SOTU: ‘It sucks being in the minority’

By Joe Scarborough

 As the President entered the room an old friend sprinted for the exit.

“It sucks being in the minority. I’m going to the cloak room.”

He wasn’t alone. More than a few GOP members groused about the first female speaker that the President tipped his hat at the top of the speech.

Mr. Bush set the right tone off the top and actually looks better and more relaxed than he has in the four other state of the union speeches I have seen.

Maybe being in the minority will liberate him in a way it did Bill Clinton in 1996. Little comfort for the GOP House members seething in their seats.
