Republicans Considering Not Inviting Obama To Give State Of The Union Address
In their continuing efforts to show how much they want to work with the president, the Republican Congress is considering not inviting the president to give his annual State of the Union speech. They considered this in 1999 after impeaching him, but then rejected the idea of not inviting President Clinton.
Politico reported yesterday that congressional Republicans are weighing a variety of tactics to “address” their disgust over Obama’s immigration policy, and “GOP aides and lawmakers” are considering the idea of “refusing to invite the president to give his State of the Union address.”
Late last week, Breitbart News also ran a piece of its own on the subject: “Congress should indicate to President Obama that his presence is not welcome on Capitol Hill as long as his ‘executive amnesty’ remains in place. The gesture would, no doubt, be perceived as rude, but it is appropriate.”[su_csky_ad]
