    Official State of the Union Address Thread

    I hope it is a well written speech. His writers have made him look pretty good the past few years.

    He's so eloquent and clearly demonstrates a complex understanding of complicated ideas. I always look forward to him speaking, it feels like he's channeling the founding fathers and its 1776 all over again!

    I'm hoping this speech is as geared towards domestic issues as the press is saying it's going to be. For right now, there's not much new stuff to offer on Iraq that wasn't said two weeks ago.

    I think everyone was surprised with this speech. He looks like a completely different person than when he addressed the nation from the White House library two weeks ago.

    I took the under... I win!! what do I win?

    he didn't specifically say "9/11", but he alluded to the events "5 years ago" several times.

    You lose and are awarded nothing.

    I gave him a "D".

    No Katrina only the worst natural disaster in American History.

    No timetable for his "new direction" in Iraq

    His bipartisan take was weak. May be due to the fact that it was the first time he had to do it

    No real plan on energy. How many dollars Mr. Bush? We would have to grow a lot more corn if it is only ethanol.

    Foreign Policy is an "Jet plane crash". Hardly mentioned China and Asia as a whole. What about Chavez? What about Cuba after Castro?

    Created 7.2mm jobs at Mc'D's, Taco Bell, Wendy's. Did not mention the 4MM that were lost at the start of this disasterous administration. That only makes 3.7MM jobs in my math.

    Tried to to again tie the War in Iraq to the War on Terror. See yesterdays "War Stories" Thread for more details there.

    What speech did you guys watch?

    I am just going to stop here.

    I got this from PoliticalWire:


    Webb Steals State of the Union Limelight
    “For the first time ever, the response to the State of the Union Message overshadowed the president's big speech,” writes Newsweek. Sen. James Webb (D-VA), “in office only three weeks, managed to convey a muscular liberalism -- with personal touches -- that left President Bush's ordinary address in the dust.”

    “Webb was given a speech to read by the Democratic leadership. He threw it out and wrote his own. As a well-regarded novelist, Webb has a sense of narrative and human drama. He apparently felt that the boots his son wore in Iraq, which he used to great effect during his successful Senate campaign against Sen. George Allen, might be a bit hokey. So instead, he showed a picture of his father during the Berlin airlift. He then went on to describe taking the picture to bed every night and his family's long record of military service.”
