President Biden’s State of the Union speech was trashed by prominent political pundits for its political nature, with some likening it to more of a campaign speech than an overview of the state of the country, FOX News comments.

"Attacking his opponent directly in the first minutes of his speech is unprecedented and perhaps the most partisan start to a State of the Union address in modern memory," AEI Senior Fellow and former speechwriter for President George W. Bush Marc Thiessen wrote on X (banned in Russia) during Biden’s Thursday night speech.

Biden criticized former President Donald Trump several times during his speech.

"This man should never be allowed to take the rostrum of the House and deliver a State of the Union address again," Thiessen posted on X moments later.

"As someone who helped write several SOTUs and who reveres this important presidential institution, I’m stunned by this address," Thiessen said in another post. "It’s an utter disgrace."

"Does anyone remember a State of the Union speech so nakedly partisan as this one?" Georgetown Law Professor Randy Barnett posted on X.

"In which the President repeatedly attacks his predecessor and prospective rival? I can’t."

"This speech is nothing but a cheap and tawdry campaign speech," conservative radio host and author Mark Levin posted on X.

"Biden is just off," former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer posted on X. "His tone, his speed of delivery, his loud punchy way of speaking, is really weird."

"Instead of giving the State of the Union, President Biden is giving a campaign speech," Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., posted on X.

"Biden lasted on foreign policy only briefly," Fox News Chief Political Correspondent Brit Hume posted on X. "Since then to this moment, all campaign stuff, read at high volume. For a man speaking of a great comeback, he doesn't seem very happy. He seems angry."

"After yelling through a speech full of hate, anger, revenge, and retribution, Joe Biden unironically ends his speech with: "Hate, anger, revenge, retribution are the oldest of ideas, but you can't lead America with ancient ideas," Nathan Brand, adviser to GOP Sen. Tim Scott, posted on X.

"All I hear when they say that is, ‘the President hit a grand slam and rendered us incapable of mewing about his birthday again,'" White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates told Fox News Digital.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (right) per tradition, sat next to Vice President Kamala Harris during President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech on Thursday. And that means everyone watching it could see the weird, pained expressions he displayed throughout the night, notes Yahoo. He even refused to stand up to applaud his President.

A majority of adult American citizens will not watch Joe Biden’s State of the Union (SOTU) address, the latest survey from the Economist/YouGov found.

Overall, a majority, 63 percent said they will not watch Biden’s address. Of those, 47 percent said they will not watch it and that they do not want to. The remaining 16 percent said they would like to watch it but they will likely not be able to. Just 37 percent, overall, said yes, they plan to watch it.

Interestingly, most independents, 57 percent, said they will not watch the SOTU address and that they do not want to.

The survey was taken March 3-5, 2024, among 1,556 adult American citizens.

Protesters sat in the middle of the street around a Palestinian flag on the ground of Pennsylvania Ave. as they projected 'Biden's legacy is genocide' on the side of a nearby building.

Several hundred fired-up Pro-Palestinian protesters sat in the street to block President Joe Biden's motorcade between the White House and Capitol for his State of the Union address Thursday.

A massive Palestinian flag was unfurled on the street with demonstrators sitting and standing around it and others held a banner with the message: 'Biden's legacy is genocide.'

The protesters had bullhorns, held 'ceasefire' signs and wore black shirts with messages demanding Biden get tough on Israel.

They were surrounded by law enforcement officials from all sides as police helicopters circled Washington, D.C.
