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.

They will return with the honor they have earned. Did he just slap Kerry?

Iraqis have earned our respect?

What the?? Shouldn't that be the other way around?? Who did all the damn fighting?

Sure, Iraqis have won our respect, by coming out and voting under threat of death.

You've got to be joking?

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.

I'll bring one back. I love this one ---

MIDI - DANCES WITH WOLVES - first version

I thank God that I am here…I am grateful

This is my country…land that I love
We have been blessed by God from above
Though it's old-fashioned…when flags pass by
I'm overcome…I wipe my eyes

I love America…celebrate America
I love America…freedom is America
I love America…celebrate America
I love America…freedom is America

When the others are too frightened…we must lead the way
We give hope to huddled masses for a brighter day

This is my country…land of my birth
It is the greatest…country on earth
Though it's old-fashioned…when flags pass by
I'm overcome…I wipe my eyes

I love America…we are blessed here in America
Freedom rings here in America…freedom rings here in America

I love America…we are blessed here in America
Freedom rings here in America…freedom rings here in America

We're the light of the world…light of the world

For the last damn time, troll, we didn't do all of the fighting. Others have fought, the Iraqis have fought, the coalition partners have fought.

I think your screen name is perfectly apropos, cause I and perhaps others of us, have Hadenuf of you. Go take your freedom of speech and p*ss on someone else's Cheerios.

"I can`t wait to hear the hysteria from the left."

The left has already written their criticisms, to be published within hours after this speech. I know that it It kills them to have to wait.

I was just there, they are crying about the SS math that W was doing. I think they do not want to comment on the speech because that would mean that they recognize Bush as president.

Here is a quote from one of the smarter ones named Raincents.

"I can't stand watching him!!! I want to vomit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Go Bush! He is on fire tonight!

There must be a flu going around in the Rat Party...they are all looking sickly.

How much I'd love to slap each one of them that didn't stand up and cheer when Sophia held up her peace sign.

I'm seeing red, and it ain't the President's tie.

President Bush gave his answer to Dusty Reid and Nancy Pelosi. "NO! I AM NOT GOING TO SET A TIMETABLE FOR LEAVING IRAQ", and telling them why was just magnificently put....easily understoood, for even those two partisan pricks.
