Further Reaction to the SOTU

Karl Rove has an article this morning in the WSJ--"Obama vs. Ryan: The Choice Is Clear."

"President Barack Obama's State of the Union address and Rep. Paul Ryan's Republican response offer competing visions of the country."

For the ultra-left point of view, we have Paul Krugman's op-ed piece at The NYT about Paul Ryan's response, that it was "as bad as you might expect," using "cooked statistics about federal spending" and other "curious" assertions. Really Paul? Thanks for playing.

Here's how Paul Ryan's Republican response was played over at Huffington Post: "Speech Addresses Spending, Health Care and More." The post includes the text of Ryan's prepared remarks released prior to the president's speech.

Then there's the smirking, big-mouthed little weasel, Rep. Anthony Weiner's completely predictable response: "I just needed a drink" after GOP response."  I'm not sure why I'm posting this here, except that he's such a consistently solid example of what I don't like about the left.

Then I found this at American Thinker by Lloyd Marcus: "Bachman Hits Home Run for Tea Party." This guy is pretty fired up, saying that "Americans are awakening from their 'Obama Night of the Living Brain Dead' zombie state of mind." Oh, would it be racist to mention that Marcus is a black conservative? Or isn't the right supposed to mention such things? I know it was fine for the left to use that all day long to get Obie elected, but maybe it's not OK for the right to mention this. I'm still trying to figure that out.

Listen to Newt Gingrich on the Laura Ingraham Show: "Obama's SOTU 'Fundamentally Dishonest.'" I think it was a very clever speech that was fundamentally dishonest.
