Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, my fellow Americans:
We are fifteen years into this new century. Fifteen years that dawned with terror touching our shores; that unfolded with a new generation fighting two long and costly wars; that saw a vicious recession spread across our nation and the world. It has been, and still is, a hard time for many.
But tonight, we turn the page.
Tonight, after a breakthrough year for America, our economy is growing and creating jobs at the fastest pace since 1999. Our unemployment rate is now lower than it was before the financial crisis. More of our kids are graduating than ever before; more of our people are insured than ever before; we are as free from the grip of foreign oil as we've been in almost 30 years.
Tonight, for the first time since 9/11, our combat mission in Afghanistan is over. Six years ago, nearly 180,000 American troops served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today, fewer than 15,000 remain. And we salute the courage and sacrifice of every man and woman in this 9/11 Generation who has served to keep us safe. We are humbled and grateful for your service.
America, for all that we've endured; for all the grit and hard work required to come back; for all the tasks that lie ahead, know this:
The shadow of crisis has passed, and the State of the Union is strong.

Someone on another thread said that the scriptwriter who was reading Joyce’s “Ulysses” to his infant child and Barry were hot-box chooming six-paper ‘fatties’ while writing this beast. ......
Looks like they were drinking their bong water too!
I will not rest in peace until this man and everyone who supports him are imprisoned for at least 10-year sentences, no less.

Just because you don’t like Obama, it’s no reason to pull the State of the Union transcript ... LOL ...
That's what middle-class economics is the idea that this country does best when everyone gets their fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules. We don't just want everyone to share in America's success we want everyone to contribute to our success.(though admittedly I didn't listen to the whole thing, I heard this as I was walking to the other room and have difficulty imagining a bigger WTF.)
There is not enough eye, ear or brain bleach in the universe....
I know what you mean ...
Reagan shows how its done. Watch the whole thing to see the comparison with obie
The Republican response was terrible...smiles and soft spoken words like some sort of weird commercial for old person medicine. Jeezus the Republicans always find a way to lose.
