State of the Union

I managed to stay awake for the State of the Union speech; no small thing when you normally are asleep by 9 p.m. or so.  My first thought was that it was a hard sell on a lot of new plans ranging from climate change to minimum wage to voting rights but not overly political.  For instance, a lot of what President Obama pitched included “we can do this” in the phrasing, and he seemed to go out of his way to include the fact that a lot of what he was proposing had, at some point, been endorsed by the Republicans.

All in all, I’ll give him an A- for style, a B+ for substance, and since there were no strange outbursts from the gallery, an A- for decorum.

Here’s the full transcript via the Washington Post.

One bark on “State of the Union

  1. You know, I actually like Joe Biden, but come on…it’s his fourth State of the Union as Vice President. He has to know he’s on camera the entire time, and yet he did everything up there but floss and pick his nose.
