There is NO SUBSTITUTE VENUE for the state of the union address. NONE!

I wanted to see Trump “convene” Congress to FORCE them to listen, but of course it would not be in the House chamber.

Calmer heads prevailed. There is nothing significant about the “date” of the SOTU.

The pageantry, the pomp and circumstance, the imagery, are iconic. A tremendous opportunity for the president to address the country from the pulpit of our government about whatever he chooses for as long as he chooses.

He would lose all this by changing the venue or by mailing it in.

Chock this up, for now, as a “win” for Pelosi, but at what COST? A HIGH price me thinks.

The State of the Union is a constitutionally mandated responsibility of the president. Trump should borrow a tactic from the dems and file a lawsuit with a tame judge. Ask the judge to declare Pelosi’s action unconstitutional.
