It’s been a day plus since President Obama has given his State of the Union address, and it has finally all soaked in.
I spent Wednesday listening to politicos and cable news pundits dissect it, praise it, trash it.
As typical, the pundits and talking heads missed the mark. They missed the target of Obama’s message and more importantly, the targeted audience.
I heard the 24/7 political soothsayers state that Obama failed to deliver specifics, and that his speech was flat because there wasn’t any jumping up and down amongst our elected representatives.
Hell, even the Tea Party designate, Michele “You Can See Me, But I Can’t See You” Bachmann who delivered a rebuttal, missed the point of Obama’s address.
This country is in a funk…a malaise…a decrepitude.
When Obama gave his speech Tuesday night, he didn’t give a speech of specifics, instead he painted a canvas full of colors of history, hope, and reminders.
Our nation is in trouble. There is no other way around that fact, and yet…
The President reminded us how we as Americans have in the past, pulled ourselves, collectively, out of messes in the past.
We as a nation are a group of morons both loveable and unlovable…but, when we are met with a national struggle, we rise above our individual idiocy and come together as one.
President Obama was asking that of us on Tuesday, and we need to do so…before it is too late. For if we continue to live and act apart from one and other, we will certainly slide like river silt into the ocean of has beens collectively.
He wasn’t trying to speak to policy wonks on the right or left…He was giving this country a pep talk. We need that, and I’m glad that he did. I liked it.
So, well…that’s all I have to say about that.
And now…Don’t Forget!!!
