Keith Olbermann and President Obama’s upcoming State of the Union Address: Both Pointless

Liberal commentator Keith Olbermann has left the MSNBC building, not that it really matters.

There are plenty of other people more than willing to pick up where he left off, spewing misinformation, speaking down to Americans and generally being a raging nuisance.

In other words, he’s a dime a dozen, and I’m quite sure other fringe lunatics such as Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow will take over quite nicely. Regardless, Olbermann could still find a home at CNN or some other tasteless organization.

Besides, even if all of those obviously unreasonable, horribly biased voices all-too ready to resort to verbal vitriol suddenly turned to ash from all of their heated rhetoric… even then, that wouldn’t make the liberals go away with their sham attempts at projecting a bipartisan spirit.

They care as much about reaching across the aisle as they do about women’s rights, minority’s rights or human rights in general. So basically, they don’t care at all.

You can’t blame them too much for that though. I mean, how can we expect them to be concerned about the little people when they’re so intent on pushing their agenda? And it must take an enormous amount of energy to come up with the silly schemes they do for every event and non-event that comes their way.

Working a Little Bit too Hard

Really, we should cut them a bit of slack. After all, they’ve been working very, very hard at signing everybody on board to hold hands and sing kum-bay-yah on Tuesday during Obama’s State of the Union address.

Sure, the only people that little farce will convince will be those who are dead-set on being manipulated and lied to (i.e. liberal voters). But that doesn’t diminish the amount of work Democrat congressmen and women had to put into the effort all the same.

And let’s face it, amongst the Republican establishment, their ploy worked well enough, at least on the usual silly suspects. Senator John McCain certainly stepped forward to do his part in displaying the party he claims to support as being completely toothless. And the media pundits – except for Olbermann – can also flip the coin and mull over Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s “partisan” decision to remain seated at the Republican leadership table.

Let’s be honest here, that’s what this whole sitting together shtick is all about. It has nothing to do with getting along and everything to do with playing further into the idea that somehow, conservative talking points were responsible for a now confirmed left-wing nutcase’s shooting of a self-proclaimed conservative Democrat.

Fortunately, McConnell had the guts to point out that: “More important than the appearances of sitting together is what we do together. And the American people are more interested in actual accomplishments on a bipartisan basis here in the next six to nine months than they are with the seating arrangement at the State of the Union.”

Well said Mr. Senator! Well said!

More Double Speak

We need more unabashed behavior and straightforward speech going forward, as President Obama once again displays that he could care less what the American people want or need.

From one side of his mouth, he speaks out about how “government should not intrude on private family matters.” That was part of the speech he gave for the commemoration of perhaps the most disgusting Supreme Court decision ever: Roe v. Wade, which legalized the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of human lives.

Yet Obama certainly doesn’t care about such citizen rights when it comes to the much simpler matter of how those families spend their money…

If he really cares so much about family choice, shouldn’t it be up to each household how much they give to charity… whether they want to use their income to save for some big life event or on studying the drinking habits of Chinese prostitutes… or if they’d prefer to take a relaxing day at a spa or use that money to uphold a business that made repeated poor decisions?

In fact, the Wall Street Journal reports that, if anything, Obama would like to take even more of that money away from us, along with our nation’s fiscal health and security.

During his State of the Union address, he apparently plans to “argue that the U.S., even while trying to reduce its budget deficit, must make targeted investments to foster job growth and boost U.S. competitiveness in the world economy."

Talk about tone deaf. Or perhaps he just genuinely doesn’t care.

Either way, this man clearly doesn’t deserve the office he swore to uphold.
