State of the Union -- Live Thread

There are at least five different entities that deal with housing policy. Then there’s my favorite example: the Interior Department is in charge of salmon while they’re in fresh water, but the Commerce Department handles them in when they’re in saltwater. And I hear it gets even more complicated once they’re smoked.

 

Got applause.

He's talking about all the unnecessary agencies, and HE is the one who added all the czars, right?

Boehner has the greatest expression thru out this... sort of slight smirk like you total idiot, but not over the top.

I'm bailing on the listening, just reading the snark now.

 

Wonder what the trigger word will be to attack...

I'm having a hard time coming up with snark at this point.

 

I keep looking at Boehner and thinking he has shot glasses lined up. What is that silver tray thingy?

It looks like glasses of water. Wonder if he'll excuse himself for a potty break.

I see the water glass but it is on the other side of the tequila shot glasses. :D

Okay, the fish joke wasn't bad.

 

Wants to reorganize government. Says people will be able to get information about government spending online, says he'll veto earmarks.

Holy s^#@. Batman!!

 

He's going to reform and rebuild the government. And he's going to rebuild our faith in the government.

 

These people have no idea what the Constitution is and they're going to reformulate our government!

 

Pray for Boehner's continued health and well being!

I know I am being redundant-but these people have NO expressions on their faces. Even when they get up to clap, it's like they are robots!!

And we have sent a message from the Afghan border to the Arabian Peninsula to all parts of the globe: we will not relent, we will not waver, and we will defeat you.

 

 

 

We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail.

Dig Boehner's expressions!

I have to give him credit. No way I could sit behind this man and listen to these words that are not in his heart and not make stinky eye at him.

You know, I think he basically missed his true calling. He is a preacher.
