I wonder why not just cancel it altogether though. It's not necessary and the shutdown is plenty excuse to just say let's do it next year.

The Constitution says the President "shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union." So they could cancel the speech and let him deliver a letter. And probably ditch the yearly part as well. You could interpret 'from time to time' in any number of ways - just ask scumbag McConnell about 'timely'.

Also this used to be an administrative report more or less. This year we did this, this year we did that. Now it's a political speech. It's basically the second Amendment, still nice to have but something that needs re-worked so it's not used as a political device with the defense that the constitution allows for it.

Pelosi is handling the Ilhan Omar thing very well. Hitting all the right notes, saying that she believes Omar's intent was not anti-Semitic and talking about Omar just being unaware of how her words would land. Making the house resolution about anti-hate, whether it's anti-Semitims, anti-Muslim bigotry, or white supremacy and insisting "It's not about her."

I agree. I think she's walking the line well.
