Let's all weep for Speaker of the House John Boehner, who set a record for the least number of days worked by the House of Representatives in 2013, shall we?
According to Rollcall, Boehner told his fellow Republicans the State of the Union address was the 'hardest day of the year.'
This has, as you might imagine, sparked a bitter and swift response on Twitter.

I'm sure there are many more things we could remind him are #HarderThanSOTU. Leave them in the comments or tweet them. I'll make sure to retweet or share them with the Speaker.
