SOTU: ObamneyCare© MIA

Careful listeners might be forgiven if they missed the 44 words covering his signature legislative "victory" in President Obama's most recent State of the Union address. That's correct, 44 words in a speech which, oddly enough, barely qualified as Smarter than an 8th Grader.

Now why would the President elide over his stellar accomplishment?

Well, the fact that 44% of the public disapproves of it (versus 37% who think it's just Jim Dandy). The most hated part? Well, that remains the (Evil) Individual Mandate, which 54% believe (correctly) is unconstitutional.

Which is not to say that the Republicans should rest easy, either. In his rebuttal, Hoosier Gov Mitch Daniels gave the subject short shrift, as well. As Bob pointed out yesterday, the Republicans' plan is not exactly a barn-burner, either.

Still, one is left to wonder why the President was so uncharacteristically modest about the bill we had to pass to learn what's in it.
