Rate the rhetoric tonight
The Kansas City Star
Tonight’s State of the Union address is a stage-setter for the President’s re-election campaign. It is one of those unusual moments when many Americans take time to listen to a real speech, rather than get a recap of sound bites.
Given the national and international audience, and the significance bestowed upon it by tradition, tonight’s the night for some soaring rhetoric, or at least that’s always the goal.
In advance, Republican contender Mitt Romney weighed in with his stab at alliteration. President Obama, he intoned, has brought us “debt, decline and dissatisfaction.” Three Ds. Pretty catchy.
With alliteration unleashed, the polls are open here throughout the speech for which lines work for you, or fall flat.
