    Starting off with Ukraine/Russia expected, and Obvs last minute revision to the speech

    Can only imagine the meltdown in right media circles, not interested in finding out for myself

    Applause for the Ukraine ambassador is a good touch also

    Briefly mentioning COVID, and immediately launching into the Putin/Russia invasion.

    Wonder if we'll get any State of Union, or if this will be state of "look over there!"

    I’m sure that will come later, but Obvs should be framing even our problems through the lens of Democracy vs. Authoritarianism. This extended opening is the right response to current events

    Agreed. I did like the initial statement at least mentioning COVID and how this year we're back together.

    Inflation?

    In MY America?

    Not too thrilled that Biden is victory lapping on the economic benefits of COVID restrictions lifting, hard to argue that we are doing the bestest and pivot to...anything negative / pushing for more recovery, single out bad actors. Huhm.

    The spaced out seating due to COVID protocols makes the sitting much more obvious than before when the gallery is packed.

    Considering that the opposition's rebuttal will almost certainly be about mask mandates, has Biden talked about how numbers are down from the crazy surge and how some places are easing mask mandates, as a sort of prebuttal

    Lower your costs, not your wages

    Agreed, but every company will say US-only supply chains and manufacturing = higher costs

    At the least you can raise the cap on the tax deduction for child care. The current limit is ridiculously low.

    Kid in audience is diabetic. Used as an introduction to the talking point that government needs to be able to negotiate drug costs like insulin.

    I wish there were some petty digs at whats-his-name from WV.

    AOC looking fierce in the audience. 100% positive to give Fox crowd a hate-stroke.
