      Big problem with many GOPers – their wives don’t like them or their policies. SOTU probably the only time they let them come to DC

    So PBO surprised Boner with a shout out for something or other (missed whatever it was),. For a minute I thought Boner was gonna start bawling.

    #2 threatens to kick me out of the room, cause I keep PBOing.

    I was still commenting on the last thread. Hard to listen and type to keep up. PBO is kicking ass and taking names. Reminding tem of what he has done, challenging congress, and hammering them about obstruction and the shut down.

        They did eventually get to cheer a little – they really think they can get the red vote by not supporting the ACA – when they will NEVER get a truly red voter – no matter what they do. Educating people on their health care rights will win them many more votes.

    What a f@#king bitch.

    I thought I couldn’t hate this vile, privileged snob more than I already did, but JHC. I am so praying that Ezra’s hubris catches up with him and the NYT wakes up to what a liability she is.

    Would like to see both of them taken down so many notches.

    Love how he continues to remind all of what is working because of the steps that he has taken.

    Now that my POTUS has delivered his speech, I am waiting for the MSM to translate it into English for me and TOLD ME what the PRESIDENT said.

    Curious to see how the media will judge the speech. They usually concentrate on style and superficial things. And the president was simply killing it in style tonight. As for substance, it was masterful.

    Gosh, America is lucky to have a president of this caliber.
