While President Obama spoke with one voice for the Democrats with his State of the Union speech last night; the Republicans had multiple messages to send to you, the American people. And they needed multiple voices to get it done.
And by multiple voices, we mean four.
Senators Mike Lee and Rand Paul were joined by Congresswomen Cathy McMorris-Rodgers, and Ileana Ros-Lethinen in speaking for Republicans. Analyst Bryan Preston told KTRH Paul was the uninvited guest, so to speak. One addition is Senator Ted Cruz, who listed 4 things he did not hear mentioned by the President.
“He looks like a big self promoter. There’s a time to speak and there’s a time to be silent,” Preston said.
Paul is mentioned as a Presidential candidate for 2016. Some Democrats have said the multiple responses means the G-O-P has lost credibility. Preston can see where they are coming from.
“There is that risk. It could hurt the party,” Preston said.
But, Preston doesn’t think that will wind up being the case.
“They let it hang out. Sometimes it looks messy. But that’s how democracy works. You get ideas out there. The best ideas win. There was a chance for Republicans to make an impact,” Preston explained.
So did the message get lost in the shuffle?
“It’s got to be confusing for people to see these different responses from the same party,” Preston stated.
Preston telling KTRH if Democrats weren't blindly following the President maybe we wouldn't have to worry about Obamacare.
