Final SOTU Part I

leave a comment »

Jonah Goldberg  didn’t enjoy  the SOTU any more than I did.   He also caught more departures from the  prepared text  than I did,  probably because as a professional he made himself listen more carefully than I could force myself to.

The Daily Signal did some  fact-checking  on the speech,  and  —  surprise! —  His Oneness was not entirely truthful on all points.   Breitbart went for something  more than  the lowest hanging fruit in its fact-checking.

I’m not certain that it was Obama’s most boring speech,  as Jon Podhoretz says,  but that may be because I find all of Obama’s speeches boring, utterly predictable collections of straw men,  lecturing,  hectoring,  and whining.

I’ll be updating this post as  I ponder further,  but now I have to go play in the garden,  since cold weather is about to make a return.
