John Boehner At Obama Address: House Speaker Stays Seated During Applause (VIDEO)

There were many standing ovations during President Barack Obama's 2013 State of the Union address on Tuesday, but few from House Speaker John Boehner.

Boehner declined to stand during several key moments of Obama's address, even while Vice President Joe Biden stood next to him. Those moments that did not move Boehner to his feet included bipartisan applause lines for enhancing childhood education, a vote on immigration reform, protecting the right to vote, honoring our wounded warriors and putting our country before our party.

Watch a video of Boehner at State of the Union above.
