No other State of the Union has EVER been more powerful, more direct and more relevant than what President Obama just delivered. @whitehouse— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) February 13, 2013
woo hoo you said it Bob that was great!
!!! Awesome, Bob…!!!!
Indeed, Chris Matthews is bitching already.
Can we make this thread about this awesome president and not about stupid emmessem ? Thanks.
Thank you amk – precisely!
WTG Bobfr, fitting you should stand in First Place, on this night, this incredible night!
Thank you vitaminlover, Alice, df, amk, Pamela
You earned ALL of this one!!
I couldn’t agree more. I was blown away by the breadth of the ideas and how much the whole country would advance if we had a cooperative Congress and these ideas were implemented. This was far and away the best SOTU the president has given. He made us all proud to be citizens while making the opposition with their petty whines seem small. Bravo, Mr, President.
I move that we all, no matter if your reps are Dems or Republicans (especially R’s!) send off an email tomorrow and let them know that we want them to work together and implement the suggestions that the President put forward tonight!
Outstanding suggestion, df.
Jackie – couldn’t agree with you more!!!
I will. I’ve got three to write.
I totally second that, DF!
You said it, Jackie – Pres. Obama also brought all of us right into his address. We were all having a conversation with him, around the kitchen table or through a “fireside chat.” I, personally, was agreeing with every word!
Boy, did I get left in the dirt! Congrats Bob!
Thought for sure you or VC would have already made it to the #1 slot, Carol
I’m about an hour behind. Hubby made me wait.
Nailed it Bob!! Well done!
Thank you friend!!
Yes We Can
Thank you Bobfr and all the people on the previous thread for your reporting on SOTU! I had to work tonight and I missed the speech. I am waiting for it to be posted here at TOD. Judging from your comments, and the comments of all TOD members, the President must have done an exceptional job tonight. Now is the time to stand strongly behind him as he works to implement policies that will benefit all of us.
Excellent #SOTU speech. Go Mr President Barack Hussein Obama.— (@amk4obama) February 13, 2013
I love the sound of his name.
Congrats Bobfr on 1st!
That was an excellent lay-out of a plan Mr. President, even though you made me cry!
We are all weeping in our Joy, GGail! He is unlike any other human to ever walk this Earth!
Switch aj to avoid stupid pundtwitry.
I know, BBC World even had pundits. I switched before they spewed.
Glad you have the alternative channel.
THAT’S MY PRESIDENT! I’m SO proud of him!
Agree 100% Dudette.
Mine, too! I’m so proud of him.
PBO IS THE MAN!
What a feast of a #SOTU @BarackObama a rich and excellent, excellent speech #THEYDESERVEAVOTE— (@a4alice) February 13, 2013
FINALLY HOME GETTING READY TO WATCH ON THE DVR!!!! I caught a glimpse and he was GIVIN’ ‘EM HELL!!!!!!!!!
Yes he did. I was late too. That’s why you are getting a late comment.
Great coverage Chipsticks! I like your statement “I’m not as young as I was this morning” – me neither
That’s MY President! MIIIIIINE!!!!!
THAT. SPEECH. WAS. JUST…FANTASTIC.
It was just brilliant, gob, to keep repeating that line. It brought chills to my spine and frankly made the smirky little R’s look small and unpatriotic. America’s citizens behave better than you, Congress. Grow up. Be worth of this country. He really laid it on them.
I loved that…They deserve a vote
Spectacular speech. the Many, not the Few. $9 minimum wage with cost of living increases. Deserves a vote, deserves a vote. Just wonderful
When he talk of the 102 year old lady and they show her, that was so touching.
Are we all on the OFA call too? Listening to Jon Carson now, waiting for PBO. Am voice recording.
YUP, I am.
I’m not tonight Pam – tell us about it when you get done.
Right now they are going over the plan for everyone to stay involved, on a local level, esp keeping after the congresspeople in each district. No PBO yet.
Here is PBO!
PBO thanked everyone, asked us not to let tonight’s effort become empty words, but to stay on top of it, that he cannot do it without us. He thanked everyone several times, said to keep up the good work!
Over 133,000 people on this call! Woot!
I was on one last night…
I replied to about four emails. I’m waiting.
I watched this on C-Span ’cause I just wanted pure Obama.
That was a fantastic SOTU. Pres. Obama was doing the equivalent of shit just got real!
Gun violence, immigration reform, universal pre-K, education, climate change, equal pay, VAWA, benefits for LGBT military families, raising the minimum wage from $7.25 to $9, jobs, energy, tax reform, staunch defense of ObamaCare, etc.
Welcome to the second term Republicans.
Yup. He beat them with all the sticks he had and that they deserved.
I think Boner is crying down his leg! Stole that from someone.
Fantastic speech in every way. FANTASTIC event!!
Justice Ginsberg surely does feel great affection for our POTUS!!
Yes, I noticed that before the first #SOTU address.
this after party after the speech…is kooooooool…on whitehouse .gov
Chips – you are forever YOUNG!!!!
Thank you, once again, for the exceptional community you have nurtured at TOD!!!!
Can I say Amen! I am so glad I came to this space because I missed the speech but I was able to experience it through all the people who posted here.
Thank you, Chipsticks, for the wonderful photos (sorry you didn’t have time to photoshop out Boner and his mug…)
Was it Chris Matthews that was making the off the bat critical comments after the SOTU address? If so, can I Cyber-Slap him?
FLOTUS is beautiful :-).
Is anyone else going to listen to the President’s phone call with OFA? Right now I’m trying to listen to the OFA site and the Whitehouse site and keep up here! Where’s the icon for head swimming?
Hey, Hooo, POTUS knows where its at!

Yes we did, Bob, They are all about disenfranchising, so that only the chosen few in their brand of America can vote. It was a brilliant move to invite the Romney campaign lawyer to join in solving our voting problems. Eat that, Rs.
Pure genius, Jackie – when the President announced that the two campaign lawyers, one being #BainMitt’s were tasked with the job I literally laughed out loud as I watched Boehner frowning and the Rs stuck in their seats

This was a FANTASTIC SOTU address! Very inspiring, moving, progressive.
Please ignored ALL Cable TV Punditry – these fools are being paid seven-figure salaries to provide corporate sponsored “opinions.” They are IRRELEVANT.
YES. There is NO REASON to listen to any pundit. None.
We have work to do.

Marco Rubio fine-tunes his preparations for feisty response to President Obama's SOTU speech http://t.co/seo6upBF— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) February 13, 2013
Behold the magic Cuban speaks……..NOT!
My twitter timeline confirms that this is exactly what is happening.
uugghh rubio. he looks like that stupid brother in my name is earl.
His speech is full of “I” and “My” and that sucks! He’s a pitiful specimen. He must really think he’s gonna go somewhere. Unreal.
Just finished listening. He is not their Savior. Everything he has, he owes to the govt. Hypocrite, liar. Mad me mad! 😡
I’m listening to President Obama now on OFA talking to us! WHOOO HOOOOO!!!!
PBO is on the call:
Progress 2050 @progress2050
RT @emilyslist: 369,829 women in Boehner’s district who make $0.77 on a man’s $1. And Boehner stayed seated during #paycheckfairness #sotu
It wasn’t just Boehner. There were actual Republican women who refused to applaud or stand up during this proposal! Shocking! And shameful.
I’m pretty sure I saw that horrible Marsha Blackburn not only staying in her seat, but frowning and shaking her head during this section of the speech. Unbelievable. Women of Tennessee, get a clue and get her out of there!
I’m not on the OFA call, but I love that they scheduled it for right after PBO’s speech — keeps folks from wallowing in punditry and nonsense.
It’s true. I am on the call, and am thankful that I’m not being tempted to listen to Rubio’s rebuttal, which is on mute.
It was a great idea.

OMG!!! HE’S DOING A CALL ON OFA RIGHT NOW, AND ANSWERING QUESTIONS?!?! I’VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS. INCREDIBLE!!
No Q&A – I think it’s too late. But, as he was speaking, it dawned on me that I was on a call with the actual President of the United States who had just finished delivering a State of the Union address. Wow!
yes, i thought that woman coming on was going to ask a question, but still UNBELIEVABLE that right after a state of the union, the president gets on a phone call with supporters. it’s a new era, ladies and gentlemen!!!!!
I signed up for the call but forgot all about it.
I love and admire President Barack Hussein Obama; a leader for the ages. That speech was perfection; and to borrow a line from Scandal, PBO “is a gladiator in a suit.”
I support President @BarackObama's plan for good jobs that will help grow the middle class. #JobsNow— Alycee (@jazziz2) February 13, 2013
I’m so lame I didn’t know how to tweet this myself (messed it up). Glad to see someone who can honor his request!
Just click on the middle icon on the tweet above – the one with the two arrows going in a clockwise direction. It will bring up the retweet. Easy!
He said he still needs us and thanked us for our continued support. He is a magnificent leader!!!
He sounded pumped up, and happy.
Marco Rubio is currently embarrassing himself. I think we just found the male Michele Bachmann.
Utterly pathetic, can’t believe how awful it is!!!
Good. I didn’t have the stomach to listen to him.
Can't tell: is Rubio suffering from dry mouth or are his ideas just so old and withered they're sapping his last drops of moisture?— Chris Coleman (@mayorcoleman) February 13, 2013
Love it Alice!!!!
Why in the world do Republicans think he is a talented politician?
Do you remember the primaries?
You all have strong stomachs to watch Rubio. I can’t think of an amount of money large enough to get me to listen to that guy.
bad enough on mute, glancing up now and then to see various idiotic looking people I am unfamiliar with. Loved the call with the hundreds of thousands, and our Preezy! Gotta love technology!
Awesomeness! Hope Pete Souza got a pic of those kids at end who were calling out to PBO & he finally gave them a cute wave. Their comments after were so cute! They were off camera.
I missed that! Were they the interns?
Theo, they sounded like 5-7 year olds. I was on CSPAN.
#SOTU – President Obama today let know the americans what they stand to lose by voting for republicans.— (@amk4obama) February 13, 2013
Mr. Bobfr, congratulations for being #1!
You deserve that spot tonight because it just feels right.
Our President came in “On The Good Foot” and left on the same foot….
I just knew he was going to touch every base, but touched my heart a as well…
What got me was, “You can vote “No” if you want…. Then he goes on to name each individual who deserves a vote……he included us as well. The tears will not stop. can it get any better than this? HELL YES!
Thank you, Chips.
Sweet sleep everyone.
“I just knew he was going to touch every base, but touched my heart a as well…”
Indeed he did, LDS! And thank you for your kind words.
Wow! Every sentence flowing from Ruby-Blow’s mouth is a lie!
No surprise the pundidiots are complaining — they always do. I thought the speech was magnificent.
Slick car salesman Rubio is sucking at selling me or anyone on the same tried and true cut cut cut. Cut spending, cut taxes, and cut government.
I love that the Republicans refuse to acknowledge that it’s their policies that are being rejected – not the color of the skin of the person presenting the policies… Now, on to 2014.
LOL! Did he just stop to take a nip?
I tried listening to Rubio. The first 2 1/2 minutes were ok, then he went into this whine about how PBO isn’t nice to the Republicans. It was such a petty, juvenile response to the Pres. Obama’s soaring, visionary oratory. And just to end on a small note…who did the lighting and make-up on Rubio? It’s awful!
So I take it that Marco followed in the illustrious footsteps of Bobby Jindal?
He was sweeting it. Hubby laughed out loud when he took his gulp!
Think Progress rebutting Rubio LIES!!
I love love love TP’s live blogging of political events. They are the BEST
The BEST! I never watch something like this without them….the Presidential Debates were fabulous with them. They are great at this!!
lmao. thug rubio just surreptitiously stole a sip of water all the while looking at the camera with his beday eyes. captures his ‘moment’ perfectly.
Marco Rubio just paused to gulp down water on LIVE TV?!?!?! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. This is embarrassing.
I have him on mute. As I predicted, aj is on the case on this stupid surreptitious sip/
Quite apropos. The only alternative to backing out altogether.
Good night everyone; I enjoyed sharing this event with you.
Rubio really needs to stop drinking the water after every few blah, blah’s.
When you lie, your mouth dries up; remember when Ryan did the same thing during the V P debate? Yet our guy can speak with passion and conviction for almost an hour without stopping. These repubs. are not ready for prime time.
Lying, and knowing that he is lying … so he is nervous = thirsty!!!
Awesome speech! Worth staying up for. I have honestly never known a President have such an honest, approachable persona. This has been a truly wonderful way to start my angelbaby’s birthday. I just LOVE President Obama, words can not describe how I feel about this great man. We are blessed, the whole world is blessed by his presidency.
This has taken me ages to type as I am making so many mistakes. I think I will call it a night as I can’t see straight. It is 3.45 a.m. here and it has been a pleasure to share this wonderful SOTU here on TOD.
Go to bed Sam!!!! Lovely to hear from you!
Take care Sam.
Sam, thank you for caring enough to stay up for this speech. God bless you there in the UK.
👼May your angelbaby rest in peace.
Sweet dreams and beautiful days, Sam! Thank you for your support of great President and hanging out with us.
Take good care, Sam!!
Enjoy your “angelbaby’s” birthday today! This was a wonderful speech from a wonderful man! Thanks for staying up to enjoy it with us.
Oh no Marco Rubio didn’t just take a swig of that water like that…trying to wash down those lies. Loser.

Well We Love you Back
Thank you. :))
Tell me more about Rubio’s speech … I drew the line and left hubby upstairs to watch that pathetic response alone!
Twas epic Jindalesque disaster. GOP just killed their 2016 golden goose “savior”
Chips: ‘I’m not as young as I was this morning’
Well, what do ya know, my mayoress is learning to accept the reality of her age! I say ‘LEARNING to accept’ because you spoilt it by adding ‘this morning’.
Side effect of managing her cat farm! It is a long, uphill learning curve…..

Gawd, didn’t he look like a 5 yr old, breathlessly taking a chug from a sippy cup?
Besides needing a quick sip of water his hands never stopped moving like he had to get a rhythm going in order to talk.
Should I or shouldn’t I watch?
Awesome, hopeful and dare I say, trustworthy and patriotic?!! This man deeply believes in America AND Americans!

PBO was fascinating tonight. He seemed so relaxed and confident. I was a nervous wreck and he just glides through these big events.
I’ll never get tired of this man. Listening to him tonight on that conference call reminded me of that evening he called me. I’ll always treasure that incredible moment.
I bet you will!!!
The confidence really struck me too Donna, there was a slight nervousness in these SOTUs before, understandably, but not tonight – four more years, he knows what he wants to do, and he’s damn well going to do it.
Lucky you. I must have answered too many emails. what did he say?
Helloooo Donna, this is Barack
Really? Well WY is always last, so I’ll just wait patiently.
Same here. He knows this is his moment and he is going all out for it. This is what he was placed here on earth for. He is the man for this moment. I feel that the dam is going to break and things are going to start getting done. Even more than election night 2008 (maybe, it’s hard to beat that night) I think of Dr. King and his mountain top speech.
I started crying when they announced Barack Hussein Obama would be our 44th President! I thought I would have the opposite reaction. It was like a huge boulder off my shoulder.
I was on one too, during the campaign. It was so encouraging.
Great SOTU speech by President Obama. I wish he could serve 4 terms like FDR. Now, who is this ugly reptile speaking on my TV screen right now pretending to be POTUS? Oh, my bad- is the idiot with the big ego without any commonsense known as Marco Rubio. I guess he did not receive a memo from Bobby Jindal on what happens when someone tries too hard to upstage PBO. BIG FAIL. Oh well, he will learn soon enough.
Jewelz, I wish President Obama could be our President till Sasha or Malia get old enough to take over. I won’t allow myself to think about 2017.
well, elizabeth warren would carry the torch perfectly, but we do need to focus on getting the House back in 2014 right now in my opinion.
I agree whole heartedly.
I especially loved all the gold curtains and tassels behind Rubio. Looked like a brothel (not that I know what a brothel looks like) (no, really, I don’t) with a borrowed flag on a pole. And then they threw in a framed photo of his family. And apparently way too many hot lights for a kid like Rubio to handle. And doesn’t one get a dry mouth from lying? Eek – how to get that picture out of my head tonight?
He was sweeting it, wasn’t he? My husband LOL! I heard a few lip smacks too. When Romney gave speech at RNC I counted 101, hubby counted 103!
What a beautiful thing..Just speechless..FLOTUS looks stunning…Love this family..
You are not alone Karlene. So proud of our First family.

He just may choke on his own dry spit…….he had better stop now.
Thank you brave souls for watching.. I just could not. I need to absorb all I just heard.
What a speech! What confidence!
He really truly cares. I was hanging on to every word.
Thank you God for hearing our prayers.

That is the single funniest thing I’ve ever seen – it was funny enough when he leaned over for the water, but the gulp? Okay, I’m gone
I never heard of anybody doing that before. He probably peed his pants later.

Fox News’ Bret Baier reacts: “This response is always a tough spot, a tough job…definitely appeared that Sen. Rubio was a bit nervous at times. Getting dry mouth, finally taking a drink of water…Remember Gov. Bobby Jindal had a tough time delivering a response.”
That’s all you need to know about that!
Isn’t it though

Read about this on Twitter and here…in case you missed it:
I feel a Saturday NIght Live coming on…
Not just Saturday Night Live, but all of Late Night TV.
Rubio is about get skewered. Big time!
Rubio obviously can’t handle Obama, but wait until SNL, Stewart, Colbert, Kimmel, Fallon, Maher, Ferguson, Letterman, and even Leno get through with him.
Sorry, Marc, but the fall-out from this isn’t over yet.
Hahahahahaha!!!! Stop it! Yer killing me!! ROFLMAO!!!!!!! Big gulp! Was he doing a commercial for the bottled water company?
He keeps looking at camera like it’s going to leave him. This was a hoot!
That was so bad…
Wait, what, that was carried live?!
YES! LIVE! I almost pee’d laughing so hard!!!
YES!!! LOLOL! :LOL: I hav not stopped laughing ever since.
Totally LIVE. It was the most bizarre thing. Like he was doing a mocking joke version of himself.
omg.. that is so hilarious!! I didn’t stick around for Rubio.. but grateful ya’ll posted that ‘remarkable’ moment. Haaaaaa!! Historical fer sure these gopers.. what next???
Thank goodness Rubio didn’t call for a timeout and rush to the bathroom.
I would have probably needed an ambulance to resuscitate me from laughing so hard if that happened.
PBO’s detractors ALWAYS self-destruct. Here we have the latest example: political suicide by Poland Springs water bottle. Whew!
I just showed this video to my 13 yr old son.. he fell out of his chair laughing.. then sobered up and said he felt sorry for Rubio, unable to wait for that drink of water. A 13 year old gets it.
Sort of like when Paul Ryan was chugalugging water during his VP debate.
AlJazeera way better than even BBC on the coverage of sotu and discussions are about substance and not form.
It’ll be interesting to compare AJE to AJA when it comes on air in a couple of months.
Poland Spring is trending on Twitter. I expect to see a new twitter account by tomorrow named “@Rubio’sWaterBottle” or something like that.

Real and compassionate people get it.

We are all from immigrants, at least I am. I am not a native Ameriacan, although I would be proud to be called one. People like the “R”cans tried to destroy all the Native Americans, God help them when they meet their maker.
