Post SOTU Quick Hit
















As we move away from the 2015 State of the Union addressed, it is time to look back at a few reactions, graphics, memes and one very apropos quip from a Facebook friend.

Let's start with a short (unusually short) 3:04 minute segment from Rachel Maddow.  Reaction to the speech?


The embed of the segment is 33 seconds shorter, if you prefer.

Of course,you knew I would post the Obama response to classless cheers and applause after his comments about having run his last campaign.
I firmly believe the crafty Obama knew the left side of the chamber would react. While I suspect the reaction was more from guest of members of Congress, in any case conservative sympathizers in the gallery, Obama's response seemed spontaneous, but I suspect it was an anticipated "touche" response.

Ted Cruz flubs his response, and quickly has his Keystone Cop staff remove it from You Tube...Alas, technology leaves an virtually irreversible trail. Huffington Post (Ted Cruz)
"Eh, lemme start over," Cruz said before the video cut to the beginning of his remarks for a second time.

Let's visit with John Boehner for a second.  Well, that was the plan anyway. It seems a Facebook friends relative came-up with the perfect Boehner remedy. Unless you love nose blowing, sniffling and watching to see if "they"(his GOP side of the Chamber) applaud, this is maybe the best way to have watched the State of the Union Address.
My favorite tweet of the night regarding State of Union address from Sarah Walker was this picture!  "This is how my mom is watching The State of the Union #noBoehner " 
Sarah is - Writer for McSweeney's, MTV's Awkward and Sirens on USA.

I plan to explore GOP reaction via a review of the various SOTU responses in the near term.
