State Of The Union Recap
--Tonight: Obama proposes $10,000 tax credit to offset college costs.
Tomorrow: Average college tuition rises $10,001.
--Saying he hated the bank bailouts but they were necessary to save our economy is bullshit. Banks still are not lending money to businesses, and enabling them to do so was the rationale for the bailout. Now Obama wants to give more money to banks so they can lend money to businesses.
--A proposal to build more nuclear energy plants actually makes sense. I'm shocked he had it in him.
--His tie made me sad Christmas is over and peppermint-stick ice cream won't be available for another ten months. Everything else he said made me sad for potentially more important reasons.
REPUBLICAN RESPONSE BONUS: To demonstrate the GOP's longstanding commitment to women and minorities, they scored a twofer by posing a black woman onscreen just behind Virginia's governor Bob McDonald.
