I have a dream…for the State of the Union address

We are one week away from President Obama’s sixth State of the Union address. The question is, what shall we hear?

I would love to hear a president focus on tax, regulatory, and monetary reforms that spur economic growth for America. It would be pleasing to hear that in his final years, President Obama would move us away from the progressive tax system that onerously punishes productivity.

Let’s hear Obama say he will move America towards a flat tax system because every American should play their part and actually pay a “fair share.” Perhaps he will talk about eliminating capital gains and dividends taxes, as well as the death tax.

Maybe Obama will realize the individual entrepreneurial spirit is the key to economic growth, not printing money. I look forward to hearing the president talk about reducing the corporate business tax rate and eliminating loopholes, just a flat rate of perhaps 25 percent in order to inspire production and manufacturing in America. In concert with these tax reforms will come regulatory reform enabling small businesses the opportunity to grow, and that means not implementing a 50-employee cap as part of Obamacare.

Maybe in a week Obama will come to realize and admit to the American people that Obamacare was the wrong approach and is costing the American taxpayer far beyond the $900 billion stated in 2010. Perhaps the president will say he has reviewed the free market healthcare reforms as presented by the House GOP and is ready and willing to discuss how they can be implemented.

And I just know it would be music to many ears to hear President Obama say that the following morning he will approve the Keystone XL Pipeline.

I hope President Obama will address breaking promises to our military retirees and veterans, and that we must reform government to be less wasteful in spending and not balance the budget on the backs of those who are our most devoted, honorable, and courageous.

And therefore, President Obama would announce the elimination of all administration czars as part of government reform. And I just know that Obama, as Commander-in-Chief, will state he made a wrong and purely political decision in not establishing a Status of Forces Agreement in Iraq which would have avoided the power vacuum in Iraq. He would articulate the failures of Libya and Egypt and address how we restore our reputation in the Middle East, and indeed the world. And that we need to recognize the clear and present danger of Islamic totalitarianism and terrorism. And then he would say, “I am hereby declaring the actions of Nidal Hasan a terrorist attack.”

Ok, enough of the pipe dream. We know what the State of the Union will be about: income inequality, more unemployment benefits, the economy is booming, and just more of the collectivist political agenda aimed at gaining points by way of demonizing the opposition.

After all, the most important thing for President Obama is the mid-term elections, and having a compliant House and Senate that will enable his “fundamental transformation” of America.

My friend Mark Levin has called for Republicans to boycott the State of the Union address. I humbly disagree. Republicans must attend, but should just sit and listen. There should be no cheering, and why should there be, unless President Obama apologizes for his lies and deceit — I suppose my former colleague Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) was correct.

I just wish President Obama would walk into the House chamber next week with no teleprompter speech and just come clean with the American people. No politics, no lies, no empty rhetoric, just demonstrate for once you can address “We the People” with sincerity of heart and love of country. Or perhaps I ask too much of the ultimate charlatan…

What would you like to hear President Obama say next week? Will you watch the State of the Union address?

I’d love to hear him say he’s resigning.

I will watch, but I doubt the President will say anything that I would like to hear.
I am concerned for this country and if things don’t start to move in a different direction, I see the USA becoming a Socialist Nation..

skdee
Guest

I will not watch, cannot stand to see him or hear his nasty voice. He hates this country and is working to turn it into a socialist state. I pray that not one Republican will stand/applaud or show any form of approval of this hateful man.

smomaha

Not watching. I have no use for what a criminal pathalogical liar has to say or offer.

Nina Williams Locker

I will try to watch…BUT,,,, if …he starts all his lies ,and the same
old story I will watch HGTV,,, which has no lying,in it…lol.

I say you are dreaming and you are not going to get anything you want. He is going to give more of the same rich bashing, hate mongering, socialist policies he began with in his drive to destroy this country. Then he is going to blame all of his failures on those of us who disapprove of him because of his color not because of socialist policies. Because he is a jerk out to destroy the greatest country in the world, of course this is after he enjoys every benefit he can get out of it and make every penny… Read more »

I agree the Republicans need to be present but silent.

Tina Tate

Be silent about what Mary!?!?!

Opinionated American

I also agree. Silent and smiling. Because if the republicans are sitting there and smiling. Obama would not know what to think.

Opinionated American

I would love him to say in plain english, “I FIRED HIMMLER HOLDER AND I F’ING QUIT! And I am guilty of manipulating the constitution. I need to be arrested. Just a few.

ohhhdear

Silence is consent. The R’s should be there and have their voices heard. We have a traitor in the WH and the R’s still do nothing. They are complicit .

Connie Alsip

What can they do? With Harry Reid as Leader, and a DEM majority in the Senate, even should the GOP perform impeachment, there is no way Harry will even open the discussion for debate. We MUST impeach this foreign Muslim Communist and get control of the Senate. This country is headed straight to a hell of Obozo’s making, and I don’t believe any American wants to live as a communist 3rd world country headed by the political system also known as Islam. #ImpeachObama #MolonLabe #DontTreadOnMe #DownWithTheLiberalAgenda

That’s why the 2014 elections are crucial for the survival of this Nation.
We must keep the house, show Boehner the door and take the senate.

I have diligently listened to almost all of his speeches. I don’t think I can take another one of the same old, same old. If he were to grant all of Allen West’s wishes, I would like to wake up the morning after, listen to Fox news and be surprised to hear that he (the president) had turned a new leaf and we could all be happy to have him as our president.

Barbara Winters

I want to hear him say “I resign”.

Tina Tate

AMEN!!

Michael Lawrence

I think Allen West may be asking a bit much of dear leader….

Hey he is not a dear, otherwise Dick Cheyenne would have shot him while hunting.

Dear Mr. West… yes, you ask too much of the charlatan, and I wish you were still in the House so I could see/hear your reaction while the Liar in Chief spews more of his diarrhea of the mouth. And yes, Joe Wilson was right…

Bonnie McCollett
Guest

No I won’t watch it, I’m disgusted with him and the whole democratic party. My dream is that he’ll stand up and stay three words. “I Quit…period”

Tina Tate
Guest

I stopped watching and listening to the Liar in Chief after his first 6 month in office!!! It really shouldn’t have taken any American longer than that to realize they’d elected a totally empty suit with a mega ego and lying mouth!!!

MAW
Guest

I got enough of him when he first ran for office. All he ever talked about was ‘he wanted to bring change to America’, but never gave any specifics as to how he would do that. I knew right then he was up to no good. Anyone that makes “rainbow” promises, but can’t give you any exact details is just blowing smoke!

ski
Guest

I had high hopes in the first term, almost just after his swearing into office and the freezing out of the Republicans in all manner of negotiations I soon realize that the whole plan for the administration was preplanned years before of his being elected to the office of the presidency, l knew everything that they had planned and were position to implement.
So I will try to listen to the state of the Union.

Rick Thompson

I wouldn’t believe Obama no matte what he might say. It would be more lies

Idout he will ever relize anything je is blind as a bat

that because he has his head up his kazoo.

The Narcissist will continue on with his agenda , as for the the republicans they are nothing but RINO’S/ dem lites and have enabled all this horrible man has done, except for a few who are actually conservative.. Am sure Boehner will clap and cry for berry, and probably when done will call out the conservatives on THEIR behavior.. All these tools need to be voted out.

Don McLaughlin

I would love to hear, ” Due to my lack of ability to run this nation, and my strong desire to rule over all it’s citizens, I am resigning.”

But then you have Biden and he is like the scarecrow in OZ.

JusticeIsAJoke

Biden speech since I have not teleprompter I will resign.

Pam

I agree…… dream on.

Syble
Guest

It would do my heart good to hear him say he is Resigning and all his EO’s and bills are null an void… and in the process he is taking Nancy and Harry along with him!! Now that is a REAL Pipe dream….

Kathy

This would definitely be sweet music to my ears!!!!!!!!!!!

James Robertson

Ya, then we woke up.

Patricia
Guest

Probably not, as I have reached the point where when I listen to him I get sick at my stomach and when I look at him I wish truth serum would take over and he couldn’t tell any more lies, but had to come out the the truth, the whole truth and nothing BUT the truth, so help him God!

surfcitysocal
Guest

I will watch, but reluctantly so. I respect Levin tremendously, but I too, disagree with him on boycotting the SOTU. I may burst out with groans and want to throw things at the tv while watching, but tweeting and RTing astute (conservatives’) tweets will assuage the frustration somewhat.

Jacqueline Lynn
Guest

I have shared the same opinion on FB. YES, Republicans should be present for the State of the Union. BUT they should sit and stare at the phony at the Bully Pulpit. They should not rise! They should not applaud anything he says!
Unless he fulfills our dream by announcing that due to his total failure of leadership he is resigning his office!!!Then there should be fireworks and dancing in the streets!

MAW

Well said!

Doug

I sincerely hope Rep Joe Wilson gives America an encore performance! Go Joe!

AnnMarie Escher

I’ll give him about a minute and a half to say anything substantial with no rhetoric or charm…then, when he fails as I know he will, turn the channel.

Arrgh2112
Guest

Without a teleprompter? Have you heard dear leader when his minions screwed up his teleprompter or, heaven forbid, neglected putting his speech on the podium for him? The constant stream of uhhh’s and umm’s would make for great comedy though.

I would love to hear him take responsibility for something…anything. The buck has never made it through the force field around his footstool better known as the Oval Office desk.

And no, I get this churning in my stomach at the sight of him, I would have to keep a bucket if I had to listen to him.

Nick Crowder
Guest

How sad. I almost always watch the State of the Onion. But, Allen, you are right. Why watch? Why listen? Why does it matter what he says? He’ll lie about what he feels like, blame others when it fails, deny any wrong doing, and promote those who were responsible for the mistakes.

JusticeIsAJoke
Guest

You need to watch to see what he up to next. What other lies will he tell.
It is best to be prepared not to be blind..

Mike

What will he say – i am your King I will do what I please and you can do nothing about it – thats the short version

Guest

Well said. I think though that the Lord will need to change this man’s heart and actions.

joe

I cannot think of a better candidate for the next president than Allen West. He is exactly what this country needs

I would have a difficult choice between Allen West and Ben Carson!

Dave

I guess it will be good entertainment, if only to count the times he say ‘make sure’ during his prefabricated diatribe. And of course to compare to the times so far he’s said to ‘make sure’ of something and did the exact opposite. So it will be in reality…”we will make sure that the Muslims get whatever they ask for, the Republican party is outlawed, Christianity is a crime, guns are illegal unless used against gun owning Americans, Common Core will be further dumbed down to teach that I am the king and history as it has been taught will… Read more »

I simply love it if Obama says “I am resigning the office as President of United States” that would be something to cheer for. BTW take that useless sidekick of yours call Joe Biden with you.

Reba

Not that I can stand listening and looking at the President, but I plan on watching so I can hear what he says with my own ears. I also hope the Republicans don’t clap about anything.

Hotnike

I WON’T EVEN WASTE MY TIME TO LISTEN TO THAT ARROGANT SOB LIE THROUGH THE WHOLE TRIFLE!!!!

MAW

I can’t stand to watch the ‘Liar-in-Chief’! He makes me sick and so mad. The only way I could bear to watch this would be for him to actually apologize and RESIGN as President!

I’ll watch him, just to hear what lies come out of his mouth. I hope he dares us conservative Americans to try to stop him!!

Yes it is a dream isn’t it? Let’s take away obamas phone and put him in the pen in 2014! Congress – Action, Let’s Roll!

I have given up on anything constructive from Obama. He is all about destruction of the American system. It was working before Obama. It might have had flaws but was working anyway. Oh how i long to go back to those days before Obama care. What a difference those few months have made in so many American’s lives. He should take responsibility for what he has done and do no more harm. The only way he could do that is by resigning. He will never do that though so we are doomed. To bad everyone is so afraid of him.… Read more »

I hold no illusions over what will be said at the sou, and I will avoid listening to it as i do every speech by Obama. You see, I was married to a habitual liar once, and have less than zero tolerance for being lied to to my face. For my own health and mental well being, I will leave that task to those with stronger dispositions to listen, and will gain the facts in reports afterward (needless to say, I will not reading or listening to the msm)

I don’t think I can afford to watch another obama speech; his lies make me sick and because of obamacare, my insurance rate and coverage isn’t so good anymore.

Watch to see how many Republicans clap, stand and clap, smile and nod their heads in agreement. You know ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and Aljazeera will be watching them and not Obama. They are the real news!

In your dreams only will you hear him say these things. Sadly his narcissism gets in the way of Patriotism.

Dear God, I could die a happy man with Lt. Col. West running this country.

Col. West, I too would like to hear the “truth” for a change, but have every reason to believe if you have a copy of last years speech, it will be a repeat. And, if I’m not mistaken, that was a repeat of the previous years speech. There truly are some 5th and 6th graders I know that could run this country better than this man. He’s been a liar, coward, traitor from the very beginning, and yet his constituents still vote him back in. Guess we’ll have to wait until the “worm turns” for those folks, before they wake… Read more »
