Senator Mike Lee to deliver Tea Party response to President Obama’s State of the Union

Last week, Mark Levin made a controversial suggestion to the House Republicans. He said that they should boycott the State of the Union address as a way to take a symbolic stand against a “lawless president.” Levin proposed that the Republicans “present their own case” in order to get the attention of the media and the rest of the country.

“If they’re not going to take a stand constitutionally and legally, they should at least take a stand on the steps of the Capitol or somewhere, together, shoulder to shoulder, and say we have a lawless president doing lawless things, and make their case to the American people.”

Some people have criticized the idea of a boycott, which is highly unlikely to happen. But most agree that an alternative message desperately needs to be presented.Senator Mike Lee

The Tea Party Express, which is the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is planning to host the official Tea Party response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address directly following the Republican response. Tea Party favorite Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) will deliver the  response at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
