Don't you mean three?

SOTU
Republican response
Teabagger response

and 1/2, maybe:

Ted Nugent's wingnut twittering
 
2013-02-12 11:40:16 AM
I fully expect that both are going to be preempted by that farking idiot Nugent trying something stupid and getting arrested on live TV.
 
2013-02-12 11:46:40 AM
President: Ok folks, here's what we need to do. It's not going to be easy, but I believe we can do it.
GOP: IM AGG'IN IT.
TeaParty: *wet snorting*

There. I just saved you all an evening.
 
2013-02-12 11:46:41 AM
And since most Republicans totter off to bed early, Faux News will play the GOP response first.

Rather, at this point, delivering the State of the Union is really satisfying the second part of the Constitutional mandate - that the president "recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient." The State of the Union has indeed become the one omnibus policy statement to the nation.

Then the president can do it from the Oval Office, and spare us the kidney punch to the separation of powers, the haranguing of Congress and non-partisan officials (Supreme Court Justices, the Joint Chiefs), the stupid Lenny Skutniks, and the whole rest of the imperial president pageant bullshiat.

I haven't watched a SOTU or a Dem/Rep response in 10 years, and I see no reason to ever again.
 
2013-02-12 12:01:13 PM
I usually read it the day after...

Got to put together a lecture on lighting tonight, anyway.

Though, the potential for Ted Nugent to do something obnoxious, loud and stupid might force me to keep the TV on in the background... Unless there's a hockey game on. Hockey is way more interesting than politics.

They cancelled Mardi Gras so sober people could stand around on Bourbon St to watch, listen, and parse every word of both speeches?

After the not so subtle threats Ted has made, I am shocked the secret service allows him to be that close to the President.
 
2013-02-12 12:08:56 PM
Who gives a shiat? Anything said tonight won't matter because these bastards don't give a damn about you at all.
There is nothing you can do to change the mindset of the people in power, they are going to do what they want whether you like it or not.
We are just sheeple, deal with it.
 
2013-02-12 12:10:42 PM
The response doesn't matter, and never mattered.

The SOTU stopped mattering when communication technology progressed to the point that all members of Congress were able to receive important information about our nation in a timely matter.

It's all just political cheerleading now that the general public has been invited to observe.

2013-02-12 12:14:26 PM
Meh. I think 'Red' is on HBO. I'd rather watch Helen Mirren with a machine gun and John Malkovich goign bug-nuts insane than a SOTU/response. I'm sure it'll be all over the headlines and this very tab in the morning.

Obama should just take the dais, fart into the mic and then throw it at the nearest teabagger and walk away.

Well, if he does wear his usual wardrobe, it will be easier to spot him being an idiot.  Go be "patriotic" somewhere else, Ted.

It is political theater.

The one thing that this will accomplish is allow the Loyal Opposition the rope to hang themselves. Which on fairness, I think will be the tone for this Administration.

In the sky overhead, the talons of the image of an eagle reached down toward Washington, DC. The similar pointed projection of the beginning of a weather elephant in the Atlantic stretched across Florida. An eagle symbolizes a Throne Angel, which brings national judgment, and an elephant symbolizes Baal.
Inauguration Chart
Inauguration Chart, 1-20-13At the time of the inauguration, which began at 11:55 AM EST and ended within a minute, the Chart contained a Skull, a Plow, and a Yod. A Skull is a morbid sign of death at the hands of Satan, who has the power of death. A Plow is a sign of intensive suffering, like being plowed under. The Plow pointed to the Red Planet in Capricornus, for suffering from sin or evil. A Yod symbolizes critical timing and the ability to seize the moment and strike at precisely the right time. The Yod pointed to the Almighty God Planet in Taurus, for a world ruler. Satan is currently the ruler of the world. The Yod corresponded to the necessity of having the inauguration on Sunday before the public ceremony tomorrow.

The Sun was near Midheaven in Capricornus, for the glory of the world. And the Sun was in conjunction with the Savior Planet, for a rescuer. The Red Planet was also in Capricornus. The three planets in Capricornus meant strong influence from that sign in the Chart. Capricornus corresponds to Texas.

The Moon was nearing the Ascendant in Aries, for Jezebel, the Prostitute of Babylon who usurps authority. And the God of the Covenants Planet was setting near the Descendant in Libra, for the law, which required the inauguration today. The God of the Covenants in Libra also symbolizes business and the economy, which is failing.

Two planets paired together were in Sagittarius. The Morning Star in Sagittarius symbolized the Commander-in-Chief, corresponding to the President. And the Last Adam in Sagittarius symbolized an enemy or Satanic attack.
Conclusion
The signs accompanying the inauguration of the President did not bode well. The weather angels pointed the talons of an eagle at Washington, DC. The eagle symbolizes a Throne Angel sent to discipline the Client Nation, and the pointed talons were the sign of an attack. The same pointed symbol was over Florida from a weather elephant, the symbol of Baal. Florida should have been a symbol of good news, but instead this symbolized an attack on good news.

The sign of the Skull was a morbid symbol of death at the hands of Satan. Satan was probably on hand for the inauguration, since he rules the world. The Skull was pierced by a Plow. Although the Plow was barely within tolerance, it symbolized intensive suffering, like being plowed under. It pointed to the Red Planet in Capricornus, which was a sign of more suffering from sin or evil.

President Obama is the 44th President of the US, where 44 is for suffering. The nation has suffered badly, especially from the economy, during the last four years, but the signs overhead today were morbid signs of suffering from Satan.
