Good God, what a waste of electrons!

2 Atticus Thraxx January 28, 2014 at 8:51 PM

Jeez Mayor, did my damnedest to avoid the whole thing….

3 JLG January 28, 2014 at 9:04 PM

Good speech. Give peace a chance.

4 Always Right January 28, 2014 at 9:04 PM

More class warfare, more deficit spending, more inflation. Our grandchildren will have reason to rage at us for electing this socialist for two terms.

5 Rick January 28, 2014 at 9:31 PM

rebooblicans- “Nattering nabobs of negativity”.

I’m sure all you right-wing waste-of-brain matter bozos remember that one.

6 Suburban Dad January 28, 2014 at 9:40 PM

Haters gonna hate. I’m not an Obama fan boy but he isn’t half the dufus that GW Bush is. I used to cringe at all of the miss pronounces words during his speeches.

7 POS January 28, 2014 at 9:43 PM

Obama is a lying sack of sh*t.

@4. He is a Marxist. They start with socialism because it’s an easier sell, then they pray for a crisis. In his case, everything he does (except golf) is the means to the end he wants.

8 mutts January 28, 2014 at 10:09 PM

Bush mispronounced words occasionally, but still didn’t need a teleprompter. Obama is a socialist and that doesn’t work, never has. And we don’t need no stinking immigration reform. Our forefathers made the rules years ago. All the crime by illegals should be rewarded with reform? No.

9 Anon January 28, 2014 at 10:23 PM

When Bush would come on, I’d watch for a couple of minutes, but when Obama comes on, I’d switch the channel. I cannot watch him for a sec.

I want to see College transcripts and a birth Certificate! The guy that broke the ACORN story and said he had College movies, found himself dead at 42, just before releasing the tapes!

11 VikingPrincess January 28, 2014 at 10:56 PM

Thank you mayor for posting the pep talk clip. Resolution not too bad. Kind of nice to have some talking heads in office that are easy on the eyes. Mrs O must be the most lovely first lady since the previous Mrs O. Although I get the feeling she’s treated better by Mr O ;)

Well, he touched on all relevant issues. All this year, eh? Yep we need more jobs and solar. We need to buy and be proud of American workmanship.

Been trying my best to do myself. Even if it is a little more, the quality is worth it and lasts longer.

OK Mr O, let’s see what we can do.

PS I bet the boy up front got the back of his head popped after the pep talk for yawning at Mr O’s comments about education.

12 Dr. Jellyfinger January 28, 2014 at 11:10 PM

nuke-Q-Ler! I loved that routine.

Remember “When I was young & foolish, I was young & foolish” Man…… that said it all for me. It has been my standard excuse line for every stupid thing I ever did from childhood right up until….geez I never really thought about it before. I mean I say that line for things I spooged up yesterday even. Thanks George! That one’s a keeper.

13 Joe Biden January 28, 2014 at 11:13 PM

I was on TV!!!!

14 Laura Zah January 28, 2014 at 11:17 PM

RE: the headline, “Fool” is spelled incorrectly.

15 Mr. Moses January 28, 2014 at 11:33 PM

I don’t want to jump into the divisive politics here, but I did want to mention something that really did want to make me throw up. I was watching it live on Youtube and they provided footage a bit before the “official” broadcast. I was disgusted by looking at all the sycophants and phonies in the audience. You can tell by many of their actions, facial expressions, etc. that being at this event was only to boost their overstretched egos. Looked like a bunch of blood sucking vampires to me congratulating each other for stealing positions of power. During the presidents speech everything is civil with all these same individuals putting on their phoniest smiles, trying to look respectable. But, you saw a little big of their real personality beforehand. Barf.

16 MDUSD Grad January 28, 2014 at 11:38 PM

All just fluff and feel-goodery. Promise this and that and say that it’ll solve all our problems. Clap for 15 seconds after every sentence.

What a waste of time, money, and effort. Who cares to watch the insulated DC crowd ooh and ahh over themselves for being so out of touch?

17 Antler January 29, 2014 at 3:13 AM

President Obama
The right man
For the right job
At the right time.

Thank you, sir. And I am glad you plan to use the full legal power of the Executive Branch if certain factions in the Congress continue to indulge in obstructionism against the business of the Nation.

18 lg January 29, 2014 at 6:17 AM

@MR. MOSES, You got that right! Some of them show up early in the morning to “SAVE” their seat so they can be front and center. Also giving a good speech means nothing when what he`s actually doing to this country is destroying it. Talking good does`nt get the job done. Nothing new in what he said!!!!

19 @16 January 29, 2014 at 6:29 AM

Kinda like watching the Hollywood crowd award themselves for doing their job.

20 Anonymous January 29, 2014 at 7:09 AM

Same old same old. I can’t figure out why I keep watching this speech. They are all a complete waste of time.

It looks to me like the President has run out of steam and ideas.

21 james January 29, 2014 at 7:13 AM

I love how unemployment is he lowest in five years?
Really?
Come on we are not that stupid.
It is low this year because people either lost their UI benefits or they bit the bullet and took a (or two) low paying job(s) to try to make ends meet.
All these magic jobs Obama created , where???
I’m sorry entry level and low paying service jobs(fast food,retail,etc..) do not cut it.

22 . January 29, 2014 at 7:22 AM

During his State of the Union, Obama remarked, “Today, Women make up about half our workforce. But they still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. That is wrong, and in 2014, it’s an embarrassment. A woman deserves equal pay for equal work.”

However, women who work at the White House continue to make less money than their male counterparts. According to the D.C. based American Enterprise Institute, female White House staffers are paid less than 87 cents for every dollar paid to men who work at the White House. This is a significant gender wage gap of more than 13 percent and has been going on since at least 2012.

More double-speak from your liar-in-chief.

23 funny January 29, 2014 at 7:29 AM

“Because Filipino carnival workers are the backbone of this nation’s ecenomy!!!”

If you’ve seen The Campaign with Will Ferrell then you got that :):)

24 KJ January 29, 2014 at 7:45 AM

Mutts @8 — “Bush mispronounced words occasionally, but still didn’t need a teleprompter.”

Oh, please! Of course Bush used a teleprompter! They ALL use teleprompters. Even the “great and glorious Saint” Ronnie used teleprompters.

What a bizarre thing to get upset about.

25 Anonymous January 29, 2014 at 7:45 AM

@Viking Princess “He touched on all the relevant issues” Are you serious?He almost ignored Obama care , which is a mess. Did he explain “If you like your healthcare plan you can keep your healthcare plan”

Did I miss his explanation for lying?

But that’s OK he talked about…. Solar.

Oh yes ,he told employers to give workers pay raises.That should fix the economy.

But Michelle was beautiful and that’s what counts.

26 Anon January 29, 2014 at 8:24 AM

It is beyond me how anyone could trust Obama .

27 teri January 29, 2014 at 8:40 AM

There is no gender pay gap. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505125_162-28246928/the-gender-pay-gap-is-a-complete-myth/

It saddens me that we have a president who promised evidence-based solutions yet he aligns with gender feminists instead.

28 Anon Redux January 29, 2014 at 8:44 AM

I believe Rush Limbaugh will today provide an eye-opening review of the speech. He will skewer all the players — the President, the Democrats, and the Republicans.

Mon-Fri 9am-12pm. KNEW 960am
http://www.thepatriot960.com/cc-common/rushlimbaugh/

On that note, I have a question. Is President Obama violating the right of citizens to free speech by personally attacking both Rush Limbaugh and Fox News? (He didn’t attack them in this speech, but in other recent speeches).

29 Treason! January 29, 2014 at 8:54 AM

Obama should be tried for treason.

30 @anon redux January 29, 2014 at 8:56 AM

You have met your quota of paragraphs for the month. Please do not post any more right weiner comments until Feb.

31 Anon January 29, 2014 at 9:21 AM

#4 Always Right is ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! Unfortunately for all of us and next generation(s).

32 Mr. Pink January 29, 2014 at 9:22 AM

The SotU address is the same old bs every time, regardless of who’s president or which party. They haul out the American Single Mom, the American Uninsured, the American solider. I’d love to see a president get up there and say something other than sound bites and rhetoric, but it will never happen.

33 The Mamba January 29, 2014 at 9:25 AM

More empty promises from another empty suit, so sick of these things.

34 Anonymous January 29, 2014 at 9:33 AM

His pants were on fire.

35 VikingPrincess January 29, 2014 at 9:51 AM

@Anyonmous

Well..he made it clear he knew it was a topic that would start a Mob lynching – the air was so thick when he said it – it was obvious.

Come on….he controlled the floor and his writer did a good job covering all the issues. Much was sad, I must say….his conviction made one forget he was talking about us. You think his speech left out California? Hmmm

36 Anonymous January 29, 2014 at 10:10 AM

It sounded like an election speech to me. Lots of promises of things to come but no specifics on how to accomplish it. Not sure what world Obama lives in but it’s certainly not this one. He made it sound like everything is peachy keen and all is right with the world. Worst president EVER! Dont like Michelle either and I think Biden needs to stop grining like an idiot. They are an embarassment to America!

37 Common Sense January 29, 2014 at 10:23 AM

@Antler….Apparently you’ve either never read the Constitution, or you don’t understand it, or both.

38 Not a Barry Fan January 29, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Isn’t Barry doing a bang up job on the economy?

Did you see his Bro over here?

Don’t suppose we’re seeing the Manchur….er, Nairobi Candidate in action these last 5 years do ya??

39 . January 29, 2014 at 11:51 AM

Business as usual – politicians are talking and nothing of substance will happen.

Move along, nothing to see/hear.

40 The Mamba January 29, 2014 at 1:12 PM

@ Teri, I caught that as well, as soon as he said it, I thought, “I can’t believe he just repeated that lie which has been proven wrong over and over and over again.”

41 M.O.A January 29, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Lying liar in Chief. As for the liars spouse, exterior ugly can be covered up during a two and half hour make-over by her Hollywood hand maidens.

42 Pucky January 29, 2014 at 2:56 PM

I watched it with one eye closed, and a beer in one hand. I could actually feel myself getting sick, then sicker…As a Nation, we are in a peck of trouble. We are going down hill very fast, with little chance of recovery. So sad to see this in my lifetime. I am 62, Proud to be an American, for now anyways. Pray for Divine assistance from above. We need it….♥

43 Elwood January 29, 2014 at 3:13 PM

His lips really moved a lot!

44 hahayourefunny January 29, 2014 at 4:06 PM

while everyone bickers about socialism and party politics, the NSA is spying on us, journalists are being charged with treason for speaking the truth to the people, our brothers and sisters are STILL being sent overseas to fight in an endless war (and upon their return are not receiving the care they were promised), CEO profits are skyrocketing while the rest of us barely get by, in this land of the free we have the highest incarceration rate (which will only increase so long as running a prison is another means to make a profit), and we have a government which gives in to the whims of corporations even when their interests are clearly aligned with their own profits and not the wellbeing of The People….. its easy to say “this party or that party is the problem” but you know what folks… WE are the problem. We have been going with this flow for far too long. We do not think critically about the world we live in, we align with party politics and spout one liners instead of communicating with one another and coming up with solutions. Top-down solutions are not happening, politicking is a business. We are the ones who need to get it together.

45 mr rogers January 29, 2014 at 4:24 PM

This nation needs a leader….instead we have a King.

46 I turned it off when the Lying POS said thaty 8 million jobs were created. January 29, 2014 at 4:41 PM

We all know that he was just counting temp jobs for the holidays.

I can’t stand that lying SOB.

Everything that comes out of his mouth is a Lie!

47 The dude January 29, 2014 at 4:49 PM

We need to start with the welfare system. No soda no booze, heck why not implement government ran stores and housing for welfare . Those who don’t want to work should get the bottom of the barrell food and water only.

Welfare should only provide necessities and booze soda, these things are wants not needs.

As far as the deduction for marriage …..it needs to go. It was to boost the population.

People don’t need money to survive they need food shelter and water.

Or implement a work program. Simce they would get housing and food and water for free, they can work in the daycare, kitchen grounds, janitorial…

This whole idea of John Doe, living in a suburban home , with a brand new BMW in the driveway all while waking up at 12pm to go use the EBT card to buy steaks and such really grinds my gears…..

48 CVHS89 January 29, 2014 at 4:52 PM

The President did a wonderful job with the state of the union….Very proud of him and all the work he has done!!!

49 Atticus Thraxx January 29, 2014 at 5:41 PM

I didn’t watch,but let me guess…if you already hated him you found plenty to hate him more about. If you like him, his message resonated.
How’d I do?

@ CVHS89 #50

God help you!

I bet you have a lot of fun frolicking with the unicorns and fairies.

51 Libertarian January 29, 2014 at 5:54 PM

If you liked his SOTU speech you can hear the same SOTU speech each year.

52 Same Old B.S. January 29, 2014 at 6:11 PM

Blah Blah Blah.Clap.Blah Blah blah blah blah.Clap.Thank God he cannot be re-elected.

53 @Antler January 29, 2014 at 9:14 PM

Youre a fool and deserve what you get when he becomes your DICTATOR. Pick up a copy of the Constiturion and a history book and educate yourself you moron.

54 Dr. Jellyfinger January 29, 2014 at 10:12 PM

I enjoyed The State of Denial Speech. I was under the impression that there were still like 9 million less jobs today than there were in 2009 but Obama says it’s the other way around. Hardly anyone is unemployed, the economy has swung upwards & is going gangbusters! Obamacare is fixed & millions are saving mega bucks because of it! Iran has abandoned their nuclear bomb project and all the scandals are apparently forgotten (at least by Obama). So all is well! Happy days are here again! I think I’ll head on down to the unemployment office tomorrow and break the news to a couple of hundred people. Time to share the joy!

55 Hillary January 29, 2014 at 10:59 PM

What difference does it make?

56 VikingPrincess January 29, 2014 at 11:39 PM

@Dr Jellyfinger

Heck, he even had his own pizza guy there. Just got his $10 raise. In California and other states where the cost of living is another story…it felt sad.

So the job situation is scary. Let’s create a diversion and bring on a guy happy to get a hotdog, soda and $80 at the end of the day. Confuse the c%*p out of everyone. Kind of sad.
