Did you watch the State of the Union address by President Obama tonight? Paul Ryan’s rebuttal? Michele Bachmann as she stared off into space?

Let’s hear your thoughts…

It was great I thought he really pushed education which in my mind is a major key to society’s success.

I thought the speech was good. But I didn’t think the focus on education was strong enough. If you want to refer to a Sputnik moment, you need to provide a goal and time line like Kennedy’s man on the moon promise. I was hoping for a goal of the best schools in the world in the next 15 years. Also, we need cuts in government spending, not to continue to spend at the current drunken sailor level for the next 5 years.

Honestly Outlaw, I wanted to watch her so I could just reconfirm in my own mind how nuts she is but after a few minutes I just couldn’t do it anymore.

Your response to her rebuttal is the only one that fits!

I didn’t see the whole thing, but I think she made some comment that she fell asleep. Real Professional on her part :-S

I saw part of the video on Youtube (CBS channel), or noticed it was uploaded. I’ll have to check it out.

I couldn’t watch. The longer I struggle for mental health the more I notice the craziness around me.
