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.
Agreed, THANK YOU GOD, THANK YOU OHIO!
"I have no respect for any people that stand by for *decades* under brutal oppression and tyranny, waiting for someone else to come in and fight their fight."
Battered wife syndrome. Now grow up.
haha.......ok, lay off poor Peggy now....she got the message I think.......
You could hear a THUNK sound in the next room, like a small hammer hitting a coconut.
Nefertiti was MUCH better behaved around the Majestic and Regal Anubis from then on. LOL

don't you just wanna smack Sheila Jackson Lee? I do
oooowweeeee, it's gonna be tough for the dems to rebutt this. They are going to look so petty.
It's ok. You're human. It's all good.
W just finished his speech, and the camera flashed to Laura, who looked like she hasn't stopped crying since the parents were honored.
Wow x a million. I'm just floored.
Let's rock and roll.
Or, if we're really lucky, Chapaquiddik, alone this time.
Someone beat Sheila Jackson-Lee with a camera....Please...
"First in War, First in Peace, First in the Hearts of his Countrymen."
so proud of President Bush !
I sure to love that man....
may God bless he and Laura to the fullest
If this doesn't show any doubters why the President's critics are so small and petty then nothing will. The Norwoods...just damn.
Brit Hume just mentioned it also. He sounds like he's slightly mushy.
It was a team effort.
America and Iraq has shed a lot of blood. The Iraqi's risked their lives to stand down the terrorists. They could have left our soldiers and our leadership hanging by not coming out to vote.
They did and are doing their part.
I wouldn't know, we proudly watch nothing but Fox News.
