17. That meme is being used to refute the fact that so many here predicted
that during this speech, Obama was definitely, absolutely, positively, going to announce MAJOR CUTS to Social Security and Medicare.

Every article from every unknown website that had an array of "unnamed sources" was posted here as PROOF POSITIVE of the impending announcement of these MAJOR CUTS.

Of course this prediction has again been found to be false. I say again because the same predictions were made in the days leading up to the State of the Union, and they were wrong then too.

The folks who make up the fake outrage machine around here can't admit they were wrong, and so immediately following the speech, they dropped the false prediction, and simply moved on to the "just words" meme.
