    Full Transcript of the State of the Union can be found here

    We gather tonight knowing that this generation of heroes has made the United States safer and more respected around the world. For the first time in nine years, there are no Americans fighting in Iraq. For the first time in two decades, Osama bin Laden is not a threat to this country. Most of al Qaeda’s top lieutenants have been defeated. The Taliban’s momentum has been broken, and some troops in Afghanistan have begun to come home.

    These achievements are a testament to the courage, selflessness, and teamwork of America’s Armed Forces. At a time when too many of our institutions have let us down, they exceed all expectations. They’re not consumed with personal ambition. They don’t obsess over their differences. They focus on the mission at hand. They work together
    Transcript of Republican Response

    The status of "loyal opposition" imposes on those out of power some serious responsibilities: to show respect for the Presidency and its occupant, to express agreement where it exists. Republicans tonight salute our President, for instance, for his aggressive pursuit of the murderers of 9/11, and for bravely backing long overdue changes in public education. I personally would add to that list admiration for the strong family commitment that he and the First Lady have displayed to a nation sorely needing such examples.

    On these evenings, Presidents naturally seek to find the sunny side of our national condition. But when President Obama claims that the state of our union is anything but grave, he must know in his heart that this is not true.

    Yes. Boehner looks like he's having an enema.

    Re: State of the Union Address

    Obama is a windbag.

    There is nothing of substance in any of this. It sounds good, all he speaks about is the gov't funding a bunch of crap. We don't have the money, bonehead. You spent it all. Get away from "the gov't is the answer to the countries problems" and change it to "the gov't is the SOURCE of the countries problems" and then people might want to listen to you.

    I'm lagging since I'm watching it on DVR, so far Obama has been preaching that we should reduce the corporate tax rate. Is this real life?

    Re: State of the Union Address

    Frankly, why bother to watch a speech that will sound like virtually every other speech or news conference we've heard for the past 3 years? Class warfare is his mantra, and division is his main gig. It gets pretty boring.

    So you'd rather watch a man receive and enema than a woman have an orgasm? Interesting.

    You mean like the class warfare Fox political entertainers are pitching?

    Such silliness.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: State of the Union Address

    Asks for a bill to ban insider trading by congress and he'd sign it tomorrow.

    For those of you who do not know about this...




    A bunch of other proposals of getting money out of politics that sounded great. Not expecting much on it though.

    Did Obama just ban the G.E.D?
