The Common Sense SOTU Rebuttal

Well, we all saw Governor McDonnell do a solid job giving the GOP rebuttal to the President's SOTU lecture, but, today, Madame wrote a 5 nightstick piece. I think if Tingles Matthews would have read Madame's post he would have said, " the whole time I was reading it I forgot she was a woman".

Madame really tried to be as nice as possible by starting the post with "while I don’t wish to speak too harshly about President Obama’s state of the union address"but here's a list of all the crap you've done to the country in the past year. Madame didn't mince words, so I suggest you read the whole thing. But. here's a summary of all the areas Madame in which called out the Great Opologizer: lack of credibility, contradiction, partisanship, lack of common sense, blaming Republicans, a bad health care plan, lobbyists, drastically increasing the debt, bailouts, taking over the auto industry, discussion of a second stimulus, feet dragging on oil leases, lack of support for Afghan women and Iranian democracy, lack of foreign policy discussion, and a fundamental disconnect with the American people. Whew.

Madame even throw in a few thoughts of her own for solutions . And, as always, the last line was great: "Real leadership requires results. Real hope lies in the ingenuity, generosity, and boundless courage of the American people whose voices are still not being heard in Washington."

That's right, Mr. President, maybe God gave you big ears for a reason--to listen!

Was that too harsh?

LOTUS, you did an excellent job of recapping that wonderful Facebook post Madame used you to write.

And NO... it was not even close to being too harsh!

Harsh? No, merely stating the obvious. Go Madame! Sic'em.
