After putting the kid to bed I caught the latter part of the State of the Union. Good combative speech, I generally liked it. I would have enjoyed more humility in the mention of our partnerships with other countries, we’re not actually in charge of the world it turns out. But I do enjoy a feisty speech.
And the Republican response? I liked the theme, a loyal opposition is critical and Mitch Daniels started off well. However, “As a loyal opposition, who put patriotism and national success ahead of party or ideology or any self-interest.” Oh, is that what threatening default on the debt was, causing economic uncertainty for months, the national interest? Sorry Mitch, had to laugh you off the stage at that point.
