When did blatant public rudeness become ok?

How many of our venerated Senators and Congressmen and women were heads-down sending tweets while our new President was addressing Congress?  In a time of national turmoil, our leaders were more focused on looking hip and au courant than paying attention to the important messages and strategies from our top leader. 

Can you imagine sitting within 100 feet of the President of the United States while he delivers an important address and you choose to focus on typing on your Blackberry?   What if, like a professor in the classroom, he stopped his comments until he had everyone’s attention?  That would make for some good TV!

Not knocking Twitter at all…. just the unbelievablely rude people who couldn’t wait 1 hour to get their tweets out. And how many people were really following those tweets anyway?
