    I can’t stop laughing. WHY?! Why would you do that? POTUS talked for an hour and you didn’t see him take swigs of water. I understand being nervous. I would even understand sputtering on a few words but who takes a swig of water while giving a speech on live tv?!

    He is such a CLOWN, and they were trying to call him a savior. :roll: Just the latest in a long line of Barack Obama detractors to self-destruct — this time it was political suicide by water bottle. I’ll never look at Poland Springs the same again. :lol:

      I’m don’t feel sorry for the liar. Do anyone remember President Obama first big speech, the 2004 DNC. And he hit a grand slam. That tells you that you either have it or you don’t, and Rubio don’t. It’s like following Michael Jordon on the court when Jordon was in his prime. Only a dam idiot would want to do that.

    while the utter failure of marco go-go is hilarious to any thinking person, we must remember that “the news” lied and provided cover for 8 years for a murderous twit who almost died while president from choking on a pretzel, had a male prostitute posing as a “journalist” to ask him talking point-approved “questions,” and lied america into an unpaid-for-3-trillion dollar war killing hundreds of thousands of innocent women and children in iraq. let’s not lose sight of who our enemy is…it’s it the major media outlets of the world. no republican would ever be elected if there was actual journalism presenting facts the to voters….case in point, marco go-go tonight. forward!!

      Thank you so much Donna dem 4 0bama for sharing this moving part of the President’s speech. I have not watched the President’s entire speech because I was at work during the SOTU! But this part you shared brought tears to my eyes. And believe me, I think of myself as being too old to cry. As a parent who lost a child, not to gun violence but to cancer, I think I know a little what it feels for all these parents who have lost their children. I am sure It’s even more devastating because their losses, which were so abrupt, could have been prevented. This country is so blessed to have a caring President with so much compassion. Now is the time for all of us to stand with him and push hard to ensure that Congress enacts meaningful laws that will reduce gun violence and stop the slaughter of innocent people, especially children.
