Obama State of the Union recycle-mania and Gov. Mitch Daniels response

The GOP was quick to the trigger with the recycle-my-previous-speeches video in reference to President Obama’s State of the Union campaign speech last night. Included is the GOP video and the GOP response from Gov. Mitch Daniels (R).

Note: I think there is a good chance you can go through previous State of the Unions and find similar rhetoric during three to seven consecutive years of a president’s term, but probably not to this extent.

    Could the GOP have found anyone more scintillatingly exciting to respond!!!!? Eyes glazed over once more (ears too) see post on Steve’s weird picture.

    It was just another batch of admittedly well delivered populist pap.? I didn’t watch the whole thing, but did he say “laser like focus on jobs” again?? If so, maybe he should try not aiming the laser AT the jobs this time around!
    Slightly off topic: was it just me, or did ?bama’s head look like a big pumpkin last night?? I tried switching stations, but his face remained a glowing orange.? Everyone else, particularly Biden and Boehner behind him, had normal complexions.? I think ?bama is using Al Gore’s old makeup artist, because I distinctly recall Gore having an eerie orange pallor in the debates with Bush (Al Gore’s sighs and orange makeup in 2000 drew ridicule; http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2011/11/21/candidates_focus_on_debate_caution_in_youtube_era/ ).?
    Maybe he hired Helen Thomas to do his makeup.? She’s looking for work…

    I created a response page to the address and kinda hope someone in the White(wash) House sees it.
    I’m sick of being instructed that I should be angry at millionaires and billionaires when they will be the source of any private sector jobs that should crop up.

    Daniels used the term ‘fair’, letting the left once again set the agenda by framing the argument’s language.? I’ll vote for the first p0litician who understands the difference between fair and equatable and replaces fairness, which is subjective, with equability which can be quantified.

    My favorite part of the State of the Union address was when the entire Congress,? all Senators and all Congresspersons, stood up and led by Chief Justice John Roberts, sang,”M I C, K E Y, M O U S E, and then Nancy Pelosi presented the Big Cheese with a custom made Mouseka-ears hat with the the hopey-changie logo on it.
    Oh.? Was I dreaming?

    I didn’t bother to watch Barry. I figured, rightly so after reading the comments here,? that he had nothing new to say.
    And, he didn’t address anything relevant, such as job creation, paying down the debt, vacating the WhiteWash House (I hope that I can use that?) and his propensity to create czars.
    At Least I spared myself having to look at him and hear him lie.
