Reason State of the Union Wrap Up


let me be clear!

Relive the glory of the State of the Union speech with the Reason staff liveblog replay here.

And to get through the recap, revisit the rules for the drinking game here.

And if that's not enough: Post-speech posts from Peter Suderman, Katherine Mangu-Ward, and Matt Welch.

Or tune into Fox Business, where Nick Gillespie may still be talking with John Stossel.

NEXT: Howard Zinn, R.I.P.

  1. I have a question. I was trying to get my toddler into the bath at the time but, at about the half hour mark, did the president actually cite a window company in some obscure jurisdiction as the beneficiary of the stimulus package? Is he not aware of the broken windows fallacy, or is being too coy by half?

    1. Stossel had a report on a California window company that has been a recipient of much government largess. They get all that government dough because they have a unique product that is much more energy efficient than their competitors.

      Ha ha! Just kidding. They have a VP that is married to a high level Obama official.

      1. You truly had me fooled before that last line.

      2. ‘the Beavers add five student-athletes for the 2009-10 school year. The class is one of the most decorated in program history and is ranked in the top 25 in the nation by several recruiting services.’

        I smell a stimulus conspiracy. But they’ve been licked eleven times already.

  2. Anyone want to point out some of the more outlandish/hilarious promises he made a la Bush’s “Let’s go to Mars! (for no apparent reason)” I’m too lazy to scan the speech or find a summary.

    1. The obvious reason to go to Mars is to explore new homelands after the Corporations destroy earth.

      Don’t they teach you kids anything any more?

  3. “Ach! Everything is ‘crisis this’ and ‘end-of-the-world that! No one opens with a joke! I miss Danny DeVito.”

    1. President Voros: The State of the Union is this: we’re all screwed. Good night!

    2. Obama was elected to lead, not to read.

      Now that I think of it, this could explain most of the first year of his Presidency.

      1. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it.

  4. “I” 96 Times

    “Me” 18 Times

    1. Glad I didn’t watch it as a drinking game or this comment would be from a hospital.

  5. U peeple cleerly didn’t play thedrunkengame jproperShutuo!!!!!!



    1. Save yourself the trouble, just copy one of my many incoherent posts. You clearly are not drunk if you could write that.

      1. Shutupchony!!!!


  6. Don’t blame me, I voted for Kodos

    1. “What, have you done”!

  7. My iPod was more interesting than the speech.

  8. “What!, I need my Proton Cannon to shot this jurk when he get on the porch”

    Question: Did you really vote for Kodos?

  9. I thought the Caps played great, especially Alexander Semin. What a third period! Traffic was so easy thanks to SOTU. Best thing Obama has done for me so far.

  10. According to the news, the evil Republicans sat sullenly, with a big pouty-lip, as the President made a valiant effort to reach out to them.

    1. About he reboot his administration into libertarianism? I guarantee he could stimulate the fuck out of the economy if he did that.
