I never thought he was ready for office, but I am sick and tired of Obama bashing. His State of the Union address this week was one of the best I’ve seen any president deliver — but perhaps not for a good reason.
No mind-numbing laundry list of staff-manufactured legislative proposals, largely because he can’t get them passed through a GOP-controlled Congress he never learned how to leverage.
Still, it was nice to see him lean into the podium and show some skin, get personal and bring some passion to the case. Had he done that from the beginning he might be better off.
