Disingenuous Distractions

From CNN:

More than three-fourths of those who watched the speech reacted positively, according to a CNN poll, though the reaction was more muted than in previous years.

Am I a seventeen year old cynic, or are Americans really that stupid?

Both, I suspect.

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Faced with a widely unpopular war in Iraq and a Democratic Congress, President Bush in his State of the Union address urged lawmakers to work with him to “achieve big things for the American people.”

“Our citizens don’t much care which side of the aisle we sit on, as long as we are willing to cross that aisle when there is work to be done,” Bush said Tuesday night.

In his 50-minute address, the president appealed for patience with his recently announced plan to increase troop levels in Iraq, despite opposition from many Democrats and some members of his own party.

Bush also put forth a wish list to extend health insurance coverage, reduce gasoline consumption by 20 percent over 10 years and limit greenhouse gas emissions.

Sorry, don’t buy it. Where was all this talk about co-operation when you had a Congress on its knees blowing you with abandon, Mr. President? Why do you suddenly act concerned over the health insurance crisis now? Since when do you give a flying crap about the environment?

Could it be that you might be trying to throw America a bone so we won’t fight your ridiculous escalation of your illegal war? Are you afraid that the troop increase might swing the balance such that Democrats decide you really do need to be in jail?

Just tactics of distraction. “iwantmoretroopsinmywar…..HEY LOOKIE OVER HERE, HEALTH CARE!!!”

I don’t buy your bullshit. I hope that most people aren’t dumb enough to buy it, either.

Read my lips, Mr. President:

No more troops for your illegal war in Iraq.

    Don’t take it so seriously, Janie. It’s the friggin’ State of the Union Address, never was there a sillier, more inane, bag of bluster ever institutionalized.

    Nobody has ever mistaken this address as serious (with the exception of FoxNews, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and PBS). Not one real plan is ever introduced, not one significant word is ever uttered. A giant waste of the countryy’s time. Unless you’re into watching analysts make themselves look silly.

    You’re probably right, as usual blipey.

    Sometimes that guy just pisses me off. And what pisses me off more is that people just sit there like sheep hanging on that idiot’s every word.

    Kisses to you for lowering my blood pressure, though.

  3. Yeah, about the only thing that you can bet on is if it is mentioned in the SOTU, it won’t get any real consideration.

    Did they just copy and paste last years part about the environment? You know except for using the phrase “global climate change.”

    C’mon! You’re talking about the people who voted Chris Daughtry off American Idol last year in favor of Eliot, Katherine, and Taylor Hicks. And then voted Taylor as the winner! Americans can’t get much stupider than that.

  5. JanieBelle says:

    Ack. I don’t watch that show, so I can’t really relate.

    I take it Taylor sucked compared to Chris?

  6. Amanda says:

    LOL. That’s the polite way to put it.

    You’re probably right, as usual blipey.

    Thankfully I’ve got at least one person snowed.

  8. max says:

    It is CNN. You expect CNN to say U.S. citizens hate Bush and want him out?

  9. JanieBelle says:

    I know. I really shouldn’t let it bug me so.

    Along these lines, did anyone pay attention to the Fox News ticker question on the efficacy of the speech?

    It came in with an 85% fabulous rating and 10% hate it. Does anyone else think this may have been a function of what media outlet the poll was taken on? I’d be interested to see the results of the same question asked to NPR listeners.

    I do so love polls.

  11. JanieBelle says:

    Me too.

    As far as I’m concerned, Faux News anchors might as well skip the suits and just put on cheerleader uniforms that say “Bush Whore High” on the front.

  12. max says:

    Fox News is so aberrant, people in Europe who see it think it is satire and have to be convinced no, that is an allegedly real news program.

  13. JanieBelle says:

    Sometimes it really is hard to tell the difference between parody and the real deal with those nutters.
