SOTU 2012

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.
