February is no more. It ended promptly on February 28 as expected, while thoughtful Americans were still pondering President Barack H. Obama’s January 28 State of the Union address. He insisted on giving it, and apparently no one was able to prevent him—not even Mrs. Michele Obama, who is a lot bigger than the president. The president, who won the 2009 Nobel Prize for Peace & Comedy nine months after his inauguration, gives these mendacious talks every year and will be giving two more before his term expires. A couple of patriotic ushers tried to direct him to a different chamber across the Capitol, but he was wise to them and entered the House of Representatives chamber only a few minutes late and with armed guards, so there was to be no more fooling around.
