9:31pm — “Replace NCLB.” – There we go, Barry. Preach.
9:33pm — Still talking about parents, teachers — “Time we treated the people who educate our children w/ the same level of respect” — nation builders. BOOM. Yes, ahhh I love Obama. “Want to reward good teachers and stop making excuses for bad ones.” I’m loving this speech.
9:35pm — Biden just smiled at his girl when Barry started talking about community colleges. So cute.
9:36pm — On undocumented workers: “They had nothing to do w/ the actions of their parents. Every day, fear of deportation.” – He went there. Well done.

9:37pm — I miss Ted Kennedy. A lot.

9:39pm — OMG LETS TAKE HIGH SPEED RAIL TO COACHELLA.
9:40pm — I don’t miss seeing Pelosi. She always looks like she’s got 17 sweet tarts in her mouth.

9:42pm — Ron Kirk looks like Sam Jackson who looks like Mr. Magoo
9:43pm — I think Boehner has a Tamagachi in his hand.

9:45pm — I love Obama… admitting his own mistakes. Such a leader.
9:47pm — Boehner is so over it.
9:48pm — “Freeze Spending” got 6 claps. Only immediate family claps.
9:50pm — Airplane analogy was so bad, DL Hughley must have written it.
9:53pm — SCHUMAHHHHHHHH
9:54pm — Haha, Obama said “information age”. Come on, it’s 2011. Time to throw away that AOL 2.0 Floppy Disk.

10:05pm — Sen. Patty Murray like Beeker from the Muppets.
10:07pm — Wow. The military is not feeling DADT. Not a one.
10:08pm — “Starting this year, no American will be forbidden from serving the country they love because of who they love.” – Big statement, Barack.
10:09pm — Ugh, I Love BIDEN. SCRANTON IN DA HOUSE.
10:10pm — You got me Obama… I thought you were about to bite your ’04 speech about “a skinny kid w/ a funny name”… and then you talked about Biden and Boehner. Wow. You got me. You’re my president.
10:12pm — “We Do Big Things” – Obama sounds like DJ Khaled.
10:13pm — Boom. 3 pronged speech.. finished w/ a 3 pronged ending. And a mixed-seated audience. Boom. Wonderful.
