Former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison said Sunday President Barack Obama’s address Feb. 12 must talk about the jobs and the economy.

“I was disappointed in the inaugural speech, that the No. 1 issue in America right now, jobs and the economy, was hardly mentioned,” Hutchison said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

The Texas Republican said one of the best things about not being in the Senate any more is not having to be present for the nighttime speech.

“I just wish so much that we would have a moratorium on standing and let everybody listen,” she said, referring to the frequent bursts of applause from the floor.

Regarding Dr. Ben Carson’s Bible-based remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast on Feb. 7, Hutchison said “it was a great message” and the takeaway is “political correctness has just gone beyond bizarre.”
