A few minutes after President Barack Obama completes his State of the Union (SOTU) address, we will get to see one of the major problems with the Republican Party.
According to several reports, there will be three responses from the right. Three. Washington Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers will give the “official” Republican response. The Tea Party response will be given by Utah Senator Mike Lee. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul will give another Tea Party response.
Sadly, Montana’s lone Representative and U.S. Senate candidate, Steve Daines, will probably be paying more attention to the responses from Lee and Paul than the one from Rodgers. Daines has aligned himself with the Tea Party quite remarkably in his first year in Congress.
At least two Montana newspapers have noticed Daines and his extreme views.
