Democrat’s State of the Union January 23, 2007

Posted by jojoe in Politico.

Very powerful response to Bush by Jim Webb, the new senator of Virginia (he beat macaca-man).

Here is the link.

Two major messages:

1. The economy may be doing well for the wealthy, but not so well for the middle class and the elected officials need to do something about it.

2. We need to get out of Iraq and engage in more resolute diplomacy.

Interestingly, he quoted two republican presidents who had dealt effectively with similar situations in the past. Teddy Roosevelt with the robber barons and Eisenhower with Korea.

The Democratic House made good on their first 100 hours pledge. Let’s see what the Senate makes of the bills. I am loving the new Dem. control! I heard on NPR yesterday that they are actually debating on plans to reduce greenhouse emissions!!

Here is a link to the bills passed the first 100 hours.

What a refeshing change… from flag burning bills to real bills.
