Congress gave President Obama a pretty rousing ovation when he talked about American troops during his speech on Tuesday night, but at least one Republican congressman wasn't completely satisfied. From Texas Rep. John Culberson's Twitter feed:

We are at war - seems to me honoring our troops should come on page one rather than the end of the speech (sic)
