      I really wish they wouldn’t post news like this until more information is obtained.
      Here is clearly one of those “Alerts” “Breaking News” that should not be – based on the subsequent information that is released – like the boats had engine trouble and that the boats will be released by tomorrow

      The boats had mechanical problems and were held by the Iranians because they ended up in the territory. Iran has reassured the US that the boats will be released by tomorrow morning.

    Funny because I have very low expectations of him and his cabal in Congress.

      NCLB, Paul Ryan is like a flea in the grass commenting on the lion. He is completely out of his league and his opinions and expectations aren’t worth spit.

      He thinks he has to say something, because he thinks he is the speaker, and the speaker has to speak, and yaddayaddayadda… he is lower than the amoeba on the flea on the lion. A parasite, nothing more. and greedy.

      EDDIE MUNSTER THINKS HE IS IN HIDING AND NOONE KNOWS HIS EVIL PLANS AGAINST OUR PRESIDENT…THE GUY IS A TRANSPARENT TROLL….I THINK THE PRESIDENT IS GOING TO GIVE HIM A PRESENT BY THE END OF HIS TERM!

      Not sure what he means.. I

      Iran is having elections , I think in September, and last night on PBS it was said that Rouhani’s Reform supporters are expected to have a majority in their Congress after the election.

    MSNBC is all about how this seizure by Iran will undermine PBO’s message. What timing! Pray it is worked out prior to the SOTU address. The whole message can be lost due to the fear amping. This would elevate the GOP argument. That to me is the scary part.

      MSNBC ‘s Viewer comments mailbox is full. They are really getting lost. Brian Williams is a waste of money. He has no clue what he is doing or saying when on LIVE. He can only read what is in a prompter.

      I’m more afraid for the joke that MSNBC has become. I’m ashamed to say that I once used to watch that network religiously….but that was in the distant past….like in 2008-09.

      MSNBC is now the Donald Trump network, AKA a wannabe FOX NEWS while failing miserably.

      This is wishful thinking on MSNBC’s part, OG. They desperately want the President to fail, which shows how low they’ve gotten and how they are so not worth anyone’s time.

      I’ll be standing up and cheering my President for his last SOTU. Hard to believe that 8 years have whizzed by since he became President. He’s still gorgeous and hasn’t lost his swag and common sense. He’s done so much good for the American people and the world despite facing hostile and unrelenting opposition.
      The likes of him will not come our way for a long time.

    Jerry Hall, Mick Jagger’s ex, is engaged to Rupert Murdoch. I’m not even kidding.

    Yup…that’s what happens when you are quick to use an incident (that you know very little about) to attack the President: IT BACKFIRES….

    • January 12, 2016 at 6:06 pm

      as you have suggested hf…i plan to tweet many positive tweets during the SOTU…so i am liking many of the positive tweets i have discovered yesterday and today…so that i can retweet them..smilin

    I forget. Is this one of the weeks/months that Paul Ryan’s “at work” or is it “family time”?

    Ugh. Will try not to look at his mug all during the SOTU.

        Lying Ryan can keep longing for it, up until the time he retires from part-time government service or is retired by Democrats! Ugh.

  22. January 12, 2016 at 5:47 pm

    For the SotU: So I guess CSPAN is probably going to be a safe address for streaming for me since tv channel screaming mostly doesn´t work for me from Germany?

      Why do they want to send other people’s children to war – what a truly horrible person – not to mention the creation of millions and millions of refugees that the world has NO idea how to cope with. Insanity is war mongering Americans.

      Every day I am so thankful for PBO

      Because real journalism exists outside the US. Here we have corporate cable TV lead by Fox News.

      Reporting abroad is based on mature, information oriented professional journalism. Reporting in the US is based on juvenile gossip & fear mongering, lowest common denominator, and manipulation by monied interests.

      Notice the Gov of Michigan claiming the wonders of his car industry – which a GOP President would have allowed to 100% collapse
      Meanwhile – attempting to ignore poisoning children with lead in water – which was done by his administration – all on its own
      pro-life in action

    My mistake to turn to CNN and their “Breaking News” about the U.S. soldiers being held by Iran. I got so darn tired of Wolf.

    Can any one tell my why every news outlet says this the 7th and final SOTU right? He took office 2009 had STOU address then so this would make 8th. count them? 09 (1) 10 (2) 11 (3) 12 (4) 13 (5) 14 (6) 15 (7) 16 (8) he has 8 years in office, did he not do one one year?

    The only thing anyone needs to know about Iran is that two weeks ago they shipped out all of their nuclear material out of their country, and yesterday they started pouring concrete into their nuclear reactors. Today two Navy boast drifted into Iranian waters because they had mechanical failures, and their crews will be released very soon. All the noise you’re hearing now is nothing more than gorilla dust, signifying nothing.

    Just listened to Amy Klobachur on MSNBC and she is talking the same BS about not going far enough and why the people are saying 70% are going in the wrong direction. Shoveled down our throats for 7 yrs. MSM is sick SOB’s.

    I am not ready for this. I know it is selfish but I want President Obama to stay forever. I keep hearing the final SOTU and it breaks my heart. I am not ready to say goodbye
