Cagle Post: New State of the Union, Same Old Lies
Today, President Obama will give his sixth State of the Union Address to a joint session of Congress and the American people. The text of this speech might be new, but the pattern of deliberately lying and deceiving the public is more of the same. Here’s what to keep a look out for in tonight’s speech that the liberal press will praise him for and “report” on, and the reality of what the President is actually saying.
The President will explain his new push for Executive Action, his Administration’s plan to bypass Congress in order to enact President Obama’s otherwise unpassable pet projects. This announcement is coming on the heels of a new poll showing that 63 percent of Americans have ‘no confidence’ in President Obama to make the right decision. Expect the mainstream media to give President Obama a complete pass on this plan to change policy unilaterally, and please just take a moment with me to imagine the media’s reaction if a Republican President were to announce such an initiative.
