I’m really looking forward to hearing the SOTU address this evening. It has always been a favorite of mine for many reasons, however, like most Americans, tonight I will be listening to the rhetoric. It has really digressed over the last two decades reaching a level of embarrassment and certainly hindering our nation’s progress.
I know some Congressional members are sitting with their friends on the other side of the aisle to make a statement. This is a nice gesture and we’ll see how it goes. Next year, I would recommend you establish a seating chart by state delegation in your chamber. Might be a fun little experiment to have all the members from Alabama sitting next to the members from Alaska sitting next to those from Arkansas and so on and so forth. Just a thought from your friend, the Senator’s wife in Oklahoma.
Hope you are tanned, rested and ready! It looks like you’re in for a bumpy ride.
Read your post with great interest, contemplating your idea for the seating arangement, got to the end where you wrote, “Hope you are tanned,” and haven’t stopped giggling since. Speaker Boehner may not always be rested or ready, may not have the best taste in ties, but I’m pretty sure he’ll always be tanned.
I enjoy reading your posts. Keep them coming.
Tom – thanks for the kind comment. And, I agree – Boehner will always be tan!
