NAW's 2011 Pregame SOTU Analysis: It's why you come here!
My analysis of the SOTU address, written on Tuesday afternoon, is simple: Momma ain't buh-b'lieving it. Whatever "it" is that comes from Barry's mouth.
This is based not on hate, but on his character and his track record of actions and reactions to the American people thus far in his reign. If it smells like dog chit, looks like dog chit, well, we all know the rest of that.
I just read a Drudge headline that was in RED: Makeover: Obama to propose budget freeze and ban earmark tonight
Well well well, I'm sure the left would point to that and #1 get a bit pissy and #2 use it as proof as Barry's change of ♥. Awwww, so soft, so fuzzy, so manipulative.... Don't you wonder why he didn't propose these things already?! Like a year or two ago?
Fact is, we all know who is responsible for his "change": you and me and every other voice that is rising in opposition to stop the mayhem in Washington. Without the punch to their agenda libbies received at the polls in November or our sustained push-back against this monster of a gaining government, Barry would stand before us tonight and keep on digging our grave. He'd even lecture us on our responsibility to follow.
It's only because we, as in WE THE PEOPLE, are not taking it anymore and the man wants to be re-elected, that he is making "nice" to our face, "oh hey, here's a budget freeze and NO MORE EARMARKS, gosh darn it." yet proceeding with his agenda as soon as he walks away from the teleprompter.
He ain't fooling me, and I am sure as hell, he ain't fooling you.
His back is against a wall of Americans determined to make him a one-termer, and he knows it.
His turnaround for the SOTU is transparent. But hey, let him say the words, let him make his promises. Let him help us write the case against reelection. Do your best, dude. For once, we're rooting for you.
GO BARRY GO!
Since this is a pregame analysis, there's room for error and big surprises I never saw coming, but for the most part, I'm betting I got pretty darn close.
If I'm not suffering from a hangover, from my SOTU drinking game*, I'll link some post-game analysis from others.
*2011 SOTU Drinking Game: Every time Bar tries to hijack Reagan's legacy (oh, how he wishes he could own that), or uses imagery that indicates he's swinging right, or lectures us on unkindness towards one another: DRANK!

Oh Katie, you so MSM...
