Democrats frustrated over speech rebuttal by own party leader

Several Democrats are upset that their own party’s Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) spoke in a rebuttal following President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address on Tuesday.

Tlaib had announced her plans to share her own response, offering a more radical version of Biden’s thoughts.

“It’s like keying your own car and slashing your own tires,” Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) told Axios ahead of the speech.

Tlaib spoke on behalf of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, while Rep. Colin Allred (D-TX) spoke on behalf of the Congressional Black Caucus.

While Biden’s remarks offered few details and were more moderate in many areas, Tlaib offered a more radical approach.

The rebuttal may not make all Democrats happy, but shows there are some Democrats far more radical than Biden seeking control of the party.
