I’ll leave it to others to do the fact check. Here’s my first impression of the State of the Union speech tonight:
This was a small speech. A lot of petty pot shots, including at the Supreme Court. Very Nixonian, in that regard.
The verbiage was anything but soaring. The joke about root canal must have been off-teleprompter.
I really don’t think he gets what is happening in Massachusetts and across this country. He is living in a bubble.
Obama seemed like someone lost at sea, grasping at everything. This was not the Obama of the campaign, because the campaign stump speeches cannot work anymore.
The blame Bush theme is tired.
The nation is tired of hearing these speeches and the whining.
I’m tired. Good night.
