State of the Union Open Thread. Update!

I am probably only going to be able to hang in here for only part of this speech as I have things to do tonight. However I will try to stay on top of the comments so all of you can share and discuss your impressions.

I actually think this speech is going to be rather incredible, as this President is clearly determined to go out with a bang and not a whimper.

Here is a clip of the interview that the President did this morning on the Today Show concerning the speech.

CNN thinks that Obama is paving the way for another Clinton Presidency.

There will be an empty seat in the First Lady's box in remembrance of the victims of gun violence.

Kentucky county clerk, Kim Davis, will be there for some odd reason. 

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will be giving the conservative rebuttal to the SOTU so that ought to be good for a laugh or two.


As always I will be drunkenly tweeting my responses which can be seen here.

My personal hope is that at about the halfway point Obama just rips off his tie, grabs onto the podium, and just goes off on a expletive riddled rant about the obstructionism and dirty tricks used by the Republicans during the last seven years that leaves them all stunned and slack jawed.

I doubt that will happen, but still a boy's got to dream.

Update:

Update 2: Here is the full transcript.

      Mildred, you and I are kindred souls. I mentioned this last fall and, boy, was I ever taken to task over it!

      I truly fear what this election will bring if the GOP wins in November. Best president of my lifetime (58).

Now, back to the President, a decent, intelligent human being who tried his best to help people with no voice, against horrible odds in DC.

    3. Hope it's as successful as Jindal's and, was it Rubio who couldn't get through the speech without guzzling water?

      Yeah, how the GOP can pick such mentally challenged losers to rebute I don't know. Maybe they've got the behind the scenes puppetmasters quickly composing the rebuttal and just need a puppet to read it.

      Hell, Rubio couldn't even do that right.

      Wonder if they're thinking of putting Haley up for VP this year or running her in 2020. Seems like the rebuttal is their test flight for new meat.

    Nikki Hayley! Youngest gov in the Union! Speaking for the GOP. Rips your heart out, doesn't it, Sarah. She is not calling you for support now, is she. Yeah once, when pundits thought you were relevant. But not now. HAHAHAHAH.

    Loved his speech and being more candid than usual and also speaking big-picture future. Loved how he stuck it to Trump. Funny, but Trump, who always announces that he's going to live blog something, didn't do it tonight and only managed one tweet saying that the speech was boring and lethargic. He's so pathetic.

      You know who looked bored? Marco. I swear he was on the verge of falling asleep. Can you imagine him (or anyone GOP, frankly) giving a 75 minute speech that made an iota of sense? Haley couldn't hang in there for 15 minutes, and she's had two months to prepare.

    “I told you earlier all the talk of America’s economic decline is political hot air. Well, so is all the rhetoric you hear about our enemies getting stronger and America getting weaker. The United States of America is the most powerful nation on Earth. Period. It’s not even close. We spend more on our military than the next eight nations combined. Our troops are the finest fighting force in the history of the world. No nation dares to attack us or our allies because they know that’s the path to ruin. Surveys show our standing around the world is higher than when I was elected to this office, and when it comes to every important international issue, people of the world do not look to Beijing or Moscow to lead – they call us.”

    Our brand of democracy is hard. But I can promise that a year from now, when I no longer hold this office, I’ll be right there with you as a citizen – inspired by those voices of fairness and vision, of grit and good humor and kindness that have helped America travel so far. Voices that help us see ourselves not first and foremost as black or white or Asian or Latino, not as gay or straight, immigrant or native born; not as Democrats or Republicans, but as Americans first, bound by a common creed. Voices Dr. King believed would have the final word – voices of unarmed truth and unconditional love.

They were after Susanna Martinez until she turned into a drunk. But it will be a white male, because that's the only race and gender the powers that be really trust....count on it.

    I have been torn about whether to watch the State of the Union address. It's always uplifting to hear this intelligent, insightful man, and so painful to see the blatant disrespect shown him by the Republicans. Michelle looked spectacular; how proud she must be of her husband, yet sad at the disrespect, the lies, the lost opportunities. He has done so much, but he could have done so much more with just the barest amount of civility and cooperation on the part of the Republicans. Sigh... Nikki Haley was predictably ridiculous.

    USA Today:
    Haley: Yes, Trump is one of the 'angriest voices'

    The morning after her televised response to President Obama's State of the Union speech, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley confirmed Wednesday that fellow Republican Donald Trump is among the "angriest voices" she denounced.

    "He was one of them, yes," Haley said on NBC's Today show. "There's other people in the media, there's people in my state. I think we're seeing it across the country.

    "But yes, Mr. Trump has definitely contributed to what I think is just irresponsible talk."

    In her speech late Tuesday, the South Carolina governor said that, "during anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. We must resist that temptation."

    Haley has criticized Trump, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, over his call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States.

    Obama’s State Of The Union Dominance Leaves Trump Whining And Whimpering To Fox News

    A weak and broken Donald Trump could only whine and whimper to Fox News after the rationale for his entire campaign was destroyed by President Obama at the State Of The Union.

    Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy said that Obama doesn’t seem to like Trump. The Republican front runner replied, “I would say that’s probably true. He probably does not. You know, not very important to me, but I would say he probably doesn’t.”

    .... Donald Trump lacks the ability to shift the conversation in policy terms. Trump only understands personal attacks and smears. Unlike his fellow Republican presidential candidates, the Democrats refuse to be baited into a battle of personal attacks. ...

Today, Trump went on a pissfest rant over Nikki Hailey's "loudest voices" comment, and they both got their claws out like cats in a bubble bath. Have at it, idiots. We all saw one or two adults in that entire room, none, I repeat none of them were republicans.
