This is a laugh. Because they control congress, the US Republicans actually invite the President to give the state of the union address. That’s the keynote speech of the President each year.
But, in a remarkable act of anally retentive insanity, the Republicans are actually seriously considering not inviting President Obama to give the speech this year.
As Taegan Goddard wryly observes:
Perhaps Republicans could have Mitt Romney give the speech and pretend Barack Obama isn’t even president.
