Live-Blogging SOTU 2012
If you’re interested in my liberal take on Obama’s speech, see here.
Suffice it to say that while I generally agree with most of his various policy proposals, I think it’s by far the worst State of the Union address he’s given. There’s no vision, no philosophy, nothing. Expect possibly for populist economic nationalism. And that’s just delusional, a clear refusal to see how the world really works and what America needs to do to get back on its feet.
Of course I’m still an Obama supporter. But this seems like a bunch of focus-grouped lines stitched together randomly and without much purpose other than to state the president’s positions on some key issues. It’s not even the opening salvo of Obama’s 2012 campaign, as some expected.
