River Stones 1/26/2011

I watched the State of the Union address last night. Obama sounded positive and presidential. So why did I feel like I was sold down the river?



  1. Because he's not able to do what he really wants to do. Remember Jimmy Carter? He didn't play ball with any of them and he didn't get to do anything. Obama is smart, he has done all they are going to allow him to do.

  2. Maybe you expect too much from the State of the Union message. The media talking heads have a lot to do with making it seem more important than it is. The President isn't really talking to us, the masses. It's not supposed to be a "stemwinder", just a report to Congress, setting out the President's agenda, without a lot of details.

  3. I don't know, Kay. Only you could tell. It was definitely an attempt to appease and still leave us with a sense of hope. His speech writers and PR people are masterful. I still think we need to cut him some slack to prove himself.
