Open thread: Still three more of these to go, America, if you can believe it

posted at 8:01 pm on January 28, 2014 by Allahpundit

I really can’t believe it. Even Obama, I’ve always assumed, doesn’t want to do the SOTU but feels bound by a basic rule of politics in the age of mass media, that when television offers you a free platform to reach many millions of voters, you’ve got to take it. There’s no way to redeem a laborious 45-minute run-through of your party’s current policy wishlist, so don’t sweat it when it lands with a thud. Just show up, if only to show your party that you’re still trying.

And yet, here’s a line from his former speechwriter about the SOTU-writing process. What are we to make of this?

President Obama always wanted the speech to “sing,” as he put it

O does realize that not only have all five of his previous SOTUs been essentially the same, they’re also essentially the same as every SOTU delivered over the past 30 years, no? Watch the two clips below, or revisit Matt Welch’s guide on how to write an SOTU in 10 minutes using the same platitudinal flotsam that’s been salvaged and recycled by every president since JFK. Trying to make this speech sing is like trying to make a rendition of “Happy Birthday” sound transcendent. If you’re approaching it that way, you’re missing the point.

The long march begins at 9 p.m. ET but there’s usually some red-carpet-type stupidity happening half an hour or so before that on the cable news nets or C-SPAN. One of the “Duck Dynasty” guys will be there; so will pro basketball player/notable gay man Jason Collins; so will that kid who claimed to be one of the first people in America to sign up for ObamaCare before everyone realized that he hadn’t really signed up. In a few years, as the see-and-be-seen value of this spectacle completely overwhelms its news-making value, members of Congress will start inviting A-list celebrities for fun and the White House Correspondents Dinner-ization of the event will be complete. Which, actually, would be fitting: As Kevin Williamson writes, the SOTU long ago devolved into a dreary imitation of monarchy. Might as well have all the aristocrats there to watch.

The annual State of the Union pageant is a hideous, dispiriting, ugly, monotonous, un-American, un-republican, anti-democratic, dreary, backward, monarchical, retch-inducing, depressing, shameful, crypto-imperial display of official self-aggrandizement and piteous toadying, a black Mass during which every unholy order of teacup totalitarian and cringing courtier gathers under the towering dome of a faux-Roman temple to listen to a speech with no content given by a man with no content, to rise and to be seated as is called for by the order of worship — it is a wonder they have not started genuflecting — with one wretched representative of their number squirreled away in some well-upholstered Washington hidey-hole in order to preserve the illusion that those gathered constitute a special class of humanity without whom we could not live…

The State of the Union is only one example of the deepening, terrifying cult of the state that has taken root here. Many heads of state — and some royals, for that matter — fly on commercial aircraft. Presidents of the Swiss federation and members of the federal council receive . . . an unlimited train pass. They have occasional access to a Cessna maintained by the air force, but are known to use mass transit — just like the people they are elected to represent. An American president stages a Roman triumph every time he heads out for a round of golf. The president’s household costs well more than $1 billion annually to operate. The president’s visage is more ubiquitous than was Vladimir Lenin’s in his prime, his reach Alexandrian, his sense of immortality (they call it “legacy”) pharaonic. Washington has become a deeply weird and alien place, a Renaissance court with armored sedans and hundred-million-dollar paydays.

Excerpts from Obama’s speech have been released as I write this but I’m not going to go looking for them because who cares? You’ve heard all this before. The only somewhat new element, in perfect keeping with Williamson’s point, is that O will assert his royal prerogative to carry out his agenda via executive order if Congress refuses to comply. He’s semi-formally dispensing with the trappings of republican democracy at an event tailor-made for the occasion. Beyond that, the speech is Groundhog Day: It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be gray, and it’s gonna feel like it’ll last you for the rest of your life.

If you somehow make it all the way through, stay tuned for three — yes, really — GOP rebuttals. Cathy McMorris-Rogers will deliver the official one, doubtless featuring a specific appeal to women. Mike Lee will deliver a tea-party response blaming government for inequality and proposing new opportunities for the middle class. And Rand Paul, as is now tradition, will deliver a response of his own emphasizing Americans’ perennial top priority, jobs. Enjoy.

The only somewhat new element, in perfect keeping with Williamson’s point, is that O will assert his royal prerogative to carry out his agenda via executive order if Congress refuses to comply.

If I were sure the United States under Obama is a nightmare from which I could awaken I would be happy to give Barry a pen and let him start writing executive orders ad nauseum. There is no idea, plan or program that he is ideologically capable of formulating that will lead to an improvement in the economy, period. Frankly, as much as he spouts off about how awesomely awesome he is, it always seems to me that his biggest fear is having to take responsibility for something. There is no executive order that he can write that he will be willing to take responsibility for when he learns that his latest bright idea continues to tank the economy. Have fun Barry. You are a loser and history will show that you are a loser.

By the way, I refuse to watch the SOTU speech tonight. Could someone do me a favor later and let me know how many SC Justices show up?

President Obama always wanted the speech to “sing,” as he put it

That The One is even further removed from reality than we previously thought?

Either that or he wants everyone to join in and sing a hymn- to him.

If it’s liveblogged here I may check in, but otherwise I’ll probably be reading an old David Weber novel I’ve finally gotten round to (The Armageddon Inheritance).

Mostly, with The One’s State Of His Fantasy Universe addresses, I mainly wonder if he’s either going to cut loose in full rant mode, screaming for the obliteration of everybody he doesn’t like, or just go into unrecoverable dementia praecox and start making demands like,

Obey my ZORRNNGG!

Worship my NOSE!

GARRVVLLE MY YOOM-YOOM, NOW!!

(It’s called “word salad” in psychiatry, BTW, and yes, I have heard it from people in real life. In fact, that’s a mild example.)

I suspect that sooner or later, The One or The Mouth will have a full-on breakdown on national TV. (Mind you, with Joe, it’s entirely possible that nobody will notice the difference.)

Other than the possibility of seeing that, the SOTU isn’t worth wasting electricity on with this… President.

Everyone already knows what he’ll say. And everyone knows it will be stupid, dogmatic, delusional, or two or more of the above.

Most likely all three together.

The Demise of Darwin:

The Fate of Darwinism: Evolution After the Modern Synthesis

Abstract

We trace the history of the Modern Evolutionary Synthesis, and of genetic Darwinism generally, with a view to showing why, even in its current versions, it can no longer serve as a general framework for evolutionary theory. The main reason is empirical. Genetical Darwinism cannot accommodate the role of development (and of genes in development) in many evolutionary processes. We go on to discuss two conceptual issues: whether natural selection can be the “creative factor” in a new, more general framework for evolutionary theorizing; and whether in such a framework organisms must be conceived as self-organizing systems embedded in self-organizing ecological systems.

http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs13752-011-0007-1

(This one of those “prestigious peer-reviewed” publications the evolutionists are always talking about.)

O does realize that not only have all five of his previous SOTUs been essentially the same, they’re also essentially the same as every SOTU delivered over the past 30 years, no?

Uh … no. barky tells more lies and idiotic falsehoods in every SOTU speech he gives than all of the SOTU speeches given before him, together. Further, Barky is about the only one who uses his SOTU speech to attack everyone around and try to berate and intimidate the SCOTASS (not that Barky ever really needed to with Benedict Roberts running that Indonesian-worshipping, America-hating lunatic asylum).

Nothing Barky does is fairly comparable to anyone before, just as Barky’s 84 IQ and total lack of knowledge is incomparable to any before him. Barky is in his own league – a retarded, third-world, inept, incompetent, malevolent, affirmative action sort of league.

Nothing is sadder than seeing people lose track of how radically anti-American Barky is and how he has perverted and destroyed everything he has set his cross-eyed gaze on. Barky is not just another leftist douche in the White House. Barky is a true third-world retard who has no connections to America, whatsoever. And, as time goes on, more and more people are taken in with the insane notion that “he’s no different than any of ‘the other Presidents on the dollar bills’”. WTFF?

This is why we need a national divorce. Urgently.

As to Barky’s SOTU, I’m not bothering with it. I listened to enough of his 3rd grade speechifying and lying to know what he’ll be BSing about and who he’ll be accusing of treason against the American Socialist Superstate. Nothing new for Barky, and it will be as distinctly un-American and as different from any other SOTU speech as all of Barky’s other pathetic SOTUs were.

Reid will allow vote on Democratic-backed Obamacare changes

“If there are things we can do to improve the bill, we should do it,” Reid told Bash during an interview in his office. “There’s a group of senators, 2014ers we call them, who are coming up with different proposals. I’m meeting with them some this week and individually.”

Reid would not specify certain changes he would make, telling Bash that while there are “five or six really substantive proposals,” one suggestion is to “lump them all together.”

“I don’t think that would be a best way to do it,” said the majority leader. “I think the best way to do it would be to do them one at a time, and that’s all we’re working on now.”

My word for the day is OBAMU.

obamu
(v.) To ignore inexpedient and inconvenient facts or realities, think “Yes we can, Yes we can,” and proceed with optimism using those facts as an inspiration (literally, as fuel). It is used to elicit success in a personal endeavor. One explanation holds that it is the opposite of kobamu. (which means to refuse, reject, or oppose).
Hey, why are you so down in the dumps? Obamu!

Perhaps if we all ignore reality and chant OBAMU! OBAMU! OBAMU!, we will have a better understanding of the alternate universe that the liberals inhabit.

ICE Union Boss Urges GOP: Don’t Ignore Immigration Officers

The people who see it everyday are being kicked to the curb while illegals are given the spa treatment.

It will happen tonight: Dog Eater lays out his plan to enact amnesty.

President Obama always wanted the speech to “sing,” as he put it.

So:

Is it auto-tuned or lip-synched?
