What Obama didn't say

What I heard from President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech: President George Bush left me a mess, and I couldn't fix it with a congressional supermajority but have hope that we can change it next year.

What I didn't hear: I can't account for the billions spent for jobs I didn't create and an economy I didn't revive. I wasted my first year in office trying to pass legislation 70 percent of the American people did not want, closing a terrorist facility that's still open and dithering on how many troops to send.

Pay no attention to the man behind the teleprompter. I'm the great and mighty Oz!
