Thank you Mr. President!

The State of the Union isnt over yet and my dad and I are watching it together. I'm honestly not just drinking the George Bush Kool-Aid here, but he is hitting every issue right on the nail. The best was on the NSA terrorist surveillance issue. I was also glad he brought up Iran and Hamas. It will be interesting to see how the polls numbers are after this on specific issues. His sharp stances on these hot button issues will no doubt incense the Dems and their liberal interest groups. However, the GOP members of Congress need to unite firmly behind the President and also work to reform inside the party itself. The most intriguing part of the speech was the President speaking on foreign oil, and also on his spending on research. The most touching moment was of course the salute to Sgt. Daniel Clay, a soldier killed last month.

TC: It was an excellent speech. I watched it with my Trotsky-ite daughter anbd even she had to acknowledge the strength of its substance and the unusually good delivery. I think she came ready to giggle at Bush's awkward speaking style. She was disappointed. If Bush can show some movement on even a few of the items he mentioned, I suspect that the 2006 Congressional elections will go far better for the GOP than many were predicting.

I also thought that Kaine looked awkward, uncomfortable with the content of the speech that had been forced upon him, and generally was several levels below Bush's game. Nice contrast. That might help the GOP in Virginia start a climb out of the wreckage.

You've had a busy day. No point burning yourself out before you even get to college. Get some rest.

Well, Bush can say he's going to do all these things, now I'd like to see him DO all those things. He hasn't done much of anything since being elected in 2000, despite making many promises similar to the ones made tonight.

The touching moment was carefully crafted.

It's too bad that Cindy Sheehan was arrested for wearing a t-shirt the president didn't like. That'd be a moment I would like to see.

willis, a man was arrested and removed from the capitol for wearing an anti-clinton shirt during the impeachment heatings.

Well, that's bad too. You shouldn't be arrested for wearing a t-shirt, under any circumstances.

vzoghI liked the canine veteran best of all. He sat through all the partisan BS with patience and good manners. A good dog indeed. Hillary should hire him as her manners coach.
