9:15 Obama breaks convention by refusing to start by opining about the State of the Union.
9:17 Okay, State of Union sound, but no thanks to Washington.
9:18 Only reference to budget deficits, I hope.
9:19 Oh no, Obama calls Washington “This Town.”
9:20 “Create jobs, not crises.” Good one.
9:22 Ah, the tyrant unveils his tyrannical determination to act alone!
9:23 Nice touch to move quickly from glowering threat to tribute to FLOTUS.
9:25 Wonder how many times the tribute to Boehner as the “son of a barkeep” has been put in
and deleted from speeches?
9:26 The “tax incentives to shift jobs overseas” is a Democratic golden oldie, but it still works.
9:27 First tyrannical executive order threat is to cut through bureaucratic red tape. Nice.
9:31 As Obama talks about natural gas, half expect Republicans to start chanting “Frack! Frack! Frack!”
9:34 “Climate change is a fact!” Truism, but also wingnut bait. He nearly spit the words out.
9:35 Eric Cantor claps minimally at “Get Er Done” passage on immigration reform.
