Erickson: Obama's SOTU "quips" "were cocky and snide"

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

From Erickson's January 27 Red State.com blog post titled, "'Just Statin' the Facts'":

What you did not know at home listening to Barack Obama's speech tonight is that he inserted a few quips that were not in the prepared text. They were cocky and snide.

After an entire paragraph bashing the Bush administration with this:

At the beginning of the last decade, America had a budget surplus of over $200 billion. By the time I took office, we had a one year deficit of over $1 trillion and projected deficits of $8 trillion over the next decade. Most of this was the result of not paying for two wars, two tax cuts, and an expensive prescription drug program. On top of that, the effects of the recession put a $3 trillion hole in our budget. That was before I walked in the door.

Obama added, "Just statin' the facts."
