If we drank every time Obama made us feel like we needed it we’d all be raging alcoholics.
One Democratic congressman says he was ready to hit the bottle after hearing the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union Tuesday night.
Rep. Anthony Weiner (N.Y.), who is known for his outspokenness, praised Obama’s speech as “uplifting,” but said that House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) response was too dour for his taste.
“[Obama] was then followed by a guy who was bumming us out,” he said on MSNBC Tuesday night. “I felt like I just needed a drink when I was done with Paul Ryan.”
Weiner also took a swipe at Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), the chairwoman of the House Tea Party Caucus, who delivered her own rebuttal to the president.
“And then Michele Bachmann who clearly was not in touch with the mother ship,” Weiner said. “That is the contrast we heard. I think it was a good night for President Obama.”
