Tonight I will attempt to live blog the State of the Union Address.....without cussing.
Madame Speaker! I wonder if Nancy will be able to refrain from slapping Dubya upside the head.
Dubya enters the room and the last ten people who like him - Jean Schmidt and John Boehner among them - clap and shake his hand.
The applause is slow and labored. Dubya looks nervous. He should. I jus saw Liddy....really bad highlight job.
Follow below the fold for a running thread...
Madame Speaker calls Congress to order. Madame Speaker presents Dubya and she gets a huge round of applause. :)
The Pres speaks and says it is an honor to begin his speech with "Madame Speaker". Cheney stands and applauds. He congratulates her and she gets a standing O.
Pray for Tim Johnson and Charlie Norwood.
He congratulates the Democrat majority....Democratic dummy.
Spend the people's money wisely....done failed it.
Solve problems today and not save for future generations....ooops....messed this one up already too.
"Our citizens don't really care which side of the aisle we sit on as long as we are willing to cross that aisle when there is work to be done." SDRight, Dubya....riiiight
"The economy is strong and we will keep it that way with enterprise and not more government."
When he said we must balance the federal budget, Charlie Rangel cracked up. Dubya said we can balance the budget without raising taxes. A few Republicans pulled their heads out of their hindends to give a cheer.
Earmarks slipped into bills in the last hour when not even C-span is watching. Oh....and that would be the party in power dropping those earmarks into these bills....that would be YOUR REPUBLICAN MAJORITY....er...your EX Republican majority.
To keep the economy strong we must take on the challenge of entitlements. If we don't take care to keep medicare and social security our children will be faced with huge deficits, huge tax increases or huge cuts in benefits. SD Two out of three on your watch Dubya....two out of three.
Pelosi stood to applaud all children having affordable available healthcare.
Uh Oh...two new initiatives.
Standard tax deductions for people buying health care.
Changing the tax code is a vital step in making health insurance more affordable to more Americans. SD WHAT?
Oh...here we go....Health Savings Accounts
Medical Liability Reform
OK....he's groveling to the base right now. He needs his numbers up. Taxes, runaway law suits, entitlement programs....
OK...sorry...can't make it through without cussing....hold your ears....*%&$#*&^%)$(*$&^#(*%)#$*&^@@*&%%*#
OK...Global Climate Change is real folks...Dubya mentioned it in the SOTU....of course, he mentioned WMD in a SOTU a few years back and they weren't real.
(*#$%*&%^$(*$ war #(*&%$#(*&(& evil #(*%&^#)($*&scarrrrrry$#(*%&$*&^#(*&bad Osama#(%(*$&%#$(*&Party of Fear#%$*&*&^$#*&%^
You must be afraid ....be very afraid....OF IRAN. Here we go. Building up to war with IRan......
No way asshole. We won't let you waste another American life on a war that should never have been. We sure as hell won't let you waste lives and money going to war with Iran.
"We must remove the conditions that inspire hate." Great. Resign. You're a failure as a president and you're a failure as an American.
I'm done for. I'm keeping it in comments. I can't take this anymore.
