Rep. Broun Warns GOP: Mixed Seating At SOTU Is “A Trap” To “Silence Republicans” (Video)
Yesterday on Scott Hennen‘s radio show, Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) vehemently rejected the idea of the parties mixing during the presidential address while Obama “spews his venom.”

BROUN: Well, I agree with you wholeheartedly. In fact, I’m talking to members of Congress. Our leadership said you do whatever you want to do. If you wanna sit with the Democrats, you can. If you wanna sit with Republicans, that you can. We’re going to have a conference next week and I’m gonna bring that up there. I already believe very firmly that it is a trap and a ruse that Democrats are proposing. They don’t want civility. They want silence from the Republicans. And the sitting together being kissy-kissy is just another way to try to silence Republicans, and also to show — to keep the American people from seeing how few of them there are in the U.S. House now. Then when people stand up to — what the Democrats are going to be doing when Barack Obama spews out all his venom, then, um, if they’re scattered throughout all the Republicans, then it won’t be as noticeable as if we’re sitting apart. So it is a ruse and I’m not in favor of it and I’m talking about it and I hope other members of the Republican conference in the House will not take the bait.
Rep. Paul Broun gets it. The mixed seating by democrats is nothing but a ploy to make failed president Barack Obama look good.
