Despite admitting yesterday that reading about the Bush family makes me want to give up on political commentary and go live on an ice floe, I spent most of today marking up a biography of George W. Bush that I am reviewing. I’m taking some time off from that to watch the State of the Union. I’ve had an early (embargoed) copy of the speech since last Thursday, so the only suspense will be in looking for any last minute changes. Maybe we’ll see some more about infrastructure spending now that another bridge has collapsed in Speaker Boehner’s backyard.

In any case, here’s a thread to discuss your reactions to the speech and the congressional reaction.
