why on earth they so rabidly supported the gays. Except of course the Demos that cashed their checks.

This embrace of homosexuality is going to be seen as one of the strangest political acts in our history--if we ever return to reason that is.

PD

Ryan looks mildly amused, perhaps thinking to himself how amazing it is that a sitting president can be so self-delusional.

Miss Marple

I am not going to do transcribing since the text is in the link I posted above.

I will rather comment on his tone and reactions of the audience.

Again, I note that he has been practicing presentation and is injecting fake emotion into his sentences.

buccaneer morgan

Re the squirrel baker released in the link, the notion That jihadist attacks are intentional vs random events seems to miss most of these people.

henry

Perhaps they have butt massagers in those chairs PD

GUS

all four questions are answered with OPM and BIGGER GOVT.

Of course run by commies.

PD

Again, I note that he has been practicing presentation and is injecting fake emotion into his sentences.

He needs to take some lessons from Bill, of whom it's agreed no one can fake sincerity like.

PD

henry,

I admit I had not considered that.

Centralcal on iPad

His acting lessons, like his constitutional law lessons, should earn him an F.

Miss Marple

I do have to give Ryan credit for having a look of amusement on his face.

PD

His acting lessons, like his constitutional law lessons, should earn him an F.

And perhaps his constitutional law *grades*, if ever anyone could get a look at his transcripts.

squaredance

Well the answer to those four questions is, of course, to throw every Democrat off our shores.

It is unbelievable what they think our challenges are.

What is really comic is the notion that the Democrats want a "fair shake" for anyone--any one at all. This is the very last thing they wnat

They want to live a indolent aristocrats, all the while destroying the nation that subsidize their absurd and immoral existence. A "fair shake" indeed.

Miss Marple

HAHA! Did you see Valerie Jarrett grab that woman next to her to make sure she stood up to applaud?

Centralcal on iPad

I wonder if this is the first First Family to divorce after they leave the White House?

PD

"health care inflation has slowed"

Didn't he promise that the average family was going to see their premiums go *down* by $2K/year (not "increase more slowly")?

Beasts of England

Wage insurance? Holy carp.

peter

Just read the transcript. So much for the promise that this would be a new innovative SOTU.

PD

HAHA! Did you see Valerie Jarrett grab that woman next to her to make sure she stood up to applaud?

Yeah. The caption identified her as "Letter Writer."

I suppose that's a euphemism for "lobbyist."

buccaneer morgan

Those are lsd colored glasses.

maryrose

Sounds awful so far
I cannot listen to the man
Moo belle actually looks good tonight
She must have found a new man to impress
I love that Alito is a no show

PD

"avoiding paying taxes through offshore accounts"

Yeah, that's called "operating within the legal confines of the tax code written by Congress and signed by the President."

Michael (fpa Patriot4Freedom)

PD - Nice to see you here !

You're right, nobody could fake their 'fake sincerity' better than Clenis.

Centralcal on iPad

The applause is pretty anemic, but so are the folks applauding.

squaredance

And you know, I would bet that not one of those Dems there, and precious few of the GOp there to, have ever had to so much as met a payroll in a productive business or enterprise.

The people there who have actually create wealth could fit is a closet.

Yet they are telling us about how to "fix" the nation. They can bring only ruin and humiliation to us. They cannot possibly in any sense improve the Nation or our lives. They can only take and destroy.

Miss Marple

NASA couldn't get us to the moon today. They are too busy on climate change and making Muslims feel good.

I can't believe Americans elected him twice. I can understand the first time...but that he was reelected really gets me.

PD

Wow. Cancer is as good as cured now that 404 has declared we're going to cure it.

Miss Marple

Janet,

I still think it was a mix of election fraud plus ineffective campaign by Romney.

buccaneer morgan

That was Reagan who said that, but Kirkpatrick likely agreed.

Miss Marple

Hey, even if climate fraud is a hoax, we should still want to sell those bogus pieces of equipment!

"we've cut carbon pollution more than any country on earth"

You could cut it even more by stopping breathing.

Miss Marple

Biden is in charge of curing cancer.

Now he's bragging about low gas prices, like he had anything to do with it.

maryrose

It is deja vu all over again
Iran is holding 10Navy soldiers hostage and Bammy doesn't mention it?
It is like they are non persons
Just like the four heroes of Benghazi

buccaneer morgan

They interrupted agent Carter season premiere for this?

squaredance

Well, I think it is a reasonable wager that he stole it the last time.

Still, facts are facts: this is not the America that most here were born in. Decades of brainwashing in pop culture and the schools have turned out a mass of useful idiots unable to think for themselves, much less understand what America has heretofore been about.

This is a nation that valorizes sodomites and hold decent, upstanding and hard working Christian citizens as "evil". Much has changed.

Miss Marple

From someone on my Facebook feed:

Did he just say "wage insurance". Omg. What's next guaranteed lottery winners. "If you buy a lottery ticket and lose. That's not your fault, you didn't build that ticket, why does someone else get to win? Everyone deserves to win"
