My future daughter-in-law and I were agreeing on our dislike of watching state of the union addresses. Regardless of who's president I always find this speech discomforting and feel I have to look at it sideways. Sort of like if you don't look at something directly they can't see you. Because whoever is giving the speech is going to give me the creeps due to embarrassing statements, fatuous declarations or just general stupidity.
Which I fully expect from this one, too. As future d-i-l said, if information wasn't so immediate as it is now, perhaps it would still be relevant. And, as I said, right. It's all a campaign speech anyway. And a colossal waste of time.
Which brings me to my main point. People are stupid and that's a rant for another day. After tomorrow during which I get to go to another state of the union address, only local.
