Obama's First State of the Union: Nothing to Say

by Douglas V. Gibbs

Today, President Barack Obama will inform the Congress on the State of the Union, as required by the U.S. Constitution. The first year of Obama's presidency has been pretty lousy, and honestly, I am curious about what Barry is going to say.

Obama promised an economic recovery and an unemployment rate of not more than 8%, both of which he has missed his mark.

Obama promised to keep this nation safe, but we've had a number of terrorist attacks.

Obama promised transparency, and the health care negotiations on C-Span. There has been no transparency, and instead closed door meetings. And the representatives and Senators aren't even reading the bills!

Maybe he'll just stand up there and say 2011 will be far better, after all, it can't get much worse (could it?).
