I thought that BHO’s third SOTU installment worked best as humorless stand-up. In between victory laps for ventilating Osama, Obama basically said nothing, with a few breaks to blame Buuuuush.

The GOP response in an Indiana war memorial was better, but not as much as it should have been. Mitch Daniels was basically Mitt Romney, without so much Tom Brokaw. I don’t want to hear about the ‘safety net’. Social Security and Medicare are cancer. Thus, we can be moderate in how we treat the patient, and not try to kill the society as we purge the cancer. But purge it We. Absolutely. Must. The safety net is neither affordable nor a federal task, and the GOP would sound orders of magnitude less idiotic if it would strive for liberty instead of accommodation with the cancer.

Which brings us to the Hermanator. He was everything Barack Obama was not: concise, coherent, factual, and recognizably American in his thinking. What shone through his remarks was a lack of bitterness at his despicable treatment from the media, and a sincere devotion to the country and improving the situation. Truly a blessing of an American.
