Obama will deliver yet another boring, adversarial, political speech next Tuesday..a.k.a The State of the Union Address to Congress (though since he's recently told us that he has a phone, and a pen, and doesn't need Congress for jack..maybe he'll boycott it.) John Boehner and Mitch McConnell in consultation with others, will decide who gives the Republican response. So, the question is, who would you like to see respondng to Zero?
Hey, it's Politico, after all. I mean, what did you expect? At least Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Charlie Crist or either of the Koch Bros aren't on the list..
Cruz would be awesome...but that ain't gonna happen. Mitch would love to do it himself..I wonder if he'll try and exert pressure to get himself picked.
On the normally very accurate predictor that Politico is wrong nearly always..it won't be any of the above.
Here's my vote, FWIW: IMHO he'd be perfect..he's conservative, photogenic, and a great speaker..
“You Lie” Wilson would be my choice.
There’s only two on your list that’s worth anything.
Ted Cruz would be my choise. Scott Walker would be good, but we want to keep him here, so let’s not give him too much national exposure, okay?
It will be Paul Ryan - almost won, but really came in second. GOP thinks he has a future, and he is so so amenable to work things out like the budget, amnesty and all the other things Obama wants to cram down our throats.
I expect the GOP response to be a weak-willed, loyal opposition rebuttal. Of course, respectfully as if the POSTUS were actually something or someone to be respected.
Should be: Ted Cruz
Will be: Some worthless RINO
Ronald Reagan video clips.
Cantor?! Christie?! Bush?! Is this a joke? Ted Cruz. That’s it. Mike Lee would be great but nobody knows him.
thomas sowell or mark nlevin (tee hee hee)

Ted Nugent. Just because.;]

I vote to let Netanyahu give the speech.
Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul.
They’re the ones who seem to get the widest focus yet hit as many solid points as possible.
