obama sotu

Tonight at 6:00 pm PST (9:00 pm EST) President Obama will deliver his 2013 State of the Union Address and you’re invited to join us here at PlanetPOV for a live chat here before, during and after the speech. The Republican response by Marco Rubio will follow it and a drinking game based on how many panders to Latinos tke place in Rubio’s speech might yield big dividends. Thee will also be a rebuttal speech by Rand Paul on behalf of the Koch Party…er…Tea Party but it will be broadcast only through the government mind control devices in the teeth of those with tinfoil hats.

We’ll open our chat at 5:30 PM PST so please feel free to join us then for SOTU appetizers then. We will be streaming the speech live here on our Live Events page so you can watch it at home or at The Planet.

You can participate in tonight’s chat either in the Live Events widget in the right column of every page (it will appear shortly before the chat begins) or on the full Live Events page by clicking Live Events in the menu above or clicking this link:

This should be a far more substantive speech than many SOTU speeches, gun control, immigration policies, Climate Change, the debt ceiling, the wars we’re still fighting and the use of drones, so many big issues that will be confronted this year will be on tap so I hope you’ll join us here tonight for our conversation about this important speech.

  1. Great speech and he made his point so well about the GOP by repeating that “we can do this together” and “I see no reason not to take a vote on this” when addressing Congress while looking at the Repubs without having to accuse them face to face with words.

    Well played Mr. President!

    Well I don’t know about you but I’m in no mood to watch Cubio-Rubio or “The Son of Ron Paul” make a complete balls up in their ignorant re”butt”als, so I’m switching off now.

    Have a nice evening. See you later.

  2. Anyone here?

    I don’t know if I can rip myself away from the live coverage of a sad example of humanity who has killed innocents being (apparently) burned to a crisp after taking his own life.

    Wall to wall coverage for hours.


    • Kalima, let’s face it, most Presidents use the SOTU address to burnish their image and accomplish very little else. Very few Presidents are as sincere as Obama so his SOTU is far more likely to me meaningful and substantial than most others in recent memory.

      • Oh absolutely AdLib, there are few leaders or politicians I believe in these days, and your President is one of the few. Knowing that he makes the GOP uncomfortable is one highlight of the evening. Knowing he believes in what he says and really means it, is another.

        I’ll be watching on C-Span to avoid the nasal “mumbling pudnuts”, so I might drop by again when it’s over as I can’t seem to be in two places at the same time.

  3. In a stroke of genius the GOP is having Marco Rubio who voted against the VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) will be delivering the response to President Obama’s SOTU address. So the signal the GOP is sending is they need Latino’s but not Latina’s in their continued war on women.

    Fortunately despite the GOP knuckle draggers the VAWA did pass the Senate.
