That's farked up, since most of the problems in America are the fault of right wingers. Most of the problems in the world are the fault of their international friends. We'd do best to marginalize them, denigrate them, and just generally treat them like the enemies of America they are.

Just like Democrats did when Trump was speaking.

Sorry, I meant "should have done".

I remember SOTU speeches being pretty gracious affairs, there was an uproar when Democrats grumbled when GWB said he was going to privatize Social Security. Very different from screaming "YOU LIE" but there was something different about that president. I can't put my finger on what it was though.

FTA: Other symbols of objection have taken place in front of the chamber's cameras as well.

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, for example, tore up a copy of then-President Donald Trump's 2020 State of the Union address when he wrapped up his remarks.

The big difference is that he actually was lying. 31 Verified falsehoods in the 2020 address.

Looks like my comment in last night's live thread:

MTG, Boeblert, and several others will most certainly heckle, boo, or otherwise interrupt Joe, and 40% of the nation will slobber like rabid dogs and cheer them on.

Farking cretins all need to be sent to Ukraine's front lines on a six month fact-finding mission to see how farking good we have it here in 'Murica.

I think this should be normal and I think opposition SHOULD do this stuff for SoTU or any joint address. Democrats should have heckled the fark out of Trump. Far far too much deference is given to the office.

I recorded it and based on the top smart comments in the live thread, Biden played rope-a-dope with the GOP to the point that even NRO and Politico basically admitted they got pwn3d.

80 year old Joe is still 50,000 times smarter and more politically savvy than all of the House GOP combined, and he's more than happy to politely and succinctly point that out to their faces.

Good.

She did wait for the speech to be over and didn't resort to mid speech heckling.

Republicans would have been more civil if Democrats only compromised with them more in the spirit of bipartisanship. So, you see, it's the fault of Democrats if you really think about it.

Every parent and teacher everywhere knows the exactly wrong thing to do when dealing with a child is to get childish in return.

That's what these people are.  Spoiled, bratty children that have had zero proper upbringing.

When Obama was President this was done exactly once by one congressman and he was fairly universally condemned for it.  Oh how things have gotten better!

As well as he did, engaging them at all was probably a mistake.  His job was to deliver his state of the union to congress, so if it didn't want to let him. I would have just said, "OK, I see you don't need my report I'll go do more useful things."  Then I would have just rescheduled the speech as being to the people themselves (its to congress) and explicitly explained my reasons.  I think that would have been a much bigger win and it adults a whole lot better than getting into some stupid back and forth with morons of the first order.

They are not to blame. All republicans believe anything that comes out of their filthy, amoral, idiot mouths is truth.

They're assholes. That's why their constituents voted for them. That's what they want and performances like this is what they expect. They call it things like "tellin' it how it is to power" and skickin' it to the libs" and it's more important to them than actual policy or doing the job. Republicans have better choices when it comes to who to vote for. They invariably pick the worst. It's their brand. You can call them "Republican voters", but a more accurate term would be "Fox News viewers".

FTFA:

When South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson shouted, "You lie!" during then-President Barack Obama's health care speech in 2009, he was swiftly condemned by members of his party. He later apologized.

---

After Tuesday night's address, McCarthy wouldn't comment to CNN when asked about the heckling. House Majority Leader Steve Scalise wouldn't criticize his members, instead calling on the president to stop his rhetoric about a GOP push to cut entitlements.

"Folks - as we all apparently agree, Social Security and Medicare is off the books now, right? They're not to be touched," he said, to what turned into claps. "We've got unanimity!"

Biden is just so much smarter than them.

The difference is we had chuckleheads here at Fark defending Joe Wilson back in the day.

Not so much with Queen Sporkfoot.  I guess that's an improvement.
