Assorted Republican responses to the State of the Union served as the latest reminder of the civil war raging within the party.
Republicans took multiple tries to deliver their reaction to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night.
In addition to the officially sanctioned Republican Party response by
Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and a Spanish-language version
by Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the Tea Party Express faction
continued its practice of delivering a separate speech, this year by
Utah Senator Mike Lee.
