On Tuesday, President Barack Obama gave his completely non-awaited State of the Union address. Fresh off a humiliating midterm shellacking, President Obama demonstrated zero desire to change course, his usual unshakable arrogance regarding his fictional success, and his frustrating habit of playing verbal tricks rather than recognizing the reality of legitimate political debates.

Obama began by stating that America had now “turned the page”:

We are fifteen years into this new century.  Fifteen years that dawned with terror touching our shores; that unfolded with a new generation fighting two long and costly wars; that saw a vicious recession spread across our nation and the world.  It has been, and still is, a hard time for many. But tonight, we turn the page.

He added that everything was awesome about the economy (false), that we were bringing troops home (true, but we’re also cutting them out of the military altogether and leaving our allies in the lurch), and that now we could indulge in the magical navel-gazing exercise of determining “who we want to be over the next fifteen years and for decades to come.”
