Opinion polls show Biden, 81, and Trump, 77, closely matched in the race. Most American voters are unenthusiastic about the rematch after Biden defeated Trump four years ago.

Biden's delivery was forceful and it will undercut a lot of the rhetoric on the right about cognitive fitness.

His remarks about billionaires paying lower tax rates than teachers, affordable health care and economic opportunity were all good, with Congress the implementation remains a big question.

I wish he did not come with so much baggage, like making his home state of Delaware a corporate tax bolthole to rival the Cayman Islands.

Trump, meanwhile, sent a steady stream of messages blasting Biden on his Truth Social platform. "He looks so angry when he’s talking, which is a trait of people who know they are 'losing it,'" Trump wrote. "The anger and shouting is not helpful to bringing our Country back together!"

Weak. Pot. Kettle.

I expected something snappier from Trump, he seems to be losing it.

Biden's delivery was forceful and it will undercut a lot of the rhetoric on the right about cognitive fitness.

The Republicans try to frame normal old-man mistakes as cognitive decline, while ignoring that Trump is literally losing his words, forgetting what he's saying in the middle of sentences, can't remember who his opponent is, nor what his wife's name. Dementia Don's descent into dementia deepens daily.

Over the course of 90+ minutes, “sleepy Joe” delivered a high-energy ass-whipping on the GQP.

So much for the too-old BS.

DON the Con couldn’t make it through 1/4 of that speech without meandering off into a talk about a made up story about himself.

13 ( +26 / -13 )

He was coughing more and more as the speech went on, into his right hand. He also began mangling and mispronouncing words increasingly, especially loaded phrases. Waiting for the transcript but there was one notable phrase with the word "career", and he bottled it. Far from an isolated case.

His motorcade from the WH to the Capitol building was blocked by large, angry Gaza protestors, behind a massive sign that said "Biden's legacy is Genocide". He was forced to take an alternate route to avoid the wrath of protestors.

Tlaib and Bush remained sitting during the Gaza part and held up signs that read: “Lasting ceasefire now.” Not sure whether they ever stood up.

Inside a heckler yelled out “Remember Abbey Gate! United States Marines.” from the gallery in reference to Abbey Gate, outside Kabul’s airport, where 13 US service members were killed during the withdrawal from Afghanistan two years ago. He was ejected by security.

Notice in Biden’s opening comments in the State of the Union for America….he talks about warmongering in Ukraine LOL

-22 ( +9 / -31 )

Well, nothing new, Republicans bad, pulling all kind of crazy disputable numbers and facts out of his rear, didn’t talk about the border (shocked, not really) not sure what the yelling was about, not impressing anyone, Trump this, MAGA that…yawn, boring to the max, but I will give him props, he held up, at least until the end, but he pulled it off.

-21 ( +11 / -32 )

I still think Biden shouldn’t run but he sounded more coherent than Trump does these days.

I saw a clip of Trump collapsing into a slobbering mess when talking about Saudi Arabia or something.

Sounded like he’d had a medical episode - scary.

13 ( +24 / -11 )

Biden's delivery was almost faultless. I was impressed.

12 ( +23 / -11 )

Powerful speech. Put the GQP on the back foot.

Loved these lines:

"A future based on the core values that have defined America. 

Honesty. Decency. Dignity. Equality. 

To respect everyone. To give everyone a fair shot. To give hate no safe harbor.  

Now some other people my age see a different story.  

An American story of resentment, revenge, and retribution."

Representative Troy Nehls, a Republican, wore a shirt with Trump's face and the words "Never surrender" on it.

Classy. Remember, this is the clever guy who admitted that killing the immigration bill was purely to help Donald Trump.

3 ( +22 / -19 )

Joe may be old and he might not be as big of a loudmouth as Trump, but that was one helluva speech.

Bravo!

14 ( +24 / -10 )

he talks about warmongering in Ukraine LOL

Yes, "warmongering" is when you supply weapons to a country to defend itself against a foreign invasion. Good point, great point. All the "smartest" people are making the same point.

15 ( +26 / -11 )

didn’t talk about the border

Yes, he did.

pulling all kind of crazy disputable numbers and facts out of his rear

Like what?

boring to the max

Did you watch it? I doubt it.

6 ( +25 / -19 )

Loved how he mocked the Republicans especially about them not wanting another $2 trillion tax break.

15 ( +24 / -9 )

didn’t talk about the border

He talked about it for more than five minutes, pointing out the MAGA blocking of the bipartisan border bill.

8 ( +26 / -18 )

Powerful speech.

With or without the BOSE?

Put the GQP on the back foot.

Hardly. lol

"A future based on the core values that have defined America. 

Honesty. Decency. Dignity. Equality. 

Now you know he didn’t write that.

To respect everyone. To give everyone a fair shot. To give hate no safe harbor.  

To million of illegals? Why?

Now some other people my age see a different story.  

An American story of resentment, revenge, and retribution."

Not sure what all that stuff meant.

Classy. Remember, this is the clever guy who admitted that killing the immigration bill was purely to help Donald Trump.

Thank God.

U.S. President Joe Biden assailed former President Donald Trump for kowtowing to Russia, failing to care about COVID-19 and papering over the Jan 6 Capitol assault on Thursday in a State of the Union speech making his case for re-election in 2024.

BINGO! You hit three-for-three there Joe...

Biden emphasized his support of abortion rights and pledged to make them the law of the land if Americans voted in enough Democratic lawmakers to do so.

The primary reason Team Red will lose in Nov - not only Dem and Independent women, but suburban Repub women voters are repulsed by the party's assault on their freedom over their own bodies...

"Joe Biden is on the run from his record ... to escape accountability for the horrific devastation he and his party have created," Trump posted before the speech on his Truth Social platform.

It's a little more than ironic when Dementia-Don talks "run from" when he ran way from his best bud Rudy Giuliani stiffing him in $2 million in legal fees...

https://politicalwire.com/2024/02/08/trump-stiffed-giuliani-for-2-million/

And once again we were treated to the 2nd-grader antics of the Kook Caucus, even after their "teacher" told them to act like adults...a level of maturity and dignity they clearly can't achieve...

He talked about it for more than five minutes, pointing out the MAGA blocking of the bipartisan border bill.

Yeah, but besides that insignificant statement, he didn't talk about the border or sealing it or mention or even talked about Laken Riley and how he screwed up and could have prevented this tragedy. Not a word.

-22 ( +5 / -27 )

The charge of the MAGA cry babies.

8 ( +20 / -12 )

Trump couldn’t even live -lie on his glitching fake Twitter.

10 ( +18 / -8 )

Yeah, but besides that insignificant statement, he didn't talk about the border or sealing it

He went one step further - he challenged Trump to support him in shutting the border.

Trump's been called out, we'll see how your boy responds.

3 ( +19 / -16 )

Correction: the speech was 1 hour and a bit long (not 90 minutes).

-16 ( +3 / -19 )

or even talked about Laken Riley

He talked about her, by name, for more than 90 seconds.

9 ( +25 / -16 )

This woman doing the Republican retort sounds like an angry podcaster.

6 ( +19 / -13 )

This woman's speech would be more powerful if she didn't sound like such a whiner in it. 

Ahh, I see, American sovereignty is just a small thing, I see.

while the Democrats can only lead.

Yes, we see, California, NY, Detroit, Philly, DC.

Hey, they can have it.

U.S. President Joe Biden assailed former President Donald Trump for kowtowing to Russia, failing to care about COVID-19 and papering over the Jan 6 Capitol assault on Thursday in a State of the Union speech making his case for re-election in 2024.

He needs to be forceful here. trump is a scuzzy traitor, a boot licker for Putin who put America into its nadir of history (and culture). Dictatorship is not the answer. Note that Joe refers to trump as 'my predecessor'.

Before any Republican remarks about Joe's age, 40 years ago it was Ronald Reagan who was the oldest POTUS. He went on to make history by starting dialog with the USSR to resolve the Cold War peacefully. He also had the Lebanon war issue and he showed early stages of Alzheimer's (which didn't have a name yet). But he made history and progress during his 2nd term so they'd better shaddup about Joe being 'too old'.

Joe is 81 and still has some vitality in him. Trump may be 77 in age (on paper) but he has yet to reach the mental age of 7.

Trump, meanwhile, sent a steady stream of messages blasting Biden on his Truth Social platform. "He looks so angry when he’s talking, which is a trait of people who know they are 'losing it,'" Trump wrote. "The anger and shouting is not helpful to bringing our Country back together!"

Look at that screaming sassybrat Mussolini. That's all he knows how to do. Why the hell does anybody even listen to such a juvenile jerk like him? Ever see 'Triumph Of the Will' which promoted Hitler? This loudmouth pornographic pukeboy makes me SICK and he needs to shaddup NOW! Even Hitler wasn't a Caligula or a sexual deviant like he is.

I'm glad at least that Joe is nailing it on trumpTraitorTurd. He's showing everyone that he's a man and not a mouse (and that means the same when it comes to those Houthi hooligan pirates). Unlike his POTUS boss Barack, who always was a Mr. Nice Guy (most of the time), he has to show that he fights for freedom and democracy and is a lackey for no one.

Good going, Joe!

In typical Biden fashion he deflected the blame for Laken Riley.

-17 ( +4 / -21 )

Ok, so he skipped over it, not surprised, thank God her parents weren't there to endure more of this guy's insults, he is definitely responsible for this woman's demise.

MAGA Republican Stooge: Biden retreated on the world stage!!! We need to be strong by, uh, defunding Ukraine, yeah, that it!!!

Whoa, a list of places. Strong argument bruh, you really showed me!

Here is the prepared remarks.

Warmongering is not in it, so he obviously went off script. Can someone please tell me the approximate minute into the speech he said that. I don't want to watch him more than necessary.

He's not wrong that not destroying America's credibility is the number one priority.

Heh, yes, he only shouted for an hour, with no content. I'm sure they'll tell you that on Fox (Fox lies you know).

Meanwhile, the independents, and Never Trumpers will hear the content of what he said. And they're the ones that matter. MAGA, as a small minority of voters, can be ignore in favor of everyone else.

No traitor and definitely not a Putin stooge, remember, Vlad said, he preferred Biden in office, laughing away

*who put America into its nadir of history (and culture). Dictatorship is not the answer. Note that Joe refers to trump as 'my predecessor'. *

Trump will do so as well soon enough.

Before any Republican remarks about Joe's age, 40 years ago it was Ronald Reagan who was the oldest POTUS. He went on to make history by starting dialog with the USSR to resolve the Cold War peacefully.

Yes, but Reagan is not Joe and Reagan was the embodiment of patriotism. Biden is nowhere near close to the Gimp.

Joe is 81 and still has some vitality in him.

Where?

Trump may be 77 in age (on paper) but he has yet to reach the mental age of 7. 

But he can talk, he challenged Biden to a debate and to even a cognitive test. Biden refused, doesn't look good, and doesn't instill confidence.

Look at that screaming sassybrat Mussolini.

Dude, where do you get this stuff from?! Trump is right, whispering into the TV and screaming is not helping your argument.

That's all he knows how to do. Why the hell does anybody even listen to such a juvenile jerk like him?

74 million and growing, because they see something that the establishment does as well and that's a threat to their reign.

Ever see 'Triumph Of the Will' which promoted Hitler? This loudmouth pornographic pukeboy makes me SICK and he needs to shaddup NOW! Even Hitler wasn't a Caligula or a sexual deviant like he is. 

No, he shouldn't shut up, he's an American and he should say whatever he wants and however he wants. The guy never promoted Hitler, it was the left that made the idiotic correlation, which makes absolutely zero sense. Especially if you know what Hitler did.

I'm glad at least that Joe is nailing it on trumpTraitorTurd.

How??????

He's showing everyone that he's a man and not a mouse (and that means the same when it comes to those Houthi hooligan pirates). Unlike his POTUS boss Barack, who always was a Mr. Nice Guy (most of the time), he has to show that he fights for freedom and democracy and is a lackey for no one.

Not sure what all that was that you said, but it's clear, Biden is struggling and his hands were shaking and that's a bad sign. Doubt he can do 4 more years.

-19 ( +2 / -21 )

yeah do that. Then be shocked by the election results again.

Heh, because Trump has done so much to unify the people after banning abortion, banning IVF, "engaging in insurrection", and heading the most incompetent congress ever, right?

Someone is going to be really surprised and try to overthrow the government when they don't like how the people voted, again, this November.

6 ( +15 / -9 )

yeah do that. Then be shocked by the election results again.

lol Like when Biden beat Trump? It's going to happen again.

11 ( +15 / -4 )

Republicans sat down for standing up to Putin, rebuilding America, and probably for supporting the troops.

Yeah, the left can say that all day long, don't like Putin, don't support him and definitely don't support this....I mean, the President?

-21 ( +1 / -22 )

If I were MAGA, I'd be nervous. a LOT of never Trumpers and independents saw a very competent, policy-rich Democratic party, contrasted with the disaster that is the Republican congress.

I saw a clip of Trump collapsing into a slobbering mess when talking about Saudi Arabia or something.

He has had that for a very long time. It's called 'narcissism', 'narrow mindedness', 'ego', 'concrete skull', 'stupidity', 'lobotomy-at-birth', 'robot-ness', 'evil', 'delusions of godhood', 'unsociability', 'juvenility', 'gross immaturity', 'total lack of class and diplomacy', 'ill-manneredness', 'EVIL' and other characteristics.

All he does is scream and promote hatred and violence towards others. He's an antichrist, terrorist, fascist, traitor, turncoat and is not a US citizen. And as such he has absolutely no right to say anything at all, nothing whatsoever. The sooner he gets convicted for all his crimes and is punished the better for all of us. He already has been convicted for rape. Why would any self-respecting individual support, endorse or have anything to do with such a piece of garbage like him?

Yeah when he “beat” Trump last time with COVID voting rules from the basement. Had no record and no policies to be reviewed.

Wait, you guys tried to paint him as being responsible for all Obama's policies when Biden was VP. Did you forget about that? Or just hide it so you could try a new talking point above?

I'm trying to figure out which anger you're trying to manufacture this time.

1 ( +11 / -10 )

Had no record and no policies to be reviewed.

There might be some truth in this, but it's also equally true Trump will be convicted by the election.

not happening this time. Your boy is out. So enjoy the nut swinging while you can.

Such big talk from the supporter of a crook who never managed to win the popular vote. Hey, do you think he'll win the popular vote this time?

You show you don't support Putin by unblocking the 1% of the federal budget that would give Putin a black eye. Supporting Ukraine.

11 ( +13 / -2 )

Wow, the contrast couldn't be more larger or telling...

Biden confidently addressing Congress, making his points succinctly, and showing he is clearly younger than his age...

Then you have Trump confusing his wife and a car, slurring his words, ranting about "immigrants speaking in unknown languages", and for the ninth time saying he's running against "Obama"...

Anyone who is not a high school drop-out knows who they're voting for now...

He has had that for a very long time. It's called 'narcissism', 'narrow mindedness', 'ego', 'concrete skull', 'stupidity', 'lobotomy-at-birth', 'robot-ness', 'evil', 'delusions of godhood', 'unsociability', 'juvenility', 'gross immaturity', 'total lack of class and diplomacy', 'ill-manneredness', 'EVIL' and other characteristics. 

So in other words you mean, he's defiant. Well, that is a good trait to have.

All he does is scream

That would be Biden

and promote hatred and violence towards others.

"If you don't vote for me you ain't black?" No hatred there, right?

He's an antichrist, terrorist, fascist, traitor, turncoat and is not a US citizen.

No traitor, patriot all the way, that's why he's an American isolationist. Biden on the other hand....

And as such he has absolutely no right to say anything at all, nothing whatsoever.

Sorry, as an American citizen he can say whatever the heck he wants.

The sooner he gets convicted for all his crimes and is punished the better for all of us.

The sooner he retakes the WH the better it is for the nation.

He already has been convicted for rape. Why would any self-respecting individual support, endorse or have anything to do with such a piece of garbage like him?

74 million and counting, the Dems are helping him and they don't even know it.

-18 ( +1 / -19 )

It will be interesting to see how the super PACs spend millions to create clips for social media from this speech.

Facts FirstThis needs context. 

The unemployment rate did hit a five-decade low during two months of early 2023, 3.4%, and it has since remained close to that level — but the latest available unemployment rate, 3.7% for January, is higher than the rate was during nine months under President Donald Trump in 2019 and pre-pandemic 2020.

-13 ( +1 / -14 )

Another lie, and a gaffe:

He said, “Remember in 2020, 55 of the biggest companies in America made $40 billion and paid zero in federal income taxes. Zero. Not anymore. Thanks to the law I wrote and we signed, big companies have to pay a minimum of 15%.” 

Facts FirstBiden’s “not anymore” claim is false, an exaggeration. While his 15% corporate minimum tax will reduce the number of big companies that don’t pay any federal taxes, it’s not true that “not anymore” will any big company – such as the ones on the list of 55 companies Biden mentioned – ever do so. 

illegal? Bad Joe, bad.

Shortly after Biden used the term “illegal” during the State of the Union address, in the context of Laken Riley’s alleged killer, Democratic Rep. Delia Ramirez posted on X: “No human being is illegal.”

-13 ( +2 / -15 )

1 in 7 Republicans say the will not vote for the Insurrectionist in Chief. 20-45% of GQP primary voters said “Not Trump.” He is an adjudicated rapist who took away abortion rights and has never won the popular vote.

Shortly after Biden used the term “illegal” during the State of the Union address, in the context of Laken Riley’s alleged killer, Democratic Rep. Delia Ramirez posted on X: “No human being is illegal.”

That's definitely a far-left opinion. Biden is clearly appealing to the massive center of the country, ignoring the extremist MAGA and leftist fringes. He can safely do so, MAGA are a tiny irrelevant minority, and who are the extreme leftists going to vote for, Trump?

And then he wrapped it up by lying about the number of COVID deaths, claiming Trump was responsible for 1 million when Joe actually was in office for 600,000 of those.

-15 ( +2 / -17 )

National polls show a slight Trump lead but polls that actually follow how the election is conducted show Trump winning comfortably in the swing states.

Remember, the overwhelming number of voters are NOT in touch with politics, are not informed on the issues, and have not decided their vote. And a LOT of those people saw the SotU tonight.

Facts First: Biden’s figure needs context. Many lives were lost to Covid-19 during the Trump administration, but the US didn’t reach its millionth death until May 2022 when Biden was in office. 

While there were a significant number of lives lost to Covid during the Trump administration, on President Donald Trump’s last full day in office the US death count reached at least 400,000, according to Johns Hopkins University

And then he wrapped it up by lying about the number of COVID deaths, claiming Trump was responsible for 1 million when Joe actually was in office for 600,000 of those.

90% of which would have been avoided if Trump had followed basic public health guidelines as recommended by his own advisers.

But he was too stupid and too selfish and the virus spread beyond the ability to control and became a pandemic.

That’s on Trump. He had one major crisis in his “administration” and he failed as miserably as he has failed in every other facet of his miserable existence.

And 1 million Americans died because of his incompetence and self-centered decision making.

Uh oh Nancy mad:

Impressed by the weakness of the MAGA responses to this SOTU. Biden gave quite a comprehensive left of center policy agenda.

But since all they have is the alt-right MAGAosphere "Biden is senile and can't string two sentences together" and no substantial policies, especially on the economy, they seem dumbfounded.

Let's see if Biden can carry through with the promises. He did express them though.

10 ( +12 / -2 )

Katie Britt gave the Republican Response saying the American Dream under the incumbent has 'become a nightmare'. She called out Biden's mistruths, especially on the border (pointing out he dismantled a strong border and stopped wall construction thereby creating the current catastrophe) to the inflation economy and the cost-of-living crisis he conjured.

She was particularly outraged Biden refused to accept the blame for Laken Riley. She called him a hypocrite for banning TikTok for government employees but making one for his own campaign. She labelled him a "dithering and diminished leader".

"President Biden’s border crisis is a disgrace. It’s despicable. And it’s almost entirely preventable.”

As a veteran who has handled security issues and has seen what what most Americans never see, I am violently SICK AND TIRED of all this Orwellian screaming crap about an 'invasion' that is not real. The Coasties handle most of the illegal immigrants and drug runners. Of course if you saw 'Cocaine Bear' you'd know that some of the coke comes by air, either private planes or by 'mules'. And now robot submarines are doing the job.

There already is a strong barrier at the border that is tough to scale. Has been for 100 years. And even if somebody does, being a stranger in a strange land with rough unforgiving dry desert terrain is a tough trip, if you survive it.

trumpTurd kidnapped untold thousands of ethnic children and put them into concentration camps where they were overcrowded, beaten, starved, raped, sterilized. Where was the outcry in America? Have we learned anything at all? This nation is not as 'pro-life' as it pretends to be. The 'Love your neighbor' and 'You Shall Not Kill' and 'You Shall Not Bear False Witness' and others mean nothing to the MAGAts.

I am extremely sick and tired of all this hateful bigoted 'invasion' and 'border crisis' BS. Me and other military veterans know it's a lie. Anybody who pushes or talks this Hitleresque crap is nothing but a moronic ignorant klutz and I don't have time for such nonsense!

It is real being a Vet doesn’t change that fact

The Coasties handle most of the illegal immigrants and drug runners.

I will take the words of the border patrol agents over any WH pencil pusher Whie shirt that’s never been there.

There already is a strong barrier at the border that is tough to scale.

And they still scale it.

Has been for 100 years. And even if somebody does, being a stranger in a strange land with rough unforgiving dry desert terrain is a tough trip, if you survive it. 

And yet, 24,000 Chinese nationals still come through the border Biden could issue an executive order and stop all this, but he won’t. That helps Trump.

trumpTurd kidnapped untold thousands of ethnic children and put them into concentration camps where they were overcrowded, beaten, starved, raped, sterilized. Where was the outcry in America? Have we learned anything at all? This nation is not as 'pro-life' as it pretends to be.

Sad, but all the more reason to not make the journey and go into a sovereign country illegally. We could never do that in Mexico or Japan, We shouldn’t tolerate it. Come in and do it legally.

The 'Love your neighbor' and 'You Shall Not Kill' and 'You Shall Not Bear False Witness' and others mean nothing to the MAGAts. 

No, but once this administration is gone, we can go back to sensible immigration and finish the wall. Come in legally and you can get all the love you want.

I am extremely sick and tired of all this hateful bigoted 'invasion' and 'border crisis' BS. Me and other military veterans know it's a lie.

The Dems bring up the race issue, that’s the only issue they can run on really, and Trump.

"in his last State of the Union address before the election, Biden, a Democrat, charged Trump, his Republican challenger in the Nov. 5 election, with burying the truth about the Jan 6, 2021, Capitol assault, bowing to Russian President Vladimir Putin and torpedoing a bill to tighten restrictions at the U.S. border with Mexico."

Joe is a career politician and a liar, on his first term he run on bringing the nation together, which was a lie then and now. He revised all Trumps border policies, then claim victim hood. This is what's wrong with old career politicians they lie when caught they double up and lie more. See you in Nov 5th Joe!
