The State of the Union - My Thoughts

I'm listening to the State of the Union Address. It's humorous to watch the two sides -- Republicans cheering and applauding - Democrats sitting solemnly - sometimes. It's going very well, though. President Bush is giving a great speech. He's speaking with conviction and authority - exactly what we need right now. He's projecting a strong and confident image. I like his tie, too. Laura Bush looks dignified and classy. Beautiful dress, by the way.(Don't you love the fashion review?) Laura Bush is a wonderful asset to both President Bush and the entire country. It's rather scarey to think of who COULD have been First Lady. "Class" is an adjective not associated with that particular person.

However, it should be noted that Democrats are standing and applauding often enough. Maybe they're beginning to realize that their extremism is causing them to lose their standing with the average American. It's time for some common middle ground to be found.

It's funny watching how often the cameras show Hillary as she applauds or smiles. Yeah -- she's running for president already. I doubt if many are fooled by her obvious pandering for the cameras.

Well, President Bush is about to end the speech. I don't think I'll listen to the Democratic response since they will only give their tired, lame same old-same old sound bites.

President Bush just ended his address with these words: "MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA."


Here are some other bloggers that have posts about the SOTUS:

The Pirate's Cove has thoughts similar to mine about Hillary and the Democrats.
Beth at Blue Star Chronicles talks about the Democratic Response - the "eyebrows" have it.
Captain's Quarters live-blogs the speech.
Well, LOTS of folks were live-blogging. Here's another one: A Soldier's Perspective. And Polipundit was an especially fun read.
