Today's Question: Did you watch the State of the Union address last night? Why or why not? And if you did, what did you think?
We did watch, though I will confess that I had forgotten all about it until we happened to flip through our TV Guide to see what was on. I'm always pretty ambivalent about the SOTU address (regardless of who is in office), because it so often feels like blowing smoke to me. The president can seemingly promise whatever they want with little follow up or repercussions for not following through.
That said, I did appreciate that Obama made pointed digs at himself, Democrats, Republicans, AND the Supreme Court. The fact of the matter is that none of the political parties or institutions in the US are perfect, and I appreciated the fact that a political figure would give us some straight talk about why nothing seems to get done in DC.
What did you think?
