The Horse's...Mouth

Predictably, Barack Obama's first "State of the Union" address fudged on a few details.

He attempted to reinvent himself as a fiscal conservative (trillion dollar deficits?), he claimed strength in the face of terrorism (granting Miranda rights after a 50-minute interrogation?), he implied that the reason Healthcare legislation is stalled is because we're too dumb to understand it, he attacked the Supreme Court for upholding that pesky First Amendment, he suggested that one of our most pressing military issues is the need to repeal the current "Don't ask, don't tell" policy for gays, and he chose to interpret the election results in Massachusetts as America's way of saying "Mr. president, we love and support YOU but we're angry about banker's bonuses!"

At least a horse doesn't need a teleprompter to produce manure...



BONUS: Chris Matthews declares speech to be so good that "I forgot he was black tonight."

I think Chris Matthews statment was the most racist thing I've heard since watching a David Duke tape.

I forgot he was black, too...because I was so appalled that this man is our president to notice.

I didn't have to forget he was black because, unlike our liberal friends .. I never took the time to worry about the color of his skin

Heh. So, you're saying that road apples are somehow different regular apples?

How are we supposed to understand it when we're not supposed to read it and they (he) won't allow us to listen to them discuss it?

King Obama has spoken. He needs to be reminded about what happened to the monarchy in the French Revolution.
