Jeff and Sara make interesting points about the first couple bits in the State of the Union address. My question: What was President Bush trying to do by sending Sacheen Littlefeather up to deliver the speech for him?
I was pretty excited by the first couple minutes of the speech, all of which had to do with cutting taxes. But what's up with all these Great Society schemes to build the hydrogen car, fight AIDS around the world, and leave no American unemployed. And that's not getting to the war stuff, which covered about the last half of the speech. Hey, Mr. Prez, why not throw in the National Health Care Card while you're at it? I know I'll be called a commie for pointing this out, but I believe you'd have to go back to the Johnson Administration to find such a Big State SOTU speech.
