Another favorite trick, played by both the media and the politicos . A question will be asked "When did you first find out the disaster happened? The politico will answer " the secretary of disasters never met with me". After this the media will report "Politico denies knowledge of the disaster". Is this what was really said? No. You see the politico rarely has to resort to a lie because he doesn't have to. The media is happy facilitating and the public is to dense to listen with their own ears.

The New York Times called the SOTU “making the case for government,” but it was in fact the unveiling of gridlock, the opening of the era of Big Gridlock.

Nothing the president wants as a piece of legislation will emerge from the Congress. Unlike President Reagan in 1981, President Obama doesn’t have a single great demand but a dozen little ones. Thus there will be no marshaling of forces and arm-twisting etc. culminating in a bill of consequence passing on any subject of import.

The House will just say no.

Gridlock ahead, bad appointees, and finger-pointing.

The good...
