    I think that was sarcasm.

    I think not.
    I prefer to think is a problem of "run-away dishonesty " .
    But how to deter the scammers ?
    Do you really theres anything worthy in the SOTU? Its absolutely pointless. Very little to do with hatred or fear. No different than Dems saying they same thing of a Republican president. You don't like him, why would you want to listen to him? That is the state of the Presidency today. It is a political position, whose purpose is to do and say things which support a single parties ideology and electability. Again, that goes for BOTH parties. Obama just happens to be President during todays worthless speech.

    And beyond that you can read the frickin transcript and not waste time watching people stand up and cheer every 20 seconds.

    I could NOT watch it, and NOT rely on other sources, and still talk about it. Because its the same speech hes been giving for 5 years.

    Just a bunch of pomp and circumstance really, especially at this point in his presidency, it's practically a lame duck presidency. Maybe he'll address those pressing and urgent problems of obesity and racism.

    Tradition is fine, but the President is going to say that all the accomplishments are his and that the problems of the country are the fault of the Republicans. The Republicans will, in turn, respond that, no, anything good that's happened has been because of them, and that the President is at fault for everything bad.

    Maybe I'm just jaded.

    Reading after the fact takes less time than listening to oratory.

    Really? Damn, I could be missing it now. I'm not sure. I just took a break from taking care of my dogs. It's cold. What the president has to say is the last thing on my mind.
