When I was in the service, my wife and I were stationed in the Philippines and traveled throughout the Far East. On one trip we traveled to Japan and spent a night in Nikko.
Now Nikko is famous as the spot where the "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" monkeys are located. With tonight's SOTU address by BHO, I am reminded of these monkeys who placed their hands over their eyes, their ears and their mouth.
For the past year, the Obama Administration has emulated these monkeys. Moving ahead with his agenda, it made no difference what Americans were thinking or saying, because Obama and the congressional democrats were not listening.
At first, they relied on the MSM to belittle those who disagreed with the direction the Democrats were trying to take us. Later, the hands seem to slip off the mouth and high level Democrats from both the House and Senate began to insult the protesters. Finally, after encountering them at their townhall meetings, they simply made a point of ducking them. They were doing everything they could not to listen to anyone who disagreed with the mandate they felt they had.
Well after the November elections in New Jersey and Virginia and the January special election in Massachusetts it is apparent that the American people have dug in their heels and said, "No more."
It will be interesting to see if the monkey's hands have slipped off their ears.
