ATR Presents Obama/State of the Union Bingo

Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) once again presents these handy Bingo cards (see sample above, there are four other versions available) which you may use to check off terms and phrases likely to be used during President Obama's State of the Union address tonight.
 
ATR also provides a handy key for what the terms and phrases really mean, here's a sample:


Investment – Spending taxpayer money on Obama re-election constituencies such as government employee unions, teachers' guilds, and big-city political machines.

Energy – Something that flows from good intentions, government programs, "stimulus" spending but not pipelines.

Exports – That trade – and only that trade – acceptable to union bosses.

Compromise – Tax hikes.

Sacrifice – Tax hikes.

Bipartisan – Tax hikes.

Fair or Fair Share – Tax hikes.

Balanced – Tax hikes.

Obstructionists – House Republican lawmakers who have actually passed a budget – NOT the Senate Democrats who have refused to pass a budget for 1,000 days.

Wall Street – 1. Where your IRA and 401(k) live. 2. A bauble to distract you from noticing my bailout of Fannie and Freddie.

Jobs – "You want to find work on the Keystone XL pipeline? Tough luck – I've got a campaign to run."

Missing "let me be clear" - here comes some obfuscation and lies.

What about Warren Buffett? Bet his name will get mentioned at least a couple of times.

Methinks: "Fun!"

Yeah, but I have to listen to the speech in order to play. It's not really free.

Ron H.,

You're right.

The key is to take a shot for every time Dear Leader has turned up his nose at the American people and shown us his nostrils since ascending to power. By the time his speech starts, you won't even know who you are any more. Then it'll be fun.

Methinks,

"The key is to take a shot for every time Dear Leader has turned up his nose at the American people and shown us his nostrils since ascending to power. By the time his speech starts, you won't even know who you are any more. Then it'll be fun."

That would do the trick, but I don't think I can afford that many shots before the speech starts.

I've given up watching Obama speeches. It annoys my wife that I keep asking: "What the hell is he talking about?", because she doesn't know either.

Now I just wait for those really smart newscasters to tell me what I missed.

Before the bingo game begins, a couple question on rules and decorum:

(1) If one’s bingo card loses, and since their can not be any losers, does a bailout form appear on the back of the bingo card -or- is the bingo card a predestined winner or loser [third party is picking bingo winners and losers]?

(2) If one’s card wins, is one winnings reduced by a required politico contribution as the price of a “win”?

(3) Can one apply for a DOE loan in order to receive additional bingo cards?

(4) If one should happen to win on two different cards, would this be consider a “fair share” or a “non-fair share”?

(5) If one has been practicing and training all year for this bingo event, is that consider an unequal opportunity?

(6) Is the grand prize a round of golf with President Obama and does this round of golf include a satellite uplink to the NORAD computers to add up Mr. Obama’s total score…..on the front nine.

Lame. This could have been funny. Go back to the drawing board.
