Did president Obama’s State of the Union have a familiar ring to it? Maybe there’s a reason
Gosh, perhaps that’s why this SOTU had the lowest audience since 2000. People generally don’t tune in as often for repeats.
Over at National Review Online, Jonah Goldberg makes the point that Obama’s address should provide conservatives with a bit of reassurance.
Rather than plowing some new vista providing a view of the Liberal Promised Land, Obama’s speech was mostly a rather prosaic enumeration of penny-ante proposals that Democrats have been chirping about for years.
It’s an indication, Goldberg thinks, that liberalism might not quite be the It Girl of political philosophies, as so many analysts seem to think.
