seriously. the people they get to reply to the president's state of the union are brutal.

that lady looked like her fake smile was going to crack. and they all use really stupid mr. rogers voices.

that half-asian doctor guy they used last year was even worse.

are those really the best speakers that entire political party can find? they are not going to convince ANYBODY with those shitty, unconvincing crappy speakers.

they need martin sheen.

I agree.

The Democratics, for whatever reason, feel inclined to take the soft-talking-personable approach to speaking, instead of the hard-nosed "this is what we're gonna do" approach taken by the republicans.

I don't know why the Dems do it...not like it really matters though...it's all the same shit.

Ohhhh! Look! We're gonna cut taxes by 5% for small business owners!

Ohhh! Look! We're gonna increase spending on health care programs!


Ohhh! Look! We're gonna bomb that country over there! Yah, the purple-colored one.

Nancy Pelosi should learn how to blink and not keep her eyes propped so wide open. She scared the shit out of me.

speech opportunities like that are basically about SHOW BUSINESS. don't they have anyone capable of giving an inspirational speech? the kind that sends shivers up spines and makes audiences leap to their feet?

some of the rebuttal topics - patriot act, gay marriages, etc. - were PERFECT opportunities to preach about how america is about FREEDOM and how that freedom must be protected at any and all costs, because americans died for the freedom and that freedom is the foundation upon which america was built, yadda yadda yadda.

they should hire aaron sorkin to write their speeches and pay for at least one member of their fucking party to take some kind of acting or public speaking classes.

Couldn't agree with you more!!!!!


No leader of the opposition and it shows. They need a bulldog and they don't have it. I would have taken angry, I would have taken sarcastic, I could have taken any emotion what so ever. No punctuation in the speach, no witt nothing. What was I supposedto get passionate about, angr about, hurt about.

The was answering duty while avoiding platform.

"Democrats are committed to strengthening the state of our union, to reach for a safer, more prosperous America. Together, let us make America work for all Americans..."

The Democratic Response to the State of the Union By the Democratic Leaders of the U.S. Congress

Part 1: Protecting American Security at Home and Abroad

The state of our union is indeed strong, due to the spirit of the American people - the creativity, optimism, hard work, and faith of everyday Americans.

The State of the Union address should offer a vision that unites us as a people -- and priorities that move us toward the best America. For inspiration, we look to our brave young men and women in uniform, especially those in Iraq and Afghanistan. Their noble service reminds us of our mission as a nation -- to build a future worthy of their sacrifice.

Tonight, from the perspective of ten years of experience on the Intelligence Committee working on national security issues, I express the Democrats' unbending determination to make the world safer for America -- for our people, our interests and our ideals.
really so far they on't soun any different.


IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN

Democrats have an unwavering commitment to ensure that America's armed forces remain the best trained, best led, best equipped force for peace the world has ever known. Never before have we been more powerful militarily. But even the most powerful nation in history must bring other nations to our side to meet common dangers.
Okay they still havent stated a contrary belief.

The President's policies do not reflect that. He has pursued a go-it-alone foreign policy that leaves us isolated abroad and that steals the resources we need for education and health care here at home.

The President led us into the Iraq war on the basis of unproven assertions without evidence; he embraced a radical doctrine of pre-emptive war unprecedented in our history; and he failed to build a true international coalition.

Therefore, American taxpayers are bearing almost all the cost -- a colossal $120 billion and rising. More importantly, American troops are enduring almost all the casualties -- tragically, 500 killed and thousands more wounded.
Other than the fact that they have to post the contrary to war I'm not hearing enough. Take a stand, say its wrong, say something with some passion. Nope nothing hear, they mixed lives with money talking about war. who wrote this!!

MAKING AMERICA SAFER AND MORE SECURE

As a nation, we must show our greatness, not just our strength. America must be a light to the world, not just a missile.

Forty three years ago today, as a college student standing in the freezing cold outside this Capitol Building, I heard President Kennedy issue this challenge in his Inaugural Address: "My fellow citizens of the world," he said, "ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man."

There is great wisdom in that, but in it there is also greater strength for our country and the cause of a safer world.

Instead of alienating our allies, let us work with them and international institutions so that together we can prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and keep them out of the hands of terrorists.
You heard Kennedy once so you get to quote him, well done from the marketing stand point. Even better bcause Ted Kennedy actually showed passion.

Other than wanting more allies with sme strength she still hasn't said a really contrary thing. Its not an official statement of policy, its a mild mild critique of the obvious.

Who are they selling this speach to. I hate Bush and they really aren't making me MAD at him yet.

Instead of billions of dollars in no-bid contracts for politically- connected firms such as Halliburton, and an insistence on American dominance in Iraq, let us share the burden and responsibility with others, so that together we can end the sense of American occupation and bring our troops home safely when their mission is completed.
and bring our troops home safely when their mission is completed.

anyone else see it. this is like sayng its always in the last place you looked. No fuck your going to bring the bys hm when the mission is done. What was that mission again??? Why are they here in the first place, why have you mentions two topics since yu last really talked abut the war.

Instead of the diplomatic disengagement that almost destroyed the Middle East peace process and aggravated the danger posed by North Korea, let us seek to forge agreements and coalitions - so that, together with others, we can address challenges before they threaten the security of the world.

TERRORISM AND HOMELAND SECURITY

We must remain focused on the greatest threat to the security of the United States - the clear and present danger of terrorism. We know what we must do to protect America, but this Administration is failing to meet the challenge. Democrats have a better way to ensure our homeland security.
The fist peace of policy is about to come. Seriously this far in an the first peace of actual policy is about to happen.

One hundred percent of containers coming into our ports or airports must be inspected. Today, only 3 percent are inspected. One hundred percent of chemical and nuclear plants in the United States must have high levels of security. Today, the Bush Administration has tolerated a much lower standard.

One hundred percent communication in real time is needed for our police officers, firefighters, and all our first responders to prevent or respond to a terrorist attack. Today, the technology is there, but the resources are not. One hundred percent of the enriched uranium and other material for weapons of mass destruction must be secured. Today, the Administration has refused to commit the resources necessary to prevent it from falling into the hands of terrorists.
Okay nce try bt Im going to say double whammy on this one. Bush is asking for more money to do exactly this. they're testing automated container nsection systems as I type this. Fist bit of policy and it sounds like militaizing the border, an giving the police more powers. I now understand why nobody who is left wing really supports this party.

America will be far safer if we reduce the chances of a terrorist attack in one of our cities than if we diminish the civil liberties of our own people.
sorry there it is!! give the police more communicatons but don't reduce civil librities. batten down the hatches but yur freedm is safe.

THE ARMED FORCES AND VETERANS

As a nation, we must do better to keep faith with our armed forces, their families and our veterans. Our men and women in uniform show their valor every day. On the battlefield, our troops pledge to leave no soldier behind. Here at home, we must leave no veteran behind. We must ensure their health care, their pensions, and their survivors' benefits.
You know he speach is comming to a close, shes talking about the poor vets. Yet again this sounds more republican than democrat.

'THE FUTURE OF OUR CHILDREN IS AT STAKE'

The year ahead offers great opportunity for progress and perhaps new perils still hidden in the shadows of an uncertain world. But you, the American people, have shown again and again that you are equal to any test. Now your example summons all of us in government, Republicans and Democrats, to a higher standard.

This is personal for all of us, in every community across this land. As a mother of five, and now as a grandmother of five, I came into government to help make the future brighter for all of America's children. As much as at any time in my memory, the future of our country and our children is at stake.

Democrats are committed to strengthening the state of our union - to reach for a safer, more prosperous America.

Together, let us make America work for all Americans - let us restore our rightful role of leadership in the world, working with others for "the freedom of man."

I'm now proud to introduce my colleague, the outstanding Senate Democratic leader, Tom Daschle.


Sorry lost oppertunity. I shuld be jumping for the alternative and I'm just not passionate.
