Just watched that pathetically lame platitude-filled excuse for a SotU – Jeff was not mentioned or highlighted. A horribly wounded 10-deployment Airborne Ranger – SFC Cory Remsburg was recognized – and received the ONLY long Standing O of the night. For his part, Obama filled 65 minutes with lame half-truths, erroneous 'facts' and outright lies. The funniest was claiming that man-made climate change “is a FACT” - on the same day we have an artic cold wave reaching New Orleans. Obama looks like he's on drugs...

Hats off to Cory Remsburg! ---> Mr 0 did his part for "climate change" with that sorry recycled speech. ---> No longer should ANYONE expect the "earth to heal", the deficit to really be cut, the middle class to be better off, health care to be affordable, ... $10.10 per hour does not lift anyone out of poverty, he is a dolt! ... just a dolt doing his time. Pathetic!

Anybody else notice that Deval Patrick and Obama delivered nearly IDENTICAL speeches last night? Yes, there is a vast Socialist Conspiracy!

It's very simple guys, blame who you will but ... war is simply the unfolding of miscalculations.

Not always Anna. Count Alfred von Schlieffen, Chief of the Kaiser's General Staff, spent the last 17 years of his life planning in finite detail the twin attacks on France and Russia which started WWI. Then in 1938-39 – the pre-Obama corporal spent over a year plotting to attack first Poland, then Russia. Yes, you ~ might ~ say both miscalculated...
