I said I wasn't gonna watch the SOTU, but then I ended up doing it, mostly. A comment from a reader on another blog pretty much captures my thoughts.
This speech tonight reminds me why I voted for Obama. I think the GOP made a ghastly strategic error in choosing to stand only for obstruction, and Obama is driving them into the mat on it tonight. He’s clearly channeling the sane middle in the US electorate. The 47 percent of the nation inside the Fox bubble won’t change their minds. But Obama is reminding the majority that voted for him just why they did.
