Comments on Obama's 'State of Union'


ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Following President Barack Obama’s first State of the Union address, National Federation of Republican Women President Sue Lynch said:

"Last night, the President had a genuine opportunity to communicate with the American people and to show leadership on the tough issues facing our country. Instead, he resorted to using the same partisan rhetoric to explain his administration’s undeniable lack of progress in revitalizing the economy and creating jobs for Americans.

"We congratulate Governor Bob McDonnell on his excellent response, which discussed the role of good government policy in spurring economic growth and strengthening the private sector by enabling American innovation and entrepreneurship to create new jobs. The Governor also questioned the administration's handling of suspected terrorists and emphasized the need to put the protection of U.S. citizens first.

"President Obama claims he is looking for new ideas to solve problems. The National Federation of Republican Women hopes he will start listening to common sense ideas, such as those Governor McDonnell articulated."
