SOTU Reax From the Right

Krauthammer: “This was one of his weakest speeches: flat, uninspired…. late Clintonian minimalism.”

Pete Peterson: “We must couple current efforts to stimulate the economy with a long-term plan that reduces the ballooning interest costs … Spending cuts or revenue increases alone will not be enough.”

Senator DeMint: “Tonight’s speech should have been called a State of the Stimulus, and the President should have admitted that it failed.”

Senator Rubio: “While I was encouraged by the President’s support for an earmark ban and will work with him towards that goal, his call for a mere budget freeze does not go far enough.”

Senator Thune: “The President’s proposal to simply keep spending at its current level for the next five years is too little, too late.”

Douglas Holtz-Eakin: “… a series of broad, sweeping vision statements followed by narrow, more-of-the-same policy prescriptions.”
