Not a Clue in the Carload

Obama's State of the Union Was Tantamount to Plagiarism
It would appear that the only president of note whose imprint was absent in Obama’s long awaited and much-anticipated speech was Obama. This was supposed to have been the moment when the nation found out whether he was at the core a Rooseveltian liberal of a Clintonian centrist. What it got was a cut and pasted version of great and not-so-great State of the Union and other addresses of the past.

Your Say

So what? He has already earned his grade. It is an F as in Fail. What can the plagiarism charge do to change that? There is no such thing as F-.

Not so, Obama is now in the Shame Hut, that place saved for those that abase themselves in public.

Fat Man: "There is no such thing as F-." Why not? There is an A-, a B-, a C-. Why not give him F-?

You shouldn't give him an F-. because then he would strive to get an F+, and consider that a rousing success.

The President also told us that the party plans to continue to follow the roadmap, and he unveiled the next project: Lyndon Johnson's 1960's era “Cooperative Federalism”.

Here's how he described it in the SOTU Address:
"Let me take this one step further. We shouldn’t just give our people a government that’s more affordable. We should give them a government that’s more competent and more efficient. We can’t win the future with a government of the past. (Applause.)

"We live and do business in the Information Age, but the last major reorganization of the government happened in the age of black-and-white TV....."

I would bet that this project is a primary reason that General Electric's Jeffrey Immelt has been brought on board.

It does not strike me as a project that will benefit the nature of our American government.

Jewel, you are right. I wasn't thinking.
