very inspiring speech, reflecting on the crap we had to put up with and what we have changed. progress comes slow because some of us dont want to move forward. we will bring them along with us into the future, kicking and screaming like children, for a better future.

The Republicans at the time were well known RINOS.

And Clinton was in on the scam.



You know good and well that the GOP is in the tank for private industry. Don't play stupid, it is too transparent


Democrats are in deeper and for more $$$$$

The president simply worded things different that's all.It all boils down to the same things:God Bless America,The Sate of The Empire is strong,Our military is the greatest in the world but needs more money and power,ditto the intelligence community.ISIS and Al Qeda are coming to eat the kids and so is Russia.

Obama is doing well and I'm glad that his last SOTU address has been a bit of a middle-finger to his haters.

Like his policies or not, he's doing well.


Good to hear. I've been following you on some subjects. You are one of the few who keep it real and honest.

It's almost impossible to get a real public perspective on Obama's presidency with so many negative reactionarys. That "fact thingy" is usually missing, ya know.

His effect will be evaluated over the years to come. I expect Obama's rating will surprise many.

Oh, and I don't have TV and my internet is too flakey lame for live feed.

I'll check back.



Overall, it was a pretty good speech.

You could tell it was his last SOTU because he highlighted his accomplishments in office and gave his rivals a big "FU". He didn't outline very much of what he planned to do the rest of his term, but there really isn't much he can do. Without a supportive congress, he will just float on cruise control until the next president is inaugurated.

I'm glad he focused on the hate and ignorant rhetoric that seems to be building in the US. So much hate these days and I'm surprised that some people can't see it or just dismiss it outright. That seems to be the most pressing issue I think we need to deal with, or we may see Americans turning on each other.

Anyway, you can tell the speech was pretty good by the responses from the Republicans and how Fox News fumbled their analysis of it. It was reminiscent of how they dropped the journalistic ball when Obama was elected to a 2nd term. Pitiful to say the least.

LOL This is the equivalent as saying, we will take you prisoner, you will comply and we will do it by force, but don't worry you will like it, trust us we know better.

Naw no totalitarianism here.

It conflicts with my schedule. Besides, even if I was home I would be binge watching my PVR'd shows since it will screw up every channel.

Me too. I was a Republican for about 40 years. Up until it was taken over by the Neo-Cons, Tea Partiers, and Christian Fundamentalists.

What we have today (on the Right) is a bunch of Self Indulgent Spoiled Brats - - that act like 3 year old: "If I can't have it my way - - no one gets anything".

Jerry Brown (I live in CA) said when he first entered politics, you arranged a meeting, sat down with a cocktail, and hashed it out until you reached a compromise. He said today all you get is a door slammed in your face. The opposition has no interest in conversation.

I am a progressive futurist (also fiscal conservative, social liberal) - - which means I believe in "movement" - - not stagnation because you can't get your way.

What we have in DC today is pure insanity. The Republicans are just plain wrong in their actions.

And NO! I am not a Democrat.

Progressive futurist, fiscal conservative, social liberal? LOL! Wow! How do you reconcile the desire for Big Bloated Government Programs with fiscal conservatism?

Many people have the mistaken idea that a conservative wants stagnation. That is simply not true. It is a lie the left uses to further their silly meme that liberals move forward while conservatives want to keep the status quo. It is the methods, management, and ideals that are at issue.

You can interpret what I said anyway you want. It's still your interpretation.

But, we HAVE stagnation. That's a fact.

The Right could stop fighting against Civil Rights and Right of Choice. So much money wasted.

Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them.”

Very creative! That garb that the lady at the bottom slightly to the left of Joe in your collage was wearing was too funny. That's what you call dressed to the nines! I wanted to see her shoes so badly! So many people looked like they were on the verge of falling asleep. Very few, including Dims...I mean, Dems...were smiling.
