State of the Lunion

Can't say I was impressed at all with the State of the Union speech. Bush didn't say anything new, as usual. Stay the course, eat your greens, blah, blah, blah. This time, though, he was interrupted several times by standing ovations. I did like when he mentioned how his Social Security reform plan was shot down and the Democrats gave him a standing "o." He then said something along the lines that we still have a problem with SS and the Republicans cheered. "Yay, the system is faulty!" "Hooray, our children are screwed!" So yeah, good comeback, GOP. He also talked more about lowering US dependency on oil. It would be interesting if Iraq was actually going well, then he'd be all "Screw hydrogen cells! Oil forever!" But I guess now he realizes how much money a war costs, and it's not so worth it anymore.
