GOP Congressman Walks Out Of Obama’s Speech, Too Disgusted To Watch
January 29, 2014 11:58am PST
Rep. Steve Stockman, a Republican from Texas, left Obama’s State of the Union address early last night because he was disgusted by what he heard.
The Texas congressman said he simply “could not bear to watch as he continued to cross the clearly-defined boundaries of the Constitutional separation of powers.”
He was particularly disturbed by Obama’s promise to “act on his own,” without Congress. Stockman said Obama promised to “break his oath of office and begin enacting his own brand of law through executive decree… This is a wholesale violation of his oath of office and a disqualifying offense.”
“Needless to say, I am deeply disappointed in the tone and content of tonight’s address,” he concluded.
