State of the Union 2010

Good speech overall, but: I wish the president hadn’t saved his best moments for the end. I’m also a little disappointed he went down the path of using that occasional “peeved” tone. Granted, it’s no secret that I have an affinity for snarkiness, but I think speeches before joint sessions of Congress and the entire free world are probably best kept at a level that can’t be easily construed as sarcastic or condescending.

Eh. I don’t regret my 2008 vote for Barack Obama, but I expect to see better from him and Congress. I’m particularly interested to see how far the spending freeze will go.

I’m cautiously optimistic. Maybe not so “Yes We Can” as 2008, perhaps more along the lines of “Yes, Maybe We Can, If We Can Get Out Of Our Own Damned Way.”
