Gillibrand works every room as if it were her last. If she wants to move up, and there's nothing she wants more in life, she's got to learn how to be a bit more subtle.
I thought she was going to slip Susan Rice some tongue right there.

"but this is the dullest State Of The Union speech ever"
I recall some of Clinton's that were much duller and longer. Clinton's were virtual laundry lists. Even W.'s were more interesting than some of Clinton's.

I'm so glad somebody else finds this deadly dull. It's completely lackluster.This is really Obama at his worst. No energy, charisma, leadership. And I say that even though I agree with almost everything he's saying!

What r40 said.
Another thing is that, for the previous four SOTU addresses, hanging in the atmosphere was the question of whether Obama will be re-elected.
The absence of that suspense takes something away from this and that will be so for the next two addresses.
His last SOYU address will be very bittersweet.

R45, same reason SC Justices don't stand to applaud.
Here are the GOP cunts who shook their heads when Obama mentioned equal pay. Hopefully they're identified and shamed.
Anyone recognize them?

"THEY DESERVE A VOTE."
WOW. That was pretty moving. Tears all around.
Even Boehner stood up and clapped for that. FFS.
And it sounds like Obama brought his own cheering crowd to drown out any of those assholes who think they might try to stir shit up.
They've got a LOT of supporters in the crowd this time around. They'll be no "YOU LIE" in this SOTU address.
