Biden just baited Republicans into claiming they won’t cut Social Security and Medicare.
— Steven Beschloss (@StevenBeschloss) February 8, 2023
Brilliant bit of unanimity as Biden forces republicans to pledge to take Social Security and Medicare cuts off the table. Absolutely perfectly handled. #sotu2023

The spectacle of MTG jeering Biden for telling the truth about GOP debt ceiling extortion, followed by Republicans applauding Biden's call for bipartisanship, tells you all you need to know about how weak the GOP position is heading into the debt limit battle.

Two big takeaways – Biden gave as good as he got, he came with the receipts and the fire in the belly! Second, Kevin McCarthy’s caucus does not respect him.

The elephant in the room is that this economy is doing better than most parts of the world and our media simply can’t praise this administration directly because it will kill their narrative.

What this President has done:
Under the previous Administration, 170,000 manufacturing jobs were lost.
Under President Biden, 800,000 manufacturing jobs have been created.
That is the fastest growth in 40 years.

The last time the unemployment rate was this low, we had yet to set foot on the moon. Think about that.
Together, we’re building an America where everyone has a fair shot.
— President Biden (@POTUS) February 6, 2023
The big story here is the MASSIVE failure of the "news" media to inform the public as to what's actually happening. In fact, President Biden just had one of the most productive first two years since LBJ.
— lowkell (@lowkell) February 6, 2023
Under President Biden’s leadership, the unemployment rate is at a historic low at 3.4% and more Americans are working than at any time in history.

The present battle for gender-affirming care is the future battle for birth control. It’s the same politicians, the same organizations, and the same ideology fighting for rigid gender roles. It’s an effort to write your story for you by denying you the means to write it yourself.

President Biden, VP Harris, & Democrats have delivered:
✅Historic job growth
✅Historically low unemployment
✅Historic clean energy investments
✅Huge savings on household costs for families
All while tackling inflation and recovering from a pandemic.

Brilliant move by Biden during SOTU.
He called out Republicans’ unbelievable plan to sunset Medicare and social security (I’ll name him: Rick Scott) and used the heckling to his advantage.
Now Republicans will be liars if they follow through. https://t.co/qL74Pvy9ZR

Here is what Sen. Rick Scott’s “Rescue America” plan says about sunsetting “all” federal legislation every five years. Here’s what Mitch McConnell said in rejecting the proposal – that it would sunset Medicare and Social Security, which is what Biden said tonight. https://t.co/ggHZE2WQXi

I hope TV commentators and newspaper pundits are recognizing how different Biden’s remarks and tone are from the way day-to-day politics are portrayed by the media daily. He is being constructive, leaderly and focused on helping Americans. None of the ugliness. Just governing.

But one thing is true: Meghan (who hasn’t been out in months BTW) is the blueprint!
Lying like a muthaphucka. Senator Voldemort from Florida put out an entire plan to cut both of them. They said that they going to hold the debt ceiling hostage over them.
