Pelosi Announces State Of The Union; Is Biden Ready?

It’s official – Nancy Pelosi has invited Joe Biden to give his State of the Union address.

Last year, the speech which wasn’t actually a “State of the Union” speech was pushed off until April 28th. The Republicans treated it as a State of the Union speech, complete with rebuttal. This year, the speech will be held on March 1st.

Yes, March 1st. The State of the Union has been traditionally held at the end of January, but Nancy Pelosi has announced (in coordination with the White House, obviously) that the speech will be on March 1st. And if you think her tone the last time she wrote an invitation to Biden was bad, just read this.

The text reads:

Dear Mr. President:

Thank you for your bold vision and patriotic leadership which have guided America out of crisis and into an era of great progress, as we not only recover from the pandemic but Build Back Better! Indeed, this past year has been historic: with the life-saving American Rescue Plan, once-in-a-century Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and, soon, the truly transformational Build Back Better Act!”

In that spirit, I am writing to invite you to address a Joint Session of Congress on Tuesday, March 1, to share your vision of the State of the Union.”

Thank you for considering this invitation to speak to the Congress and Country.”

Did… did no one tell Pelosi that Joe Manchin killed the Build Back Better Act back in December? And that there have been zero discussions of reviving the bill since then?

Did Pelosi pay attention to Biden’s “bold vision” and “patriotic leadership” that abandoned THOUSANDS of American citizens and legal residents in Afghanistan last summer?

And speaking of historic, did Pelosi see today’s jobs report? Those are definitely historic.

The Labor Department said in its monthly payroll report released Friday that payrolls in December rose by 199,000, sharply missing the 400,000 jobs forecast by Refinitiv economists. The unemployment rate, which is calculated based on a separate survey, dropped to 3.9% from 4.2% — the lowest level since the pandemic began.”

The labor market had been gaining momentum after a delta-induced slowdown over the summer, but the latest figure represents the second consecutive month of worse-than-expected growth, following upwardly revised gains of 249,000 in November and 648,000 in October. The last time job growth was this slow was in December 2020, when employers cut 306,000 positions.”

“Today’s jobs report is a disappointing bookend to a historic year in the job market,” said Daniel Zhao, senior economist at Glassdoor. “The year ended on a sour note, with job gains slowing even more than in November. New and unpredictable waves of COVID-19 variants threaten to throw the recovery into reverse, showing that we’re still at the mercy of the pandemic.”

Is Joe Biden ready to stay up late on March 1st and talk about his vision for 2022? Well, his speechwriters will be working overtime to spin gold from hay, and depending on the clapping seals on the Democrat side of the aisle to cheer the old man on. The reality is that when Biden is on the spot, he can’t give a logically coherent answer.

Wow. So, COVID is now Schrödinger’s cat? It’s both here to stay and not here to stay? Everyone feel reassured about President Brandon’s grasp of the issues right now? Conventional wisdom implies that pushing the speech off until March 1st is due to the Omicron wave, but the reality is that Biden needs a ton of time to practice the speech. And even then, we could have a teleprompter snafu.

Yeah, his speechwriters are going to be going over what gets loaded into the teleprompter with a fine-tooth comb to avoid any potential Ron Burgundy moments. Mark your calendars, everyone, because President Grandpa is going to be wheeled out for a speech, and Nancy Pelosi will be putting in her happy dentures for this one.
