Watch party in Opa Locka

They had a candidates’ forum for those vying for seats in the Florida legislature, then sat down to watch President Obama deliver the State of the Union speech.

Miami-Dade County Democrats watching President Obama

Tonight we saw Obama there with Boehner behind him like an unsolved problem, and Boehner’s face was like that of a victim of torture while Obama rose above him with homey jibes and forced him to applaud almost everything but health care.
The president now has the Republicans in a corner of certain responsibility for everything bad that happens or almost happens, and he and the Democrats can claim responsibility (gently, of course) for leading us to the good results, even if they are only a few.
We may have to suffer for two more years of not enough stimulus and too much Wall Street, and this is what we earned by electing Obama two years ago. We have to suck it up and go with the flow. The second term, for starters, must have a strong Democratic Congress, and then we must bend the arc of justice away from Wall Street. We have a lot of work to do, fellow Democrats. And, yes, the message has to rise above. The Republicans will either act stupidly and deserve all the blame, or if they get smart and agree to intelligent legislation that opens the door to jobs and justice, they will all be primaried and thrown out of office by their own side.
You heard it here first.
