Tuesday/ the State of the Union address

‘Let’s see if your numbers add up’ .. ‘but let’s not have another 40 something votes’ on the health care law, was the challenge from the President to the Republicans in the State of the Union speech tonight.   And the Huffington Post reported that the award for the first GOP congressman to call Pres. Obama a ‘socialistic dictator’ goes to Rep. Randy Weber (R-Texas).  (Who would do well to stop using big words he does not know the meaning of). The longest ovation went to war hero, the Army Sergeant Cory Remsburg.  Pres. Obama met him at Omaha Beach in France, at a D-Day commemoration.   Cory was later injured by a roadside bomb during his 10th deployment (in the Iraq war, I think), in a coma for three months and emerged partially paralyzed.
