What will Bush reference in SOTU speech to get "bi-partisan" applause?
With Nancy Pelosi sitting behind him, he is determined to make her stand up and applaud as many times as possible. It's small points like that which are important to a big thinker such as the president.
I suppose it will not take him long to speak about the "sacrifice" that our "brave" troops are giving to our country and in the defense against the "evil terrorists" of the world. So he will attempt to kill two birds with one stone - try to get a standing ovation for the troops and "legitimize" his war on "terrorism" at the same time.

8. I don't know what he can say other than annoucing his resignation
that's going to get him applause.

I'm sure McCain and Lieberman will applaud, but who else?

10. What will really be telling is what kind of response he will get...
...when the Sergeant-At-Arms announces, "Madam Speaker, the President of the United States." Will it be muted, polite or will the minority party try to create a "scream" moment?

14. Grandmas are nice. ( Bush's subtext -- except in the House)
The minimum wage should be raised. (but not as high as the Democrats think, and only if the rich get more tax cuts)

We should fund education for the children. (some day . . . after the defense contractors can't think of anything to spend money on)

We need a health care plan. (as long as the CEOs of drug companies and HMOs can still take their millions out of the pot)

We should support the troops. (to do whatever Bush wants)

19. This is my and Dick's farewell speech. We are resigning as of now?
Edited on Sun Jan-21-07 06:55 PM by Cleita
That should get a standing ovation and even start a small riot of joy.
