    Republicans can't be bothered to applaud for tax cuts.... for working people.

    Loving his statement that having high morals and living up to them make us stronger, not weaker. He's such a dude.

    I wonder how much of this stuff he is talking about is really going to come to fruition. I realy hope it will,but 8 years of being force fed bs by the Bush administration leaves me highly skeptical.

    I liked Obama's speech. I thought it was interesting that more than once he got standing ovations from Dems and Republicans. But I loved his line about when you drop out of school, you're not only dropping out on yourself, but on your country. That line spoke volumes.

    Now, I'm watching Jindal's response. I liked how Jindal walked out and under his breath he said 'Oh God.' He's an idiot.

    I loved what he had to say about education, esp. about dropping out of high school, and everyone committing to at least one year of higher education. I really hope the kids and youth watching at home took that to heart.

    You know, you just know there was at least one kid at home who will decide to go back to school because of this.

    I couldn't watch his response. He was talking like he was addressing a kindergarten class. Too Romper Room for me, I cut him off.

    I dare Grimm to go and ask a question. But I think 'Bush Speaking Tour' is a bit of an oxymoron, heavy on the moron.
