fired up, ready to go

On the day of his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama strides from the Oval Office along the Colonnade at the White House in Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 25

As President Obama strolled from the Oval Office to lunch in the residence Tuesday afternoon, he gave his State of the Union speech a modest thumbs-up. “I think it’ll be OK,” he said when asked how his 9 p.m. speech is coming along. “I hope so, anyway.”

The President gave television anchors and other TV reporters an in-person preview of his State of the Union address this afternoon, hosting them for lunch at the White House. The pool reports that seen gathering at the White House were MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, ABC’s Diane Sawyer, NBC’s Brian Williams and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

    I say this with love and admiration in my heart. President Obama is like the energizer bunny “he just keeps going and going and going”. He looks thoughtful and determined in this photos. No matter what they throw in his path he just plows through it. His endless optimism and tireless work ethic are just what we need right now.

    He must have springs in those shoes to keep bouncing along. Energizer Bama he is. Those commentators must be the ones who will be on air during his speech. Now don’t screw it up MSM guys/gal.
