20. when he first took office, I said he'd be the greatest.

Lost an abusive, racist, alcoholic boyfriend over that! Lost some so-called friends. Had some doubts when the negativity got deep here.

But I think it's the truth.

He held out realistic hope always based in ethical ideals, and backed up his goals moving forward with the record of successes achieved already. (I watched on whitehouse.gov, which had split screen with added visual info)

This man will go down in history as the best president of the century. For this country to come back after 6 years, is unprecedented. Is there anyone out there that thinks we'd be this far into a recovery, after what Bush did and damn near took us all down? And then to deal with all the racism and obstructionism, and still be where we're at today? I'm quite impressed.

Obama can walk the walk, and talk the talk. I'd vote for him again, if I could.

He said it's time to move past 9/11 and fear-based politics. That's significant and historical.

Time for bold actions that expand opportunity. Like free community college, child-care initiatives, raising the minimum wage. He will veto any economic bill that doesn't help strengthen the middle class.

It's up to us and others to keep moving forward.

I wish that he had stumped with about 25% of this a few months ago; the GOP would have never taken anywhere near as many seats!

Had to love Joni Ernst's 'GOP Response to the State of the Union Address' that started out with, 'I'm not going to respond to the speech". She looked sort of like Dana Carvey doing the Church Lady character, but with a Stepford Wives spin to it.

He's learned the hard way that he has been lied about, edited out and distorted on MSM. So he traveled almost daily through all of 2014, often stopping in several states in one day. He told real people the same things he talked about tonight.
