President Obama is giving his State of the Union. Which, in his case, is nothing but a B.S. fest.
Some interesting reactions posted on Twitter during the speech:
"Let’s close loopholes so we stop rewarding companies that keep profits abroad, and reward those that invest in America." - Obama.
"If the Democrats refused to stop rewarding them when they had control, why should anyone expect the GOP to do so?""As Americans, we don’t mind paying our fair share of taxes, as long as everybody else does, too." -Pres. Obama.
"OH YES...fair share....he wants to take your money and give it to someone else.""Obama claims credit for 'a re-energized space program.'"
"We can’t get ourselves to the space station so we have to hitch a ride with the Russians.""Affordable childcare. Great, let's deregulate on state level & allow more lower-skilled immigrants who can do that job."
"In the land of bubble gum and candy canes everything is free."
"And now we are paying for the internet for everyone."
"Paid sick leave...paid maternity leave...paid childcare...and it's all freeeeeeeeeeeee!"
"Paid sick leave...paid maternity leave...paid childcare...and it's all freeeeeeeeeeeee!” U forgot FREE COLLEGE!"
"Yes, let's make it more expensive to hire workers. That will do wonders for low skill employment."
"Student Loan Debt Has Increased From $831.6 Billion In 2009 To $1.312 Trillion In The Third Quarter Of 2014."
""Most of our customers live outside our borders." Great, bring THEM here, too!"
“ And if you don’t write the rules I want I will veto it”
"Where was the infrastructure plan with his wasted stimulus package?"
"Obama admin’s ozone regulation = most expensive EPA rule ever. Could cost families > $1,500/yr"
"The real interesting question for this evening is how much of this Fantasy tale does he believe?"
"Ports, bridges, trains, Internet: Obama appears to support every infrastructure project in the world except the Keystone pipeline."
"Pres Obama is promoting brand-new programs we cannot afford. Already $18 Trillion in debt. Punishing job producers is not the answer"

"I urge congress to stand with me to end cyber attacks & to ensure you do so I instructed the NSA to listen to all your phone calls."
"Pres. Obama changed global warming to climate change as global warming has been scientifically disproven."
"Climate change 1.22 degrees warmer. Yep we are all going to burn up now."
"Is this catastrophe of a President even aware of the existence of the American veteran?"
"When what you have done for 50 years has not worked you should try something else: Obama said before demanding more tax and spending hikes."
"For cryin' out loud. Will someone wake up Justice Ginsburg?"
"Says we've blocked Iran's progress toward a nuke. As Iran announces 2 new nuclear reactors & indicts an American reporter. Amazing."
"Here are all the things I will blame Republicans for not giving you."
"Woah-- POTUS just mentioned leveraging power, yet he just gave up ALL leverage with concessions to the brutal Castro regime."
"Taxing accumulated wealth? Really? A federal government that steals your IRA and raids your bank account? I don’t think so."
"For generations US presidents hoped to export US entrepreneurism to Cuba. Instead President Obama is importing Castro economics into the US."
"So are we all ready to kill a bunch of babies and raise taxes? Anything else I missed? Soaring rhetoric?"
"Two questions Mr President
1 What are you going to do about terrorism
2 How are you going to pay for all the socialist programs"
"I urge all of you that agree with me to work with me, & all those that don't to realize I am just going to use executive order anyway."
"Ten minutes of pleading for a return of bipartisanship followed by an impromptu jab of I won you lost."
"The arrogance and hypocrisy of our president is sad to behold..."
"He won twice. Democrats lost three times."
"FACT: President Obama has let thousands of illegal immigrants with criminal records off the hook."
"He refers to "a nation of laws," which he routinely tosses out the window."
"Left knows when Obama lies, "Andrea Mitchell: Obama Has ‘Credibility Problem’ Claiming Progress Against Islamic State" He lies, people die."
"This end-of-speech lecture is really rich with lies, projection, and shamelessness."
