i got excited for a second until i realized that george bush is our president still. i know the crap he said last year never came to even partial fruition and i promised myself i wouldn't watch this year. so are you tired of being lied to or are you actually going to watch it to humor yourself?

i kinda want to watch CSPAN afterwards just to see if there are prank calls.

I selected 'whats that?', although I should have spent my answer on 'no'. I don't know what it is, but to be fair even once you tell me I won't watch it. What with the fact they probably won't show it here, and I don't own a TV.

Anyway, what is it?

I have to watch the speech for my Intro to Sociology class. My professor is a nut case. The State of the Union Address is an annual statement on the progress of previous plans implemented for the country in the previous year and also time to start changing policy for the next year. This year the main point is the new economic stimulus plan.

everyone should put it on MSNBC right now. olbermann's gonna have a nice concise bit about how much the US has been screwed this year. a nice preface to the actual speech.

I have homework, but I guess I'll watch for a couple minutes to count his grammar errors. Hopefully he has something important to say though. As much as I don't like him, he is the freakin president.

So I guess I'm the only American on UG who isn't outraged at Bush.... sad. I suddenly feel very alone here.

I don't have a working TV, otherwise I would.

You can come watch it with me. Although I may throw stale peanuts at you as well.

i might, but i still need to read WEB Du Bois The Souls of Black Folk for tomorrow. that is a bit more important to me right now. i might just turn on the State of the Union and read while half listening to Bush babble on.

i think he might be a little shocked at the theory that black people might just have souls in the first place.

maybe he'd start caring about them if he read it.

We must of posted simultaneously. Yes the Union is the U.S. The entire country.
Our constitution requires the president to provide a report on the "State of the Union" to congress annually. Up until the advent of television it used to be done via a letter. However it has become an opportunity for the current knucklehead in charge to get lots of free airtime. No knock on Bush I haven't been impressed by any of our presidents in my lifetime.

actually no. it was originally done as an oration. jefferson got rid of it though because he said it was too monarchical to deliver a speech like that. however the real reason is that he had a terrible lisp and sounded like a total fag when he talked (i would imagine something like michael cera). instead it was written and read by a clerk to the congress. it was brought back as a speech by the president in 1913 by wilson.

awesome? maybe. masculine? no. and TJ's would've been a lot more lispy than cera's. but i imagine it had that timid, understated quality.

EDIT: buuuuut, there he goes now. they are discussing how he was undecided on what color tie to wear. he chose blue. and some dude just kissed him! i knew it! Bush is gay!

I knew Wilson did a personal address. I think Lincoln did one too.
