True GOP SOTU Response Caught On Tape

What Republicans did during the State of the Union Address is far more revealing than their canned responses afterward.

Jed Lewison's mashup of Republicans' classless response to the president's policy proposals speak far louder than Cathy McMorris-Rodgers did.

They sat on their hands when these statements were made:

  • That it's a good thing that after 12 long years the war in Afghanistan is finally coming to an end
  • That Congress shouldn't shut down government or threaten the full faith and credit of the United States
  • That Congress should pass legislation to put more Americans to work in the tech manufacturing sector
  • That he'll protect natural lands with his executive power
  • That Congress should repeal tax breaks for Big Oil
  • That Congress should restore unemployment insurance that it let expire at the end of the year
  • That women deserve equal pay for equal work
  • That nobody who works full time should have to raise a family in poverty, so Congress should raise the minimum wage to $10.10
  • That Congress shouldn't have another 40+ votes to repeal Obamacare
  • That votes, not money, should drive democracy
  • That he'll work to prevent more tragedies like Sandy Hook

They sat on their hands, just like they have when they bother to show up for work. I hope every last one of them gets fired in November.
