GOP Star Cathy McMorris Rodgers To Rebut The State Of The Union

Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) will give the rebuttal to President Obama’s fifth State of the Union (SOTU) Address immediately following the Constitutionally mandated speech. The representative from Eastern Washington, after a mere eight years in Congress, is the fourth-ranking Republican in the House. We all know for certain, this response has already been written, without knowledge or concern for the actual content of the SOTU. More than likely, she will regurgitate Roger Ailes’ talking points which emanated from his cold, dark heart, not from actual facts.

She received her undergraduate degree from then unaccredited Pensacola Christian College, which certainly helped form her pro-Republican, women-should-know-their-place persona. In Congress, she has been a bastion of ultra-conservative values. Frighteningly enough, she is on the United States House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce, The Subcommittee on Energy and Power and the Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy Subcommittee on Health. As the Republicans have ALWAYS shown, they care little for the health and environment of the USA and have no interest in protecting future generations who have to live on this planet they’ve literally trashed.

One of only eight women to serve while giving birth (two times), thus fulfilling her duties of procreating, and has exploited this in her pro-life voting record (pro-life equals pro-fetus, not pro-humanity). She cares little for poor, single mothers as shown by her support of the Farm Bill on July 11, 2013. The bill passed in a 216-208 vote, which included farm policy and subsidies for the big farming industry but of course, did not include food stamps. McMorris Rodgers is personally involved in driving the Republican agenda in Congress, including VETOING The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and voting along with anti-American Teaparty lunatics by voting to shut down the government while blaming, who else, but President Obama.

Often compared to her friend Sarah Palin, McMorris Rodgers is also afflicted with Palin-like word-salad delivery. Any “rebuttal” will be less captivating than the SOTU, with its impressive audience set in the House chamber. The giant room is filled with the members of Congress, SCOTUS and countless dignitaries. It’s already hard to compete with the setting and a great orator like President Obama. But the GOP has a curious knack for finding the most uninspiring, least dynamic people to rebut the annual address, and this year proves no different. If the fate of her predecessors Rubio, Jindal and Daniels are any indication, her rebuttal will be her political kiss of death.

    I have to wonder, does this mean that GOP is continuing with its tradition of giving the rebuttal to their rising stars like Jindal and Rubio, or are they pulling in a backbencher after realizing that these rebuttal speeches only serve to damage these rising stars?

      If they were using a true “backbencher” Louis Gohmert would be their guy tonight.

    I have always wondered who the woman was who lines up with Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy at their lame ‘press conferences’. I assumed she was one of their wives.
