Madame Speaker! The President of the United States

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.

I thought the non-uniformed support

came from the 101st Fighting Keyboardists and the 82nd Chairborne Division? God knows what we would do without their sacrifice in the face of increased Cheetos prices due to war-time shortages.

I heard that particular gem about

civilian volunteers and told hubby - "he's been reading "Mercenary Soldier" magazine again.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world." - Gandhi

Saber rattling

Buckle up, kiddies, this lunatic is well down the road to war in Iran.

This war thing is formulaic for Republicans

We can pretty much connect the dots ourselves.

Patty doesn't know

what Darfur is. He thinks is a new style of PETA approved fur coat.

Patty

He thinks some alley ah is where you find dates.

Good one, Greg.

You're amazing.

Wait

How did Korea get in there, there's no oil in that country. Jesus, where did the speechwriter learn to transition between subjects? Iran, Korea, nu-cu-lur, AIDS, how do you make THAT leap?

That Baby Einstein stuff is crazy

My 2 year old has been addicted to it for too long.
But someone gave it to us as a hand me down. So I don't feel guilty about sending money to a GOP shill.

Damn.

Now I'm sad. Only a few of these movies, but we like them.

Where are the candidates?

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Baby Einstein

brings out the professional early childhood educator in me. Use sparingly, and in small doses! Science doesn't yet know the full impact on brain development of prolonged tv watching by infants and toddlers, but the American Academy of Pediatrics "recommends that children two and under not watch any television at all." One study published in their journal concluded:

Early television exposure is associated with attentional problems at age 7. Efforts to limit television viewing in early childhood may be warranted, and additional research is needed.

Sorry. Can't help myself.

"Be the change you wish to see in the world." - Gandhi

Oh look!

I bet this is where he says that Baby Einstein would not apporve repealing the tax cuts for Ted Turner, Bill Gates, and that guy that owns Florida (and just gave away his entire estate when he dies).

Soldier prop

with both legs and arms intact.

Chickenshit.

TGIO

Thank god it's over. Was a piece of sh*t.

That's it?

Did he say anything that mattered?

God Bless?

You mean...no God Bless the United States of America? Wow....now that's surprising.

Was this short? Or expected length. An hour... seemed short. Maybe I was just having so much fun reading you guys.

Not short enough

Olberman is commenting on MSNBC . . .

Hey look!

They just showed all the Generals that Dumbya has fired for not winning! Why are they there?

Note: If I'm being too snarky, it's all BlueNC's fault. If I had not come to site, I would not have happened onto the liveblogging of the SOTU. So I apolgize if I have been.............overly witty.

Why apologize?

But you do have to promise to repeat the snarkifying every now and then. Helps us get through horrifying events like this.

Bush actually said the words

Global Warming.

I don't think he did. I think he said low ball worming . . . one of those Texas longhorn steer things I assume.

He said Global Climate Change
