That's the point: That dipshit couldn't have written it. Daddy, maybe, but not the little boy.

Speech writing: It was brought up earlier in this thread, like a cat puking up a hairball, that Eisenhower did just that. But consider the source, it wasn't me.

As for the Constitution not saying what I think it does, well, perhaps you could enlighten us all as to what it really says. And make it good and Authority filled as always. And then we'll all be better able to assess the .. provenance .. of same.

Here's the Wiki link all about it. If you find error here too, perhaps you'd be good enough to correct it .. thoroughly and with much spanking. Of your Mom.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_the_Union

I live to be enlightened by the likes of you, Wildcat, and Listy. Which basically amounts to you, whom I've come to have a certain regard for. Perhaps I was wrong about this. Then there's Wildcat, a right leaning wingnut loudmouth whom I admire for his hunting and fishing skills. I just bet I'll never get an invite for that salmon BBQ he does so well.... Lastly Listy, who is a pussy grabbing fool who has spent way too much time in service of the gubmint floating around with the goddamned fucking USN. He strikes me as a lifer and if that's true, then good for him. He stuck it out and made it pay. BTW-- both sides of my family have a serious history with the USN. That's why I never joined up. They all informed me, to the last man and woman, against it based on their personal experience.

Now then, put on your meanie-beanie and shove that cattle prod right up where the sun don't shine my friend.

Sit on it and spin UmKay?

Show me where, in this:
He shall from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.
it specifies the medium of transfer, the agent of transfer, the manner of transfer, the collector, or even the creator of the form of this information.

"He." Referring to the POTUS.

Not his speech writer, his lackey, his fucking asshole, his pretty boy, his pussy grabbing bitch, his mama or anyone else.

It specifically says He shall do this thing and the He being referred to is the mother fucking POTUS.



It's perfectly clear. :P

You neglect the verb. When one engages in semantics then one must pay attention to the words.

Sort of addresses the rest of your objection. Since your attention has been appropriately directed to the verb, perhaps you can now attend to the questions I raised.

It wouldn't have been more perfect of course, but we'd have known a lot sooner all about GWB and how the job was done when it really wasn't and such.

He was, after all, the 'deciderator', was he not?

I did. Both.

Didn't learn anything I didn't already know.

On the plus side, 1) there were a few moments that were entertaining, and 2) I don't have to take anyone's mangled opinion word about what he said, or did not say.

Otherwise, mostly a waste of time. I needed a break from my work anyway. I can think of worse ways to give my mind a temporary distraction.

For those who are interested to know, it didn't matter to me who actually wrote it.
