RNC’s new video “Familiar Rhetoric, Failed Record”. If you have not seen the video then you should check it out. The video already has over 800,000 views in less than a week. In the video we see clips from the 2011 State of the Union (and a few from the 2010) that are eerily similar to what President Obama said in his 2012 State of the Union last week. Some of the clips are the exact same from year to year.
The rhetoric has not changed, mostly due to the inability to act. Rhetoric without action is frustrating and annoying for the American people. The rhetoric in the speeches range from demands like when he ordered the colleges to cut their tuitions to ideas like fixing infrastructure in the country. What stumps me most is that of all the politicians in the country, no one sounds like their are in a perpetual campaign state more than him. Every speech sounds like he is still trying to become president rather than be president (although the issue of whether he wants to be in the office or just be running for the office is a whole different issue).
Of course, we are talking about a president here that talks about creating jobs but when a chance to create thousands of jobs with just one project, hides behind bureaucracy. It only make sense that there would be three years of talking about the same issues over and over again without stepping up and getting things done.
One of the biggest factors that this video shines the light on is the lack of originality by his writers and staff. The administration needs to take a look in the mirror and reevaluate how they are communicating to the constituency. More and more of this same old rhetoric during the election could be the main reason for their exit.
The video is well done and perfect example of that we have a president that is fine with spewing out rhetoric but comes up short on action and leadership. Hopefully we won’t have to sit through another one let alone four.
