Cassi Creek: I did not watch the State of the Union address last night. Quite honestly, the posturing and rude behavior has become very tiresome and quite depressing. It merely emphasizes the deepening divide between our elected leaders and us.
Obama laid out an ambitious agenda, much of which I can support or at least live with. However, very little of it will ever reach the floor of either the House or the Senate. The demonstration of indifference and rudeness that characterized the GOP’s presence like poorly behaved children was sufficient warning that the obstructionism of the last four years will continue unabated.
I pointedly refuse to watch the “opposition’s” responses. Neither Rubio nor Paul had anything to say that I want to hear.
Obama is required to make this report to Congress annually. The “opposition” has no such obligation or duty. This practice, over the recent past, has become just a political commercial for the GOP. It is time for the media to inform them that they must pay for political advertisements like any other corporation.
I am exceedingly tired of this non-functional government characterized by the GOP trying to reverse the results of any election they lose by any means possible. Time to write some more letters and stir up discontent with the GOP wherever possible
