Remember when zerO was running for president, all the wonderful promises he made?? The Loonys lapped it all up, zerO was the return of the messiah, to lead us all to the promised land. The problem was, he was nothing more than a snake oil salesman and the promises were nothing but hot air.

Well, get ready folks, you're gong to hear it all again tonight. And the zerO zOmbies are ready to lap it all up again. You can be sure he won't mention the runaway debt that's now over 15.2 trillion, or the lack of a budget in over 1000 days or the unemployment that's over 12% when adding in those that have stopped looking or the Keystone pipeline he nixed. No, he'll talk about the imaginary 3 million jobs he created (but then why is the unemployment so high ??) and whatever else he thinks he can sell to the Loonys. I'm sure all the Kearny Loons will feel a tingle up their legs tonight when zerO talks about how great a job he's doing but clear thinking americans are not buying his line of shit again.

I don't know but somehow I can only dream of the comedy that a SOTU speech could have been with a Rick Perry win, or if only Gingrich could have won he could have first ladies version 1,2 and 3 in the audience. Romney would have moved the speech location to the Caymans with Christie helo'ed in by State Police, Palin would have stopped speaking at the halfway mark.

Oh the GOP class of 2012 will be remembered for a lot of things - just not a victory.

So you have no interest in 1000 days without a budget, the debt heading for 16 trillion or 45 million people on food stamps?? Minor details, right.

Here are a few other "minor details."

1. The middle class has been decimated during and as a result of the "conservative" ascendance in American politics since 1981. Wealth has been systematically redistributed in favor of 1% and against the rest of us. And when anyone points out the fact, Republicans call it "class warfare." In psychology, this is called projection: attributing what you are doing to someone else.

2. During this era of irresponsibility, we have done virtually nothing to invest in our future: no energy development, the degradation of our infrastructure, no high speed rail development. These are just some of the things that developing economies are doing. We're not doing them because Republicans have a knee-jerk reaction against government doing anything. But historically, government has always gotten the ball rolling for private industry. The transcontinental railway system and the interstate highway system are just two examples of government-run or government-led programs that completely transformed our economy, and made us a world power. We could have done it again by now in energy development but the Republicans and their friends in the oil industry made sure it didn't happen. So now we pay the bill. But we can still do the research and get the technology on the market for private industry to run with.

3. We have also paid very little attention to our educational system, leaving it in the hands of local school districts. Nations that are surpassing us in educational standards have a national ethic about education that we don't have. So when you look at top students in science and mathematics, you'll see mostly Asian names.

4. We've wasted trillions of dollars over the years on weapons systems we never used and didn't need. President Eisenhower, who was our commanding general in World War II, warned us about the military-industrial complex fifty years ago. But there has been a constant knee-jerk reaction from the right that any dollar spent on the military was well-spent. It's not true.

5. In 1929, the economy collapsed after a speculative boom in an unregulated economy. In 2008, the economy nearly collapsed after a speculative boom in an insufficiently regulated economy. Now the banks are whining that the regulations are being put back on. It's about time. In fact, it's long past time. The bankers hated FDR but the truth is, he saved their bacon, and he saved capitalism from its own excesses. The main criticism of Obama is not that he has been too far to the left; it's that he gave too much control to the bankers in directing the recovery - which is why it hasn't filtered down to the middle class yet.

To understand this, you have to be able to think, and you have to understand economics and history. You can't just get talking points from people who shill for the very interest groups that have created the problem. Roger Ailes is head of Fox. He's a right wing hack whose only interest is in making more money. If you don't follow the money, you can't understand any of this.

So much Gobbledygook and Poppycock. No other response necessary.
