State Of The Union!

Final year for President Barack Obama and he vows to do more.

The final State of the Union Address for President Barack Obama had wrapped up and the agenda for the year is set.

Of course, with a Republican majority, will it be possible for the agenda to be accomplished?

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) got his first opportunity to sit in the big kid's chair. As the House Speaker, Ryan is now determined to get the House of Representatives in order. After a continuous year of battles, Ryan is hoping to get the advantage.

Handful of Republican lawmakers, Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito skipped the State of the Union again. 

South Carolina's Nikki Haley, the two term Republican governor delivered the response. 

Let's cut to the chase.

The president laid out a simple agenda. He wants to raise the minimum wage. He wants to enact reasonable gun control measures. He wants to improve on infrastructure. He asks of Congress to approve his use of force against the Islamic State. He appointed Vice President Joe Biden to head up a committee on how to fight cancer. He asked for more tax cuts. He praised Ryan for his leadership. He knocked on Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, Chris Christie and Rand Paul. He said that his biggest regrets was seeing Washington be so freaking divided.

I didn't get to capture every moment on television but I want to be clear that I enjoyed the speech.

Anyway, here's the video of the president and Haley.

No Tea Party Response or other unofficial Republican responses.
