When you live in Washington and work in communications, it doesn’t matter who the hell is President — the State of the Union is kind of a thing. I’ll be kicking back taking a sip of Scotch every time the Commander in Chief says “responsibility” “deficit” and “meaningful reform.”
And, I’ll be scrutinizing the speech itself. Say what you will about Obama‘s policies, he’s an effective communicator with a crack writing team (even if the head dude is, like, 12 years old). Still, I think many of the administration’s recent problems have been due to poor messaging. Of course, there’s also the most egregious squandering of political capital since. . . well. . . 9/12.
Maybe Obama will take things up a notch and contract Blackwater/XE to be fully armed greeters at Wal-Mart. And predator drones for every kid on the block! They can be the new remote control airplane.
I’d write more, but why spoil the fun?
