State of the Union / Open Thread, Updated with Governor Palin’s Remarks #TPSOTU

Obama’s State of the Union theater is supposed to begin at 9:00 (EST). But it’s not like he’s known for his punctuality on, well, anything at all.  But nevertheless, our fearless leader will eventually take the lectern tonight, read from his trusty teleprompter, and drone on and on (and on and on). Substance wise, the Washington Post has received some excerpts and, as you’d expect, there’s nothing other than the usual left-wing platitudes, dissembling, and blame shifting we’ve been hearing ever since this guy took office, a point Governor Palin made earlier today with her "Groundhog Day" tweet.  Anyway, for those with a strong stomach, we’ve embedded the live feed for tonight’s sermon via the White House YouTube channel below:

And finally, Senator Mike Lee’s Tea Party response:

    Ted Cruz SLAMS Obama lawlessness in new video: Abuse of Power

  • conservativemama

    Bill O’Reilly and Marco Rubio were just on Fox and they both missed the point. They’re arguing why does Obama mistrust the private sector, why doesn’t he know that jobs are created in the private sector.

    Missing the point BIG TIME! Even if he knows that the private sector is the engine of growth, it doesn’t matter to Obama and his type. They want control. They want power. They want to own us, to manage us, to control us. That is the end game of the Left. They don’t measure success the way we do. Success for them is do they control most of everything? Do they write the rules? Do they enjoy greater power at our expense?

    How is it that people still miss this key point about leftists? Remember when Charles Gibson pointed out to Obama that lower taxes bring more revenue to the government. It didn’t matter to Obama. Economic common sense means nothing to Obama. His measurement isn’t money, it’s power.

    Leftists envy what they cannot achieve on their own. So they take it from those that have. And they cannot have a world where their brilliance is not rewarded, so they take the power and riches that they cannot achieve. And they cannot achieve what free people in a free market can, so they have to destroy freedom because freedom doesn’t elevate them, it throws them in with the masses. And they cannot have that. In order to look as though they have succeeded, they have to destroy those that have. They have to get rid of the evidence of their failures. They have to destroy the success that happens in spite of them, outside of their control.

    And isn’t this why they must destroy Gov. Palin? She doesn’t fit in their mold at all. In fact, she’s a nuclear bomb to their mold.

    It’s all so obvious.

      Fox News continues to bring out the same tired voices and excludes Tea Party representation on Wallace’s, Baier’s etc panels -where is the fair and balanced discussion and debate

      I continue to write Fox News and, specifically, Baier and Wallace – but nothing changes

      Excellent comment, cm.

      • conservativemama

        Thank you.

  • conservativemama

    Now it’s O’Reilly and Krauthammer and again, missing the obvious. They’re discussing why doesn’t Obama work with Republicans, schmooze like Reagan and Tip O’Neill did. Krauthammer says Obama knows that words alone don’t change anything.

    Really? You think Obama has learned something, because I don’t. O’Reilly blathering on.

    Here’s what I think. Obama has no skill set………… anything. He’s not an orator. A true orator doesn’t need a teleprompter. A true orator doesn’t stumble and fumble when speaking extemporaneously. He’s not brilliant. A brilliant person doesn’t bitterly cling to an ideology that has never worked anywhere on the planet. Nowhere. He’s not kind. A kind person doesn’t speak about those he disagrees with with such venom. He’s the president for God’s sake and this conservativemama is insulted by him on a daily basis.

    All of his life has been a free ride. He’s been handed everything and never asked to earn anything. He is stuck in the toddler stage, where the universe is him and nothing and no one else matters. He doesn’t want to hear the word no. He doesn’t know how to share.

    Obama cannot be a great president because he has no skills in anything. If he were a 20-something in his economy, he’d be unemployed. He is a man of no achievement.

    2014 is going to be a year of response, just not what the President thinks its going to be.

    I will give everyone’s weight in gold if he says, "drill baby drill."

  • Gpoupa

    All I’ve heard so far is what government can do for me.

  • hrandym

    I don’t think I can endure the lies and misrepresentations. I’ll wait for the responses. Hope they are on target. It’ll take longer to respond than it takes B. Hussein to upchuck his speech. Sorry, I really have a hard time even listening to him, much less seeing him as well. He has done such horrors to this beautiful Nation. Did I hear him say "cut deficits in half"? Well, . . . . OK. He is taking advantage of the First Amendment. He can say whatever he wants.

  • JDCampbell

    You don’t want to watch this while eating dinner.


    I’m not watching it, — can’t stand to look at, or listen to him. Evidently no one else is either, — years ago we were all typing furiously, commenting. As I recall, a whole bunch of us — now I don’t care, I just want him to go away.

    • jester2939

      Right on.

      • Sine_Labore_Nihil

        Data in says this was the least watched SOTU since the rapist in chief Billy C’s final SOTU in 2000. Moreover, the Tweetisphere was heavily dominated by conservatives and Tea Party peeps. This shows the uninformed voters were mostly playing their video games and smoking their crack and weed they bought from food stamps instead of hearing what they have voted for and what he is doing to destroy our freedoms, constitution, and economy.

  • Gpoupa

    Over 20 minutes in and still not one word on how to unleash American ingenuity.

  • hrandym

    The immigration system is not broken. It is not being enforced, and B. Hussein is in charge of enforcement. Go figure.

  • hrandym

    Calling on Joe Biden? Yes! He da Man!

    Choke . . gag . . . BARF!

  • friskyness

    There is more to life than Obama………..I’ll pass…………………..

  • excopconservative

    I’m watching the Bay Area traffic cam and weather. Every 10 minutes I look at the networks and he’s STILL talking.

  • hrandym

    What a cheap ploy! Taking advantage of the pain and suffering, as well as the dedication to service, of a wounded veteran in order to give some shine to his deplorable presentation!

    • Sine_Labore_Nihil

      Also take note there was no mention of the wounded veterans heroism or anything about his service, it was all about his being a victim. He was made a tool for Oblammer to hang out there for Oblammer’s warped benefit though I think most of us could see right through the false show Oblammer depicted.

  • Sine_Labore_Nihil

    In conclusion, a totally empty speech with little or no substance.
