The theme throughout the president's speech sounded like, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".
Reduce dependence on foreign oil? How many times have we heard this one? Bring down the high cost of health care? Again, how many times have we heard this one? Strengthen U.S. competition in the global economy? Ditto. In 2000, George accepted the presidential nomination and promised to fix as I intend to fix it, social security. Now he wants a commission to study it? This is the same rhetoric like he used last year and the year before and the year before when he called for making health care more affordable, making America less dependent on foreign oil and making our economy more competitive around the world. It's the same song!
"The state of our union is strong". Look, he is not lying, none of them are, he is Bullshitting us.
