The State of the Union Address has ended and let’s just hope that all the promises that Obama is promising us today will actually come true by the end of the how he has promised. At this point my worries are Syria and how Obama wants to get the nose into their business and Guantanamo bay prison finally closing. For the text of the speech go here and for the video here.
10.25- Obama walking around giving autographs like a big star of the show.
10.20- The speech is over, but I did not hear Obama mentioning about the spying, the shutdown, or gun control. He talked about the shootings that occurred recently, but did not expand on the issue.
10.16–Cory Remsburg. So Obama wants us to go to Syria so we can have more people like Cory come out, that are not only physically unstable, but also mentally ? Be strong Cory!
10.07- Wow creating a separate state of Palestine. I do hope it will cease fire between Palestine and Israel.
10.05- The Guantanamo Bay prison is going to close ! Oh boy, that sure is taking him long to close down. Once again this was a promise from his first term. I will say one more time, how was Obama expecting to keep his promises from the first term, without yet knowing that he would be re-elected once more. Or did he already know???
10.03- Support Syria? how does he know which side he needs to support. Syria needs to find its own answer, without the US getting its nose into it. Was Iraq and Afghanistan not enough?
10.02- The war with Iraq and Afghanistan will finally be over by the end of this year…. Obama promised this in his very first term and he did it just now. What if he was not going to be reelected again. The troops better be out of the war by the end of the year. Otherwise I will be in even bigger disappointment.
9.59- I think I hear gun control coming up. Or is just me.
9.58- “It’s the spirit of citizenship, the recognition that through hard work and responsibility, we can pursue our individual dreams, but still come together as one American family to make sure the next generation can pursue its dreams as well.”
9. 56- The speaker of the house, John Boehner, has finally let a smile go across his lips. The Affordable Care Act most definitely makes this man happy.
9.48-Obama wants to raise the minimum wage. Can’t wait for that! I need that extra dollar or two raise in my minimum wage!
9.46- Woman deserve equal pay for equal work. This country should have quite talking about this as a problem years ago. Hard to believe it is still such a big issue in 2014. How Obama said, it truly is an embarrassment.
9.45- Let us reach out to students with education debt and how we can fix and change it. As Obama said, “I want to work with Congress to see how we can help even more Americans who feel trapped by student loan debt.”
9.42.- Research shows that high quality early education is key to allowing our kids to grow faster in learning and being ready for the future higher education.
9.40- We have to prepare not the current workforce, but also the future workforce as well
9.38- The congress needs to return the unemployment insurance that just expired. 1.6 million people had their unemployment taken away. Let’s just be sure that all of these 1.6 million need the unemployment. There are those who truly need it, and then the ones who just lazy to get out and work.
9.35- Immigration reform all over again. Now we’re going to be doing it this year. Obama is asking for quite a bit of reform for this year. Will the President be ready to make his “dreams” come true this year?? Personally I am tired of hearing about immigration reform. I thought problem was solved with Mark Rubio.
9.34- We need a shift to cleaner more sufficient energy use and production. I sure do agree!
9.30- I don’t know if Joe Biden is paying attention, or flirting with the crowd. That big ol’ smile!
9.29 – New goods with “stamped made in the USA” I do agree, because some of the clothes you get that are made in US are so much better quality!!
9.27–loop holes in the tax system are a big problem that needs to change. Obama wants to start a tax reform. Oh please do. Maybe Occupy Wall Street did make some people listen! Hmm.
9.25– The crowd is going wild. They sure get happy easily.
9.23- Speaks about the First Lady, Michelle. Obama is using her as great example of moving forward and helping the people. Talks about her program for kids with obesity.
9.19– Building the trust with the people. Right, so much trust. Shutdown government, made and even higher budget, spied on his own people that he wants to trust him.
9.17- The deficit has been caught by half. Also, the US is the number one country to invest, not China. Phew. Here we go, patriotism. Applaud, applaud, applaud.
9.14– Wow. Did not expect such a loud and happy crowd.
9.12- Obama looks tense. Not a lot of smiling from him, like his usual from ear to ear smile. Looks like he knows he will have a lot to talk about.
9.10- The president has entered the room. The room is filled with applause from around the room.
9.08- Mark Rubio is surrounded by democrats. The only isolated Republican sitting next to the democrats. How must he feel, right.
9.05 – Only five supreme justices came into the room. Everybody looks quite happy at the meeting. A very relaxed feeling. Everyone is so calm, hard to think this is going to be as serious.
9.02 – The anchorman has called Obama’s last year as the worst presidency. Ouch. Good luck Obama, we will see how this one goes for you.
