Round 1: Obama ahead on all cards

Despite the nauseating backdrop of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the president scored early and often with nice rhetoric that delivered a human touch about the national agony and fear over the economy.

Obama then pledged that the country would emerge stronger than before. While I doubt that it can, it still was nice for him to say to try and build some hope in the nation.

That drew a round of applause from Congress.

He also scored points by not laying blame on any administration or political party. He cited decades of knowing that oil dependence was a problem. He cited individual and government piling of debt.

He cited a day of reckoning to make long-term decisions not only for economic recovery but future growth.

Good honesty on his part, plain speaking.
