Why the GOP Should Walk Out on Obama

President Obama is expected to eviscerate Republicans during tonight’s State of the Union address tonight. It will be a speech that builds on his second inaugural address last month. As Charles Krauthammer put it during an appearance on FNC’s Special Report with Bret Baier:

In fact, if the inaugural address was this sort of extraordinarily ideological address, I think the State of the Union is going to be extremely aggressive and partisan. Obama is still campaigning. He hasn’t stopped. Part one was to re-win the presidency, which he did. But now he is continuing it.

Indeed, President Obama will be embarking on a tour in support of his SOTU address traveling to Asheville, North Carolina, Atlanta, and his political home base in Chicago. Back to Mr. Krauthammer:

His idea — the objective, the political objective — now is to reduce, to fracture, to marginalize the Republicans in the House who were the ones that stopped the agenda in years three and four of his presidency, and who he has to marginalize if he wants to enact his agenda in the second term.

Remember when Obama dissed the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision during the 2010 SOTU address? The Supremes had to sit there and take it save for Justice Samuel Alito who was seen saying, “Not true!” Having no desire to be subjected to Obama’s demagoguery, Alito subsequently skipped the following SOTU nor was he present last year.

Unlike Supreme Court justices, senators and congressmen like to be seen on TV by their constituents. But senators and congressmen don’t like being insulted on TV especially on their turf. If President Obama plans to spend a better part of an hour heaping scorn towards the Republican side of the aisle, the GOP shouldn’t sit there and take it. Instead, they should stand up and walk out on President Obama. It would be a SOTU address no one would ever forget.

Could you imagine just how energizing that would be for the millions of us conservatives who “take it” day in and day out? We are so beaten about that we duck whenever we turn on the TV, listen to the radio or read a blog. It’s like whatever small good news for rational existence we get is swatted away the next moment. When you think it just can’t get any worse – it does.

Every one of us has imagined taking down the evil that has grown among us. If the Republicans were to make such a public refutation of Obama by walking out of the SOTU, it would inject a powerful reaction directly into our spirits – YES!!! It would feed our souls for the rest of the fight we have before us.

It won’t happen, but I can dream.

    Oh, if only the GOP were a brave, valiant party. Alas…

    Personally, I think every Republican should give up his or her seat for a surviving family member of the four men who were abandoned and killed in Benghazi. Two can play the Human Prop Game.

    Right on the money Diann. They have shrunk away from almost every issue since 08. No reason to believe in their ability to summons any bravery now.

    Did you see Boehner said Obama doesn’t have guts?

    If anyone should know what it means to be gutless…

    What if Barry gave a SOTU address and nobody on the GOP side came? Or watched on TV and all that was there were a bunch of democraps? Or would the friggin lapdog media say they were a bunch of racists for not showing up. Come on GOP show some balls and not attend and tell Barry to shove it.

    I would even watch the SOTU if I felt confident that the republicannots would actually have the spine to do what Krauthammer suggests. Maybe even shout out the window “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” Hey, it worked two years ago.

    Maybe I’ll record it as an act of wishful thinking.

    If I knew the GOP was going to walk out, I might even watch. Otherwise, I have more important things to do like watch reruns of Star Trek Voyager on ROKU.

    It would be fantastic to see them walk out.
    But they’ve got no guts. Nobody wants to rock the boat.
    The most they’ll ever do is the odd one will go on Fox or the Sunday talk shows and bleat about all the harm the Won is doing, but that’s as far as it goes. And it’s mostly preaching to the choir anyway.

    They need a bold move to get the sheeple’s attention.
    The mid-term elections are less than 21 months away!
    If the GOP doesn’t retain the house, it’s over, baby.

    Seeing as I lost my job because the Economy is doing so great, I cancelled my cable tv, so I won’t be watching even it I had some sick desire to pretend I’m sitting in the Reichstag.

    If John Boehner walked out…Wow.

    He’d change a lot of people’s minds about how they currently feel about him.

    I’ll save everyone from a couple of hours of Presidenting and politicking:

    Ladies and Gentlemen – the President of the United States.

    “I (blah, blah), I (blah, blah), me (blah, blah), me (blah, blah), I (blah, blah), my (blah, blah), I (blah, blah), I (blah, blah)…”

    And now for the Republican response, delivered by Joe Pesci:

    “What he said – it’s all bullshit.”

    Let’s get the reaction of John Boehner:

    “Wah, sniffle, sniffle, wah, wah.”

    And now a reaction from Nancy Pelosi:

    “We don’t have a spending problem, we don’t even have a budget problem. In fact, I’m rich and I don’t have any problems, bitches.”

    And a final thought from Chris Matthews:

    “I think I just had an orgasm. Over to you, Rachel.”

    Seriously, how would it go over if I said: “I’m gonna confiscate all weapons, tax the pablum right outta the mouths of yer babies, set up extermination camps for you white devils, appoint nothing but hard-wired socialists for every position, destroy the economy, institute hyper-inflation to assist in the destruction of America, impose Sharia, make you filthy Christians and Jews bow to muslims, re-enslave the dumbass blue gum purebreds to work my farms I’m gonna confiscate …”

    Even Chrissy Matthews would quit sucking my ass for a few seconds …

    Republicans, according to the Democrats and Obama Zombies are the enemy. Walking out of Pharaoh Obama’s speech would be the right thing to do.
    What would be more exciting would be seeing the Tea Party stand up, recite the Pledge of Allegiance, and walk out followed by conservative Republicans.
    The dumb, ignorant…er low information citizenship will of course say I told you so, republicans are haters, but that’s to be expected.

    BTW- Obaloney will be in North Carolina after his Destruction of the Union speech to put a curse on a company in Asheville.

    Yes, family members of the 4 fallen Americans should be guests of the GOP at tonight’s SOTU to face the coward Obama in person. Who knows, Hillary might even be in attendance as well.
