Obama's Strange State of the Union

Was last night's State of the Union address the sort we'd expect to be delivered by a President:

-whose job approval is under 50%,

-whose party is historically overexposed in the upcoming congressional elections,

-whose party was unable to hold a Senate seat in one of the bluest states, previously held by the party's most iconic post-war leaders,

-whose major domestic initiative has just crashed-and-burned as a consequence of that failure,

-and who heads into a midterm election with unemployment close to 10%?

I'd say not.

Implication: either this White House knows more than the rest of us, or it knows less.

Any takers for the "more" side of the ledger?
