President Obama delivered what passed for his his State Of The Union Address last night. The GOP and various members of the American people immediately thereafter began rebutting it and analyzing the speech’s meanings.
Why do they bother? You can’t rebut meaningless hot air, which is all that Obama’s nuanced rhetoric and conflicting not-quite-promises were.
The 2011 SOTU Address was nothing other than- or more than Obama’s first major campaign speech in his bid for re-election in 2012. Don’t waste your time and effort, or lend it or its speaker any undeserved weight or significance, rebutting or analyzing it.
