January 29, 2002: "The State of Our Union Has Never Been Stronger"

Those are words coming from a man who loves this country. Yes, I miss him.

Now think.

Can you imagine Obama speaking that many words and using the pronoun "I" only twice?

"The One" used it 132 times in his recent Ohio speech.

I remember the speech. And I confess, I got a more than a little misty reading it just now. For eight years our leftist media did all they could to slag this good and decent man. And look what we have in his place. A corrupt machine politician. An empty excuse for a man posing as president.
Yeah, I miss GWB. God bless him.

Bush also used I in the proper context, not as a personal one, but as the President. Run that section through Word and it has only 9% passive sentences and ninth grade level. Low passive voice is generally a sign of clear, concise language.

He always seemed like he'd be a good guy, a lot of fun to hang out with. My wife thought he was really hot. Not so much the hopeless twat who's taken his place.

I remember that SOTU well. It was one of Dubya's best addresses. I started missing him about 30 seconds after The Won took the oath. I'm listening to Obama on the CNN feed. There are many degrees of awfulness and he seems determined to hit them all.

I've always had a weak spot for flyboys.

We've got Fox on.

Muted.

Waiting for Krauthammer to delicately rip him a new one.

Yeah. That'll do.
