      Notice, 99ts, how Boehner sat on his hands on that one. He absolutely believes the bank account comes first.

        As did Romney. Nationwide — it doesn’t work – sadly it does work in some constituencies.

        The individual wealth of congress members – takes the breath away – they don’t all start out this way – which sure makes me wonder.

    Think the whitehouse.gov site is 10 minutes behind the speech. Keep seeing tweets before POTUS says the words. Reminds me of a Twilight Zone episode, LOL.

    This is the most conversational SOTU speech I’ve ever seen. Using a POTUS lectures Congress, but PBO is actually challenging Congress to action. Love it! Some lame-duck, right, upChuck? So much for Dems to use in 2014 campaigns.

  36. 58 majiir
    January 28, 2014 at 10:04 pm

    PBO has been working with all of the governments he’s talking about. This is why it pisses me off when tools like Romney and Steven Segal praise Putin who doesn’t work 1/100th as hard as PBO does for peace.

    I don’t mean this as mindless hyperbole. I have thought about all the SOTU’s I’ve heard or watched in my almost 64 years in this life.

    This is the best SOTU I’ve ever heard.

    Thank you, Mr. President.

  45. 74 CEB
    January 28, 2014 at 10:07 pm

    Of course, the msm wing of the republican party will have completely different portrayal of what PBO is saying and what the majority of those watching really think about what he has said. As usual, I will skip that mess. Also skipping the four repub. rebuttals (so interesting that it takes 4 of them to try to go against one).

    • 79 57andfemale
      January 28, 2014 at 10:14 pm

      That’s John’s McCain fatal flaw: he thinks that could have been him. Never in any place in the universe could John McCain be 1/1000th of PBO.

    • 80 Dudette
      January 28, 2014 at 10:24 pm

      John McCain is a cranky old fart. He should step down from the Senate and go away quietly.Thank goodness the America people saw he was long past his prime and, by far, nowhere near the man Barack Obama is!

    If JFK and raygun can negotiate with soviet union, we can deal with much less powerful Iran.

    It’s just occurred to me that maybe the GOP politicians who bring ‘weird’ guests to the SOTU are unconsciously being ‘patriotic’. I’m suddenly thinking that the Duck people who were invited tonight have had the best opportunity to LISTEN to the President, maybe for the first time! ;) ;)

    That republican woman is just reciting platitudes. “we have solutions”, “we have plans”…. and she doesn’t give any specifics.

    Wow, the contrast with the president is … embarrassing. For republicans. What an empty speech she gave. And the poor woman is not a speaker.

    Rev. Al had the most brilliant expression: she was like a Hallmark card. Good one ha ha ha…
