While I can see your point that this article could have been written at anytime at all, I can see how it applies to the SOTU. He's simply listing his frustrations that the SOTU address was simply the average ultra-liberal sound good speech Obama allows preaches. During the SOTU, Obama went through many ideas that sound good in theory (like the raising minimum wage) but we all know that changes like not just won't be done in general, but if they were done it wouldn't work. Our country is in the biggest debt it has ever seen and will just continue to plummet with the continuation of Obama's policies. His way didn't work the last four years, and they're certainly not going to work for the future four years.
