Yahoo! News reports that U.S. Rep. Paul Broun, R-Athens, has joined other Republicans who intend to skip President Barack Obama’s Thursday speech on jobs before Congress:
“Dr. Broun will not be attending President Obama’s joint address, but he looks forward to hearing the president’s proposal for job creation,” Broun spokeswoman Meredith Griffanti [said]. “Dr. Broun will instead watch the speech from his office where he will host a live town hall via Twitter to interact with his constituents.”
Broun remained in his office during Obama’s State of the Union address in January, providing his own commentary on the social networking website throughout the speech.
Going out on a thin limb, but here’s a prediction: Broun, who in the past has painted Obama as either a fascist or socialist, won’t like what he hears.
