WASHINGTON (KMOX) – Silly and sophomoric is the way Republican Todd Akin described the co-mingling of house and senate members during the president’s State of the Union address.

Akin , who sat with noone from the Democratic party, felt it served little purpose:

I think the idea was to make it look like everybody would stand…I don’t know what the objective was but it seem a little contrived.” said Congressman Akin. 

Congressman Lacy Clay sat next to a new Republican from Pennsylvania .  Even Clay had some criticism:

“There was a lot less applause and it was a lot less time consuming, kind of made for TV” said Congressman Clay.

Clay thought the President scored high for his jobs creation plans.   Akin said it was nothing more than a call for more spending.
