Live Blogging the State of the Union

A free Iraq... a very strong start...

Looks confident and relaxed... relates to average American...

2.3 million new jobs. Very hard to debate that that is anything but spectacular especially given the circumstances.

Cuts deficit in half by 2009, will happen and will again show that the deficit doomsdayers are always, always wrong.

Going down the elements of a "ownership society". I can imagine what the people at The Corner are saying... "He's not a Conservative", Apparently they believe only they define a conservative....

Trigger happy on the applause...

Four years of debate is enough for the energy plan. Sticks it in the eyes of the Democrats...

Compares terror war to fall of other tyranny's.

Providence leads to freedom...

Amen.


One of the better speeches of his Presidency. Mother of fallen soldier hugs survivor of Saddams tyranny. The sum of the past two years.

Good night and more tomorrow.



Until the fight is won... That is the key and that is what the Dems do not have the will to do...

Values

Marriage amendment... still supports it and he should. It will pass one day.

Culture of life... Stem cell research and the selling of human life as a comodity...

Not legislate from bench... Here comes the judges and Dem obstructionism. The Dems have become the party of fillibuster and obstructionism.


Message to 55 and older. Good hit on the Dems, because they will try to scare the old people.

Reform of tax code... Can you say Fair tax?

More trigger happy applause...

More fodder for The Corner, worker permits. K-Lo is crying, but I do not hear a better plan coming from her.

Starts on Social Security...

Speaks to 55 and older... Cuts the legs out from under the Dems... Fantastic job speaking and relating to the country...

Very strong on Social Security thus far...

How, oh how will the Dems rebut this? Oh, lies I suppose.

Speaking on responsibility... and now the best idea in decades voluntary personal security accounts...

Look this idea may be the death nell for the Dems. Younger people understand the President and will resent the Dems opposition, I know I am of the generation and I think it more than anything exposes te Dems for who and what they are.

At risk youth and faith based initiatives.. led by the First Lady, loved by all and it is apparent why when they show her on TV...

Ryan White act... Focuses on African Americans

DNA evidence... The Corner will say this is his steroids moment

Foreign Policy

Freedom from Fear... With the Iraq election behind him, it will be difficult from the Dems to take him on on this issue without looking very bad...

List of allies in Iraq, speaks of the coalitions. Twenty eight countries woth troops on the ground... Hard to argue with...

Force of human freedom... hard to argue with the power of that force after the Iraqi election.

Ultimate goal is to end tyranny, continuation of inauguration...

Freedom leads to peace. Yep.

Landmark events in history of freedom...

Palestinians... Rice going to Middle East, two state solution, peace within reach. $350 million, let's see how it is allocated.

Wow hits directly at Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Well, they need it.

Syria, very strong words. Assad presently changing knickers...

Support for people of Iran... T-t-talkin' bout a revolution...

Iraqi's earned respect... Indeed and to say the least.

We will succeed in Iraq... Hear that Oh Bloated One from Massachusetts?

No artificial timeline... Hear that Oh Dim One from Nevada?

Mr. and Mrs. Norwood. Mr Kennedy, Kerry et al, please face the Norwoods and explain your stance please.
