    So, what’s the point of a State of the Union speech, anyway?

    Given that this presidential address isn’t capable of goosing presidential approval, it should come as no surprise that it’s not a particularly powerful engine of persuasion.

    The truth is, presidential speeches of all stripes lack this swaying power — and Trump has already run up against those limitations in his fight for this pet project.

    I’ll be honest though, I probably haven’t watched one probably since right after the 9/11 attacks. Before that, it was probably when Reagan was President.

    Yes I am the same. Haven’t watched one since Reagan.

    I watched this State of the Union address, with great interest.

    That said, I thought it was the best public speech I’ve seen to date from the President. I thought it was well constructed, stayed on point, and came from the heart–with the state of the union in mind…which is precisely what these things are intended to be. And I thought President Trump hit a home run with it–because he summed up quite nicely exactly how I feel about the many topics he covered.

    Stopped listening to that lying liar lie well before the State of the Union.

    If you would open your eyes and really listen to what he’s trying to do you would be surprised.   Your “liar” commentary just shows how far off track you are.

    I guess Obama wasn’t a liar when he said we could keep our doctors?  Obama Care would lower health care costs.  He knew it was only a stop gap to turning over more of our economy to the government.  Typical Socialist tactic.
