State of the Union Open Thread


I watched the State of the Union last night but I really don’t have much to say about it except that it was great to see Nancy Pelosi recognized as the first female Speaker of the House, and heartening to think that we only have to hear one more SOTU address from George W. Bush.

Think Progress has posted a great annotated video of the speech which jumps to key moments. I’ve posted the link below, as well as a link to the Democratic response from Jim Webb.

Feel free to discuss in the comments.
