Upbeat Biden urges U.S. unity and vows to restore blue-collar prideBy Sebastian Smith and Shaun Tandon WASHINGTON
©2023 GPlusMedia Inc.
Doesnt seem by looking at this picture, but he's the first octagenarian to deliver State of the Union, so...
But what I really want to know is why was a 10 foot high fence placed all around the Capitol Building just for this speech? Seems kind of strange, doesn't it?
MTG wants but one thing: attention.
I wasn’t happy when Pelosi ripped up Trump’s speech, but at least she did it quietly. And she passed meaningful legislation to help Americans.
Looks like the US has avoided a recession according to the IMF head. 2 months ago, things appeared dyer. Not any longer. She predicted a soft landing for the US, assuming Congress does their job. If they don't, the entire world economy will suffer - more so for poorer nations.
The GOP needs to stop being selfish.
What gets me is the guy kept talking about more spending, more entitlement and not one word about the deficit.
That alone is nothing to be upbeat about, and as crime continues to spiral out of control prices will go even higher. At this rate it's going to end up badly especially for the middle-class.
Like when Nancy when she tore up Trump’s SOTU speech?
Doesn't matter, the video visually made it worst.
Kevin will do the same.
At least he took his Ray Bans off for it.
You should've watched the speech on video/TV. He was pretty upbeat throughout.
Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga, is a disgrace even to the GOP.
Joe you are just a joke...
Nothing to be upbeat about.
most Americans say we are going in the wrong direction and that Biden hs actually accomplished “little or nothing”.
The previous administration cared less about the deficit increasing it by $7 trillion during a single term.
but of course. Here we go again. .
New, she's just a disgrace to the GOP RINO’s and no one cares about them, so good on her speaking her mind.
To fix the last admin blunder especially when it comes to rebuilding our military.
They're beginning to come down. Read the news.
RINOs = Republicans who have some respect for agreed-upon norms and manners (i.e., "conservatives")
You want everyone in the House disrupting SOTU speeches? Really?
MTG is not a conservative. She's just an attention-seeking bomb thrower.
Doesn’t she have staged school shootings and Jewish space lasers in her mind?
Is that the new GOP?
“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week and can barely feed their family.”
whose name Biden totally forgot, if he ever even knew it to begin with.
America still has a lot going for it, considering its economy, demographics and geographics. Much to the envy of the rest of the developed world. The state of its politics thankfully won't negate these advantages anytime soon.
Once again, the Repub second-graders in Congress show the American people what immature, insolent, idiots they are.
Marjorie Taylor Greene, of religious-funded space lasers fame, disrespected not only the President, but the entire audience in the Chamber and watching at home - absolutely disgusting...
But that's what Kevin has to contend with - a cabal of anti-democratic election deniers, science-skeptics, and flat out kooks.
And let's not forget serial liars, right Rep Santos?
The party has moved on from Biden,they have already made the decision,he should not run again
Nancy didn’t think she disrupted anything.
You can call a bunny cute and fluffy, but it’s still part of the rodent family.
I think it was the other way around. 54% of Dems don’t want Joe to run.
Nancy disrespected Trump and not a word from the left. Moving on…
Good, whatever euphemism you want to use, at least they’re true conservative and not the RINO big business swamp establishment nutsz
Liberals calling out liars….ROFL
Wow! Biden goaded the Republicans into publicly cheering for and supporting to not touch Social Security and Medicare on national television. That was something to watch!
How could not support tradies and manufacturing workers Yet here with have a women "I assume it a female " thumbing down on my mob, my tribe, my community of the manufacturer's. When her " I assume it a female" home toilet, air con, internet brakes down who is this person above is going contact. If me, I not coming out to service her needs.
I am the radical left,you have too be radical to deal with insecure Republicans,who days as viable party is measured in their political demise,their will never be a Republicans elected President for a 100 years
When you are boasting that gas prices at $3.45 and inflation of 6% are achievements because they are “down from their peak”? might be good.
until we find you created their peak and they are both still waaaaay up since you took over. inflation was only 1,6% and gas was $2.39.
Not something to be boasting about for sure.
You think they're third-graders? No way, they're not that mature.
Without saying a word...masterful.
RINO's? Like DeSantis?
Because the right hasn't the courage or integrity to do it.
Worked for Nancy….
Naw, they hate him, too much like Trump, just younger and without the baggage.
Did the right call out Omar? Yes…No?
Conservatives love to play at fiscal responsibility when they are not in power.
Obama got a deficit from Bush who got a surplus from Clinton.
Trump made it worse.
The facts don't care about your team spirit.
AOC roasted that clown MTG too recently.
AOC is a treasure and MTG and the House Republicans a global embarrassment.
Second picture down above.
Sure did - thanks for admitting that.
Trump and DeSantis alike? OK, glad to see you agree with what they say about one another.
Margie Q. Greene like many others in her klan, has rightly accused the Democratic Party of being out of touch with the average US American, but Greene recently complained she needs more money, that her annual salary of US$174,00 is not enough. Talk about out of touch.
MGT is spot on.
If it’s good for the goose, it’s good for the gander as well.
I agree with what they think about political issues and on that they’re one in the same.
Wrong! The only has ship in touch with her constituents, but that is one of the reasons why this woman continues to become a popular, lightning rod, for the left she’s toxic, we get it, and that’s fine, the left thinks AOC is a shining star for the Democrat she is, so their opposites on the political spectrum both of them outspoken both of them will say whatever they need to at getting their points across.
Nothing says financial struggle like a white sable that would make Cruella DeVille envious.
Spot on stupid and utterly vulgar - or typical MTG.
And Nancy sure roasted Trump's goose - thanks again for admitting it. LOL.
Sure, one's a RINO Globalist groomer and the other a re-election Loser - at least that's what they say about one another. Worse too. Glad to see you agree with them.
She says forest fires are caused by religious-funded space lasers. You agree - yes or no?
Biden is functional when he has something to hold onto and look in one direction.
MTG is hilarious!
Carrying a white balloon through the hallway after.
Foreigners should not even to a point comment about American politics, because politics are just one aspect,their are judicial mean by which and individual can achieve political power in America, even foreign news service, American politics are shape hour by hour by the news
she compared Tyre Nichols getting beat to death by his GF’s cop ex and his buddies to Ashli Babbitt. Then she goes on about anti white racism then shows up at the SOU in head to toe white carrying a white balloon.
good to see you heard her dog whistle.
This is definitely getting ugly. America is clearly irrevocably divided. American allies must be seriously concerned at this.
Gosh, I hope you call out the other libs that are just as vile. Swalwell, Omar, Bush Thalib as well, be consistent, don’t stop now.
If you’re happy and eladed about that, I feel the same about MTG
Well, whatever the Dems want to call her that’s on them, she’s there to stay and the Dems just have to take it. You know what they say about Karma….
Why? The balloon was made in China.
I'm not surprised anymore by the sheer ignorance of the left. Nor am I surprised by the continued blaming of Trump for problems caused by the current administration. Democrats can't accept responsibility for their actions and yes, Joe Biden is a disgrace!
Funny that you say that as a Democrat!
Record low unemployment in the USA shows the success of Biden's policies.
However, something needs to be done about inequality. The poorest 20% of Americans are now poorer than the poorest 20% of Slovenians - an astounding fact given that the latter was part of communist Yugoslavia.
With the policies of this administration don’t expect that number to get better.
Alternative, American generally get along with members of the opposite party,i.know Republicans that I consider friends,I do not discuss politics,with them just the weather and thing that are going on in their lives
The wealthy billionaires and the fossil fuel companies greatly increased their wealth during the covid pandemic. The gap between the rich and the poor continues to grow.
Belrick,name one White leader that has a viable chance as President,since Republicans is a mostly White party on the decline, political,but demographics
Kamala awkwardly stood up and started clapping at a point when no one else did, and Biden was still talking about something mundane.
Then, at another time, Biden started getting angry and making a snarl--we know the face--but it was during him making a point that was a positive one, and he realized it mid-sentence, then switched to a smile.
Gotta love the guy.
The only way to meaningfully reduce the deficit is to cut defense spending.
Not just them companies that sell renewables that depend on fossil fuels to make these renewables. A lot of people got Rich.
MTG is a Lib? OK, if you say so.
Uh, who is her - Trump or DeSantis? That's who each is referring to.
Showcasing that what is inside the balloon is also what's inside her head.
Funny, Biden didn’t bring that up, wonder why?
I would have thought you'd be glad he didn't. LOL.
It would have made him look better, at least optically of that’s even saying anything.
OK, he could have said he was 1 for 1 knocking down Chinese balloons compared to Trump's 0 for 3.
One other question - why is Trump calling DeSantis a "RINO Globalist" and a "Groomer"?
Still no proof or evidence. Funny, it was brought up until this thing happened to Biden and now all of a sudden it happened under Trump as well, and the people that say this can’t prove anything, time or dateZ
I could care less. I like, either of them can be President, the beef between them has nothing to do with his base, it’s a personal thing.
None of these people loudly interrupted a State of the Union Address. Let’s at least keep the whataboutisms in the same ballpark.
May I ask you why you think MTG should be admired for this behavior? You seem positively thrilled by what she did. Why?
Happened 3 TIMES under Trump...even Fox says so.
But calling someone a RINO is as bad in MAGA-world as it gets - even you have said all the RINOs are traitors. So why did Trump call DeSantis a RINO? You may not agree, but a lot of other Trump supporters will. And a "Groomer"? Wow, that's a major slam. No Dem has called DeSantis that.
Yes, you’re right, ripping up a sitting Presidents SOTU is worse and on camera!
Because she despises the swamp vehemently.
Not thrilled, just told it like it is. By the way, did you denounce Nancy when she store up Trump’s speech?
Fox also said that they can’t confirm or deny.
Again, That’s between them. I have nothing to do with it nor am I interested.
Did any of the people you mentioned do what Pelosi did or what MTG did?
OK. I understand. Any behavior that satisfies your itch to stick it to the libs is OK by you.
But they reported it and didn't deny it.
OK. But your archive is full of posts saying RINOs are traitors who all deserve to be kicked out of the party. You even called McCarthy a 'Spineless RINO". It's OK to flip on your views, just as long as you fess up to it.
But DeSantis is either a RINO and a Groomer or he isn't. You have said DeSantis is a "rockstar" - so you must conclude Trump is lying when he insults him. So why is he lying?
Wrong is wrong, if it’s wrong for MTG to shout out in anger, it’s wrong for Pelosi to tear up a sitting presidents speech. Simple.
If you see it so, that’s just how you see it.
They never confirmed it either. Especially all the lib networks, not one of them.
I think Kevin is a RINO that now sees the light. He’s evolving, that’s a good thing for the GOP
Again, you can wrap your brain all day on that, I don’t and won’t, it’s childish. I just love both men, either one can be President and I’m good.

Did you get rich off the covid pandemic?
a teacher contributing to the delinquency of minors he’s responsible for vs strolls through the changing room of teen beauty pageants “because he can.”
what’s not to love?
It's not simple. You mentioned Swalwell, Omar, and Tlaib, and none of them did anything resembling what either Pelosi or MTG did during a SOTU speech. That's the topic of this story. I'm just calling you out for that sloppiness of thinking there : )
Look, if you can’t, or won’t even condemn what Nancy Pelosi did at the state of the union with Trump then don’t even bring up what MTG. Either you condemn all bad behavior or be a partisan hack and just condemn only the actions of the person you hate.
Sure they have
OK, so you flipped from your post above - again, it's OK as long as you admit it.
So he's still a traitorous RINO, just one you like at the moment.
Well, if you love both, then how can you not be angry when one calls the other a "Loser" and the other says he is a "phony" and a "RINO Globalist" that "grooms young girls"?
Hasn't Trump just handed the Dems a huge club to pummel DeSantis if he is as you want the 2024 nominee? "Trust Trump, DeSantis is a phony who bungled COVID and grooms high school girls"...
Which is why you're praising MTG and criticizing Pelosi. I've criticized both, then and now.
If you think what Pelosi did was wrong, by your own credo you should be saying the same about MTG.
I thought it was a good speech
