I can honestly say that this is the first State of the Union address I’ve witnessed where the rebuttal was full of more lies than the actual address. There were two things I found slightly faulty with the address, and Daniels flat-out lied to me like ten times. I rolled my eyes at the mention of Steve Jobs (which was a really bad lie with absolutely no fact checking AT ALL).
I don’t know why people want Mitch Daniels to run for President. He’s clearly a puppet – and a bad one at that – of the privilaged. Even the GOP people in his own state don’t like him, since he keeps putting his profile in the lime light when the state’s unemployment is higher than it has ever been. Daniels kept looking around like a rat in a cage, and I found his confidence rather lacking.
At least Obama had been mostly positive and more confident in his speech.
Whatever the case, the GOP at large has done a piss poor job of convincing me to vote for them this election. I’ll probably sit this one out now. Unless Newt Gingrich somehow wins the Primary race, in which I will vote for Obama just on principle (that I can say that I voted against that lunatic who wrecked the country).
