State of the Union Open Thread

I can't live-blog the State of the Union Address, as I'm about to head into a meeting at work. But the President is now speaking. Republican Paul Ryan will be giving the Republican response (and some workout tips, I presume). Michelle Bachmann will be giving the response to the response! Ooh.

But in all seriousness, these are damned serious times that demand serious solutions and serious governance. The President will lay out a positive agenda for the American people, and the Republicans must stop playing chicken. And it's time for people on our side of the isle to stop pontificating also and start getting into the nitty gritty details of policy.

This is your thread. Update each other on the address, and discuss it here!
