President Joe Biden's address tonight is not technically a State of the Union address but it’s just as important. Sen. Tim Scott will give the rebuttal. We’ve got it live streaming after the jump.

The reaction of angry Right Wingers to this address has been to ignore the actual statements and to cherry pick their own interpretations of various pieces. Biden never argued for autocracy, as some pundits are pretending today – he argued for democracy. He never argued for communism – he argued for capitalism. He never argued against the American people – he asked Republicans in Congress to behave themselves and work to get something done rather than being obstructionists.
I note that angry Right Wingers on Fox News and elsewhere in the Right Wing Media Bubble are now pretending that somehow the Biden/Harris White House is “attacking America” and that somehow everything rides on the 2022 midterms to save the country. Does this sound familiar? It should. It’s the identical playbook to how they handled the Obama White House, when they insisted in 2009 and 2010 that those midterms were the last chance to save America from Obama and the Democratic Party. And as of January 2011, Sean Hannity was angrily sneering “We’re on the Road to 2012!” where he hoped that Obama would be swept out of office. Then they told everyone that the 2014 midterms were the last chance to stop the Obama White House from destroying the country. Then they told everyone that the 2016 election was the last chance to save the country, which could only be done by electing Pence’s childish spokesman. Then they told everyone that the 2018 midterms were the last chance to stop the Dems before they ruined everything. And of course, they painted 2020 as, what do you know, the last chance to save the country from destruction by the Dems.
I’m honestly waiting for the moment when these guys stop doubling down on the same nonsense and admit that most of the country and the world does not support the agenda of angry Right Wingers.
STUPID Harold Ford is agreeing.
