I am surprised no one else started this thread.
I was pleased, annoyed, and some other feelings during it. I like that our President has a personality. Having a sense of humor is good I think.
I also like that he berated the entire congress (as well as the Supreme Court... who in my opinion deserved it) for not making any policy...
I like that he is throwing out Republican ideas to see if the R's can actually support something he does, or if they are completely unable to agree with something he says or does. It will be interesting to see if a bill comes to be about Nuclear Power or Oil drilling.
I think he is being disingenuous when he states that he is open door and transparent. He could do a MUCH better job of this. All of Washington could.
I also like his approach on jobs. He is trying to find a way. I like that.
In the end, I don't like some of his approaches, and I have a tough time believing that any of it will actually happen... but I like the concepts.
The Republican response was horrible. Not only was it obviously written without the SOTU in mind, but really was just talking points, and just as many facts that were sketchy as Obama's.
