  • 2014 State of the Union Message

    Are you going to watch?

    I will purposely avoid it. There is NOTHING Obama can say that I would be interested in hearing, with the notable exception of "I hereby resign...."

    As far as I am concerned, he is the political equivalent of Joseph Smith -- he has suckered hundreds of thousands of people into following him by "saying words" which contradict his actions.

    I have never before in my life felt contempt and disgust for one of our Presidents like I do for this one. And, yeah, I need to pray about this.

    PERIOD!

    I quit watching State of the Union messages when I first realized that they had little if anything to do with the state of the union.

    I'm always still in trouble again

      Well, yeah, there's that, too. All they are is "I am so brilliant... I accomplished...." accompanied with a "and I'm going to spend ungodly amounts of money to try to keep you voting for my kind...."

        I'm not going to watch it. I pretty much know what he's going to say anyway (does he ever say anything different?). I confess to having much the same opinion of him as you, CP.

          I thought you'd enjoy watching him sweat and flail wildly considering he's a lame duck and colossal, miserable failure.

            Well, there's that. Somehow the vindication just doesn't seem reward enough, though.

              Thank God for term limits. The American public can't be trusted to make good decisions.

                  But he "has a pen and a phone", and intends to do a bunch more damage by executive order. PLUS his flunkies in cabinet positions who MAKE LAW by decree, totally apart from Congress.

                  I like what Krauthammer said.... "he, indeed, has a pen and a phone -- what he does NOT have is a copy of the Constitution".

                    No I won't watch it. I don't have anything to do with Obama.

                      A lot of racists in this thread.

                            Nope. Haven't felt a need to watch any of the prior ones, not going to start now. They always summarize it the following day. And no one will care that following day, just like they didn't the day before.

                              It is a real blessing (seriously) not to watch any TV. It is not a decision I need to make - though I never had a problem skipping them in the long ago past.
