After Rep. Heath Shuler talked about staying away from making C-Span speeches except when it is really important and that none of the C-Span speeches win Oscars, Gosar jumped in to talk about the tendency for Congresspeople to jump up and down with too-frequent standing ovations whenever the President who matches their party label finishes a line.
I'm the newbie here. But, maybe what it'll all orchestrate is that the true meaning of when you stand for an important point. I think what we've gotten to is a point that we exemplify (amplify?) everything that is said in the speech. It's past that point. The American people want to have some concise language. And, maybe we'll have a little less standing ovation, and really mean it when we actually stand. (about 18:10 mark)Gosar also delivered a one-minute prepared text (about 9:25 mark), and answered a question by saying that noone had instructed the Republicans on how to behave (about 19:10 mark).
(The C-Span video is - for some unknown reason - "not embeddable". This link should take you to the 18:05 mark where Rep. Gosar jumps in.)
