President Obama's State of the Union Speech

I have to say that he hit a grand slam out of the park and into the street 3 blocks away. It was classic Obama.

My highlights
-He stressed importance of science, education and technology
-Gave teachers a shout out for respect and pissed on no child left behind
-Boehner. Oh god, how I love this guy with the crystal martini set sitting out in front of him. Let your emotions go Mr. Speaker, let it all out!
-Mixing everyone up with the seating was awesome!!

What do you guys think? Am I being an Obama apologist again?

    ‘Am I being an Obama apologist again?”

    it’s too complicated for a simple answer to that question.

    i’d say he’s a tiny bit better than “W” was, which is faint praise indeed.

    Hey everyone, introducing Jim, a fellow fan of Sam Seder and bluerootsradio.com

    Nice to see you here Jim! Thanks for the comment. I imagine most of the folks who visit this site agree with you…me I have come to believe President Obama is a mastermind, working with the cards we are dealt in this fucked up country.

    You may be right, he may just be a tiny bit better in reality, since he is barely turning the ship….but as an image, he is orders of magnitude better.

    How’s it going, Jim?

    I didn’t watch it. Although I read that the theme was “Win The Future” i.e. WTF

    In all serious, what is that in front of Boehner? Decanters? Essential oils and perfumes?

  • Jimmy Reefercake

    Uila, what is up brother? Well, if you want to watch it there it is emebedded ATH style. Or if you read my summary, there it is. Home run.

    I hear you, but for me its a big deal to listen to what the president says. I mean when Bush was president, you could literally recite what he said and people would be like, “no way, thats fucked up!” it is much better now to have a figurehead that presents an image that we can be proud of.

    That my friend is a crytalk martini set. I am starting to love Boehner. More and more everyday. I don’t care how much of a moron he is, there is something about that fragility that makes me think he just may have the ability to care about others.

    more importantly, uila, have you listened to “pre-existing condition?” get your baseline kickin’

  • Jimmy Reefercake

    High speed rail…avoid the patdown.

  • M.Uila

    BOOM shock-a-lock!!

  • Jimmy Reefercake

    holy shit, if he didn’t squeeze through he would have been crushed by the next dude.

    I take it by this video, you considered the speech more of a slam dunk than a home run, eh, uila?

    I believe those decanters contained bronzer….he’s built up such a tolerance that it must be constantly applied.
