HotLine – Wicker applauded less than the rest of the GOP

The GOPer who appeared most disinterested in many of the applause lines was Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS), who stayed seated at times when most of the rest of the GOP section rose. At times he was joined by a House GOPer from his delegation who was also elected in ’08, Rep. Gregg Harper. Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) also avoided much of the applause, but he was more engaged than he was during Obama’s health care speech before the joint session last year when he stayed seated for nearly the entirety of the speech with arms crossed.
