Republicans Swing Back After State of the Union Address
Washington Post – President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night prompted an array of reactions from conservative critics, whose divergent responses mirrored the fractures on display this year in a bruising Republican presidential primary.
The responses began early in the day, when Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney delivered an address billed as a “prebuttal” from a shuttered factory in Florida. It was followed by an official response from the GOP by Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, who disappointed many Republican establishment figures last year when he announced that he would not join the presidential race.
