I’ve been watching Obama’s State of the Union address. Beats me why. It’s more of a performance than a speech. Reading from a teleprompter a cliche-ridden speech that’s been scripted by specialists in the art of psychological manipulation while pretending to be folksy and in touch with regular people is, I have to admit, something people with real consciences could not do.

Our feet planted firmly in today but our eyes cast forward to tomorrow?

Spare me.

I guess the man has a certain kind of talent. But it doesn’t include being president.
