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: http://planetpov.com/live-events/

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.

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.

Checkmate K! It really was a great Obama speech with so many good ideas, passion and optimism. Take that gloom and doom GOP.

Game Set and Match and he looked so confident saying it while the GOP were stuck to their seats trying to fool everyone that they had changed. 😆 Changed what, facial expressions? They still looked awfully pained and constipated to me.

Kalima: sour and angry like a naughty child who stole the cookies, broke the jar and is angry that blaming his the other child isn’t working

Hi Fc, it might be considered cute with some 4 year old, but when a bunch of menopausal geezers do it, it’s just very embarrassing and extremely ugly to witness.

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.

Ridiculous.

SOTU Advice: Hammer the GOP
by Michael TomaskyFeb 12, 2013 4:45 AM EST

Republicans’ current strategy on the budget could conceivably fool Americans. Which is why Obama needs to clearly expose its dishonesty in his State of the Union, saysMichael Tomasky.

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.
