  • Obama’s confident, defiant tone drives conservative commentators crazy

    WGBH - 01/21/2015

    There’s plenty of fulminating in conservative media circles today over President Barack Obama’s unabashedly liberal State of the Union address.

    Some of it is offered in world-weary tones suggesting that, once again, the grown-ups have to explain to the kids that the president doesn’t know what he’s talking about. “Mr. Obama’s income-redistribution themes are familiar,” the Wall Street Journal editorializes, “though they are amusingly detached from the reality of the largest GOP majority in Congress since 1949.”

    Some of it is angry. “The president continues to count on and to exploit the ignorance of many of our fellow citizens,” thumps Scott Johnson of Power Line.

    And some of it is just petulant. Breitbart’s Ben Shapiro concludes a long adolescent rantabout Obama with this unmemorable line: “the state of his union sucks.”
