29. Obama is real good at talking.

.... but like most presidents of the last couple of decades, it's all talk.

I'm sure he will say some wonderful things I agree with 100%. I'm equally sure that nothing of substance will change anyway.

32. I like Obama, but watching him read a speech written by someone else, from a teleprompter,

does not really appeal to me. I will read the analyses and skim the transcript.

Looking forward to the Presidential debates, however. Just thinking back to his zinger from last time around: "well, what we shouldn't do is sing songs about bombing Iran" (probably paraphrasing here).

2. Depends how it goes

I don't see a poor performance by Obama being all that good for the pukes (~6) but a good performance by Obama makes it a 9, he can bury the bastards tonight.

I could handle getting tanked right now, but I'm witholding weekday drinking to lose a bit of weight, so I'd probably take a shot (bourbon, not beer) for every "let me be clear".

7. Would the GOP be as buried as they were in '08 elections?

Those mofos ressurected themselves in a major way.

The media in this country will not stop propping up the GOP. That's the real problem.

3. Unless Obama announces we have made contact with extra-terrestrials

 



I expect it will be like most SOTU addresses, a lot of sound and fury but ultimately signifying nothing.

5. From the Prez' view -- all free air time in a campaign year -- priceless!

From mine personally, I will give it a 4 since Gabby Giffords will be there, perhaps for the last time.

I think it's a good opportunity to roll out the themes for the campaign.

I'm hoping he hits income inequality hard.

23. A 1 if it does not translate into constructive action, could be a 10 if it is sincere

and results in sincere efforts toward major progressive change.
