Biden offered the best SOTU commentary of all

How boringly familiar was the State of the Union address? Boring enough that Joe Biden, seated right behind Obama and on camera for the entire snooze fest, started mugging and interacting with members of Congress in the audience. It was quite a good commentary on the performance of the Commander in Chief who could not rise above the level of pabulum. Watch the video below and see for yourself.

At least John Boehner managed to keep a dignified look of distaste on his face the entire speech.

There was one good reason why it all seemed so familiar. Obama had so little to say that his speechwriters had to plagiarize a President Bush SOTU, at least according to former Bush speechwriter Mark Thiessen.

"It was eerily familiar," Thiessen said. "There were lines like, 'Our job is to help Americans build a future of hope and opportunity. A future of hope and opportunity begins with a growing economy. A future of hope and opportunity requires our citizens have affordable and available health care.' 'Extending opportunity and hope depends on a stable supply of energy.' All of that came from the 2007 State of the Union address by George W. Bush. So, Barack Obama has gone from blaming George W. bush to plagiarizing George W. Bush."
