Texas Sen. Ted Cruz decided to video his response to the president's State of the Union speech off the cuff in the Capitol, standing next to a statue of Stephen F. Austin. But it turns out that there's a reason that many members rehearse and pre-record their remarks. . .
According to the New York Daily News, "The Republican Texas Senator was criticizing President Obama’s speech but lost his train of thought, as a staff member filmed his comments outside the House chamber.
About 54 seconds into his remarks, Cruz stopped and signaled that he didn’t get it right."
“'Meh, let me start over,'" he said in the post, saved for posterity by Mediate," a news and media blog.
The aide uploaded the entire commentary, flubs and all, to youtube, where media watchers pounced on it. However, it was taken down, replaced by the edited version.
