Tonight's Presidential Address to Congress wasn't officially a "State of the Union" address, but it may has well have been. And it is the first speech of its sort that I've been able to watch in eight long years where I didn't cringe. Whatever you think of the content of the address, one must admit that it is a nice change to have a President who is so well spoken. I even noted that "preventive" and "nuclear" were said correctly!
The content--to me--was pretty good. Necessarily dire, while at the same time hopeful. And the very clear point that people making $250,000 or less per year would be getting a tax cut makes it difficult for right-wingers to complain with any authority that taxes are going up. Because that would require them to be the champions of the rich, or at least the well-off.
Anyway, you can decide for yourselves beyond that short commentary.
