"Lets see just how close we are to the media consensus ?"
The secret phrase is "back from the brink."
Now that the highly-regarded Ted Kennedy Senate seat has a 41st Republican derrière to keep it warm and the terrified Democrats are fleeing faster than the Brits at the Battle of New Orleans, everyone is guessing what President Obama's next move will be.
Will he take note of the will of the people and alter his leftist agenda towards the middle, or will he simply look for new ways to jam things through?
Many believe that we might get some clues as to what the president is up to by what he will say in his upcoming State of the Union address. I, for one, do not believe that President Obama is going to change course, no matter what he says in his speech. Nevertheless, I plan to watch the State of the Union. But the way I figure it, as long as I am going to watch, I may as well provide myself some entertainment.
Back in the fifties, there was a television game show called "You Bet Your Life," starring Groucho Marx. In a segment of the show, Groucho would interview a contestant, and if he or she happened to say the "secret word," a papier-mâché duck would be dropped on a string from above and the contestant would "win an extra hundred bucks."
When the president gives his speech, I am going to play "secret word" -- or in this case, "secret phrase." The secret phrase is "back from the brink." If the president says my secret phrase in his speech, I am going to have myself a laugh and imagine a papier-mâché duck dropping on a string from above and dangling in front of the president's startled face before the joint session of Congress.
Why "back from the brink"? Truth is, President Obama has already used this phrase on a few occasions, and it irked me every time I heard it. In each instance, he has used the phrase to imply that if it were not for him and the Democrat Congress passing the Recovery Act, we would all be goners -- that they personally "pulled this economy back from the brink."
This is what I call playing the "we owe the president big time" card. In other words, he saved our skins and we owe a life debt to him. This often-used storyline has been around long before the President ever adopted it. Here are a few examples:
"You have saved my life; I'll give you whatever you want."
-Prince Edward to Miles Hendon, The Prince and the Pauper
"I owe my life to you and offer you my friendship."
-Captain Ramballe to Pierre Bezvkhov, War and Peace
"Little enough for the man that saved my life."
-Gomer to Andy, Andy Griffith Show; Andy Saves Gomer
"I give you these ponies, but I owe you a life."
-Younger Bear to Little Big Man, Little Big Man
"I never did thank you for saving my life."
-Lieutenant Dan to Forrest Gump, Forrest Gump
If our President chooses to play his clever "we owe the president big time" card, recognize it for exactly what it is: pure fiction. The president never pulled us "back from the brink." It was by claiming that we were in dire peril that he was able get his failed legislation through. If we were truly on the brink, why were so many earmarks loaded onto the Recovery Act, and why has so much of the money yet to be spent?

Obama will not change.. I believe that he cannot change, nor would those who voted for him want him to change.. He's a Marxist-a Leninist. He has never been a centrist or a moderate in anything that he's done. He has never been bi-partisan, and he's never been transparent about his agenda and his legislation. He has lied so many times that I don't believe a word that comes out of his teleprompter-guided mouth.
Bear in mind that, yes, many people are unsatisfied with the way he's performed in his first year in office, but you can be sure that a great number of those who are disgruntled are so because Obama hasn't been Marxist enough for them! He hasn't giving the blacks the payday that many of them thought they were finally getting with Obama, he hasn't given the crimigrants citizenship, he hasn't increased welfare payments and made it easier for them (although he did make it so that 50% of the people in America pay no income taxes).
Obama will pander to the Independents and Republicans on how they can all work together, but more likely he'll try to energize his rabid base-the base that got him elected and wept during his inauguration.. Those moonbats are just dumb enough to believe his words, even after he's lied to them time and time again and gone back on promise after promise.. The Messiah's empty words will still resonate with those loons, and he'll probably get verbal and print fellatio from the various media sources afterward..Obama-if you're being run out of town, get out in front and pretend that it's a parade!!!

He won't mention; pickup trucks, tea parties, tea baggers, tort reform, strengthening our military and nuclear defenses, drilling for more oil, easing up on environmental regulations for businesses.
