On “This Week with Christiane Amanpour,” ABC News’ George Will expressed his opposition to the theatrics engendered by the State of the Union address.  “Every president, regardless of party, tries to stroke every erogenous zone in electorate,” said Will.

Echoing a description by Chief Justice John Roberts, Will called the State of the Union a political pep rally.  “If it's going to be a pep rally,” Will exclaimed on the “This Week” roundtable, “with the president's supporters or whatever party standing up and braying approval, and histrionic pouting on the part of the other, then it's no place for the judiciary, it's no place for the uniformed military, and it's no place for non-adolescent legislators.”
