Actually listening to Obama for more than a second or two causes me to become nauseous, but I wouldn't mind reading the text for a laugh or two.

Has the text been posted yet?

Chad Henderson, the first FAKE ObamaCare enrollee, will be at the State Of The Coup address tonight as a guest of Congressman Steve Stockman. Below is a photo posted on Twitter which supposedly shows that Henderson has become a real ObamaCare enrollee. However, look carefully at the pic. It only shows that he has received a premium bill, not PAID for it. Therefore it seems that his status remains that of a FAKE ObamaCare enrollee.

But will the "news" media tell us if it does?

The official response from Republicans will come from Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers

The Tea Party response will come from Mike Lee.

And Rand Paul will give his own response.

Tea Party Express - Restore Libery, Honor The Constitution

Senator Mike Lee to deliver Tea Party response to President Obama's State of the Union


We have some great news to share with you! 

Tea Party Express, the nation's largest Tea Party political action committee, will host the official Tea Party response to President Obama's State of the Union Address directly following the Republican response. Senator Mike Lee will deliver the Tea Party response at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. and will focus on issues that are important and unique to you and me.



Senator Mike Lee to deliver the official Tea Party response to the State of the Union

What: Official Tea Party response to the State of the Union
Date: Tuesday January 28th, 2014
Time: Directly following the Republican response
Speaker: Senator Mike Lee (UT)
Where:
The Tea Party response will be streaming live at www.TeaPartyExpress.org.

For the Tea Party movement, 2014 is not just about taking back the Senate, but it is also about putting forward conservative ideas that will allow for America to prosper. Senator Mike Lee has been both a Tea Party hero for supporters across the nation, and a conservative leader in the Upper Chamber. He has introduced tangible policy solutions to some of America's biggest problems. We are honored to have Senator Lee deliver Tea Party Express' 4th annual Tea Party Response to the State of the Union.

Since the President has been re-elected, the debt has continued to skyrocket and unemployment has ticked up, but he has offered no solutions and has shown no leadership. In contrast, Senator Mike Lee has put forth solutions that would spur economic growth and rein in Washington's out-of-control spending. We are excited that Senator Lee, a conservative leader and strong voice for the Tea Party movement, will be offering our perspective on the state of the union.


Tea Party Express hosted the first ever Tea Party State of the Union response in 2011 with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.  Herman Cain and Senator Rand Paul have also delivered our response in years past. 

We promise to you that we will continue to fight to give the Tea Party a strong voice in Washington, D.C.

Some will say it’s the best speech ever and John McCain will agree. They’ve probably got their comments already in hand.

Obama will open the SOTU speech tonight with three lies. “Ladies, gentlemen and fellow Americans”. There are no ladies or gentlemen in Washington DC, only political whores. And the dog eating Kenyan is not a true American.
