President Obama delivered his State of the Union speech last night, and I was impressed if not riveted. Certain suggestions are obvious -- we need to think ahead. All the transportation suggestions make perfect sense to anyone who has ever been out of the country; those who haven't cannot see how much better the European infrastructure is. All the solar stuff makes perfect sense. Seeing the reaction of the three Caucasian generals as the prez spoke of Don't Ask Don't Tell was hilarious -- old dinosaurs. Watching Jackass John McCain applaud the earmark veto threat was hilarious; what a phony chameleon. These suggestions are no-brainers, but the economics more complicated.
When I heard that Michele Bachmann would deliver the Tea Party Caucus response, I turned off the TV and went to bed. She is a lying fool.
