“John F. Kennedy,” then quote Kennedy, then blah, blah, blah. Pause…look around, turn and resume speaking.
“After a decade of grinding war” the fighting is over because of me.
“6 million new jobs” have been created, because of me.
There are more “American cars” and less “foreign oil,” because of me.
“Our housing market is healing, our stock market is rebounding, and consumers, patients and homeowners enjoy stronger protections than ever before.”
…Because of me.
“Corporate profits” are up, but “wages and incomes have barely budged.” Profits — all me, wages and income that’s their fault.
Talk a little about the budget, fake spending reductions and real tax increases.
“Republicans, business leaders and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in Washington as “the sequester,” are a really bad idea.” Don’t mention it was my idea.
Throw in the straw man on defense cuts.
Make a false argument about starving “seniors” and “working families” to pay for their spending. Propose “balance.’
Talk about raising taxes, but call it “getting rid of tax loopholes and deductions for the well-off and well-connected.”
More spending, but call it “job-creating investments.”
Green energy = “control [of] our own energy future.”
“[F]or the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change.”
Green energy = jobs.
“I will direct my Cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.”
Propose a new department for taking oil profits and spending them green. China, China, China.
Talk about new “roads and bridges,” and “high-speed rail and internet; high-tech schools and self-healing power grids.”
Propose a new program for infrastructure, mention bridges again.
Talk about forcing mortgage companies to refinance homes at lower rates. “What are we waiting for? Take a vote, and send me that bill.”

Dang, wish I had know he was going to post this. It would have prevented my ears from bleeding last night listening to Obama whistling through his teeth and using that pretend breathy “I’m concerned” voice.
