Barack Obama's state of the union speech was a collection boring generalities. This shouldn't be a surprise, since Obama doesn't have a clue on how to be an effective president. Obama, pissed off that the Supreme Court finally did something to preserve the Constitution, criticized the Court for upholding the 1st Amendment. Democrats stood up and jeered the Court judges who were present for the speech.
Except for a promise to cut deficit spending by less than 1% (starting in 2011), Obama's message was simply "more of the same." He bragged that he "doesn't quit." He will continue his radical agenda regardless of how many Americans oppose it or how many it hurts.
Barack Obama has zero credibility with me. I see him as a historical, significant screw-up, the most radical president of our lifetimes. He is ignorant as hell as to economics, wealth and job creation. Like most radical leftists, he wants to impose his will on the great majority because he knows better than we do how our lives should be run.
Barack Obama is something awful to be endured, like a hurricane, an earthquake or a drought, or maybe the dust storms of the 1930s. There is nothing much we can do except to try and manage the unfolding disaster as best we can, to minimize its effects while waiting for it to end. Once the storm is over we can begin cleaning up the wreckage it has wrought, bury the dead and rebuild. But first, we have to survive.
Two of the best blogger analyses of Obama's speech:
Yid with Lid has the best, doing a fact check of Obama's claims.
Althouse live blogged the speech and adds some funny and pertinent comments as the speech unfoled.
