Republicans? Let’s sit on our hands.
A Showdown in Washington over the role of government and the future course of our nation.
President Obama’s speech was feisty, pointed, humorous, thoughtful, knowledgable…and “emotional.”

Will it backfire? Hell yes. If…
Here’s the full speech (I watched, and enjoyed, all of it this morn. Only 16,000 others have watched any part of it, which in a democracy ought to be embarrassing):
