The Real State of the Union

It's just after midnight. I've been spending time reading over the President's speech, listening to commentary, and listening to the ideas of fellow bloggers. Throughout tomorrow, I'll take different parts of the President's speech and tell you why his ideas are dumb, recycled, and generally bad for the country.

In the meantime, I'm pasting below the Democratic response to the President's version of the State of our Union. It's given by newly elected Virginia Senator Jim Webb. I understand he wrote the speech himself. It's well done. Chris Matthews said on MSNBC that it is one of the few instances in history in which the Response to the State of the Union was better than the President's speech. I mean, it's so good, that people are starting to chant 'Webb for Prez'!
