SOTU 2008

Democrats not impressed so far.

Fascists for tax relief! Wahhooo!

Earmarks...I believe they started in Congress around the time of the Contract with America?

I LOVE to see Claire McCaskill (D-MO), even though I've never been to Missouri...I think you know why.

Aannnd there's my gal, Hill'...criticize me if you want to.

Bush attacking what Congressman Blackburn (my "R-TN") calls "socialism"...Dems not impressed (neither am I).

The No Child Left Behind Act is apparently working...who knew?

Speaker Pelosi looks disappointed only a few minutes in...I'll second that.

Dubya supporting free trade yet "Made in America" at the same time. Umm...

Clean energy = + from the G-Funk...then come in coal and nuclear power...if-y.

Stopping greenhouse gases...another +. Except we have to penalize developing countries.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) shown....another crush.

Justice Ginsburg closes her eyes when Dubya starts talking about stem-cell research.

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) remains seated when Dubya mentions New Orleans, as she should.

Dubya and Congress supporting the one can deny, now and forever = +!

Support our troops until the end...again, another +, although they NEED TO START COMING HOME!!!

Timeline denied...another big surprise.

Support for a democratic Israel and Palestine = +.

Polarizing again...increase surveillance on Americans.

Help stop the genocide in Darfur = +.

Increased funding for AIDS relief = +.

THE END (not as bad as I thought it would be...low expectations?).

PS....Why didn't he mention the honorary guests?
