I was going to skip it and read a transcript, but I decided to listen anyway. Ugh...<br><br>So we heard about a savings account to solve high insurance premiums. Thank you Mr. President, but I already have a savings account with nothing in it. We heard about how we have cut non-security-related discretionary spending over the last four years. What that means, I don't know because spending has gone way up every year with huge handouts to Pharma and the energy corporations, who are now having record windfall profits. We heard about Iraq and how we need to cooperate in a bi-partisan debate to solve the problem, just so long as we don't at all talk about what kind of position our military takes. Perhaps we can debate the color of the uniforms? Is that even allowed? We heard about education while the Republican majorities in Congress cut millions from important college loan and grant programs.<br><br>I think people will see through all this. If they don't, God please help them.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey
I honestly can't watch or listen to Bush without developing hives. So I did not watch. Instead, I spent a happpy hour talking to my son. Time much better spent.<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

DAMN! Here I sat through the whole thing...<br><br>...TWICE... <br><br>...Thinking there'd be a POP QUIZ when I got back here. <br><br>Actually, I had to watch it twice<br>since the person watching in the room next door<br>was alternately laughing and screaming so loudly<br>I could hardly hear what the dictator was saying.<br><br>He'd gotten a suit transplant!<br>The lump barely showed this time. <br>...but as soon as I saw it (the moment he walked to the rostrum <br>and turned around ((and pronounced "rostrum" correctly)) ) I <br>knew we were going to be in for one hellova rousing speech.<br><br>From the beginning, the Orwellian Double-Speak started oozing out<br>and over the crowd like the Green 'Angel of Death' in the Charlton<br>Heston version of "The Ten Commandments" ...but I managed to<br>sit through it to the end. ((Mostly to see what the guy next door <br>was screaming and laughing at---which turned out(you guessed it) <br>to indeed be the Double-Speak.<br><br>This man has single-handedly done more to shake what little faith <br>I had in the existence of a God than anyone else I've ever had the<br>distinct displeasure of hearing or reading throughout my lifetime.<br><br>If there were such a higher power, there's just no way that that<br>smirking a$$h@le could ever tell so many lies and not have the<br>earth beneath his feet crack open and swallow him and "the Rostrum" both. <br><br><br><br><br><br>

It was pretty obvious that this self-proclaimed "War President" was there to rattle his rubber sabre as much as possible, and just gloss over any issues that have any real meaning to the rest of us. And to waste our time with yet another rationalization of the domestic spying issue was shameful. This was no State of the Union address. It was a campaign speech. <br><br>
"...Thinking there'd be a POP QUIZ when I got back here. "<br><br>Actually there is !!<br><br>1. How many times did GW turn around to get the thumbs up sign from Dickhead?<br><br>2. How many times did Hassert fall asleep? you did count the nods didnt ya?<br><br>3. What was the maximum time between GW spouting the words "terrism" and "democrazy"?<br><br>4, How many times did he use each of those words?<br><br>5. How many of his promises will he actually keep ?<br>(I had to throw in one eazy one !)<br><br>he, he, he thought you wre gonna get off eazy didn't ya gal !<br><br>David (OFI)<br>
