The State of the Union has been broadcast by radio since 1923, on television since 1947, and in prime time since 1965. Tonight TIME will cover President Obama’s 2013 State of the Union address in real time through live tweets. Check it out below, along with the rest of our post-speech analysis on Swampland.
"I hope whatever compromise Obama's expecting to reach will cover the cost of the government he's envisioning."
Rubio is now claiming that his father is black, his mother was once a woman, he was young not too long ago, he flirted with the Jewish religion, he's poor in a rich way, he once ate government cheese at a friend's house, he spelled abortion correctly in divinity school, his car was made in Detroit, he likes apple pie and he was a virgin until he wasn't.
@sacredh Also, he used student loans but he didn't enjoy it. He doesn't dance because he doesn't want people to think he's having sex. He reads, but only the Bible and the Constitution.
We won the election. Obama gives a good SOTU speech. Rubio wasn't very good (I'm being generous). I paid my house off. Maybe there is a God.
@sacredh It's a long time until 2014 and the start of the 2016 campaign. There's all kinds of ways for Rubio to screw the pooch, and I'm betting he finds more than a few.
I love the republican party. They're making every mistake I want them to. Well, it's bedtime for me. I have to take my dog in to the vet tomorrow to get her stitches/sutures removed.
@sacredh It's a catch-22. If he throws in with the Tea Party, he loses the general. If he doesn't throw in with the Tea Party, he never makes it to the general. Either way, buh-bye, Marco.
It got into a fight with Trump's do' and lost. The top of Rand's head seemed like a good place to die.
@sacredh No bloodflow will do that.
@sacredh I didn't see The Nuge. He had to be chewing furniture during that "give them a vote" portion.
I wonder if Ted Nugent has killed something yet. I wondered the same thing about Boehner but I'm sure that he's killed a couple of fifths by now.
Thanks to most of the swamp team for the liveblog. I'm glad to see Adam's still on board and didn't quit swampland. However, I wrote "most" because Katy Steinmetz was left out. She is part of the swamp team, yes? (or should be) New dude Alex Rogers also should promoted to official swamper along with Katy for his resurrection of MMR's.
Rubio: "I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in".
Mitt: I still live in some of the same houses that the kids kind of remember.
Rubio is a no-no person and america needs someone to see the light at the end of the tunnel and brings us out with real solutions
@Sue_N Yes, he is a twit. That explains why he's a GOP darling.
@sacredh He did not close the sale with you?
@Sue_N Thank God someone else thinks so! Really, between Rubio and Rand Paul there might be a total of seven brain cells.
State of the Union summary in one sentence: If you want a job, then move to China because we are going to spend our time and your deficit dollars on more important things like "homosexual marriage", immigration, gun control, climate control, Obamacare, etc.
@mary.waterton Reason Republican party is now irrelevant in one easy post. See above^^^
@sacredh Remember Bobby Jindal's GOTP response? Delivery like he was Mr. Roger's Neighborhood and we were a bunch of pre-schoolers? One of the reasons Jindal will never be President. Chump, indeed.
@sacredh Boehner needs serious bourbon now. He should avoid Maker's Mark, however. It's awesome stuff, but they're now watering it down / lowering proof.
Ted Nugent and Boehner both look like they'd rather be dressed in drag than be listening to Obama tonight.
OT, but LeBron James had another 30 point game tonight and shot over 70%. It's the 1st time in NBA history that a player has had 30+ points in 6 straight games and shot over 60% in all of them.
Obama says The last 12 of 15 years have been the hottest on record...........
These will increase in frequency and intensity, like birth pains, as the return of Christ draws near....
For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows.....
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved.......
You can't legislate responsible parenting, just like you can't be there when a teenager decides to have unprotected sex and conceives a baby out of wedlock, or be there when a person decides to keep smoking. People do things they Re Ware have consequences, but are not being held accountable because we are now
The camera just panned some of the angry, bitter, sour-faced House GOTP and I laughed out loud. Thanks for the LOLZ, baggers!
@Hollywooddeed Orange Johnny looks like he's trying to glare holes into the back of Obama's head.
