Remember Rebekah Erler, President Obama’s premiere “everywoman” success story from last night’s State of the Union address? The one whose family inspired the leader of the free world to stand up for the common man by…raising their taxes, or something?

As it turns out, Rebekah isn’t just an inspiration. She’s an operative.

Rebekah has been used before by the White House to tout its controversial fiscal policies. Last summer, President Obama spent a well-publicized day with her, taking in “real America” and picking up talking points about the excessively nice people up in Minnesota.

Though all of this, the White House failed to mention one important detail: Rebekah is a former Democratic campaign...

In last night’s State of the Union address, President Obama made a lot of promises.

Next week, President Obama will stand before a joint session of Congress and deliver remarks on the state of the union—and he’s bringing some friends along for the ride.

From the President’s weekly address cum SOTU preview:

I didn’t watch the State of the Union Address.

Some grassroots activists in Chicago did. Paul McKinley is in the video.

They were not happy, because they know Obama from Chicago. And they are not part of the machine.

ok to use screen grab

I didn’t watch Obama’s State of the Union address last night.  Unlike prior years where I had live feeds and extensive coverage.

Instead, I listened to IN-A-GADDA-DA-SOTU.

I did peek at Twitter a couple of times, but not long enough to turn into a pillar of salt.

Reading the headlines and tweets today, there...

Just like the Rubio speech, a very good job.

Unfortunately, I could not find it on a channel last night, so I didn’t see it until this morning.

Instead of watching the Lincoln Of Our Time give his 573rd Gettysburg Address-like speech, I watched the Westminster Kennel Club dog show.

Trust me, I made the right choice.

I did watch Marco Rubio, who gave a fine speech, and who took a sip of water during his speech and thereby proved how vapid and...

Also, I can’t wait for the warm welcome Chief Justice Roberts gets this time, now that he cast the deciding vote in favor of Obamacare.
