Then, marvel at the audacity of this, from the Christian Science Monitor: Obama will pivot back to jobs in State of the Union.

He and his Democrat allies must really think that the American people are a blinkered lot. Some of us are, obviously, otherwise he would never have won reelection. But many of us are awake and aware, and we know how meaningless yet another kabuki “pivot” truly is (though we still marvel at the staggering chutzpah of it all).

Obama et al have been a wrecking crew for the economy, and no pivot they do is going to fix anything, unless they pivot to a completely new location on the ideological spectrum. Since that is not going to happen, we are left simply to wonder how many more pivots we are going to have to watch in this bizarre dance.
