The Day After
Last night the president delivered a prime-time speech to a divided nation. As we noted in yesterday's report, only 31% of Americans believe the country is better off now than in 2009, when Obama took office.
The general consensus is that Obama's remarks amounted to "small ball" with little substance beyond his pledge to stretch the limits of his power with more executive actions. Charles Krauthammer said:

Confidence Waning In Obama
Leading up to tomorrow night's State of the Union address, Barack Obama and his spokesmen are once again threatening to implement unilateral, constitutionally questionable executive actions if Congress will not bend to Obama's will.

That ruling has resulted in, by one count, more than 56 million abortions in America. That's 56 million innocent babies destroyed in the womb; 56 million lives never lived, their contributions to society lost forever.

Barack Obama took office promising to fundamentally transform America. While his domestic agenda has gotten most of the attention, Obama has had a considerable impact on America's foreign policy as well. For example:

Governor Mike Pence Fights For Marriage
Indiana Governor Mike Pence delivered his State of the State address Tuesday and did not hesitate to stand up for normal marriage.
Indiana has been an unlikely battleground in the culture war. While more than 30 states across the country overwhelmingly approved constitutional amendments protecting marriage as the union of one man and one woman, liberal politicians who previously controlled Indiana's state legislature routinely refused to let Hoosiers vote on the issue.
