Tuesday night, Bush will address the new Congress and the nation again, with his State of the Union address. Let’s discuss!
What will he say? After 6 years in office, does anyone anticipate any new ideas? Another Lets get the steroids out of baseball, maybe? Mission to Mars, Part 2?
Will Bush congratulate Nancy Pelosi on accomplishing her First 100 Hours agenda? Will Bush be conciliatory towards the brand new Democratic majority?
Personally, I hope Bush says something about the slaughter in Darfur. I want the US to pressure the UN to take action there. That is something good and positive that George Bush can and should do.
I’m going to try to tune in, even though I find the president un-fucking-watchable anymore.
Stay tuned for the Democratic response, which will be given by the new senator from Virginia, Jim Webb. Senator Webb is the guy who knocked off George Allen, driving Allen from the senate AND the 2008 presidentail election (Allen was considered a GOP presidential front runner, 'til Webb cleaned his clock. Allen’s political career is probably over now). Jim Webb is my favorite new senator. Webb’s a real firecracker, or as they say in Boston, he’s a real pisser. I can’t wait to hear Webbs response.
Keep an eye on Senator Webb, he is one to watch in the future.
