When President Obama enters the House chamber to give his final State of the Union address on Tuesday, one of the three Republican presidential candidates in Congress will be missing. 

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) will skip the president’s address, opting instead to head to New Hampshire where he hasn’t campaigned since November, a Cruz campaign spokesman confirmed. 

The three remaining candidates — Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) — will attend. 

Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler told The Hill that the Texas senator will be "disappointed" by the president's speech regardless of where he'll be. “It won’t matter because he’ll be just as disappointed in New Hampshire as he will be in the chamber.”

Actually.....that's a good idea.  Showing up and then walking out when obama goes to the podium.  Then it can't be said they had previous engagements or emergencies.  That would be a VERY CLEAR MESSAGE

I hope the TV ratings are minuscule.  I would not waste my time listening to Barry Hussein (pbuh). 

You can sure bet my t.v.s won't be on.

What's the point of being at the State of the Union?  We know the Obama will tell one lie after another, will criticize Americans and will talk about gun control.  We've heard it all before.  Strange how Mr. Rubio can miss important votes, but show up for the SU address. You'd think his vote was more important than his "attendance". 

He will show up, for sure. He must make an "appearance" so everyone can see him, Votes are not worth being there for, but a chance to get his pic taken is. The man I am going to vote, for sure as hell has better things to do.

Why don't all the members skip the union address?  you will be disappointed and like Mr. Cruz spokesperson said you can be disappointed at home just as you can be sitting right there....Lets all skip it and just turn off all tvs and not watch this idiot.

Got it, for sure. A Mass Turn-Off. "Ratings" in the toilet, due to extreme lack of interest.

Obama is the worst speaker! One of the cardinal rules is not to say "ummmmm" and that asshat does it all the time, it turns my stomach. I haven't heard any of his speeches past the first "ummmmm" and I'm fine so probably Ted Cruz will be ok :)

Every conservative republican should absent themselves from Obama's speech. Obama never listens to them so why should they listen to him?

Disappointed?? Try INFURIATED that this Demon - in -Skin, who is a seditious, treasonous CRIMINAL, should still be listened to( which is validation) by ANYONE !! Much less give US, another stupid lecture on how LAW ABIDING AMERICANS are the cause of ALL the ills in this Country!!Mr.Cruz is missing an opportunity to REALLY make the RIGHT statement here: if Ovomit is not stopped, somehow, NOW, there may not be an election!!

 I believe Mr. Cruz is making the Right statement. I can only hope that many would join him by not showing up.

     I would like to see the Chamber stand and say.."Joe Wilson, you said the Truth when you stood up in this Chamber and said the BASTARD LIED"..!     What a great day when the TRUTH is spoken in that Chamber........Semper FI

TRUMP ->  WHY DOES ANTIFA NEVER ATTACK BIKERS FOR TRUMP?

President insults leftists during social media summit

The president made reference to the Antifa attack on gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo in Portland last month.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
