The President did a good job in his address. He made some good points and challenged The Congress on things. He put forward a vision for the last two years of his term and down the road. He didn’t get a lot of applause from the Republicans as expected. We shall see what happens next.
Imagine if we did something different…
I couldn’t live on $15,000 a year, I don’t think anyone could. Why should workers have to? In some places it might be the only choice they have. Wages are important.
Every American needs to play on a level playing field so they can dream bigger, do more and live better.
The applause given the President is an interesting part of this thing. Who claps, who doesn’t and what for. It’s the definition of playing a room.
We have settled in to watch the State of the Union speech that President Obama is about to deliver. For the first time we are tuning into PBS to watch it. Hey if they can give us Sesame Street and Downton Abbey then why not? It will be interesting to hear what he has to say.
OK. I guess my State of the Union pictures got someones attention at the Washington Post. This should be interesting, I don’t even do many political posts, maybe I should…maybe.
This evening President Obama will deliver his yearly State of the Union address. There are big topics on the agenda, including ISIS, the economy, and his relationship to an opposition congress. How will the president try to tie these issues into a compelling agenda? Here are five things to pay attention to as you watch his speech tonight.
The State of the Union will be on broadcast and news channels tonight at 9:00 PM so adjust your programming preferences accordingly.
The State of the Union is the address presented by the President of the United States to a joint session of the United States Congress, typically delivered annually.
President Obama will deliver his 6th SOTU tonight at 9:00 PM Eastern Time from Washington DC. It is always interesting to see what goes on and how people react to what the president has to say. I am a supporter of President Obama and there have been things I have agreed with and other things I have had questions about. He deserves respect in this task that he must perform. He will have a much tougher room this year. We shall see what happens.

Great themes, you mentioned important things and you were respectful to the opposition. Way to go!
