The SOTU Challenge

What good is the SOTU?

For me, it’s unproductive political theater, campaigning and posturing.  Maybe I’m missing something.  Feel free to try to convince me otherwise.

My theory is if government was doing its job nobody would care to watch this speech.

I think one reason folks do watch is that the Federal government has expanded so far beyond its chartered role that folks like to tune in and get an idea of which winners and losers the government might pick in the coming year.  After all, who tunes into their Governor’s State of the State speech or their Mayor’s State of the City speech?  Nobody.

I did notice one interesting thing last night.  Paul Ryan’s hair is very Reagan-esque.
