Is this the reaction of a self-assured, dignified leader? Or something else?
At his State of the Union (SOTU) Address tonight, Obama was supposed to deliver these lines:
I have no more campaigns to run. My only agenda for the next two years is the same as the one I’ve had since the day I swore an oath on the steps of this Capitol — to do what I believe is best for America.
But a handful of Republicans (barely) interrupted him with a smattering of mock applause after the first line.
Surprisingly, Obama could not just let it go, but snapped back with a reaction that did not seem particularly “presidential”:
Does this petty response seem like a man who confidently knows he has the support of the people? Or one still bitter after a stinging midterm loss that handed Republicans their largest Congressional majority since 1920?
Or as the ever-classy Margaret Thatcher once said: “Power is like being a lady… if you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”
