Quote from ZASHAGALKA
Would it surprise you if I said that I didn't watch it and frankly don't care.
I think if I were the President, my SOU address would go something like this:
"The State of the Union is strong, as usual. Thank you."
As it is, wish lists from Presidents, whether I respect them (as I do President Bush) or not, are silly and mostly fictional. I like politics, but if I want fiction, I'll read Orson Scott Card or a host of other, much better writers.
I agree with you on everything but respecting Bush's wish list. Heck, his wish list is for world domination!
I didn't watch it. Last year the local radio station was holding a game - everytime he flubbed a word, take a shot; everytime he mentioned Iraq, flash something, etc. Was alot of fun.
I can get the state of the union from watching or reading the news everyday. I don't need the president telling me about Iraq, terrorists, axis of evil, etc.
