State Of The Union

President Barack Obama tells Congress and the nation that if gridlock continues he will use his executive orders to get things done. Republicans weren't impressed with it. Of course, there's plenty of Republicans acting like idiots that night.

Apologies to the good readers of Journal de la Reyna, I had to work last night and didn't get the opportunity to listen to the president's State of The Union Address.

I almost wanted to just get an opportunity to sneak off the job and peak out the president's speech.

But alas, I will elaborate over the themes of President Barack Obama's address for his sixth year as the leader of the United States.

The main themes of the president's address is income inequality, women's rights, ending Iranian sanctions, immigration reform, the healthcare law, his executive orders, and climate change.

Unbelievable, there were four Republican responses. Four lawmakers were addressing the nation.

Two Stallmigos and two congresswomen had an opportunity to undermine the president. U.S. Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Florida U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen delivered the most recent Republican response, on January 28, 2014, in English and Spanish, respectively.

Stallmigos Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah do unofficial Republican responses. The Tea Party Express does one with Lee and Paul does his little showboating response.

Of course these two have no legislative accomplishments as of today. They are often mentioned as potential presidential contenders.

House Speaker John Boehner looks like a sour puss. Even though the president tossed him a shout out for being a son of a tavern owner.

Steve Stockman walked out. He of course wanted news attention. He is going for John Cornyn's senate spot. It's possible that Stockman could beat Cornyn. After all we got Stallmigo Ted Cruz.

Trey Radel gets out of Congress. He was forced out after it was revealed he was purchasing cocaine while in office. He sought for treatment after he was found guilty of possession.

Michael Grimm acts a fool in front of New York television reporter.

Willie Robertson, Sean Hannity (aka That Guy Who Helped Obama Win) and Tyrone Woods' dad Charles were guest of the extremely conservative Republican lawmakers.

Obviously it's the talk of the week, what's your take on it?
