SOTU 2013: It’s Deja Vu All Over Again

I gotta be honest…I just didn’t have it in me to watch this year.   My BS meter was already maxed out, and every preview of the speech’s content pretty much assured me that a root canal would be preferable to sitting through this.

When I read the transcript, I toyed with the idea of going through it as I have in the past, debunking and translating the double-speak point by point.  But there’s nothing he said that hasn’t already been debunked and exposed multiple times before.  He really doesn’t have any new ideas…just the same old, tired, recycled talking points.

So I’m going to let the CATO Institute break it down for you.  I honestly can’t think of anyone better (apart from their apparent agreement with Obama that Al Qaeda is “on the run,” but that’s to be expected of Libertarians):
