SOTU Response: Ryan Knocks It Out Of The Park

Published by at 10:35 pm under All General Discussions

I am not going to go into the details of his rebuttal, but Paul Ryan hit the nail on the head. He connected to the issues and concerns of the 2010 voters. All about the deficits and business as usual with runaway spending and criminal malfeasance. Excellent.

I would wager Ryan gets higher ratings for his speech than Obama does. It will be historic, when the rebuttal resonates more with the people than the SOTU itself.

Will keep this one and its ‘to do’ list of solutions. We now have a road map!

    I totally agree. It’s too bad Michele Bachmann stole some of Ryan’s thunder. He spoke directly to my concerns. The bottom line is government is not the answer to our problems, they are the problem. I love how he recited portions of the preamble to the Constitution. I think most people expect the government to do too much. Let’s get back to the core principles that our founders set forth and give the power back to the people.

    Did you see Hannity last night when Frank Luntz was asking a group of people in Atlanta? The tide is slowly changing. 7 of 13 would vote for Obama today. And most of them did not like Obama’s SOTU speech.

    I see that Lee Stranahan finally writes at one of the BIGs about Pigford…asking why are we so quiet about Pigford.

    I am not happy with the way Pigford is handled but after Obama and the Dems handled ObamaCare in spite of our objections and protests, why bother?

    Last night, Obama made it clear that he is not listening to us, doesn’t believe in the founding principles, misreading us. And he needs to let go of his far left base but he needs that vote.

    Harry Reid isn’t much better either.

    The only course (revolt?) is to vote Obama out in 2012. It’s too bad that his polling numbers are going back up. Professor Kengor thinks Obama will get re-elected. I don’t think so and I hope not!

    Obama has nothing more to say folks. He gave us his best on Inauguration day, and it’s over. He is not particularly interested in the United States of America. He missed history lessons, or if he was there some American hater was the teacher. “Sputnik” lets do it again. Are you kidding? The Russians ate our lunch, we want to go back to those times.

    All the words that this guy knows……..he has already put them together, patted himelf on the back……….and now he’s finished. He has said all he knows and it’s not much. He can’t govern because he has no clue of who we are, what we are, what motivates human beings. This guy knows a bunch of left wing theories, they have never worked and that’s all folks. My bet is that Hillary did not know the real truth of “just words”.

    And China is getting an edge over us in more ways than just financing our debts. Hint: new plane.

    Am missing a poster from CA. forgot his handle name. Trent something?

    From Instapundit
    See, the thing about Sputnik was that it was really scary, because it meant the country was in danger — if the Russians could put a satellite overhead, they could put an H-bomb on New York in 20 minutes. That’s why we responded with a big change in how we did business.

    Yea we started NASA….Obama just gutted it. Does the man read his own stuff………does he pause and think do I really want to say this stuff. I mean, it is really crazy.

  6. WWS says:

    Don’t forget, under Obama NASA’s prime directives now are to make Moslems feel empowered and to promote global warming theories.

    technology? exploration? Obama’s not interested in that.

    I found this at “Kos”, left of center types were talking to Axelrod after the State of the Union by the President.

    He is commenting on the results of the election and if they were going to do a Bill Clinton after he got beaten up. He said, “I guarantee you — I give you, as God is my witness, my word that we have not had a repositioning discussion here. We have not talked about let’s move three degrees to the right. That’s not the way we view this.

    Those were easily the most vehement words we saw from Axelrod, commented Kos.

  8. ivehadit says:

    Lurk, is that Trent Telenko or something like that? He/she always had great commentary and what seemed like inside information.

    Trent, are you out there? 🙂

  9. WWS says:

    that’s funny stuff from Kos – I wonder if they are brain dead enough to buy it? Suckers.

    Note that Axelrod didn’t actually deny it; he just said “we have not had a repositioning discussion”. That’s how lawyers and political consultants talk. Of course they’re moving to the right; but as long as they don’t print memos inviting everyone to the official “repositioning discussion” then Axelrod will feel completely free to go on spinning about how they haven’t talked about it.

    And the other funny part is Axelrod claiming as a witness someone who he views as a complete myth. Ha, ha, ha.

    Just a bit off topic but I just had one of those “I told you so” moments:


    Multimillion dollar fence thwarted by a homemade catapult that probably cost all of $100 to build.

    US military happened to catch them on surveillance (UAV?).

    now you’re making me visualize Pedro with a little parachute.

    A Presidency to Nowhere

    No president before Barack Obama has been so right and so wrong. When in his State of the Union speech Mr. Obama said, “This is our generation’s Sputnik moment,” citing the emergence of global competition from the likes of China and India, he was right. Minutes later he proposed to cover the country with high-speed rail and companies making solar shingles. High-speed rail and solar shingles? If that’s the president’s idea of meeting our Sputnik moment, then Houston, we have a problem.

    Re: Catapult

    I didn’t read where 16 to 20 landscapers/maids were shot over the fence …
