U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan is fairly active on Twitter, which can be a good thing. He can try to explain why Republicans act the way they do in Washington.

On Tuesday afternoon, hours before President Barack Obama’s final State of the Union speech, Ryan sent out a tweet that inflamed critics. And rightfully so.

As responses flooded in, they centered on a general theme: Hey, this is part of your job. You will get an hour or so of prime-time face-time sitting behind the president of the United States, so suck it up and be respectful.

But let’s let the tweets speak for themselves.

At the very least, Ryan has generated interest in how he will respond tonight during Obama’s address.

That’s a good thing especially if it will drive even a few more Americans to watch the speech.
