Bachmann To Give "Alternate" Rebuttal To State Of The Union Address

Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., won't be the only Republican giving a rebuttal to the president's State of the Union Address Tuesday night.

A Tea Party organization points to an alternate rebuttal offered by Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

"Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has confirmed with us that she will broadcast her response to Barack Obama's State Of The Union address this Tuesday," a post on the website said. "You'll be able to watch her rebut Obama via her address which will be broadcast on our website"

Tea Party Express Chairman Amy Kremer said she was "thrilled" with the news, calling Bachmann, who founded Tea Party Caucus in Congress, "a 'Rock Star' of the movement."

"I'm excited to be partnering with the Tea Party Express," Rep. Bachmann said in a press release. "They have been a powerful ally in the ongoing fight against big-government solutions and wasteful spending. We're doing this broadcast to demonstrate that the hardworking citizens of this country have a powerful voice in Washington, even if they still aren't being heard in the White House."

Bachmann's remarks will also be streamed live at shortly after the President concludes his speech and the Republican response airs.

Traditionally, lawmakers who aren't selected to offer their party's official rebuttal give their opinions by making their way to Statuary Hall, a short distance from the House Floor. News media outlets armed with microphones and cameras, conduct interviews and send them out live all over the country.

A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, notes that tradition and says Bachman's rebuttal is no different.

"Whether it is through a press release, Twitter, the internet, on television, radio, via Facebook, or other means virtually every Member of Congress will share their thoughts on the President's State of the Union," said Boehner spokesman Michael Steel.

Oftentimes lawmakers will begin filing out of the House Chamber to give their reactions to reporters before the president has left the podium.
