STATE OF THE UNION -- 2005 [Live Thread]
2/2/05

Posted on 02/02/2005 3:43:44 PM PST by Timeout

The pre-spin: Bush will spend about 1/2 the speech on foreign policy, 1/2 on domestic, with heavy emphasis on Social Security reform. It's said he will provide a detailed tutorial on the SS system and its problems with a few details on his personal accounts proposal.

Laura's guests are said to be an Afghan voter and an Iraqi voter (too bad there's no Ukrainian wearing an orange hat!).

Should we start a drinking game on how many times the pool camera swings to Hillary? Hmmm. Probably not...it would likely hamper out typing ability.

Word on the blogs has it that the closing part of the speech is a hum-dinger. Set your VCR's.

Report here on outrageous MediaCrat spin before AND after the SOTU. Pictures and screen caps welcome.

Many of us disagee with the President on immigration policy. Nothing new was mentioned tonight. We've debated that at length. We will continue to do so. Let's not turn this thread into a bicker fest.

Those of you who join me in disagreeing with the President on immigration, let's be reasoned in our approach here.

Thanks.

Is McCain smart enough to realize that if ALL REPUBLICANS hold to this outline, the democrat opposition is GONE?

Are any RINOs smart enought to understand what Bush is handing them on a silver platter?


Dare I say this speech is REAGANESQUE?!!!

Border security and immigration issue got 10 seconds.

"Missed it. Must've happened during the time I was in a state of shock over all the "fiscal responsibility" talk."

Just goes to show, in politics one can say anything and party groupies will applaud wildly.

Seeing how he never had one to begin with he hasn't had to dump anything.

I'm actually pretty pleased that Dean will be party chairman. Most of the "normal" Dems I know (the Joe Lieberman/Zell Miller types) are really upset about this situation. They were also pissed as hell that Robert Byrd was so vocal against Condi.
