Jeff Dobbs

Attach Watch!

Cecil Turner

Yeah, well, I'm up to date. So I guess I just have to wait until 10pm for the new episode . . .

Dave (in MA)

The blonde in red needs to sue her hairdresser.

Beasts of England

Drink!

Marlene

hit,I think jimmyk is correct. Maine...cboldt hasn't commented recently.

rich@gmu

anyone living blogging?

Dave (in MA)

Vodkapundit's simultaneously live drunkblogging and live tweeting.

MarkO

I can't watch. Everything he says is always so vapid and slippery. He's just not that smart and he's a liar.

I'll check back tomorrow or sometime.

Dave (in MA)

Joe Wilson doesn't have to yell anything, he just needs to look smug.

Miss Marple

Dave, that is a terrible haircut, made wore because she thinks it looks swell.

rich@gmu

living blogging? that was a strange typo.

PD

I miss Pelosi standing behind the President in her Snuggie.

narciso

Walton Goggins, Boyd, is much more layered then in Leonard's accounts, he was just a Nazi thug, but
he's a little like Spacey's Mel Proffitt, from Wiseguy,

rich@gmu

MarkO-

"lies, more lies, and statistics."

offical transcript.

Dave (in MA)

It isn't a "he" until he gets to the manual laborers.

Miss Marple

Oh, he's opening with vignettes about teachers, auto-workers, entrpreneurs, military, etc.

Very gagworthy.

rich@gmu

official transcript. humm, coffee...

Dave (in MA)

Someone on Twitter pointed out that Pete Seeger took the easy way out of watching SOTU trainwreck.

Ann on iPad

Two nice words before we begin:

Nice tie

Michelle is sitting next to a soldier

All I got

Dave (in MA)

"I believe this can be a breakthrough year for America.” Yeah, in the midterms, you jackass.

PD

Congress produced a budget?

In what sense?

Miss Marple

His speaking is too cheery and he has been coached.

This is not his normal speaking style.

Fake.

J.R.

Longest "recovery" ever.

rich@gmu

>>>This is not his normal speaking style.<<<

medicated?

PD

"I intend to be a dictator."

Miss Marple

rich, medicated plus coaching.

Fake cheeriness, fake lowering of voice to a whisper for emphasis, etc. Overly dramatic and not natural at all.

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

Standing Ovation for John Boehner. I'm not paying attention so I don't know why.

Threadkiller

Ok, I'm watching...

"Accident of birth?"

J.R.

Tax loophole jibberish is used every SOTU.

narciso

Hey, PD how have you been,

PD

Mostly absent. :-)

Centralcal on iPad

Tried to listen, but he is too fake energized. Slinging the usual insults. Time to mute.

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

He doesn't even know what he is saying. It's absolutely amazing.

henry

With the sound off he looks like an Edsel salesman.

Soylent Red

Interesting show about Operation Azorias on the Military Channel.

Back when we fought commies instead of electing them.

narciso

'It's a gift' Jane,

Ann on iPad

Has he promised car washes and bake sales yet? They got a big applause when I was running for student council.

PD

"All of the above energy policy."

Coal?

When will we complete our next nuclear plant?

Why is he silent about natural gas?

Dave (in MA)

Miss Marple

Boehner is giving him a look of disdain.

Wouldn't blame the guy if he had 2 scotches before he went to sit down.

Thomas Collins

I would rather listen to Howard Dean or Bernie Sanders than 404. I'll read the reports on what talking points 404 is mouthing.

PD

"Let's stop subsidizing successful fossil fuel companies so we can send more money to future Solyndras."

PD

"Climate change is a FACT."

Because I say FACT in all caps!

Miss Marple

"Climate change is a FACT!"

Here's hoping the heat goes out in the White House tonight.

Dave (in MA)

Jackass takes credit for things that he fights to prevent.

Here it comes...

Dave (in MA)

Why were they showing a lizard nodding its head just then?

PD

A lizard with a tie, no less.

PD

"Unemployed worker"

Eh?

Ann on iPad

The only settled science is Obama SUCKS!

Miss Marple

Misty.

Play Misty for me.

rich@gmu

all of the above...Sarah Palin moonlighting as a speechwriter?

>>>Threadkiller-ha. too bad Stanley wanted to punish herself.

Beasts of England

Climate change is a fact, indeed. Changes all the time. Always has, always will. Sadly, that's probably not how he views it...

narciso

A prescient tale;

“One of the major difficulties Trillian experienced in her relationship with Zaphood was learning to distinguish between him pretending to be stupid just to get people off their guard, pretending to be stupid because he couldn't be bothered to think and wanted someone else to do it for him, pretending to be outrageously stupid to hide the fact that he actually didn’t understand what was going on, and really being genuinely stupid. He was renowned for being amazingly clever and quite clearly was so—but not all the time, which obviously worried him, hence, the act. He preferred people to be puzzled rather than contemptuous.”

Janet

Most of this gobbledygook is not government's business.
I can't stand to listen to all this 'stuff' government is gonna do. They all just need to go home.

Miss Marple

How much will this son of a factory worker have to borrow in order to go to college?

Oh, he's bragging about revamping student loans!

Are you listening, Millennials?

PD

Most of this gobbledygook is not government's business.

Bingo!

Dave (in MA)

Foxnews.com keeps dropping chunks of the broadcast like its a UHF channel showing a monster movie on a Saturday afternoon.

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

It is such small ball.

Janet

If the federal government is gonna do all this crap, then I want to quit paying state & local taxes for the same stuff.

Account Deleted

Janet,

You rarely get hear a President brag about a recovery and ask for an extension of long term unemployment benefits in the same speech.

It takes a very special type of man to do that. It even takes special and very short buses to haul that type of man around.

rich@gmu

>>>How much will this son of a factory worker have to borrow in order to go to college?<<<

the average for an undergraduate is about 27k (varies quite a bit by school and location).

Dave (in MA)

I just got a look at DeLauro. And I ate recently.

mad jack

My poor little puppy was neutered today and is now wearing the cone of shame but he is quite happy that I did not make him watch either Governor Devalue Patrick or the JEF speak tonight...because that would be cruel.

Soylent Red

Switched over to the Aspire Channel and reruns of the Flip Wilson Show are on.

Geraldine reminds me of Moochelle. Only Geraldine is more ladylike.

Dave (in MA)

Raise the minimum wage! And hire more people!

Axelrod already ran this shit at 8:00 in Boston with Mini Me.

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

Was Deval's speech tonite too? How dare he spend $9 million renovating his office in the last year of his term?

Dave (in MA)

Vodkapundit: " All Americans should earn above-average wages."

PD

Lowering our taxes would in effect be giving us a raise. How about it, Mr. President?

Beasts of England

The contradiction is lost on him, Rick. Plus, unemployment benefits create jobs! Remember?

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

Oh dear - now he wants MY RA - a funky IRA where he guarantees results.

Yeah right.

Ignatz

--I am resolutely aware that those back episodes of "Justified" won't watch themselves...--

Thanks for the reminder TM. Seven minutes to spare on a new one.

Miss Marple

Raise your hand if you will put any money into MY IRA bonds.

I thought so.

PD

Apparently only people with a 401(k) have any investments in the stock market.

And apparently only the wealthy have access to a tax break for investment accounts. So apparently it's not true that anyone who works can contribute to their own IRA.

narciso

There was a Charlie's Angel episode, with Robert Reed as the villain, on another channel,

Dave (in MA)

So SHE's the one who got through.

Janet

Lowering our taxes would in effect be giving us a raise. How about it, Mr. President?

Yeah, PD! Instead the POTUS is making it sound like the business owners are just being cheap with their workers.

'Come on, pay your workers more!'

bgates

This is not his normal speaking style.

Fake.

You mean, "This is not his normal speaking style, 'Fake'."

Cecil Turner

Reading thru the drunkblogging, I see I haven't missed much. On to Justified!

Janet

No instead we can be dropped because our plans aren't Obamacare compliant.

we can be charged more because Obamacare costs more.

PD

Obama lied, health care died.

henry

Repeal Obamacare & I could afford more people / higher pay.

Thomas Collins

Were there any details about the IRA? I'm wondering whether 404 is starting down the road to grabbing retirement accounts.

Eric in Boise

I can't watch, but is he offering that we can get MY IRA Bonds at a discount before they become mandatory in a year or two?

Dave (in MA)

David Burge ‏@iowahawkblog 4m
Look at this room of people you elected, America. LOOK AT IT

Barbara

"Oh dear - now he wants MY RA - a funky IRA where he guarantees results."

Oh $hit! I knew they'd get around to that.

Beasts of England

Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson is at the SOTU address. Wonder how his approval ratings compare to JEF's? Heh.

Miss Marple

Thomas Collins, I pretty much think there is nothing good for us in that idea about some sort of "guaranteed return" bond.

henry

We already have Soc Sec and it will be broke by the time I get my "savings".

rich@gmu

>>>It is such small ball.<<<

Clinton featured Americorp and school uniforms.

clarice

Rick, I'm posting your "special" comment on FB--It's share worthy. Then I'm going to bed..

Ignatz

Would could go wrong with a government guaranteed IRA?
Instead of My RA, how about Solynd RA?

PD

Few Americans give more to their country than our diplomats.

Like Chris Stevens, who I let die in Benghazi.

Dave (in MA)

-----
Stephen Green 7 MINUTES AGO
“Tomorrow I will direct the Treasury to… start ‘My IRA.’”

Oh, no… guaranteed retirement deposits.

We had a tech bubble, then a housing bubble, so I suppose we simply must have a retirement account bubble.

Baby, you ain’t seen broke yet.

narciso

the odd thing is one is supposed to act, as if any of this made any sense, which it barely does even from an Alinsky framework,

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

Now he is bragging that he lost 2 wars.

rich@gmu

and an question. has anyone here had a ruptured ear drum. my ear is bleeding but it isn't ringing and I can still hear out of it.

Thomas Collins

It's one thing some progs have been pushing for, Miss Marple. Federales gets use of private retirement accounts now for a promise of future government payments. We have to see whether this is 404's plan. It wouldn't surprise me, but I'm hoping I'm overreacting.

Rob Crawford
Raise your hand if you will put any money into MY IRA bonds.

Silly question. You won't have the choice!

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

Ruth Bader Ginsberg is asleep. She will be audited tomorrow.

Rob Crawford
Yeah, PD! Instead the POTUS is making it sound like the business owners are just being cheap with their workers.

Well, someone in the previous thread mentioned how he's already managed to eliminate any chance I have for a raise for the next two years.
