What Kind of “State of the Union” Was That?

Like many of you, (or maybe not) I watched the State of the Union address last night. I’m sure you have all heard the commentaries on it today and are pretty tired of it by now, but I’m going to throw in my 2 cents worth anyway.

My first reaction was what kind of a State of the Union address was that? The term State of the Union reasonably implies (in my opinion) that the president is going to tell you what the state of the union IS. I guess I was wrong on that assumption. He just rattled on about ?????? I don’t really remember, but I do remember what he didn’t say anything about.

He never once mentioned that the reason the unemployment rate is at 7% is because about 20 million people out there ran out of unemployment and aren’t looking for a job anymore. He didn’t mention that the labor participation rate is the lowest in 30 years. He didn’t mention that 1 in 6 Americans are living in poverty. He didn’t mention that most Americans think he is a liar and his approval rating is in the toilet. He didn’t mention anything about our country’s credit rating going down last year because of our out of control debt. I’m sure there are more things he didn’t mention, I just can’t think of them at the moment.

Oh Ya, I remember now. He rattled on about universal pre school (so they can brain wash more of our kids at an earlier age) and if congress won’t do what he wants he will just do it himself. He also said that “Obama Care” is getting fixed. That about sums it up.

About Kathy

I am semi retired and had lots of free time on my hands. I still work part time as a bookkeeper at the little hardware store in our small town but I still had free time to fill so I became a blogger here at The Harley Factor. I also am a compulsive beader so I started a beading blog to show off my bead work call Compulsive Beading. As I have gotten older and mostly wiser I have become very opinionated on a lot of subjects and will share them with you from time to time when I can't keep my mouth shut. Kathy Sinclair
