4:11 am
that was joe barton's, the state of the union address, all 64 minutes over to a joint city of congress, the frame sanctions going off to putin and he's ugly ox, the u. s. economy health care wages, manufacturing, coven, response, guns, the plot of war bits. we thought this address would be dominated by the crime and its effect on the economy. but that speech very much stopped at all stations. there was a lot to take in and equally a lot of us to talk about and so we shall if you're just joining us, that was you as president joe biden, giving his 1st state of the union address. the doubly correspondence defends a month in washington dc. and us analysts with him glue croft
4:12 am
a still with me. steph, and let's start where biden started his speech. and with you, it was a rousing staff that you think he performed when addressing the russian invasion of ukraine very much as the chest thumping commander in chief i didn't actually did the, i think he did very well. it was anticipated that he was thawed with the ukraine, that this sir speech, this state of the union will, at least at a 3rd, and it turns out it was a 3rd of the speech a will circle around what is happening right now in ukraine. but he took it up a notch. it's not just ukraine, and what america duster your crane, even if america, as the president said, cannot sent troops under no circumstances. because that would mean world war 3. a. anything else? 1000000000 in, in, in help in military help in humanitarian help in, in anything else the united states can do with it's allison,
4:13 am
with his partners. and he actually did them the right thing of peeling for unity. not only internationally, because that speech now is of course, a top chance for the top opportunity for the president to be hurt by a maximum of americans maximum and want to america and the reaching really a lot of the public space in america, but also internationally because there will be a lot of countries in the law leaders around the country having watched this speech for that very reason, what does the president said about the ukraine? and he is mentioned message was clear, but there are 3 fault number one. we stand together with our allies, we stand to get unified, we stand together with ukraine and do what we possibly can, which is not putting american soldiers on the ground, or have nato fight in ukraine against russia. but secondly, a stern warning against russia or for letting me put into not try anything
4:14 am
um, in terms of it is seeking a fight with any nato country that would trigger a full response by the entire treaty by the entire nato, by the americans to so that was very, very clear, very clear a and a i think in that regards in terms of ukraine what he had to say. unity are fighting for freedom and liberty. the typical almost. and i don't mean this joking the luke skywalker versus doth rader here being americans and the allies and europeans are being luke skywalker and bottom if wouldn't of course. all right, but anyway, so good versus evil. that was the main theme and a west which is unified against a, a grain, an aggressor named logging me, put will i want your thoughts to on biden talking tough about america's position on this invasion and his role as president taking on,
4:15 am
put and taking on the ox, the woods, stood out to the ugly ox. we are coming for you. we're coming for you. yeah. the, i mean, it's really important here to, to note that president is not a wartime president, because america is not at war. and there needs to be very careful messaging here that, that biden is trying to balance, because he's communicating to an american public. he's communicating to an international public, his allies, and he's communicating to russia. and we've seen that vladimir putin is very unpredictable right now. that he can see threats as he likes to see them. and there is a, there is a risk of the economic and the financial penalties that the united states with its allies are taking right now against russia. be seen as an act of war as a threat, which means russia could then escalate. and that is something that, that the bite administration is trying to very much manage by talking tough by showing unity, but by not going so far as to make it look like an act of war against russ.
