Here I am
Hello there, a4A! It’s been a while since we’ve crossed path. Talk to you later, Alice, after our President finishes sweeping the floor with the GOPs.
you got it baby!
trying desperately to keep up with TOD and SOTU at the same time.
And you’re first at it, honey bunch!
Trying, JO’B, trying.
Of course you are! Hi VC!
Tied – congrats to both of ya!
Hi J O’B
President or not #Obama has to be the coolest guy in the room can't help, but admire that type of charisma; can't teach it. #stateoftheunion— J.D. (@iownjd) January 29, 2014
Get those bills to my desk, put more americans back to work.

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
PBO is on fire

Great shout out for our bipartisan #manufacturing bill w @RepTomReed in #SOTU tonight. Agree w Prez – time to get it to the @WhiteHouse!— Rep. Joe Kennedy III (@RepJoeKennedy) January 29, 2014
I can’t keep up – but I like the patent comment – the trolls got to go
Am I dreaming or does the tone of the audience seems upbeat (from the very beginning)?
They are ‘cuz he is
I sense it too VC.
I thought that too. So much for the pundits.
I just mentioned that to #2! He is upbeat and positive, just like I like it. He doesn’t do the ‘woe is me’ stuff. “don’t let nobody turn him around.
VP Joe is smiling cuz he loves what he’s hearing from our President – and so do I
I love my President!
Yes, and he’s firing on all cylinders tonight!
will protect pristine federal lands for future generations.
@chucktodd President Obama is his own man. Plz stop comparing him. Other politicians dream to have his oratory skills. Bill Clinton included— Donna NoShock (@NoShock) January 29, 2014
Thank you Donna. That needed to be said. And Chuck Todd also can have a sit and STFU.
Tell Chuckie to go play in the Freeway!
Thank you Donna…these persons can’t see to help themselves…they are vexed!!!!!!!
Poor Loser Toad…he’ll go from one extreme to the other not to give any credit to PBO
#Bam Go Donna!

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.
yes! Fuels of the future – like that forward thinking!!
What a dynamic speaker. I am sitting on the edge of my seat. Love my President. Hello TOD. Hello Miss Chips.
The very wonderful First Lady at the #SOTU http://t.co/sSfYHgGsU0— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) January 29, 2014
Yes and darling Jill too
Text of the speech here…
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.
climate change is a fact. Eat that loony left.
boner clapping on immigration reforms? wow, hell froze over.
Probably too drunk to know what he’s doing.
Just needs to get out and get a cigarette
He looks like he’s gasping for one – and a bottle or two!
Being – in the past – addicted to nicotine – it’s definitely the cigarettes. The brain curdles when it needs nicotine
” the debate is settled, climate change is a fact!”
The Republicans look completely bewildered.
Right now they have no clue how their silly little “rebuttals” are going to come off….
Badly – very badly – what’s good about no healthcare, no immigration law, selling education to the highest bidder and starving the unemployed
Can’tor applauding for immigration reform. It looks like it’s causing him severe internal pain. Yay
It looked like he was gonna choke.
renew UI, congress.
Yea for the unemployed – why do they all cheer – and then the GOP votes against it
Boom! UEI you let expire…
Restore the UE insurance!
Unemployment insurance that you let expire. Boom!
Restore unemployment benefits. Woot! Woot!
Went there directly about re-instating UI!!
boner has turned into a stone on hearing UI.
I love this push for the unemployed. The Repubs wouldn’t stand for that.
"This Congress needs to restore the unemployment insurance you just let expire for 1.6 million people." #SOTU http://t.co/fOdGNgydi4— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) January 29, 2014
"Let's get immigration reform done this year – it's time." #SOTU http://t.co/3vpKS84t69— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) January 29, 2014
Er, uh, ‘Pubs let me introduce you to your new friends, Rock and Hard Place!
No need to thank him, PBO brought them tonight specifically to keep you company. It’s working already. You just applauded immigration reform.
hahaha LMAO at “Er, uh, ‘Pubs let me introduce you to your new friends, Rock and Hard Place!”
Hi, TODers. Potus is fired up.
access to high quality pre K
” It is right for America; we need to get this done.” regarding education initiatives.
MT @mitchellreports If you're wondering why Jill Biden has arm in sling she fell last week & broke her wrist. #SOTU— Roger Simon (@politicoroger) January 29, 2014
The president just talked about making pre-K available to every four year-old; we're working towards making that happen in Maryland. #SOTU— Martin O'Malley (@GovernorOMalley) January 29, 2014
I hope O’Malley get a chance to run for POTUS in 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He is using the theme of “….while congress figures out WTF they’re gonna do, here’s what I’m gonna do right now”
Yep, that about sums it up.
even boner had to stand up.
Finally……took him awhile…was forced into standing.
YAY – equal pay for equal work!
yes! equal pay!
I LOVE THIS SOTU!!
Equal pay for equal work! Screw Mad Men crap!
Workplace policies that belong in a Mad Men episode – you go Mr. President!!!
Telling the GOP the truth about women
now to min wages.
wow he’s on fire!
Yay women! When women succeed, America succeeds! (were any Repubs applauding?)
You have been tested, you have been measured and you have been found more than worthy!
DUDETTE!!!!!!!!! Wthhub??? We missed you!
Hi Forus! Glad to be back! Missed you and the whole TOD Family!
The wounded officer sitting next to Michelle looks at her so often with love and admiration.
Time to get rid of practices that belong in a Mad Men episode” regarding equal pay and opportunity for women.
mad men gets a knock. Good.
‘I believe when women succeed, America succeeds.’
Rock it, Mr. President!
I LOVE MY PRESIDENT!
Women deserve equal pay for equal work. – President Barack Obama #SOTU 2014— Dudette (@Dudette9t9) January 29, 2014
It is time to do away with workplace policies that belong in a "Mad Men" episode! – President Barack Obama #SOTU 2014— Dudette (@Dudette9t9) January 29, 2014

Mad Men episode – love it!
Love the ‘Mad Men’ comparison…that era has passed. Thank you sir.
I loved that also.
"Women make up half our workforce but they make 77c for every dollar a man earns – that is wrong, & in 2014 it's an embarrassment." #SOTU— TheObamaDiary.com (@TheObamaDiary) January 29, 2014
BTW Punch Pizza’s really good.
Raise that minimum wage. Do you hear that Walmart!
There you go.I am raising the min wages.
Right on amk!
Is this thing on?
Yay Punch Pizza in Minneapolis! Yay Costco! Yay paying employees a decent wage!
warren in blue.
ICYDK, Dr Jill broke her wrist when she fell last week. Nice coverup with lavender pashmina.
“Give America a Raise!” great slogan.
Give america a raise.
Dood is killing it.
Say yes, give America a raise!
Look at those republican assholes sittin on their asses!
give America a raise
Give America a Raise!
I have to say that tonight’s live SOTU audience is getting a good workout!
Much different than the year they all partnered up dem w/pub and not much clapping or standing. I’m glad that only happened once.
Right on Mr. President!!
Man, for a new Obama Waterloo, it seems more like a Midway.— Liberal Librarian (@Lib_Librarian) January 29, 2014
He’s come thru so many of these ‘Waterloos’ and “Katrina’s” and barely got wet. Not that we mind seeing him get wet but….
Why aren’t the democrats cheering their little brains out on health insurance – this is how they will win 2014
they’re working on losing
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.
Boehner looks like he’s sucking on a sour lemon! I’m enjoying seeing him squirm.
Did you see Boner playing with his thumbs.
zero, none, zero americans can be dropped for preexisting conditions.No women can ever be charged more just because she is a woman.
Rethugs would prefer that people get turned down for pre-conditions as evidenced by their lack of applause.
This speech is stunning. Now on Obamacare. OMG.
About time – they cheered
He went there about OBAMACARE! Let’s see what you’ve got!!!
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.
Speaking of long-form, this speech is nearly 7,000 words.— Annie Lowrey (@AnnieLowrey) January 29, 2014
Love how he continues to remind all of what is working because of the steps that he has taken.
O shit, he is going there directly at the repubs about trying to repeal ACA. He is on fire!!!!!!!
Yes! Let’s not have another 40-something votes to repeal a law that’s already helping millions of people like Amanda!
Nice. “@PaulLewis: Tomorrow morning, John Boehner may regret this one > http://t.co/9T6mTK1BtZ (via @byHeatherLong)”— Jim Roberts (@nycjim) January 29, 2014
The President is on fire. #SOTU— (@HumanityCritic) January 29, 2014
I think the whitehouse.gov live feed is about 10 minutes behind everyone else.
I keep seeing tweets about something that POTUS has yet to say on this site.
Reminds me of a Twilight Zone episode, LOL.
Just for a moment there, the cheering after PBO’s comments re healthcare reminded me of POTUS speaking in South Africa.
Yes, this is a very different kind of speech.
Meta, I so, so hope this (SOTU) is the starting point for Congress to pivot. I know GOPs are dense at heart, but am praying SOMEthing strikes a cord with enough of them.
“Citizenship means standing up for the lives gun violence steals from us, every day.”
It should be the power of our vote not the size of our bank account that decides this democracy.
Extraordinary on all fronts: President Barack Obama.
Ain’t nobody like him. We are so lucky. and we have to keep working.
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.
