Obama takes his SOTU goals on the road tomorrow, starting with North Carolina. Atlanta on Thurs, Chicago on Friday
That was a competent, if not particularly exciting, speech. Even the "they deserve a vote" part felt a little flat to me.
At end of #SOTU, CNN without missing a beat switches back to breathless "Dorner is dead" coverage.
"They deserve a vote" resonated mostly by virtue of flatness of everything that came before it. Plus, you know, all that human wreckage.
Emotional finish. 102-yr-old voter, cop shot 12 times. Call for citizens to be "authors of next great chapter in our American story."
.@OrrinHatch got some nice face time with the president on his way out. Got a handshake on the way in
RT @HuntsmanAbby: Meanwhile, Chris Dorner is dead. #breakingnews

Quite a moment to see Gabbie Giffords, unable to clap, clasping her hands and waving them in unison with the applause.
"They deserve a vote" was an update to the classic "up-or-down vote" call from President Bush.
RT @AriFleischer: John Boehner should stand to salute the 102-yr old voter. Mistake to stay seated.
RT @SenSherrodBrown: Tonight’s #SOTU provided an important blueprint to grow our #economy by growing the #middleclass
Analyst on Fox just called Obama's green energy proposals "recycled"
I may be wrong but I think @petegallego just became the first congressman to live tweet from the SOTU in English and Spanish.
Joe Biden, Pat Leahy - same tie. What does it mean?
Obama should totally go to Cap Lounge after this to celebrate

On, CNN @NewtGingrich calls this #SOTU "the most pro-government speech since Lyndon Johnson."
Seeing a lot of disappointment that Obama didn't mention #Keystone during #SOTU sections on #climatechange & #energy

Vague reference to life beginning at conception.

GOP #SOTU @MarcoRubio response in a nutshell: “More government isn’t going to help you get ahead. It’s going to hold you back.”
Obama had approximately 80 applause lines.
#SOTU @MarcoRubio sez gov’t role is limited by Constitution, can’t play its role when it ignores limits; SCOTUS sez no limits were ignored.
Public is fed up w/Standing O's. But, with hyper-partisan atmosphere in Wash., did anyone else think Dems were passive in applause?
RT @newtgingrich: Marco Rubio is doing an excellent job delivering a very powerful and compelling speech
Interesting that this remains a tradition in a post-Fairness Doctrine landscape.
Yep, #Solyndra gets the @MarcoRubio shoutout in #SOTU response, of course.
