suhfeeyah says: A few questions. First, do you know where I can access the full text of Herman Cain's Tea Party rebuttal? I'd really appreciate it. Secondly, I know that a text of what is supposed to be the Occupy rebuttal is floating around. (I found it on Huffington Post.) Do you know if the human mic delivery actually happened and if there's a video? I haven't been able to find anything on the DC movement's official UStream. Thanks so much!

» SFB says: I haven’t spotted a full text of Cain’s speech — I really get the impression, having watched it, that he improvised off a set of notes — but the video’s over here. I’ve yet to see an actual mic check video, but the text is here. So we have a dual-pronged problem: A response without text, and a response without video. Heh. I’ll keep an eye out for both! — Ernie @ SFB

We quite enjoyed Obama's speech, thinking it was his best yet. The WaPo's Jennifer Rubin, a righty, had a different opinion, though. 

It was a painfully long and shapeless speech, designed to cheer Democrats and stick his finger in the eyes of Republicans. (He’s not going to let them poison kids with mercury, thank goodness.) He talks about Washington being broken as if he were a passive observer — which I suppose he is. He decries nasty partisanship, as if he had not accused Republicans of putting party over country.

As far as his own policy initiatives, however, it was a shockingly barren speech. But of course, it’s not about governing. It’s about getting re-elected.

State of the Union speeches tend to be long and tend to cover a lot of stuff, right? To us, these criticisms seem off-base. But maybe you have a different view.

Cain just gave his great tell of where the 9-9-9 plan came from: "In 1999, my first grandchild was born."
