If you are a conservative you liked it and if you are a liberal you didn’t as are most of the SOTU addresses.  Trump was a lot more “presidential” than I expected.  He really didn’t go off the reservation too bad with his typical trash talking.  I thought listing the accomplishments he is taking credit for was a good move rather than making a lot of promises.  I’m sure the fact checkers will go over it with a fine toothed comb and pick it apart but I’m speaking more of the optics of the speech.

I think he did a good job of making his case for a border wall/fence/barrier by using I believe El Paso’s drop in the crime rate after a fence went up.

Of course he poked the socialist bear a bit.  The minute he mentioned supporting Venezuela’s new President I knew he was going to use that as an example to rail against socialism.

I was surprised that CBS came out with a poll with something like a 76% positive view of the speech.

I do think the Democratic women looked bad trying to go girl power.  Pelosi’s little stunt of ignoring the President’s speech by “reading” makes her look like a horse’s ass.  Of Course, Trump getting them to break form and jump up to applause just adds to how silly they looked.

It was a red meat speech to the base and Trump will probably get a bump in the polls, but they won’t last long.

I actually watch Stacey Abrahams Democrat response and it was flat and off topic.  It was obviously written some time ago and didn’t really address much of anything covered in the SOTU address.

I’ve SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It’s a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing “I’m an Oscar Meyer Wiener”.

I had to work, and missed it, and UNC hammering NCSU in basketball. I’ll have to catch up on it this weekend.
