    Only question is, which one of the 4 GOP response’s are we supposed to watch?

    The official GOP response is set to be delivered immediately after by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), the fourth-ranking Republican in the House, who will appeal to women voters on behalf of a party that has often found itself marred by wild musings on abortion and rape.

    Americans will also get a rebuttal from Tea Party Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), who supported a quixotic effort to shut down the government, that will follow the President as well.

    Or they can tune in to a pre-recorded address by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), a possible 2016 contender, which will air on YouTube after Obama finishes speaking.

    Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) announced Monday she will deliver her own State of the Union response in Spanish that will be televised by CNN, Telemundo Univision and other channels.

    They’re like a bunch of newborn pups running around and peeing all over the nice carpet.



    Now 5:

    Ron Paul will join the chorus of conservatives responding to President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday by live tweeting the “REAL State of the Union.”

    He continued by saying, “Let’s not have another 40-something votes to repeal a law that’s already helping millions of Americans,” Obama said.

    It must be stressful being a member of Congress during the State of the Union. Every line demands a critical snap decision – to applaud or not applaud?
