Posted on 01/28/2014 4:09:11 PM PST by kristinn

Tuesday night live on C-SPAN, President Obama outlines his agenda for the coming year when he delivers his fifth State of the Union Address before a Joint Session of Congress.

Leading up to the President's speech, C-SPAN sets the scene from the White House and Capitol Hill with perspectives from Former Speechwriter to President Obama Jon Lovett, Senate Historian Don Ritchie, and Gallup Editor in Chief Frank Newport.

Following the State of the Union, House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) delivers the Republican response. McMorris Rodgers is in her fifth term representing Washington’s Fifth District.

C-SPAN's live coverage concludes with viewer calls as well as reaction from social media. Share your thoughts via phone, Facebook and Twitter using #cspanchat.

The TV news is softening up the audience by describing Obama’s new and bold strategy as “bypassing Congress through executive order”. Greasing the skids of tyranny.

That's how their reporting all the rest of Obama news too.

If you ever read Obamacare and unemployment stories, it's reported with a gentle, nondescript tone. It's designed to make the reader become indifferent.

Chad Henderson, the first FAKE ObamaCare enrollee, will be at the State Of The Coup address tonight as a guest of Congressman Steve Stockman. Below is a photo posted on Twitter which supposedly shows that Henderson has become a real ObamaCare enrollee. However, look carefully at the pic. It only shows that he has received a premium bill, not PAID for it. Therefore it seems that his status remains that of a FAKE ObamaCare enrollee.

Is it true that halfway through the speech, a bunch of homosexuals will be led into the room so Obama can pretend to marry them while Biden and Boehner sing “Same Love” in the background?

That kind of stuff happens a lot on tv these days, I hear.

The pRes_ _ent is Indonesian with fake SS#s,
a history of registering as a foreign student, and
no other documentation except a cornucopia of treason
under his belt.

But the hated US Congress was given EXEMPTION
from ObamaCARE and other Laws (which they pass for
their subjects) so they just do not care.

I’d be happy to volunteer but I cut off the cable this weekend, only have an antenna for local stations, all of which are in Spanish, and I don’t speak Spanish so.....

Really hoping that right after Wilson does a shout out of “You lie”, the Duck Dynasty guy lets loose with a loud duck call.

You could count all the flakes in Congress and DC that will be attending and watching tonight and find way more than those that fell in the Houston area today during our massive emergency winter shutdown.

Tonight's SOTU in one headline:

OBAMA LASHES OUT AT CONGRESS FOR OBSTRUCTING HIS COMMUNIST AGENDA!

FREEPERS BEWARE: Obama's speech tonight is probably not for your consumption. It's a declaration of War on Congress and our Constitution masquerading as a crusade for the neglected and abused (females and Hispanics). Make no mistake, tonight's 'food for the sheep' is a blatant declaration of war.

War on Women, Income Inequality, and 'Abuse'.. Boooo-hoooo hooooo the tears are going to flow tonight, baby!

I will not be watching the shuck-and-jive performance. Economy is in the toilet, healthcare access is a mess, going to the grocery store is stressful because of the cost.

Does Obama ever give an interview with anyone not ‘in the tank’ for him? His upcoming interview with O’Reilly is a big THANK YOU for going easy on him, and also INSURANCE that O’Reilly CONTINUE TO GO EASY ON HIM IN ORDER TO GUARANTEE FUTURE INTERVIEWS. You know that.

Haven’t watched or listened to a SOTU in probably 15 years - always find something to do like wash the cat.

Do always read the transcript the next morning - can’t find any more cats to wash...
