Final Note

Maybe Obama should just ‘Shake it Off’

It’s a time-honored Washington tradition – the president’s rivals offer rebuttals to the State of the Union before the president has even delivered it. That’s even easier this year, because the president has spent the last few days previewing his speech as he introduces new policy proposals at events across the country.

House Speaker John Boehner attacked Obama’s “free college” proposal in a novel way this morning, in an email to reporters with this subject line: “12 Taylor Swift GIFs for you.”

He used a different GIF of Taylor Swift to illustrate his argument that the presidents plan will cost taxpayers too much money. 

You can find the whole list here.

Apparently John Boehner is a Taylor Swift fan.
