    Jump to conclusions much? The two parties obviously recognized the timelines were too aggressive (which is not surprising....). They delayed the launch, which is smart and SAFE. Contrary to whatever spin you want to put on it.

    ""Honestly the speech was ok but only because he stayed on script without the typical trumpisms." All true Boestar, including the reference to Trumpisms, although he did add one, but he does direct & approve the final version of the SOTU regardless and I think we could agree that he's not the type to be forced into positions he's uncomfortable with.
