Watch President Obama’s final State of the Union address and join our conversation

Tonight President Obama will deliver his final State of the Union Address. No need for cable to watch the president’s remarks. You can watch the livestream beneath. We’ve also included two live reaction feeds for your viewing pleasure.

At the conclusion of President Obama’s address, we invite you to join us on our separate live thread, where Aleister will be live blogging the Republican rebuttal given by Gov. Nikki Haley.

The speech:

What can we expect?

Leslie has given us a preview of what’s to come here.

Earlier today, Iran detained 10 U.S. Navy sailors. According to the White House, President Obama has no plans to address this incident:

Excerpts from President Obama’s speech released earlier today suggest we’re going to hear a lot of talk about change. Shocking, I know. Hope you have your bourbon handy.

we’re watching college tree hockey at our house, not ouot of interest so much, but just to help drive down the ratings…

i’d rather shave off all my body hair with a cheese grater, then use acetone as an after shave, than listen to that lying ba5tard.

You can ask a lot of me, but not this.

I’d sooner gouge my eye out with a spoon than watch that arrogant narcissist.

1/17 – our only hope.

I think I see a pattern emerging.

PS: destroyed economy, high unemployment, high taxes, weak military, unrest all over the world, frisky Iran, unanswered threats everywhere, Moonbeam Brown in Sactomato…

it’s beginning to look a lot like 1979 again.

the problem is, where’s Ronald Reagan & Maggie Thatcher when you really need them?


Hold on, I’m throwing up in my martini! What a scum bag actor!

I’ve won 7 games of MS solitaire in a row! And still going!

Never have seen a more divisive, arrogant president.

To think he projected a new start from the smallness of politics.

He lectures as if he is God.

I watched. Waiting for return of the styrofoam columns.

I watched some boring movie my husband chose on Netflix. It was still better than watching Barack.

I didn’t watch, but was China mentioned? Us millionaires and billionaires are not fans of what they’ve done to the market in the past few weeks.

A tiny, petty, whiny speech by a tiny, petty, whiny man. He offered absolutely NO solution to any of the problems he whined about, and complained basically complained that Republicans kept him from single handedly ending the world’s problems.

Another example of his textbox narcissistic personality disorder.

We have cheese graters, gouged eyes, martini vomit, MS solitaire, Styrofoam columns, Netflix, and China, all adds up to SÒTUS Fail. Why am I not surprised?

That drunk Boehner was there in spirit, in the form of Ryan.

I thought it was a pretty good movie.

At the end, the protagonist admits to a tiny flaw but as CO of the positively changing World State takes his credits for making world peace and encourages everyone to focus on the few little issues that remain.

The audience standing ovation track was timed well too. (And didn’t you just love those shots of the stony faces on those obsolete generals?)
