I think Harry Reid's long yawn captured the essence of this speech. Too long and rambling and too short on substance.
Obama is still campaigning but for what? He couldn't pass his plans with a super majority in both houses and now is warning the Republicans to go along with him?
He's still pushing for climate change legislation even as more revelations of fraud and deceit leak out of the IPCC and NASA stonewalls FOIA requests.
He attacks the Supreme Court like some angry child, throwing 230 years of decorum out the window. Sam Alito responded to the attack in this video but he could as easily have made the same comment "not true" about the entire speech.
His national security segment was late, unfocused and reduced to a statement about gays in the military as though he's unaware that most people are questioning his administration's handling of the Fort Hood shooting, the Christmas Day bomber and the move of GITMO military trials to criminal courts in NYC.
He calls for openness and transparency as though we're supposed to forget that he's spent the last 6 months behind locked doors with Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and a bunch of lobbyists for pharma and insurance companies.
There has to be a way out of this nightmare of a presidency. Let's take a closer look at that birth certificate. Maybe that's where Hillary Clinton really was last night.
