"Here's to You, Mr. President!"
Last night was President Obama's 7th State of the Union address. He listed all of the things that have been accomplished in the last 7 years in spite of obstructionist republicans who have said from Day 1 that there number one goal was to make him fail. Instead, we've got the best economy in ten years - in spite of the bank disaster, Wall St is booming, business is up, stocks are thru the roof, gas is dirt cheap, unemployment is way down - lowest since the '90s, people have health insurance and it hasn't made the world bankrupt. All in all, he's done everything and it's turned out the opposite of what they said would happen. He's the world's WORST socialist.
It was a great speech with great ideas and several flip-offs to the republicans. His best one showed how he can handle their shit with aplomb. Here is from an article in 'Business Insider'
"I have no more campaigns to run," Obama said, attempting to proceed to the next sentence.
However, Republicans saw a chance to snark on the president, and they seemed to deliver a relatively thunderous round of applause for the comment. Obama fired back with an impromptu line that got even more positive howls of support from Democratic lawmakers present.
"I know because I won both of them," he quipped.
After pausing for several seconds to embrace the support, Obama then returned to his prepared remarks.
i love this man. The next two years are going to be exciting indeed. But let's face it. If it doesn't happen this year, it ain't happening. Nothing is happening next year but the elections. THAT is another story.
