I did. What was your opinion on it? What did you agree or disagree with?

I didn't, I don't care much for Obama, or politics for that matter. I never watched George Bush either.

I didn't. I didn't know until I noticed youtube was getting questions for him, then I submitted a trollish question hehehe

But either way, I don't really care for politics, so even if I did know, I wouldnt have watched it
I asked for it. This is what I wanted.

I didn't watch it, nothing like a bunch of people in suits reminding us how bad our lives are while they are living like royalty.

I intentionally avoided it. I don't need to sit and listen to Obama talk for an hour about "hope and change" when all he's really done is increase debt like never before.

septembern : I didn’t watch it last night because I was actually resting… (Had a long week last week, still recouping.) I heard that he did very well with the points he wanted to get across. It is nice that at least this time he wasn’t heckled by a member of an opposing party as if it were a school assembly…

I wish more people would him on the crap he says.

No, I didn't. I saw everyone's status updates about it on Facebook though. Overall I don't really have an opinion formed on Obama, or most politicians for that matter...

I did because I am actually active in politics and so I pay attention to what is going on in the world. I found the speech good, and I look forward to his proposed budget ideas.

For the people who've been living in a whole for the last decade: We were already in debt, out military is not weak, it is strong and even the Secretary of Defense says that funding for it could be cut (which a recent poll showed was supported by 55% of Americans over cutting social security), the President was born in Hawaii and has a birth certificate and numerous other things to prove it.

For the people living in a whole the last two years: the stimulus worked, jobs are coming back, the stock market didn't crash. Obama's speech talked about the need for spending wisely and investing in necessary areas like infrastructure, education, and encouraging entrepreneurship. He made several gestures of working together to move forward, saying that we need to fix what needs fixing and move on instead of refighting battles from the last two years.

I felt he made a very good comparison of other nations passing us up in various areas now with how the nation felt when the USSR launched Sputnik and beat us into space. His message was that back then, we took that defeat and turned it into a huge industry that produced millions of good jobs and in the end we were the first to the moon, not the Soviets. He said that this was our Sputnik moment, our chance to seize the initiative and work together to move forward and take the lead in areas like scientific development, education, and industry. For anyone that understood his reference, it was very inspiring. Sadly, it has been made apparent that many people, Sarah Palin included, are ignorant of history. She actually said that she thought the President was saying we should celebrate the USSR defeating us, that we should act like the Russians launching Sputnik, and that the Sputnik program is what bankrupted the USSR. Sputnik launched in 1957, the Soviet Union went bankrupt from the Arms Race and collapsed in 1991. That is basic history on the Cold War, something you learn in grade school. As a future history teacher, to hear her say that I wanted to cry!

"We were already in debt" - to which 3 trillion was added in only 2 years.

"the stimulus worked" - who is living in the hole? How is that 9.5% unemployment working out for you? The stimulus failed to do what we were told it was supposed to do and that was keep unemployment under 8%. To call it a success at this point is delusional.

Why are you talking about Sarah Palin? Is she in office anywhere? Is she a policy maker? Then talk about someone relevant rather than someone on the fringe. It's comments like this that make communication between left and right impossible.

The woman is planning on running for president next year, as much as I want to ignore her I cannot. People listen to her and actually believe what she says, and it is wrong for her to say such things, even if it does ensure that there is no way in hell the Republican Party will back her in 2012.

The stimulus kept the economy from collapsing. It is growing and getting stronger, and we are pulling out of the whole. Unemployment is still a problem, but the jobs are coming back, and if the bickering would stop they could work together to get more jobs back and get unemployment back down. The point of the stimulus was to prevent another Depression, when the unemployment rate was 25%. Do you honestly think that would have been preferable?

I don't know if it would have been as bad, since the Depression got that bad because Hoover f***ed up... but I don't think the unemployment rate would be where it is, I think it would have hit much higher.
