Highlights from Obama’s State of the Union address –with commentary
Examiner.com ^ | 1/26/2010 | Joe Alfieri

The race for the presidential election began last night with the address before Congress by prospective candidate Barack Obama, billed by the White House as a State of the Union address. For those who could not, or perhaps chose, not to endure it, we present here selected highlights, with clarifying commentary in italics, as a public service. After all, it’s always a pleasure to hear the views of my good friend Sotero.

Amid all the noise and passion and rancor of our public debate, [the tragedy in] Tucson reminded us that no matter who we are or where we come from, each of us is a part of something greater - something more consequential than party or political preference. Which is why I mention it here, to score political points, and make it a part of politics rather than the actions of a crazed young man.

At stake right now is not who wins the next election - after all, we just had an election. And my butt still hurts from the kicking we got. At stake is whether new jobs and industries take root in this country or somewhere else. Somewhere that will fund my next campaign, or pay for my retirement, or exile.

It's whether the hard work and industry of our people is rewarded. Or taken by the government and given out like candy.

I figure the highlight was Obummer leaving the House floor to rush back and get in a game of hoops. The speech sounded like all the others he has given. Even the Rats thought it stunk.
