Obama’s last State of the Union

Despite the importance of the issues, the solutions Barack Obama will advance in his last State of the Union remarks will be small and inconsequential because, ultimately, his presidency was small and inconsequential.

A few presidents go down in history as great men who sought to do great things. Others, like Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, will go down in history as undersized leaders who sought the presidency to enhance themselves rather than enhancing the country.

The policies of this Administration will quickly fade into history.
