President Barack Obama is continuing to deliver his annual and last State of the Union Address to a joint session of Congress. I am doing my best to pay attention, to keep from yawning and dozing off to sleep.
Not one single word about the 10 sailors captured by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
Not one single word about releasing $150 billion to the rogue regime as reward for signing a nuclear treaty though still breaking the rules.
The President just concluded his speech saying our union is strong.
CNN is praising the speech.
Did Wolf Blitzer and Jake Tapper listen to the same speech I did?
There was a good rebuttal of much of what Republican wannabes who want to take over the Oval Office are saying on the campaign trail. Some of which I agreed that the GOP candidates are painting a much direr picture than the reality.
The President did mount a bit of defense for the Affordable Care Act and how it is succeeding which was expected.
Much of what the President said was nothing new, but a reiteration of some of what he would like to get done before he must pack his bags.
Other than giving Vice President Joe Biden a new assignment to find a cure for cancer, there was little if anything to actually inspire.
The applause was much more limited than in times past. There were no prolonged ovations disrupting the flow.
From the Cornfield, good thing expectations were low for viewers this evening. Those that missed the speech, missed nothing.
If the American sailors are not released by morning, how outraged with the American people be?
