Hate of the Union

Tonight is George W. Bush's final state of the union address. I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to updates on these vital initiatives from past SotUs:

- AIDS research (2007)

- banning gay marriage once and for all (2006)

- the capture of Osama bin-Laden (2002, 2003)

- Civilian Reserve Corps! (2007)

- how great it is to have free elections in Palestine (2005)

- how our economy is roaring back (2005)

- man-animal hybrids (2006)

- manned mission to Mars! (2004)

- Middle East peace initiative (2006, 2007)

- stopping those evil North Koreans in their tracks (2002)

- switching to alternative energy (2006, 2007)

- the whereabouts of Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction (2003)

Man, if he doesn't tell us how he's cracked down on the manimal program at Johns Hopkins, I'll be sorely disappointed.

I just cannot bear to hear/see him one more time. I'll await your report, mon general.

- the capture of Osama bin-Laden (2002, 2003)

this is a real fork in my eye. afghanistan is smaller than texas and...okay, no, i don't care about the size of afghanistan, how in the fuck haven't we found him?! seriously!

admittedly, some of my outrage, at this moment, can be attributed to the fact that nato general john craddock is on the diane rehm show right now, talking about the need for MORE nato troops in afghanistan. what in the hell?

he had a whole bit about addressing poverty and AIDS in Africa too. i almost got excited for a minute that year (maybe 2 years ago? i think it was in this term), and by the end of the speech i realized that what he said was too progressive and flat-out ludicrous. sure enough, the subject was not addressed much more than that.

I think you forgot the network of clinical centers he said he was going to set up to solve the health care crisis (although I can't remember if he spoke about it in a State of the Union address or not.) And how he was going to do something about steroids.

It's almost sad, looking at all the projects he promised but never delivered on. Bush is like the endlessly-procrastinating novelist of presidents.

HAHA!

I guess, given how the projects Bush does follow through on turn out, we should all be grateful.

When did he talk about Man-Animal hybrids?

I guess lists like that are what happen when you let your speechwriters just include anything they think sounds good, like, say, the phrase Axis of Evil. Which, if I recall correctly, just popped into the speechwriter's head and was never checked with the State Department.

Sam Seaborn and Toby Ziegler would never have done such things.

I heard a rumor that he's going to use the opportunity to endorse Ron Paul.
