Filed by KOSU News in Politics.
February 13, 2013

Since what’s said and written about a State of the Union address on the morning after can determine what’s most remembered about such speeches, let’s look at Wednesday’s headlines:

– NPR’s It’s All Politics: “Obama To Congress: With Or Without You.”

– The New York Times: “Obama Pledges Push to Lift Economy for Middle Class.”

– CNN: “State Of The Union Brings Out More Of The ‘Same Old, Same Old.’ “

– Politico: “Obama Calls For ‘Common Sense’ Solutions.”

– The Wall Street Journal: “Obama Urges Action On Expansive Agenda.”

– Fox News: “Obama Presses For New Spending, Says Gun Control Bills ‘Deserve A Vote.’ “

– Bloomberg News: “Obama Paints Wider Role For Government In Middle Class.”

– BBC News: “Obama Pledges To Reignite Economy.”

– The Weekly Standard’s Fred Barnes (conservative): “There He Goes Again.”

– Firedoglake’s Kevin Gosztola (liberal): “Afghanistan Drawdown & the Covert Drone War.”
