7 things you didn't know you didn't know about the State of the Union

Washington (CNN) – If you tune in to CNN’s coverage of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night, you’ll find plenty of intelligent reporting, insightful analysis, and a robust and thoughtful discussion of the most important issues facing our nation.

You won't find any of that here. But where else will you find the answers to burning questions such as, “What color necktie did Obama wear in 2011?” and “What the heck is that thing in front of John Boehner?”

Ryan supports Christie, disagrees with Cruz’s approach on budget

(CNN) – Rep. Paul Ryan, a Republican from Wisconsin and former Republican vice presidential candidate, distanced himself from one of the most conservative leaders of his party and expressed reluctant support for one of its most embattled figures.

At the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Ryan took a swipe at Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, for not recognizing "reality" and, when pressed, expressed moderate support for Gov. Chris Christie, R-New Jersey.

The chairman of the House Budget Committee and potential presidential contender in 2016 made the comments in a one-on-one conversation with Texas Tribune editor-in-chief Evan Smith on Thursday.

Rep. Paul Ryan gives U.S. a 'failing grade' in war on poverty

(CNN) - On the heels of the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson’s call for an "all-out war on human poverty," Rep. Paul Ryan said efforts to reduce poverty should happen outside think tanks in Washington, and instead in the communities where the fight is succeeding.

The Wisconsin Republican said he would give the United States a "failing grade" in efforts to curb poverty since Johnson's declaration five decades ago.
