Why on earth do we have the opposing party give a rebuttal of the President's state of the Union address right afterwards? I dont get the point. I mean they dont even know what the President is going to say prior to the address so they end up rebutting absolutely nothing. They just talk about how the President is wrong. I mean seriously, I dont care what party is in control or rebutting. There is no point to it. It's a complete waste of time. Does anyone honestly think people care about whomever the opposing party decides to sacrifice to do it? Or that the media isnt going to rip the speech apart anyway?
