Ah yes, the State of the Union. I hate to say it but Obama is falling down off his horse, losing his valiant hero image. I can only guess what he will say to inspire us, once again. As I'm sure he knows, people are angry and they are impatient for him to do something—anything.
His inspiration was a double-edged sword. Yes, we were happy to be inspired. But too much inspiration has bred so much indignation. The hope is now counteracted with feelings of regret and betrayal. And people believed in him beyond words.
People are hyped up with so much change they are forgetting what it takes to make so much change. It's been one. single. year and yet it's as if nothing has happened. It's as if Obama has failed, utterly and completely. I agree, there are some things that should have been better. So here we go with year No. 2.
