Several days ago, Obama put the kibbosh on the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to Texas. It would have brought a plentiful supply of oil and gas into the country while creating thousands of jobs in the process. Alas, it ran afoul of global-warming-hoax believers and some environmental groups. So he bowed to the envirowhackos and turned his back (once again) on the country at large. He and Sebelius also are moving to compel people of conscience to pay for coverage for contraception and abortifacients (see previous post).
On the surface, these two issues appear to have nothing in common - unless you ponder the likely motives of the Messiah Most Miserable. However, consider that: in both scenarios, he is completely disregarding the legitimate interests of the majority of American citizens to satisfy radical elements of his electoral base: the global-warming envirowhackos on one hand and radical abortion supporters on the other. Also consider the timing. Does anyone really think it's a coincidence that he's paying obeiscance to these radical components of his base at a time so close to the November elections? Moreover, he is scheduled to deliver the State of the Union address tomorrow evening.
You may rest assured that tomorrow's address will be not much more than poltical grand-standing. Dare I predict that he'll spend a goodly bit of time braying about the Keystone stoppage and the HHS draconian measures? I predict that he'll be thumping his chest about both of these acts of supreme stupidity.
Besides that, I predict the address will sound a lot like the following video - unless the Messianic Teleprompter undergoes a significant tune-up! (Click here if you can't see embedded video)
