I didn’t plan to watch. But I did… I felt dirty afterwards. It was so partisan, full of lies… This guy is such a narcissist. He still is trying to convince people he saved jobs when we’ve lost millions and the unemployment rate is in double digits.
I really can’t say more now… I am still so disturbed by Obama’s lack of respect for the office of the presidency.
UPDATE, by Mark Noonan: Anyone who wants an alternative to Obama’s blather can do no better than Governor McDonnell’s response:
The circumstances of our time demand that we reconsider and restore the proper, limited role of government at every level.
Without reform, the excessive growth of government threatens our very liberty and prosperity.
In recent months, the American people have made clear that they want government leaders to listen and act on the issues most important to them.
We want results, not rhetoric. We want cooperation, not partisanship.
There is much common ground.
All Americans agree, we need a health care system that is affordable, accessible, and high quality.
But most Americans do not want to turn over the best medical care system in the world to the federal government…
UPDATE II, by Mark Noonan: Uh, Barry, you shouldn’t be ripping the Supreme Court during a SOTU speech while they’re all sitting there – ’cause now you got another “you lie” moment.
UPDATE III, by Mark Noonan: If you’d like to see how a good President does it.
