Yahoo has a live feed of the speech.
The administration’s cabinet members just marched in. Secretary of State John Kerry (Lurch) led the way.
President Obama just entered the chamber followed by Majority leader Cantor and Nancy Pelosi.
Obama did greet Senator Kirk from Illinois, who suffered a stroke last year, when he walked to the podium.
HERE WE GO…….
Obama just opened up mentioning the Constitution. That was weird… considering his policies.
Obama announced that are men and women are coming home after a decade of war.
The Taliban are celebrating in their caves.
Obama is bragging about the economy.
Says, “The State of Our Union is Strong.”
Here is the truth.
“The American people don’t expect us to solve every problem.”
Really? Tell that to the 47% .
Obama claims government has cut $2 trillion from the deficit.
Then he says we can’t go ahead with the sequester – that was his idea.
The first straw man- GOP wants to cut Medicare.
Someone explain to me again… How did we get this community organizer as president?
Obama really believes the crisis is that the GOP wants to cut the spending – and not the spending.
Does anyone really believe this guy when he talks economics? After the worst recovery and worst jobs record since the Great Depression?
Obama: “We produce more energy at home than ever before.”
(No thanks to him.)
Climate change! Drink!
Obama: Fact is the hottest 12 years came in the last 15. Fact.
Fact: Global warming stopped 16 years ago.
Three feet of global warming fell on parts of Connecticut just a few days ago, Obama.
Obama: High quality preschool for every US child… How much will that cost?
Just wondering, is there anything Obama thinks a family should have to pay for themselves?
Immigration reform (Drink)
Obama: We will complete the task in Afghanistan by defeating Al-Qaeda… And turning country over to the Taliban.
Obama: We beat Al-Qaeda… sort of… Well some of them… except for Africa, Arabian Peninsula, Iraq, Syria….
Obama: We can’t deny Americans the right to vote. Tell Melowese.
Obama Forgot to Give a Shout-Out to All the Illegal Aliens in the House.
Obama recognizes 102 year-old voter…. It’s not clear how many times she voted.
Hopefully she’ll slip past the death panel before next election.
Thank goodness it’s over.
