I’m going to miss the speech because I have something else to do, but I do want those of you watching the speech to do a couple things as he speaks. Every time Obama says something like “We need to finish what we started” you need to yell out loud “BECAUSE BUSH AND CHENEY DIDN’T.”
It should go something like this:
Obama: I’m asking the Pentagon to send 34,000 additional troops to help secure the region
You: BECAUSE BUSH AND CHENEY DIDN’T.
You get the idea. Bonus points if you do this at a Young Republicans meeting or a 9/12 meet-up.
Next, I want to remind everyone that no analysis of tonight’s speech of Obama will be complete without getting the deep thoughts of Liz Cheney and reading Sarah Palin’s facebook page and twitter feed.
Every time a member of the progressive left is brought on to attack Obama from the left, remind yourself that this is a good thing and might move the Overton window back to the left a little.
And finally, if you see any of the following people on any network other than FOX being asked for their opinion, finish your drink:
