Tapper measures the state of Jelly

(CNN) – CNN Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper became the first journalist to tap into the social media app Jelly, asking people to weigh in on President Barack Obama's State of the Union address.

Jelly is a new app from Twitter co-founder Biz Stone that lets users ask questions using pictures.

 

Replies can be drawn right on top of the image (think Perez Hilton).

First, Tapper reached out before the big speech to find out what issues people wanted Obama to touch on.

Jelly Jake's question

Many Jelly users asked for topics that did indeed make Obama's address: 

jelly immigration  jelly gun control2  jelly economy

But others weren't mentioned at all:

jelly benghazi  jelly net neutrality

And some Obama definitely didn't touch upon but it would have been awesome if he did.

jelly hot rods pizza  jelly kendrick lamar  jelly miley cyrus  

After the speech, Tapper asked for immediate reaction:

Jelly Tapper question post-speech

Some of the responses were positive:

jelly tapper response inspiring2  jelly tapper response clear uplifting

Others were less enthusiastic:

jelly tapper response meh2   jelly tapper response blah blah   jelly tapper response empty

One was so negative we had to censor it:

jelly tapper response bs2

And one guy didn't comment on the content, but called for less clapping:

jelly tapper response well applauded

    it was nothing but the same old bs that we have heard a thousand times already... we gotta spend money on this, we gotta spend more money on that, those people aren't paying their fair share, we need to take more of their money so my supporters can get more money, and on and on and on. and we have 3 more years of this nightmare to endure.

    so you're saying it's much like the failed trickle-down, supply-side, max-out-the-Federal-credit-card, free-spending Republican economic policies that caused the massive recession that the same party has done in their power to PREVENT us recovering from? All to make the POTUS look bad??

    "and we have 3 more years of this nightmare to endure."

    If only we could see your faces when you find out you'll be saying "President Clinton" again for 4-8 years.

    Don't forget deregulation. Being wealthy means that a person is virtuous, hardworking and morally superior...a model of American wholesomeness...so we can obviously trust them all to self-regulate. The whole concept of regulation and gov't oversight is just silly and unnecessary because something something Teatrolls copies of Atlas Shrugged have pages that are stuck together.

    obama and obamacare are as toxic to hillary clinton as they are to all democrats. she supported and was a part of this miserbale 8 year failed experiment to see if a totally unqualified and inexperienced person can lead the world's only super power.

    "8 year failed experiment "

    You know, thinking folk are not fooled by your Teatroll code-speak for "letting a black guy run the country was an experiment and we've done everything we could to make sure it failed, so let's not try that again everyone, mmmmkay?"
