Transcript of Obama's State of the Union speech
Our Constitution declares that from time to time, the president shall give to Congress information about the state of our union. For 220 years, our leaders have fulfilled this duty.

Transcript: GOP Response to State of the Union

You couldn't focus, you lashed out in all directions, you refused to accept responsibility for your own actions, and you were angry.
