A lot of people are saying that the upcoming first State of the Union speech from President Obama will highlight his lack of accomplishment since he came into office.

This is a very good overview article ripping into that myth. The linked-to Esquire article is particularly good at showing how he’s been working on a lot of stuff without pushing it into the press and also how what he’s done is a good mix of things that will be supported by left and right (or piss off either left or right depending on how you see it).

Also – for those that have not seen Polifact yet it’s definitely work a look. Even if just to read the “pants on fire” Truth-O-Meter and see how Republican’s and Republican apologists massively outweigh the Democrats (who have far too many as it is).
