SOTU: The night of magical thinking

Orange County Register
by staff

01/27/10

President Barack Obama’s first State of the Union address answered the big question pundits were asking resoundingly. In the face of setbacks and growing opposition, in the face of the cap-and-trade energy bill being considered effectively dead, in the face of the loss of a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, in the face of increasing opposition to the health-insurance reform proposal that has yet to take final shape, would the president modulate his agenda to take account of a political climate that has changed radically since he took office a year ago, or would he double-down on the program of increasing the size, scope and responsibility of government? He chose to double-down… One might view this as admirable determination to stick by a program, or one might view it as stubbornness, defiance, even, dare we say it, a touch of arrogance...

I will give you a new jobs bill: green jobs, subsidized speedy trains, hand-outs for small business, tax credits for big business.’ And then Congress applauds itself for spending more of your money. But we already have an idea of what this will really do: enrich accountants and tax lawyers. We’ve seen it in those stimulus ‘tax cuts’ he bragged about...

Tuning out the State of the Union

Washington Examiner
by Gene Healy

01/26/10

Tomorrow night, an embattled President Obama will deliver his 2010 State of the Union. He originally wanted to give it on Feb. 2, but — adding to a string of recent indignities — had to yield after irate ‘Lost’ fans made clear they wouldn’t put up with their season premiere getting pre-empted by a lousy presidential speech. ‘Lost’ is a silly show — a six-year-long ‘Twilight Zone’ episode doomed to end in disappointment. But you can hardly blame Americans for preferring it to the SOTU, a dull and tacky spectacle that celebrates our retreat from limited, constitutional government...
