to have this response so there was somebody advocating tea party values. george w., i voted for the guy thinking he would be common sense, why didn't he veto a single spending bill. he didn't even get into the iraq war which was unnecessary. why did he spend every dollar he got his hands on if he was a republican? >> i don't know why he did it. i know that spending and the spending continued since then are causing major problems for our economy. americans are concerned about the economy, about getting back to work and about the deficit. >> who is paying for the prescription drugs bill? i always wondered who would pay for that. i thought it was put on the books. >> i think we are all paying for the prescription drug bill. it is the debt we are racking up and we are sending that debt on to future generations. we are kicking the can down the road instead of taking responsibility ourselves. >> talk to my daughter about that. it's one of her concerns. david, the president gave what i thought was a pretty good speech. it was hard for me until the very end to know where his passion lay, cl

lower the temperature and he talked about sitting next to his friend bob gates, george bush's defense secretary during the capture of usama bin laden. whether he does any of that now will be interesting to watch. . >> bret: charles, you may be happy or not to know that dan pfeiffer, communication director in terms of word cap, this is the president's second shortest state of the union address. the shortest in 2009. i don't know how you feel about that. >> in gratitude.

situation. >> i think for both parties, you know, whether a speaker pelosi dealing with george w. bush or speaker boehner dealing with president obama, you are trapped because you can't be overtly hostile because people back home know you're the host. this is a national appearance, not a political appearance. on the other hand, you can't applaud too much or your own base will beat you up. >> did you have a semi happy face that you went to? >> clinton was a totally different character. clinton was fun. the first time he walked in and he handed me this envelope and i opened it up and it said i resign, william jefferson clinton. he said, oh, no, i wasn't supposed to give you that, give it back to me and that was the opening of the first state of the union i did as speaker of the house. >> let me open it up to both of you, beginning with this please, governor. do you believe the president moved the ball forward for himself and his party tonight? >> first of all, i was writing down the initiatives. other than raising the minimum wage, there is not a single thing on here that republica

we watch the president's cabinet come into this chamber, george, you will see a confident president come in. he is convinced that the american people are with him on the big issues. and he is also convinced that he has a mandate coming out of that election. so, he will be at times confrontational in this speech. compromising, willing to compromise, but only so much with the republicans. the key issue, as you mentioned, is the economy. they gave us some excerpts of the speech early. one that hit me was that he said that the economy, an economy that creates job, good, middle class jobs must be the north star for our efforts, for everything we do. and that will be the message here. this is a divided chamber. john boehner, right over his shoulder, just this morning, told reporters that he doesn't think the president has the guts to make the tough decisions to deal with the deficit. that was an exact quote. "i don't think he has the guts to do it." so, a divided chamber to be sure. >> that's right, jon. he said he didn't think the president had the courage to take on his own team. those

course but that if you were to time out george washington's remarks, just read them and time them out, his remarks would have been four minutes and seven minutes respectively. father of our country. the whole speech, four minutes, seven minutes. let's say you interrupt with a lot of applause for the father of our country, 10 minutes tops? you sit down and its's over. woodrow wilson one of his first remarks a professor by training. over an hour. didn't have as many applause back then. now more common to have applause. more theatrical events. john kennedy, post-world war ii, among the shorter addresses, 45 to 47 minutes. more applause interruptions, then the president astutely aware getting an address under an hour so americans could have it wrapped up and finished at home. remember it was lyndon johnson who brought all of this into prime time in 1965 and true to form in that first address spoke to close an hour and 15 minutes. take full advantage of that. he did him very little good. a year later his popularity averaging 20% because of the vietnam war was on. he was just years away fro

, unfiltered by the d.c. press, discussions of what clinton tried to do with education, what george w. bush tried to do with social security. will there be a hallmark measure like that tonight? >> the president has practically speaking a two-year window before the attention fully turns to the 2016 presidential race. this is probably the peak of his ability to move the country, move republicans in congress. the american people are behind him. his approval ratings are high. it depends on what go big means. if it means a set of initiatives he's proposing to try to build middle class jobs, build middle class incomes, that's big. if immigration reform comprehensively means going big, that's likely to happen. the gun debate is one where he's not likely to get what he's looking for. but eamon, you're surrounded by lawmakers as they're filing into the capitol. what are you seeing? >> reporter: that's right, john. this is sort of the spin room where members of congress will come after the speech to give their reaction. i can tell you a lot of members have been here throughout the evening givin
