Biden Turns From Afghanistan to Domestic Agenda

"I am joined by byron york at the washington examiner and fox news. Good morning byron. How are you good morning you doing. Well thanks The lead story for me today has also the lead story in the wall street journal. The headline is biden seeks to shift focus to domestic issues after afghanistan. Exit white house plans to spend september pushing for passage of the president's agenda as he faces falling poll numbers. I personally believe that. Most americans know about the thousands of american citizens l. p. r.'s and sib holders abandoning afghanistan that they don't quite know the details but they're intently concerned with it and that it's an iceberg issue that the president is mishandling by treating it as something that will be forgotten. David drucker disagrees with me. Brian rosen wall. Very much disagrees with me. That americans are paying attention. What does byron york thing. Well i think that american's feelings about us citizens being left behind ghanistan. I think those feelings are essentially folded in to the poll. Numbers that you're seeing Biden's approval rating for his handling the situation afghanistan which are in the twenties. I mean those are nixon and watergate. Poll numbers So i do think that americans are aware of that now. A couple of things about biden changing the subject. Of course he wants to change the subject answer as well A lot of the pr. The question is what will allow the press. Go along with it if you look at politico's playbook this morning and we just tiny tiny little mention of afghanistan Much more on the biden Agenda on the other hand i was. I didn't hear the first half hour of your program Did you read. Senator blumenthal's tweets. Today did not. I tweeted the story out that he is outraged. He's a democrat but go ahead and tell people about it. Well Senator blumenthal Yesterday afternoon Posted a threat on twitter. My staff and i have worked night and day to secure the safe passage of two planes waiting in mazari sharif to take american citizens at risk afghan allies and their families to safety. My office join forces in this humanitarian mission with an incredible coalition of advocates ngos former servicemen and journalists to try to evacuate our fellow citizens in afghan allies by the way ngos former service members and journalists. Anybody missing from that list. Department and pentagon. Yeah exactly so anyway. He goes on And so this is as you point out a democratic senator which may be necessary to give this issue enough credibility for some members of the press to pay attention

You have asked me a series of questions like that are completely uncontroversial like. Nineteen is infectious whether smoking causes cancer and then trying to analogize that eliciting an opinion on me that as a very contentious matter opinion from me that has on a very contentious matter of public debate and I will not do that.

"Something that court should strive for. And I know on the seventh circuit we try and I try to be a tomb, Teo and writing opinions, whether it gives good guidance to lower courts and then to also those who are trying to order their conduct. You know, in compliance with the last thing clarity is certainly a virtue in this context. And I think that we're working. Like I said on a bipartisan bicameral basis, Tio help or do it on our part, Copyright law and technologies, another area that we've focused quite a bit on. I think I had One witness say that our current laws are ah MySpace laws and a tic tac world. There's a lot of changes that have occurred and we feel like there's a need for us to maybe move forward with some clarity and some protections. The Supreme Court has spent more than a century answering questions about whether copyright law covers new technologies like cameras. Player pianos, moving pictures. The list goes on several Internet enabled technologies. Do you think that the Supreme Court is the best institution? Answer these questions Or is that a role Congress should play. Most of the things you're identifying san to me like matters of policy, So those seem like matters that are best addressed by the Legislature, democratically elected body not policy made by courts. I agree. I think it's a complex subject and I'm glad to hear your opinion. And I hope that we make progress on it again. I have to think Senator Coons and Senator Blumenthal and Senator Hirono who are on that sub committee who have I think we've worked Well, and I'm hopeful that we'll make progress. I think Senator Blumenthal I ask you about the court's getting involved in elections, but before Somebody goes out into the cyber world and says non people are going to decide the outcome of the election. Nonvotes versus the tens of millions of votes that are being cast now will be cast by November, the third What you're potentially going to be confronted with our various lawsuits that may come in, based on changes and voting protocols for this cycle versus other ones, But at the end of the day, what role is the court gonna play? If any And the determination non people are not going to like the president. Regardless of who wins the election, But non people are going to have to consider various cases but at the foundation, is it accurate to say? That your role will be determining whether or not every single American who wishes the vote had their boat recorded on DH was given proper access Teo to make that boat is that fundamentally what the courts would decide. Fundamentally if an election dispute arose, obviously the issue, it's impossible.

"5th. The highest average was seen a month later. When about 145 people were dying every day that was back in early August. We're going in depth here. The first day of the confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Amy Cockney Barrett is over for the day, ABC, ABC Xena's delicate terra recaps so pretty contentious start to these hearings. You had Democrats really going after Republicans in their opening statement, calling their Republican counterparts hypocritical Senator in equal, which are calling the whole process a sham. Democrats were really trying to make the argument that it should be up to the next president to pick the next Supreme Court justice. They also Blasted Republicans for rushing the process. They argued that Republicans should be focused on passing a Corona virus relief bill that that is what is most pressing right now is providing American families and businesses that some, you know much needed economic relief and then we also saw some Democratic lawmakers start to try and paint Judge Amy Cockney Barrett as an activist who legislate from the bench. Those were the words of Senator Blumenthal, who, in his opening statement spoke directly to Judge Amy Kuney, Bharat and Those pretty striking moment she did during her opening statement kind of address that concern. She insisted that she doesn't believe it should be the role of the Supreme Court or of any court to create policy that it's up to elected officials to create policy that certainly in the coming days. I think you'll see Democrats really try and push this idea that she is an activist to legislate from the bench as Senator, Blumenthal said. And here's more from Senator Richard Blumenthal. Senate Republicans are refusing to address American healthcare or covert 19, or economic relief. Because they care more about putting an extremist ideological judge. On the bench. You heard Republicans actually kind of preemptively and try and defend themselves. They talked about how there was nothing unconstitutional about this that the judges qualified that judges are mutual. They tried to kind of hit their Democratic counterparts for floating this idea, possibly packing the court down the road. Your senator Lindsey Graham. The bottom line is Justice Skins Berg when asked about this several years ago. Said that a president serves four years, not three. There's nothing unconstitutional about this process. This is a vacancy that's occurred the tragic loss of a great woman. And we're going to fill that they could see with another great woman. Republican Senator Joni Earth's of Iowa defending the nominee, Judge Barry are attacking you as a mom. And a woman of faith. Because they can not attack your qualifications, but of Democrats also talking about the fact that because of the pandemic someone it shouldn't be happening, in their view. Because of everything that happened in 2016 with Merrick Garland Republicans back then we're making the argument that it should be up to the next President Phil that Supreme Court they could see And so President. Obama didn't even get to go through this process, but to Democrats are arguing that because of the Corona virus, this hearing should have been stone is certainly delayed. We we heard Senator Comma Harris, but she appeared virtually and she blasted the hearing for being held at all. The Senate majority is rushing this process and jamming President Trump's nominee through the Senate. While people are actually voting. The hearing continues tomorrow when taking your thoughts on our case became poll today. Let's get some traffic.

"Has continued to kick the can down the road allowing products like dangerously inclined infant. Newborn sleepers to proliferate today. Senator Blumenthal, and I have asked to GAO to look into these and other enforcement related issues. Chamberlain Burkle since two thousand twelve the has been aware of spontaneous crashes, caused by the popular Bob jogging stroller made by Britain axe crashes resulting in broken bones on ligaments and smash teeth after months of investigating the staff recommended the stroll up be recalled in two thousand eighteen the commissioners voted in support of that recall with you. Chairwoman Burkle being the lone dissenter after the shifted to a Republican majority. The commission drastically changed his position instead of a recall it decided on a voluntary settlement agreement with a stroller company, which sent it on a one year, public safety campaign. We are now almost halfway through the year. What evidence Madam chair? Do you have that this inflammation camp? Pain has adequately addressed the hasn't now serve. I could I would just like to correct the record. It wasn't a recall that I voted against. It was a lawsuit because the company refused to do a recall on the recalls. The we do at CPS for the most part or voluntary. We reach an agreement with a company to get that product as quickly as we can out of the consumer hands to avoid any additional injuries or deaths. So it was it was a lawsuit that I voted against it again, as I recounted to Senator Blumenthal, the interest that I have is keeping their consumer safe and the way we keep the consumer safest to get the products out of the market and then to provide an adequate remedy to them, and having only sued one, other case since I've been at the agency, and no remedy has been given to the consumer information campaign is working, I think more needs to be done. That was only part of the, the. The settlement agreement there were other components to it. One was to make other changes to the stroller and replace the bolt in, I would say that the, the settlement is in the process of continuing to work out. They've agreed to give us monthly report. So we will be known. We will know how we go to you Commissioner K. Are you concerned that not addressing this defect will mean the proliferation of other similarly, designed in problematic jogging strollers will be out on the market? Thankfully Senator market we haven't seen that. But I do think that to your earlier question that the as anticipated by Commissioner, I that this education campaign would be total debacle. I think that, that has played out, and I think consumers have been very poorly served by it. And I've seen zero evidence that what has been done to date has been even remotely effective in September of twenty eighteen the children's product team into division of defect. Investigations was eliminated. This would be the team responsible for studying the alleged effects in the jogging strollers and inclined sleepers that killed over thirty newborns. And burqa. Why was this team of children's experts? Abolished. Senator murky, the compliance organization was long overdue for reorganization the people who do the any testing or determination as to whether an essential product hazard. Many of those are under his identity -cation they are. We're not part of this reorganization, but our compliance director felt that he needed stronger people in charge of these various defect and regulated organizations with his within his compliance department. Jimmy Commissioner Kate, did you agree with the decision to eliminate this team of experts? Well, ultimately the decision was made by the chair, and this is under the purview of the chair, and if I could quickly answer, I would say that I was less concerned about the change in the name of where the organization that people were working under and how they're organized and far more concerned about the changing culture, Senator Markey with compliance of how the difference to industry became. The driving factor of their work, and that's what you think. Now characterizes I where experts on children's issues. I think that reside, I think they're still doing their same work. They're just doing an under a different name. But I do think the culture of the agency has changed from in my experience from one that was driven hard to try to take these products off the market to making sure that industry was not upset with whatever is being done. The commissioners. Thank you. Mr Chairman and chairman Berkeley. Your agency plays a significant role in each of our daily lives. I appreciate the hard work.

We are fully committed to solving this problem and have initiated a number of actions to ensure our soldiers and their families have access to safe quality military housing across all of our installations secretary expert says it's clear the private housing companies failed to uphold their end of the bargain and the military failed to adequately provide oversight.

"To be heard. But they need to be believed. They need to be believed of this country. Sheriff. Just say right at the outset. I believe. Dr for I believe survivor here. I stand with her shows up on Monday. Okay. So she should be bullied into this scenario. I believe I believe professor Ford. I think she's credible. I've ever even Chuck Schumer. I believe I believe I believe I believe well now that they have a Lieutenant governor in their own party. I'm not hearing very many, I believe as a matter of fact, I haven't heard one and the media the complicit the the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party. They're not asking those questions. What's interesting is now the woman's name that is claiming to have been assaulted by the Lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax her name is Dr Vanessa Tyson and through her attorney who happens to be the attorney for professor Ford. She has now released a statement. I'll read it to you says on the night of Friday, February I twenty nineteen read multiple news accounts, indicating that Virginia Lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax would likely be elevated to governor as an immediate result of a scandal involving. Ralph Northam news flooded me with painful memories, bringing back feelings of grief and shame and anger that stem from an incident with Mr. Fairfax that occurred in July of two thousand and four during the democratic national convention in Boston. I remember that convention well because our member one particular night, we were hanging out. And we decided it met a bunch of Boston cops, and we went into this local pub, and and I wanted to buy everybody dinner, and we just had the time of our lives this the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet anyway, I met Mr. Fairfax on July twenty six two thousand four when he and I worked at the convention. We stuck up a struck up a conversation on the first day of the convention soon realized we had mutual friends we cross paths occasionally during the first two days, and our interactions were cordial, but not flirtatious we commiserated about our long work hours and on the afternoon of the third day of the convention, July twenty eight two thousand four. Four Mr. Fairfax suggested I get some fresh air by company him on a quick errand to retrieve documents from his room in a nearby hotel, given our interactions up to the time. I had no reason to feel threatened and agreed to walk with him to his hotel. I stood in the entry way of the room. And after he located the documents he walked over, and he kissed me, although sort of surprised by the advance it was not unwelcome and I kissed him back. He then took my hand pulled me towards the bed. I was fully clothed in a pantsuit at no intention of taking my clothes off or engaging in sexual activity in the back of my mind. I also knew I needed to return to the convention headquarters. What began as consensual kissing quickly turned into a sexual assault. Mr. Fairfax put his hand behind my neck, he forcefully push my head towards his crotch only. Then did I realize that he had buckled his belt unzipped, his pants and taken out his penis? He then forced his penis into my mouth utterly shocked and terrified I tried to move my head away, but could not because his hand was holding down my neck, and he was much stronger than me because I cried and gagged Mr. Fairfax forced me to perform oral sex on him. I cannot believe given my obvious distress that Mr. Fairfax thought that this four sexual act was consensual to be very clear, I did not want to engage in oral sex with Mr. Fairfax never gave him any former consent quite the opposite. I consciously avoided Mr. Fairfax for the remainder of the convention. Never spoke to him again after the assault. I suffered from both deep humiliation and shame. I did not speak about a for years. And I like, many survivors are most survivors suppressed those memories and emotions as a necessary means to continue my studies and pursue my goal of building a successful career. As an academic at the. The time I found this horrific incident, especially degrading, giving my regular volunteer work at a local rape crisis center over the next decade, or so I would go on to earn my PHD from the university of Chicago and become a tenured professor at scripts college, a prestigious women's college in Claremont, California years later in October twenty seventeen I saw a picture of Mr. Fairfax accompanying an article in the root about his campaign for Lieutenant governor in Virginia the image hit me like a ton of bricks triggering buried traumatic memories and feelings of humiliation. I felt so intensely back in two thousand four and prior to reading that article. I had not followed Mr. Fairfax's career did not know that he was seeking public office. Unsure what to do. I felt it was crucial to tell close friends of mine in Virginia who voters about this assault. He says that over the boat, quote me too movement intensified and women throughout the world began forcefully, speaking out about their sexual violence that they had experience and the impact of those experiences on their lives. The courage of so many women coming forward to confront such powerful men and symptoms that and systems that allowed such abuse to occur are part of what inspired me to action. I felt a responsibility to myself the beloved students, I teach the brave women. I've tried to help overcome their own trauma, the passion and resolve of so many survivors coupled with the job security in that tenure afforded me gave me the strength strength. I simply did not have in two thousand and four by December of two thousand seventeen I not only told many friends that Mr. Fairfax at sexually assaulted me. But I also reached out to a personal friend at the Washington Post and spoke to his colleague about the assault. After the Washington Post decided in March of two thousand eighteen not to run my story, I felt powerless frustrated and completely drained again, I tried to bury memories of this painful incident and focus on my work, and my students on Friday, February I twenty nineteen as stories appeared in the media suggesting governor north would have to resign, Mr.. Fairfax would be sworn in as governor. I felt they jarring sense of both outrage and despair that night, I vented my frustration on Facebook in a message that I wrote as a private post, I did not identify Lieutenant governor Fairfax by name, but stated that it seemed inevitable that the campaign staffer who assaulted me during the democratic convention in. Oh, four was about to get a big promotion. It was not my intention in that moment to inject myself into what has become a much larger political battle the following morning. I was inundated with messages of care concern from friends, including many. I told about the sexual assaults and numerous inquiries from journalists who had become aware of my post over the weekend. I was undecided about whether to speak out publicly. I knew if I did. So I would immediately face accusations about my motives be branded a liar. As is routinely. The case when women come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against prominent men on Sunday night before I had time to decide on a course of action. An online publication published a screen shot of my Facebook post identified me by name posted pictures of me and in response at two fifty five AM February fourth twenty nineteen Mr. Fairfax issued a statement further. Escalating the matter by calling me, a liar and falsely characterizing the reasons the Washington Post decided not to run the story about my allegations. The post was forced to repudiate Mr. Fairfax statement that were significant red flags and inconsistent. Agencies within the allegations, which led it to decide not to publish the story about my account rather. As is often the case in situations where sexual assault by an acquaintance occurs behind closed doors years earlier, it's difficult to corroborate either the victims allegations or the accused deny denials, Mr. Fairfax suggestion that the Washington Post found me not to be credible was deceitful. It was dishonest profoundly upsetting. He has continued a smear campaign by pointing reporters to a two thousand seven educational video which I talked about being a victim of incest molestation in that video. I did not talk about being assaulted by Mr. Fairfax. This of course, is not proof that he did not assault me. His reliance on this video to say the opposite is despicable and an offensive and defensive to sexual assault, survivors everywhere. And she goes on now since October twenty seventeen when it first began telling friends about the assault. I have never wavered in my account because I'm telling the truth. I have no political motive I am a proud democrat by only motive now and speaking out is to refute. Mr. Fairfax's falsehoods aspirations of my character or provide? What I believe is important information for Virginians to have as they make a critical decision that involves Mr. Fairfax with tremendous anguish. I am now sharing. This information about my experience setting the record straight. It has been extremely difficult to relive the traumatic experience from two thousand and four Mr. Fairfax's tried to brand me a liar to a national audience in service to his political ambitions and has threatened litigation giving us false assertions. I am compelled to make clear what happened. I very much wish to resume my life as an academic. And professor I do not want to get further embroiled in this highly charged political environment. This is the. Statement I and my legal team will be making. Now, what is Virginia do? Now, you got the governor he's should go. Then you've got the Lieutenant governor. You can't put him in place of the governor. But I wanna know where STAN Feinstein, where's Kamala Harris, where is Senator Blumenthal? Where is the Senator from from Hawaii where Hirono where is everybody that said, I believe nowhere to be found. You know, the other good thing about the president's speech last night. It's, you know, at the beginning in the end, it's not about Republicans and Democrats not at it's about an agenda for the American people. How does that? How do the Democrats ever reconcile their position that a president that offers to make the country safer prevent the homicide sexual assaults violent assaults cartels, drug members ninety percent of heroin coming into this country that they won't even talk that things one supported claiming they want DACA and dreamers. President offers that they still won't talk. President says I'm asking you to choose greatness. No matter. What trials we face? No matter what challenges to come. We must go forward. Together. We must keep America. First in our hearts. We must keep freedom alive in our souls. And we must keep faith in America's destiny that one nation under God must be the hope in the promise and the light glory among all the nations of the world. Thank you. God bless you. God bless America. The president talked about everything and when he went through I I'm not gonna give the litany of his successes. I'll do it on TV tonight. But we've done it many times, but putting it up on our website, Hannity dot com, all of his successes. Something the media will never talk about look at what he said about North Korea. Look at the trade deals look at the energy. I mean, the fact that we're now the number one producer of oil natural gas in the world for the first time in sixty five years is amazing. We're now on target to be the biggest producer and all these forms. Look at criminal Justice reform, what a powerful moment when Alice Johnson. Who we have interviewed. Pointed out, then he said, welcome home to Matthew Charles, the guy that have been in prison in nineteen Ninety-six thirty five years guy that did thirty bible studies in jail. Look at the case that the president laid out for immigration in the safety of the American people. I'll never abolish our heroes for mice. The president said will I will get it done president's gonna find one way or another. I told you that may take time, but he's going to get it done. I have a lot of faith that he keeps his promises, and he has a track record the power in his speech was the power in his policies that have worked that an a an investigation impeachment obsessed media hate Trump media hate Trump, congress.

"But it accords a lot of discretion the rule that William bar cited in his written responses just a day or so ago, a lot of discretion to the attorney general we're trying to make it clear and compulsories. So that William bar is not the judge the statute requires a report to be done, and that report to be disclosed directly to congress and no basis for concealing or censoring. That report the public has a right to know. It's a very simple principle. The public paid a lot of money for this report. They deserve the results and the idea that William bar should be the judge or anyone else really goes against that principle that unites Senator Grassley and myself, it's bipartisan legislation for bipartisan principle, and it's a special counsel who after. All is appointed. Remember in only the most serious and significant circumstances violation of public trust. And the public has a right to know Senator Blumenthal and former congressman Bello thank you both. Thank you have. Meanwhile, political hijinks Trump tell all exposes backstabbing and even chaos in the west wing Trump. Resorting to a threat will be back with all of it in thirty seconds. The Trump White House on edge tonight over two new books, spilling the tea and a lot of secrets Trump advisor, Chris Christie and former staffer cliff SIMS who says working in the White House required working with vipers, displayed banality stubbornness and selfishness. He blast. One is literal cartoon villain and says another plunged a knife into someone's back twisting it with relish team Trump now threatening to sue SIMS for violating an alleged nondisclosure agreement. Not Trump's done that to several other former age, including Omarosa who is currently an arbitration with Trump over his lawsuits, although you may have noticed it hasn't exactly stopped her from speaking in public when you ask Trump's team about these secret contracts, they often sound pretty secretive. I can't speak to anybody else. What I can tell you. I've never seen one in this White House. I've ever been asked to sign one in this White House. I'm not going to get into the back and forth on who has signed India here at the White House. Did you sign an NDA regarding your campaign experience of your White House experience? I think everybody signed NDA did you so yes, I think I think everybody had to sign into you. Let's get into politics. Asian host Reverend Al Sharpton who leaves the national action network is here and the Daily Beast Lloyd grove was reported on Trump's use of NDA's good evening. A little bit of nervousness there at the White House Rev, what do you think of the secrecy? And what do you think of what's really coming out in these books? The secrecy is how he operates a we talking about a president that we atole spent hundreds of thousands of dollars telling mistresses to be quiet so secrecy as a way he did as private business in New York. Clearly, he's operating that way in the White House. I think the most interesting thing for me one book, clearly talks about the disarray in the White House and disorganization which is a real risk to the public because we're not talking now about his private business put when you have former governor Christie saying that he came in and said Flynn is fired. Now, this Russian thing is over a lot of people reacted to that. What does it mean? But I think we're missing the point. He did not say isn't as an outraged at somebody might have been doing some with Russia. All they got to get to the bottom by he's talking like a guy that got away with a cry. Okay. It's over with now. I mean, if Christie thought he was helping him there how we never helps me going. He's in fixing all they wanted was oval. It's done. We gave a fall to understand how they work because you are think our viewers around some VIP situations and you've been around for a while. What does it mean when Chris Christie writes in the book that when he first sat down with Trump for dinner? He's he's telling us that Trump insisted on ordering for him and ordered scallops and Christie's allergic to scallops, but he felt dominated VIP thing where then you get back at them later..

Well, again, again, this is a classic example of how everyone is so eager to pounce. Everyone is so eager. Listen the BuzzFeed story on on Thursday night. Yeah. Mr. Phillips never served in Vietnam.

And there are some some Hanky items coming up in the native American story, and there are questions again. I'm not gonna say with any certainty yet because I haven't seen, you know, records from the department of defense, but there are questions being raised on whether he was an actual Vietnam veteran, whether he was just a Vietnam era. That's what happened with Blumenthal. And again, I just can't even imagine the people Connecticut, you know, you your attorney general the highest law enforcement officer in the state was lying about his military service. And of course, now, he's Senator Blumenthal from Connecticut, and I've talked about that for years. Years on this program, and stolen valor.

But nobody's saying anything about the native American people that were there that did not deserve these horrible insults by the black Israelites there unacceptable to the millions degrees.

I mean, I have met with the head of the botanical garden who's not on the cabinet of force. I have met with the nominee for the patent off. Office, Chris, but we can't have a meeting with the nominee for one of the most important cabinet positions. While this Muller investigation is going on before the hearing. And I just think that's wrong would add to that the fact that as a citizen he filed this one thousand nine page memo. I don't have citizens. I'd do that they might send me one thousand nine characters and tweet about an issue, but he filed suddenly in one thousand nine page issue like a tryout for this job where he basically espoused this very expansive view of executive power. That reminds me some of what we saw on the cavenaugh hearings. And it seems to me the president is gathering people. Be it a qualified person who has served as attorney general before certainly more experienced than Mr. Whittaker who is sitting there. Now, the acting attorney general, but you have some real issues here that we're going to have to question him about under oath. I just want to make sure I understand what you're saying here. Did they tell you know, you can't meet him? They said that I could meet him after the hearing because of the shutdown that they weren't able to do the meeting, which we know is pretty ironic given that we have TSA officers who are out there and be I and other government workers who are out doing their job now without pay or are furloughed they weren't able to bring him over because of the shutdown in their time and focus it was on that as well. As the holidays. Do we were told he did me we Republicans? Right. I I saw picture of Lindsay Graham today he did. But he was not able to meet with us until after the hearing, or at least to me, and I think Senator Blumenthal had also made a request. All right, Senator Amy klobuchar on the judiciary Senate ready to go next week, Chris, and I'll have a lot of good questions. All right. Thanks for making time still to come.

Tonight, Chuck and Nancy's response to the president's Oval Office address last night got a lot of attention on the internet. Not so much for the substance of what they said.
