Post Forum Archive: State of the Union 2011

GOP gets two for the price of one

Tea Party Congressional darling Michelle Bachmann (R-Mn.), is taking liberties tonight that I've never seen a phantom American Socialist, Communist, or even a real Greenie take. She's an official Republican, not a (TP-Mn.) and yet she gets to deliver the...

The Bachmann Response

I don't think the kindergarten teacher, talk-down accusatory tone with exclamation points!! will contrast well with Obama's international, statesmen, future-focused speech. Bachmann throws lots of data out there; unfortunately most of it is fictional and Fox-framed, but her soundbites will...

Ryan response

Nice response by Paul Ryan, delivery much better than Bobby Jindal and much lower key than Bob McDonnell in the House of Delegates Chamber last year. Ryan gave a mature and adult like talk to the American people. He stuck...

Speech -- Wrap

I thought the speech worked well rhetorically but all the work is to-be-done. I was glad that Obama defended his initiatives without grandstanding. I thought the Udall sit-together initiative worked wonderfully in making the other branches look appropriately serious and...
