From the Office of Judy Chu

Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s sixth State of the Union address:

"Tonight, President Obama spoke to our best intentions as Americans. At a time when a hard-day’s work doesn’t earn a livable wage and solutions in Washington stall out in political gridlock, the president’s proposals extend beyond the partisan rancor to address the challenges of our time.
 
"The American people deserve better governance for their tax dollars than what they got in 2013, which is why I am glad the president will use executive orders where Congress does not act. We have an economy on the mend, a healthcare law to implement, and an immigration system in desperate need of reform. These challenges demand action, and stonewalling over the past year has only raised the stakes higher. Tonight, President Obama gave us a realistic alternative to the politics of polarization, and it’s one I am proud to join him in fighting for."

Thank you Judy Chu. Let me translate that for you. My translation will be in caps for clarity between quotes, and my translation. *** "Tonight, President Obama spoke to our best intentions as Americans" == TONIGHT PRESIDENT OBAMA DID THE BEST HE COULD TO SPIN EVERYTHING IN A POSITIVE LIGHT ***. "the president’s proposals extend beyond the partisan rancor to address the challenges of our time" ===EVERYTHING THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO DO IS SO PARTISAN, AND SPOKEN IN A POLORIZING WAY, SO, HE WONT EVEN TRY TO REACH ACROSS THE AISLE. *** "The American people deserve better governance for their tax dollars than what they got in 2013==== WELL, DUH....TRANSLATION IS NEVER NEEDED HERE FOR ANY PRESIDENT. *** "which is why I am glad the president will use executive orders" SO DAMMIT, HE IS GONNA SEE JUST HOW MUCH HE CAN GET AWAY WITH BEFORE THE LAME DUCK PERIOD STARTS. HE IS NOT A COMMUNIST, NO MATTER HOW MUCH I HOPED, BUT AT LEAST HE KNOWS HOW TO DICTATE LAW!! *** "Tonight, President Obama gave us a realistic alternative to the politics of polarization, and it’s one I am proud to join him in fighting for." TONIGHT HE ACTED LIKE POLORIZATION IS ONLY FROM THE OTHER SIDE (well gee, wouldn't you?) It was said Chu was heard mumbling something about being late for her government agenda 21 land grab meeting Thank you, and god bless America. The preceding was mostly for humor. When we feel the president is on "our" side we tend to overlook and excuse decisions that we don't understand, whether it the drones and Guantanamo, or Reagans amnesty and running out of Beirut in 1983, one thing is sure...Reagan was funnier ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVYtIdUcYqY )

He spoke to our best intentions as Americans? It depends on your definition of "our" since most of us are left out of the equation. Some federal employees get an hourly pay hike......yep, our best intentions. I am so sick of this "leader" and his dog and pony shows coupled with all this AirForceOne trips, and all the other garbage etc........can hardly wait to see him go! But his liberal cronies will still be there, darn!
