Disappointed in Tone, Content of President's Address

State of Union Short on Solutions, Long on Rhetoric

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Rae Lynne Chornenky, president of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), issued the following statement regarding President Barack Obama's State of the Union address:

"If last night's State of the Union Address is any indication, the American people can expect another year of ineffective leadership and failed policies from President Barack Obama. Instead of presenting a cogent plan for bringing our nation together to solve our urgent fiscal and economic problems, the President chose to deliver a divisive campaign speech in which he ramped up the class warfare rhetoric.

"It’s just more of the same from a President who, as Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels said in his Republican response, was elected on a promise to fix our fiscal and economic crises, but ‘cannot claim that the last three years have made things anything but worse.’

"Fortunately, the American people have an opportunity to change course in November by electing a true leader who will unite us and place us back on the path to prosperity."

Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation and in several U.S. territories, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
