He pretends he cares about you. He pretends he cares about unemployed and about those without employment.
And yet, the President forgot to mention that the Obama immigration bill imposes a statutory penalty of $5,000 per head, on U.S. employers for hiring U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents over illegal aliens. It also intersects with the Obamacare legislation to add damaging effects for unemployed, jobless, legal aliens, and Americans in general.
He pretends he cares about the economy. He pretends to worry about a litany of topics that affect the lives of hundreds of millions of Americans and yet, he continues allowing his Administration to spend as if each day was their last one one earth.
He pretended to care about your health and created Obamacare that has been doomed from the beginning, making millions lose their health care -together with their families. In his State of the Union he pretended to care about your health care, so he kept talking about Obamacare. He even credited the Affordable Care Act with signing up more than 9 million Americans for private insurance or Medicaid, and he forgot, once again, to mention that Medicaid estimates include renewals, along with new enrollees
And, Obama continues pretending away his fantasy for public consumption.
However, at the end of the day, there is so much fantasy that can be fed to the public.
The story continues and so is the President losing his footing even with his State Media, the infamous MSM, which with lines and headlines as the enumerated below, can no longer hide that there is a limit to how much fantasy even they can swallow.
CNN reports: “Another State of the Union address, another road trip for President Barack Obama to push now-familiar policies that he said he would pursue on his own if Congress won’t cooperate.”
Washington Post: “How to judge the constitutionality of President Obama’s State of the Union ideas,” written by Eugene Kontorovich: “President Obama’s State of the Union address is expected to lay out how he will “bypass Congress” by acting through executive orders to advance policies that he cannot get passed in the legislature. There is a major problem with this, familiar from high school civics: under the Constitution, Congress cannot be bypassed. Indeed, it plays the primary role in setting national policy.”

And it goes on.
He also pretends to worry about developing energy in America. But, as the legendary Texas oil executive T. Boone Pickens advocates, Obama only pretends because, at the end of the day, as…
T. Boone Pickens wrote on LinkedIn: “President’s State of the Union: A Plan Without Action Isn’t a Plan. It’s a Speech. Let’s Act on Energy.”
President Barack Obama talked about energy in his State of the Union address as every President since Richard Nixon has done. In his State of the Union address, President Obama came out strongly for the continued development of natural gas as a major American resource.
That is great news and music to my ears. I have championed a comprehensive national energy strategy – the Pickens Plan – since 2008, with natural gas as a cornerstone. The goal has been to get off OPEC oil by using natural gas for heavy duty trucking.
While I’m obviously heartened by the President’s endorsement of that, I’m also a realist. A plan without action isn’t a plan, it’s a speech. The OPEC oil threat is real. Our national security is threatened by it as is our economic future. After 40 years we just take OPEC for granted, and that’s a big mistake.
As far back as his first State of the Union, President Obama talked about creating and moving energy in new ways. He said “We will soon lay down thousands of miles of power lines that can carry new energy to cities and towns across the country.”
Few, if any, miles of new power lines have been proposed, much less sited, engineered or installed. Great plan. No action.
There will never be “action” because therein the success of his true agenda. In order to destroy America’s individualism as a country it is necessary for him to stop any kind of positive action. So, he pretends, and he talks.
The Great Pretender pretends to fight inequality all the same while creating it, instigating it and, insidiously, promoting it.
Leftists at large know that equality does not exist, has never, nor will it ever, exist. Furthermore, with their policies, they make sure to keep inequality at the top of their lists. Surreptitiously, they disregard and disrespect their masses. There is nothing furthest from their minds than to educate the masses, treat them with respect and grant them the dignity they deserve as human beings. Instead, the Left make sure to paralyze them with state assistance while giving them no access to higher education and by doing so they make sure to enslave them to their tyrannies.
He pretended before. He continues pretending. And there is no sign in sight that he will ever stop pretending.
