Worst SOTU?

Jim Hoft's a bit more critical than I was last night, "McCain Seen Mouthing “Blame It On Bush” During Obama’s Hyper-Partisan Attack Speech":

This may go down as the worst State of the Union Address in history. The current administration tripled the national deficit, nearly doubled the unemployment from the average during the Bush years, and nearly bankrupt the country on failed stimulus while focusing on nationalizing health care and energy, but blamed the previous adminstration for all of his woes. President Obama could not get himself to admit we won in Iraq and inappropriately attacked the Supreme Court all in one awful speech.
Also, from Ruby Slippers, "More Lip Reading the SOTU Audience." And Doug Ross, "Larwyn's Linx: Requiem for Obamacare."

And related, "
Justice Alito's Reaction," via Memeorandum.

I increasingly wonder why anybody thinks Obama is a great speaker. I think this was the second longest SOTU, behind Clinton, and one of the worst and robotic-ally delivered at that. Between the "I"s, "me"s and whining you would think that the only important issue that is facing this country is Obama's ego gratification.

Thanks so much for linking! It surely was the worst SOTU, completely undignified in my opinion.
