Reaction to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address:

___

“No feature of the Obama presidency has been sadder than its constant efforts to divide us, to curry favor with some Americans by castigating others.”? Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels.

___

“The greatest priority for Congress is creating jobs, so I was glad to hear President Obama address this as a major priority of his. I strongly agree that we need to focus on strengthening our economy for the long haul so that we don’t continue to experience boom-and-bust economic cycles where the schemes of a wealthy few devastate the lives of millions of middle class families.” ?Rep. Gene Green, D-Texas

___

“Tonight will mark another chapter in the misguided policies of the last three years? and the failed leadership of one man.” ? Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

___

“The president is correct, we cannot go back to an economy based on sending American jobs overseas, allowing bad debt to accrue and creating accounting rules that show profits where none actually exist. The American dream is at stake, and we must make certain it is passed on to the next generation of Americans.” ?Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md.
