    I thought the SotU speech was great, one of his best.  He came off as an adult.  Sometimes, like an adult admonishing children.  He kept talking about "bipartisan" work and even mentioned Saint Reagan... but continually hammered home his proposals and why even Republicans should vote for them.

    He did it with style, humor and emotion.  The conservatives looked like petulant children grudgingly allowed at the grownups table.

    If Republicans are going to act like children, they should be treated like children.  They need a time out.

    Vote Democratic, and vote in the primaries to get good Democrats.

    Obama has laid the foundation for the Democrats to retake the House in 2014.  It's now up to him to act decisively, for the Democrats in the Senate to step up, and for the Democrats in the House to be are forceful (but not as arrogant) as their GOP counterparts in asserting their plans to move forward.
