As most of you know I love sports analogies, so I am going to use one here.
A-merry-ca these days is like a basketball team with loads of talent that is getting beaten by a lesser team. We are down double digits at half time and we needed our coach to inspire us and tell us to go out and use the talent that we have and win the damn game.
The O man was our coach tonight, and he did a good job of trying to fire up the A-merry-can team. He laid out the x and o's to help us do it, and he inspired his players to get fired up and go out and lay it all on the line. That is what he needed to do. For too long he talked like a coach whose team was finished and was down by too many points. His players were hanging their heads and looking at the Dow scoreboard and thinking it was over. This speech tonight changed that somewhat, and I will be damned if his players probably aren't feeling like they might be able to pull out a win.
"But while our economy may be weakened and our confidence shaken; though we are living through difficult and uncertain times, tonight I want every American to know this: We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before.."
Put me in coach!
Oh, and before I sign off, I have to make a few points:
You all will notice that Eric Holder wasn't in the House chamber tonight. I think his O ness might have told him to be the one to stay at a hidden place in case of an attack. We don't need A-merry-ca being reminded about what "cowards" they are tonight, Eric.
I loved the first lady's hook up. Mrs. Obama I can honestly say that you are the first and only First Lady in history who made my johnson restless.
Who was the brotha in the greeting line who looked like he jumped off an Ohio Players album cover?
And was that his O ness hugging Richard Shelby? O man, maybe you can walk on water.
I am watching the republicans own version of his O ness give the republican response now.(Poor guy, even FOX is dissing him) And all I can say is that if imitation is the greatest form of flattery, the dumbocrats must be feeling downright giddy.
