There will likely be at least some bipartisan seating in the House chamber for President Obama’s speech next week.Aw, a symbolic gesture of unity. Where was that so-called unity when his party was busy calling Republicans hostage takers last month? Has Udall denounced his fellow Democrat who said tea partiers want to see blacks hanging from trees?
Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) does not plan to renew his previous call for lawmakers to sit together in a symbolic gesture of unity. However, he intends to set an example at Obama’s jobs speech, which will take place before a joint session of Congress on Sept. 8.
“Mark Udall plans to ask a Republican to sit with him at the president’s speech, just as he did at the State of the Union address,” Udall spokeswoman Tara Trujillo said in an email Friday. “Mark hopes other members of Congress will do the same."Um, no. It'll create a false image that the majority is going along with what is sure to be rehashed, tired plans from President Zero.
Udall sent a letter to fellow lawmakers in January prior to Obama’s State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress.
“It's time to take action by crossing the aisle and sitting together,” Udall wrote. “It's a simple step, but an important one that will go a long way in bridging our political divide.”
