Who's Watching the State of the Union Address With Us?

Who's Watching the State of the Union Address With Us?

It's President Bush's last State of the Union Address. We're watching the pre-game show on the fantastic C-SPAN, and playing our exclusive SOTU Scavenger Hunt. Turn on the tube and play along! We'll be here, let us know what he says that moves you. Are you standing and clapping with Pelosi, or Cheney?

I thought it was a good last State of the Union address. Powerful, informative, decisive, humorous at times, matter of fact. Did anyone catch him rubbing that bald dudes head when they first walked in.Whats with grown men and women wanting his autograph? on a hat, or on a piece of paper, its kinda wierd.

Did someone mention Bush has another year? How long does it take to elect a President? Seems its been forever already.

I'm glad some of the troops are coming home. After watching Bush's speech I basically felt like none of what he said really matters, it sort of amounted to nothing. Although, I did like his rant against earmarking. I think lawmakers should be more honest and not just shove a bunch of pet projects in the back door.

No way man. I'd end up wanting to throw something at the tv. Plus I'm sure they clapped after every sentence. I like this condensed, commented version much better.

Oh, I missed the State of the Union Address, and I was so looking forward to it. I had to take my little brother to Salt Lake City, Ut, to leave for boot camp tomorrow. This seemed like so much fun, why didn't we get to do this during all of those debates? I really just wish they didn't want to send troops into every freaking country..My husband is a Marine, currently in Iraq, and I want him to come home not go to Pakistan or Iran or where every W wants us that day. Stressful.

Aside from the smirk, did anyone else catch his wink(s)? WTF? And the first time I saw the Prime Minister's Questions, I definitely wondered aloud why WE don't have something like that in this country. It would be SO good ... especially for Bush. Those attacks are pure brutal!!!

Ok so this little blogging commentary of yours was MOST entertaining! I didn't watch the SOTU, don't plan on it, after reading the wonderful biting commentary my sides hurt. Good job ladies. Onabanana - did you ever know that your my hero?

I'm so with you wackadoodle, the SOTU has nothing on the Prime Minister's questions. Those brits know how to make government good entertainment! Us with all our clapping...yawn. Unfortunately, I was working and missed the whole thing, but I did catch GWB walking out of the chamber and his interaction with Barney Frank. GWB was signing autographs and Barney grabbed him. GWB has his pen out, but Barney didn't want an autograph. Bush hugged him and whispered something and Barney pushed him away. Comedy. No love lost between those two.

i hope others stayed on to listen to the democratic response. i had never heard of kathleen sebelius, d-governor from kansas, but her message was very compelling and delivered so easily, that she really puts bush's oratorical style to shame. if you get a chance check it out. as for whether i'm optimistic. yes, i am. i would hate to think that in the next 350+ days congress / the president wouldn't work together to at least get a more permanent solution in place for the economy. the stimulus package is only a band-aid.

I think I developed some morbid crush on Dick Cheney. He seemed to not give a chit about anything GW said.

I think Americans are slowly starting to wake up. In fact, I think President Bush has done a remarkable job in making people so pissed off that they will begin to start paying attention and go out and make a difference.

I always feel hopeful about the United States but it is going to take years and a very strong next President and Congress to get us out of the mess he will leave behind.
