Three Things from the State of the Union Address

#1 President Bush isn't a total bastard. Somewhere in there he still has a heart.

Yet we also need to acknowledge that we will never fully secure our border until we create a lawful way for foreign workers to come here and support our economy. (Applause.) This will take pressure off the border and allow law enforcement to concentrate on those who mean us harm. We must also find a sensible and humane way to deal with people here illegally. Illegal immigration is complicated, but it can be resolved. And it must be resolved in a way that upholds both our laws and our highest ideals.

#2 I was very glad he said this:

Tonight the armies of compassion continue the march to a new day in the Gulf Coast. America honors the strength and resilience of the people of this region. We reaffirm our pledge to help them build stronger and better than before. And tonight I'm pleased to announce that in April we will host this year's North American Summit of Canada, Mexico, and the United States in the great city of New Orleans.

and finally

#3 This one needs action:

America opposes genocide in Sudan.

Well then, if we oppose it, let's do something to stop it. And while we're at it, let's prevent things like this from happening in the future!
