State of the Union

Post by LooseGoose on 2018-01-27, 11:01

Who knows what Trump will say??

But at least America has this:

On A Ledge Somewhere @LedgeSomewhere 8m8 minutes ago
New liberal star Joe Kennedy III will give the Democrats' rebuttal to the State of the Union. He'll mainly denounce the wealthy, elitism, dynasties, nepotism, unfair inheritances, Massachusetts corruption, Prohibition bootlegging, family compounds, and hypocrisy.

I can't imagine having to sit through the racist, bigoted sexual predator attempting to read a phone book. Much less trying to ramble through a string of monosyllabic grunts designed to appeal to his knuckle -dragging base.

America is a stupid country.

If it’s cause a Kennedy then I think you should give the guy a listen. He’s a solid dude.

Hell yes, so many accomplishments - inherited $20M or so, Peace Corps, UN, managed a Senate Campaign, District Attorney - elected to US Congress. It's not his fault he was stuck with that name in Massachusetts but he's overcome it all.

He's a decent enough kid but IF he had an (R) after his name many of the same actors in here loving him would hate his ass. Tribes.

Side note-

If there’s nothing else trump accomplishes (and for republicans there might not be) he has accomplished making somebody like me fully away of who the fuck Joe Kennedy is. Why do I even know that?? Had Hillary won would I know him? Prolly not frankly. But his insistence on attention and making everyone constantly aware of politics in a way that they weren’t before might have some serious effects that republicans didn’t anticipate. 

(Note- if you are so inclined as to look up my posts from 2016 you’ll find me saying “trump winning is the worst thing that could happen for republicans” and I stand by it.)

Tbh I saw him talk about Obamacare repeal in like July or so, and sent it to dwags as proof that there were young democrats to be excited about, and his last name never really occurred to me. 

You won’t believe that but who cares

I tried to find it but I can’t. Here’s how it went in like July.

Dwags- “there are no young democrats it’s just Biden everything sucks”
Me- “here’s a video of joe Kennedy talking about health care and there are other guys too”
Dwags- “oh wow cool that’s better”

Oh. The real amazing part of that is going to be watching cable news after and hearing about how presidential he sounds.

If it’s good it’s forgotten about the next day if it’s bad then we skewer him. It’s the internet age now roc. Everyone will have their own response for as long as they want.

The response is a platform that the parties use to see how their potential "face of the party" folks play to a national audience. Remember how Bobby Jindal was the Rep darling until he did the Mr. Rogers singsong response? It is actually important. Speaking of the internet age, Travis.  It's interesting that you assume I've never heard him talk or researched him.  I have.  It's the wrong direction for the party to go if they want to tap into the energy on the left.  Hint: they don't.  They want moderates and their message is basically trumpism with a little social justice sprinkled in.  The majority of us are still getting screwed over royally by the rich under the Democrat's Better Deal Better Pizza.  Fuck off with your assumptions bro.

Part of it is finding someone willing to deliver the address.

Everyone remembers how Jindal tanked on what many thought was a career on the same trajectory that Nikki Haley's has taken.  

I'm sure Democrats asked others.  Those others knew the Koch's were going to spend big bucks to preserve the GOP legislative majorities they saw no upside to be the one to go infront of the camera.  They've learned their lesson.  The longer you are in the crosshairs the more hit you take.

My assumption, roc, is based off of you posting “all it is is a kennedy” two different Times. Frankly I think you’re lying. And also Jindal and Rubio are exactly what I’m talking about when I say it does no good. No one can improve themselves, only fuck up, and it’s just a waste of space. 

Speaking of wastes of space, the state of the union! Here’s how’s it’s gonna go

Trump- reads coherently without drooling on himself
Cable news talking head 1- he is sooooo presidential now
Cable news talking head 2- dear leader I love you
Goose- I love him so much you liberals are so dumb for not loving him
Cable news talking head 3- literallys Gags
Trump tomorrow morning- tweets about Jay Z or some other insane shit and everything goes back to normal.

Anyway I said ok Roc. I believe you and totallllllly don’t think you just saw the name and spazzed then acted like you actually know anything about it because you didn’t want to say “yeah it’s just his name that’s it.”. Totttttalllllllyyyyyy don’t think that. Rest assured.

You accuse me of being anti-Kennedy just because and you use the fact that I didn't immediately back up my statement with facts as reasoning for claiming I know nothing about him. I show you that your initial statement was blatant fanboyism with no facts either and you don't even see the irony of calling me out for exactly what you did.

Okay Travis.

Okay Travis.
I don’t think you really showed me shit (cause you didn’t.) see, the thing is, I made a casual statement (because like I pointed out to you already no, I haven’t really dug into every single thing about this guy because why the hell would I) but I did casually say “hey, I kinda like him that’s fine.” I think you’re trying to pretend that’s some kind of official proclamation but thats just nonsense. You however definitely merely reacted to his name, which is also fine to just admit cause who really cares about this anyway whatever.

Anyway, oh wise roc, let me ask a more interesting question. Who would you have preferred for this super super important honor? Rule number 1 though- you can’t pick anyone that is acting like they might run for President in 2020 or anyone that logically would.

I don't care who does it.  The party is fractured and the centrists are still driving the train.  It's the message and the Dem strategy that I don't like.

Hey maybe he knocks it out of the park and hits all the right things

I'd like to see him hit hard on Universal Healthcare, workers rights, and closing the wealth gap.  We'll see. From what I've read about him, he appears to toe the line. Hope I'm wrong.
