Here are some of the things Republicans refused to applaud or cheer at last night’s State of the Union:
- Nearly 15 million new jobs and the unemployment rate being cut in half.
- Equality for all Americans.
- Cutting pollution levels.
- A good education for our children.
- Fighting terrorism.
- The idea that America is the strongest nation on earth.
- Avoiding war.
- Making it easier to vote.
- Curing cancer.
So we must assume that Republicans oppose these things.
