Another beautiful day here in central Maine. The temperature finally made it above zero today but not by much. The high for Augusta was 4 degrees. We did have sunny skies and about an inch of snow throughout the day. I am looking forward to the state of the union address tonight to get the President's view on the past year and the one ahead. I am already pretty sure what he will say but I wait with baited breath to hear the Republican response to the address. If the last two responses are any indication it should be hilarious. I can not wait to see if Paul Ryan (r) from Wisconsin talks about his "Road Map For America" tonight. I have no idea what the Tea Party response by Michele Bachman will be but I am guessing it will be very slanderous towards the President and will contain at least one reference to violence. I hope that you are all planning to watch and stay politically active in the following year.
