Cathy McMorris Rodgers R-Washington seems like a nice lady, but her response to the President's State of the Union Speech was a big snore. The main problem was she gave more of a stump speech for herself and ABOUT herself and family than a response to the Presdident. Whoops! She needed more response in her response, and that's probably the nicest thing anyone can say about it. However, if she ever wants to be President of the Spokane Elementary PTA, this speech would probably get her the job.

Cathy McMorris Rodgers thought she was auditioning for a job on Romper Room.— GoldenStateOfMind (@RockCandy15) January 29, 2014
@SamSeder but she did look like she was going to pour me a cup of tea while she sat on that couch.— Joyce Moore (@joycemfs) January 29, 2014
Cathy Rodgers, through her description of her son's health issues, just made a great commercial for Obamacare's pre-existing protection.— Randy Prine (@randyprine) January 29, 2014
Rep. Rodgers response sounds like an informercial for an American based cliche company.— Richard Yeselson (@yeselson) January 29, 2014
Obama gives an hour plus long, solid, concise, and detailed speech rooted in the reality of governing and this is the Repubs 12 minute response? OK.

Like most Americans I woke up this morning asking myself "Does Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers really have the most wonderful husband and family in the whole wide world?" I've written to Politifact and Fact Checker to look into this burning issue for America.

Cathy John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt McMorris Rodgers. . . . Wasn’t she a treat? Did you like it as she simpered and unfortunate-necklined her way into your heart, where the real State of the Union lives? Us too! We are sold on her vision for America, even though the speech didn’t really explain what that was. “Anything but the black guy” may be a rallying cry, but does not actually count as a plan to run a country, much to the GOP’s chagrin.
So, what is America’s new Super Sweetheart SuperMom like? Besides being remarkably fecund while in office, having 3 babbies in 6 years, all during her Congressional terms, she is otherwise pretty much your garden variety little snipe of a Republican, but with lady parts, which makes her extra well-suited for reaching out to ladies, because their uteri can all quiver in harmony or bow down before a really busy uterus like Cathy’s or something like that.

I am just going to out and out say it. Cathy McMorris Rodgers was TERRIBLE. It was just about impossible to take her seriously during the entire address. It was almost entirely due to her delivery. We all knew what she would be discussing. It was going to be a by-the-numbers Republican refutation of everything that the President stands for, and that is exactly what we got

She spoke about her kids and growing up in Kettle Falls, and reiterated the standard Republican criticisms of the Afforable Care Act. She mentioned Sgt. Jacob Hess of Spokane, a marine who died last month in Afghanistan. While speaking about health care, she also said she’d received a letter from “Bette in Spokane” about her insurance premium going up $700.
In total, she mentioned Spokane twice — and the Internet blew up with people confused about why she was talking about Spokane so much.
