1/13 Digby: Reviewing President Obama’s Final SOTU

January 13, 2016

Blogger Digby (Heather Parton) explains why she was underwhelmed by President Obama’s final SOTU(12:30). When the Obama Administration finally understood how rabid the Republicans are. How President Obama spoke past Republicans and still offered an olive branch. Can Obama ever shake the bipartisan myth? The palpable conservative disappointment after the Iran/Navy situation was resolved(23:50). Thank God President Obama wasn’t successful in “bringing people together” to cut Social Security. How outside conservative money is drowning the GOP establishment(35:20). No Republican moderates exist. The Koch brothers are more important than the Republican Party establishment. How Obama talks about the military and American power. The Republican Party’s teenage angst and Debbie Wasserman Schultz needs to go!(55:20)

On The Fun Half: Ted Cruz says “embodies New York Values”. Oregon militia men welcome a ISIS supporting  Hitler lover as their new IT guy. Also Oregon militia guys do not want dildos in the mail and your calls and IMs.
