US First Lady Michelle Obama speaks in the East Room at the White House on January 24, during an event unveiling efforts to better coordinate and strengthen the Federal government's support for military families. The First Lady will welcome the parents of the nine-year-old girl killed in the Arizona shooting, and an aide who helped save congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, to her box in the House.

I’ll check back in when it starts.

Since I don’t watch TV (don’t even have one), this will be a excellent substitute.

All of this BS about civility from the dems and seating Republicans next to Democrats. I would have insisted on being seated next to Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen and then I'd show up wearing a Hitler mustache.

Hoping FR doesn't go snoozing like it did at the Tucson pep rally memorial service.

Who in their right mind wants to sit next to someone they cannot trust?

I just Hope that we can keep this thread as civil as the president’s speech. I suggest that the uses of euphemism be encouraged.

I can not think of any off the the top of my head that will fully convey my thoughts but I will work on it at dinner.

Ouch.

Why the Middle East Won’t Feature in Obama’s Speech
http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,2044237,00.html?xid=rss-nation-yahoo

It’s a safe bet that the Middle East will get short shrift in President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday. That’s because the speech typically focuses on an Administration’s achievements and on its plans to meet challenges going forward, and the reality is that there’s little in the way of achievements or plans to speak of in relation to the troubled region. In fact, Washington’s position is steadily declining in a number of Middle East flash points, and there’s little the Administration appears able to do about it.
