In State of the Union address…

“Obama to refocus on economy.”

Like a laser, I tell you. Like a laser!

    Wait, State of the Union, or State of the Onion?

  2. Ed Bonderenka Says:

    Re-focus implies a previous focus does it not?
    More lies, obviously.
    Oh, wait, is “economy” a synonym for re-election?

  3. holmes Says:

    That means green jobs and more centralized planning projects that go nowhere, but do happen to enrich further some election supporters. A win-win-win!

  4. M J R Says:

    It is very difficult to underestimate how thoroughly meaningless are the incumbent’s words.

    Yeah, I remember that which neo refers to: focusing “like a laser” on the economy.

    Four (lo-o-o-o-ong) years ago.

    Holmes (above) is correct — if he focuses like he did four years ago, in the same manner, woe is us.

  5. M J R Says:

    that to which neo refers

    [I hit “Submit” instead of “Preview”.]

    What I had is “the sort of English up with which I will not put” (credited to Winston Churchill).

    Re-focus implies a previous focus does it not?

    It does, but I had a different question: on what else has he been focused instead of the economy?

  7. Michael Says:

    oh, yeah “like a laser” — “if you believe that, you’ll buy this watch!”
    Maybe if the laser is broken and unplugged? (Must be hard to focus on anything with the mirror and teleprompeter in the way …)

  8. James Says:

    But I thought we were in a startling recovery!

  9. Occam's Beard Says:

    “Refocused like a laser on the economy, which is doing just fine!”

    How I wish the Reds would settle on one perspective, and work from that.

    “on what else has he been focused instead of the economy?”

    BHO has been focused on the economy. He’s focused on destroying the market economy and herding tens of millions onto the welfare rolls and making sure the Obamaphones vote accordingly. There is a plan and it is working until it doesn’t work and it all comes crashing down. The only question is do we become Argentina, Greece, or Zimbabwe.

  11. Occam's Beard Says:

    Argentina would be my guess.

  12. Charles Says:

    Yep, the Obamanistas need to RE-focus on the economy because they have not drained enough blood from the stinking rich – so, refocus and drain more!

    Tax the rich! Tax the rich! Drive them all to Mother Russia . . .

  13. Tesh Says:

    I hear cats chase laser light spots. Now I can’t shake the mental image of Obama chasing a little red dot.

  14. David Yotham Says:

    My observations are that the Dark Prince has already started his laser-like refocusing on the economy – did he not just give government workers a pay raise of 1%? With the millions of Federal workers scattered throughout the economy, this 1% pay hike will increase American viability abroad. Soon, very soon, everyone will be living in homes powered by green energy and driving electric vehicles – from just a 1% pay hike!

    Amazing, isn’t it? Walmarts springing up everywhere, selling Chinese plastic junk – the entire world is going to prosper by the mentalist acuity of our Dark Prince. Soon everyone will be able to satisfy their lust for an iPhone 7, staying plugged into the latest updates on any one of the Kardashian extensive and bulbous butts!

    Grab your coat and grab your hat
    Leave your worries on the doorstep
    Just direct your feet
    On the sunny side of the street

    (Remember this one? it scared the hell out of us when we were teenagers.)

    They will burn their way into a new world, on top of your corpses.

  17. Sam L. Says:

    I’m thinking: magnifying glass. Using it to focus sunlight on something to burn it up.

  18. Sam L. Says:

    Annnnnnnnnnnd, we’re eagerly awaiting the Fifth Annual Tour of the Summer Of Recovery!

  19. Lizzy Says:

    Let me guess: he “will not rest until…” the economy gets better and people have jobs. No where have I heard that one before?

  20. Ed Bonderenka Says:

    @Lizzy: Golf is not restful.

  21. parker Says:

    “They will burn their way into a new world, on top of your corpses.”

    My corpse does not come cheap. 😉

  22. Ymarsakar Says:

    Lizzy: God does not rest.

    Remember the child sociopaths that use salt to burn through slugs. Well, all of America are now full of slugs for the consumption of the Left.

    That or a sun lens will get you cooked.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
