Prior to Tuesday night's State of the Union Address from President Obama, The Young Turks Power Panel of Crooks and Liars managing editor, Tina Dupuy, United Republic's Zaid Jilani and comedian and Stephanie Miller Show regular John Fugelsang discuss what progressives would like to hear the President say during his speech.

Much agreement on running against the "do nothing" Congress we've got right now and Tina and John were right. Were Cenk to get his wish and the President would come out swinging in the manner he described here at Republicans, he'd be painted as the angry black man. The Republicans and the Villagers in the media would have a field day with him.
