vienna, did you watch the state of the union last night? if so,,,what did you think?
good. i thought he reiterated the terrorism and Iraqi coalition points well and then there was his warning about taxes not becoming permanent.
in general he was not short of things to be positive about. i think he mentioned his planned support for marriage programmes which he will get support for and i think almost everyone agrees with.
one bit i got to see on tv was a negligible handful of liberals clapping his warning that the key provisions of the patriot act would come to end and needed to be reiterated. his response brought louder cheers from the rest of congress. sound as it needed to be.
"Key provisions of the Patriot Act are set to expire next year. (weak applause.) The terrorist threat will not expire on that schedule. (Applause.) Our law enforcement needs this vital legislation to protect our citizens. You need to renew the Patriot Act. (Applause.) "
