Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
San Fran Nan is in full-fledged dementia now. – Honestly, how else do we explain this octogenarian sitting behind the President of the United States of America, making weird faces and otherwise behaving like a teenage mean girl in the high school cafeteria throughout the speech? And then, to top her wretched performance off, throwing a tantrum and tearing up the copy of the speech the President had handed her at the end?
But then again, Pelosi is just an exemplar of her entire caucus, especially all those ridiculous Democrat women in their idiotic white suits. How does any group of women sit on their hands when the President talks about record low unemployment for…women? How does any group of women, regardless of party affiliation or ideology, jeer at a single, African American mom who wants to be able to get her precious child out of a badly-performing school? How does any group of women literally hiss – yes, they hissed – at a man who just was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer as he is awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom?
For the second State of the Union in a row, Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema refused to conform to Pelosi’s stupid white suit edict, preferring not to be associated with this gaggle of hissing buffoons. Good for her.
Where was Sheila? – Here’s a great thing about the event that few will notice: Because at least 8 Democrats declined to attend the speech, several Republican members were able to move across the aisle and sit on the Democrat side. This move forced Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee – who sits in the chamber all day every year so she can get a seat along the aisle – to move over one seat, and denied her her annual photo op shaking the President’s hand as he came into the room.
The speech itself was magnificent, possibly the most powerful State of the Union address ever delivered. – Only Trump the President would have the political courage to announce he will award the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh. Only Trump the Showman would have the sense of timing and place to actually have the First Lady secure the medal around Limbaugh’s neck during the State of the Union speech!
It was just one of so many amazing, incredibly powerful moments:
- The introduction of Brigadeer General Charles McGee, a 100-year-old member of the famed Tuskeegee Airmen, along with his great-grandson;
- The reuniting of a family with their father who has been serving our country in the Middle East;
- The introduction of opposition leader Juan Guaido’ as the rightful President of Venezuela;
- The awarding on the spot of an Opportunity Scholarship to a beautiful 4th-grader whose mom is anxious to get her the best education possible;
On and on and on the great moments went. But the speech was more than just theatrics.
As is typical of President Trump, the language in the speech did not focus on him, but on the nation. The words “me,” and “I” were virtually absent from the text, in favor of the words “us,” and “we.” This is of course in direct contrast to Barack Obama His Own Self, who regularly talked about himself in the first person upwards of 200 times in these speeches.
It was a soaring, overwhelmingly positive speech that pointed to all of the great things we have achieved as Americans, not that Trump has accomplished as President. The pettiness of Pelosi and her fellow Democrats notwithstanding, it was an hour-long celebration of America and Americans of all beliefs, creeds and stripes.
It was, in a word, brilliant.
The same cannot be said of the Democrat response, delivered by Michigan Governor [consults notes] Gretchen Whitmer. As is typical of these things, Whitmer was an enormous disappointment.
Her delivery was stilted, and she was obviously uncomfortable on the national stage. The setting for the speech – a high school gym that is such a favored free venue for Democrat politicians – seemed small and even goofy in the wake of the President’s soaring hour.
And the nonsense Gov. Whitmer spewed for 12 minutes was just completely unrelated to the reality of America today. The entire Democrat ideology relies on communicating the belief that everything America is in constant state of turmoil and crisis, and Whitmer played the good little soldier, goose-stepping in rhythm with the official Party narrative.
Yet, the only crises happening in America today are the fake crises the Democrats and their media toadies have either invented out of whole cloth or, like California’s massive homeless problem, created themselves with their own idiotic policy choices. They are sham crises that have no relationship to the current realities of American life.
Thus, Whitmer’s rhetoric made her seem petty and small, which come to think of it, just places her right in line with Pelosi and all those small, petty “women in white” who sat there jeering and hissing throughout the President’s magnificent speech.
Of course, engaging in that behavior is Pelosi’s and Whitmer’s absolute right. It’s one of the truly great aspects of our masterpiece of a country.
God Bless America.
That is all.
