So... what did everyone think of the State of the Union address?

It was cool and all, but can they please limit the amount of standing ovations. It was reported that there was 70 standing ovations last night..70!! thats just about more then 1 a minute. You could tell that even Bush was getting annoyed by this.
But anyway his speech was awesome..he's a good person and I'm glad he's in office.

This was probably the most predictable State of the Union ever, so, I did not watch it. I'm about to read the transcript in the paper. I just hope he promised to win the war on terrorism.

I don't know if it was predictable. Just about most other addresses are, but this one _was_ during a war, you know, and he did seriously warn that terrorists could strike America at any time, not something he necessairly had to say. And from what I hear he also sent a pretty strong message to North Korea and Iraq, almost sounding like they were next. That takes some balls in my opinion.

It was good to see that Hillary kept her eye-rolling to a minimum this time around........and did Mike Spann's wife look less than happy about sitting next to Karzai ?

Yeah I think they could have done a better job with the seating arrangement. If my husband was just bitten and beaten to death by a bunch of Afghans, I'm not sure I would be too in the mood to get into the new government movement back at home. I guess its a nice show of forgiveness and togetherness, but I wonder if she had a say in the matter.

Bush delivered an awesome speech, but the clapping every time he paused (much like Angle getting bombarded with "what?"s everytime he pauses in his speech) was really irritating.

At least those attending the address weren't chanting "What?" during Bush's pauses. Maybe Congressional members are better than wrestling fans...nah.

I didn't watch. I'm never to thrilled with politicians in general, and with all of them in one place, I hate to see them all just patting themselves on the back. Anyway, did he mention anything at all about putting new government in Afgahnistan now that we've destroyed the Taliban? Maybe one a bit less friendly to the Heroin trade than the Northern Alliance?

OK...we are ALL politicians. We may not work for the government, or represent "the people," but we are all self-serving manipulators who are looking for what is best for ourselves. What you call "patting themselves on the back" is something we all do anytime we feel we deserve a reward for something.

Everything every single person on the face of the Earth does is done with selfish intentions. Don't ever forget that.

People, in my general opinion, are fine. We do what we do. We're human, whether we like it or not, and we can all be politicians, and as you say we all are. Not even all elected politicians are bad, IMO, but I think the current system is way... dunno, overtaxed. I've never met any of the senators, or congressmen or anyone who currently serves in a role that affects the lives of my parents, myself, and any children I may have in the future. I'm not sure how exactly to put what I'm trying to say into words right now. I think it's sad that even the Mayor of a city like Chapel Hill has to be so clouded in politics that most people don't know who is the Mayor, unless they are part of some lobby.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that on the scale which we practice it, politics has become a thing unto itself (nothing new, mind you) and has moved away from it's proper place which is to serve the people. Or something. Bleh, if I had a better idea of how to run the country or the world, I would share it. But as of now, I just kind of feel like things don't work quite right.

I didn't even watch it. I've never been all that interested in State of the Union addresses. I'm more interested in what Bush is going to do or not do than in what he says about it.

With the recent passing of Rosa Parks and now Coretta Scott King, you have to look back at the changes in our country over the last 60 years or so and wonder how they would be different if it were not for these two most remarkable women.
