Ron Fournier on the State of the Union: “Diminished Leader… Americans May Have Already Tuned Out Barack Obama”

Ace sez:

I can’t weigh in on whether it was a “good speech.” I strongly doubt that. But I didn’t watch. At 1:30 am or so I went to bed and turned on the TV and the speech was replaying on Fox. I heard Obama say something — I forget what, but he used his Stage Whisper fake drama voice — and I cursed “F*** you” at the TV.

I brushed my teeth and didn’t hear much more than I had the first time. When I came back out, he said something else clingy, desperate, and false, and again I said “F*** you,” then I turned him off my TV and watched something else for twenty minutes.

Odd. ¬†I’ve been doing (and saying) the same thing for nearly five years now. ¬†Apparently a lot more people are joining up with me of late.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Would be really, really nice to think that that might translate into more people – even, maybe, a majority of the ones who actually vote – deciding they’d really rather have some elected folks who know how to reverse this national-level impending train-wreck we’re on, and who will actually do so…but that’s probably not possible, right?…
