David Brooks' take on the Republican response...
Feb 13, 2013

...to the State of the Union speech.

Marco Rubio's speech advocated "economic freedom" and little else.

The Republicans need to step up their game plan and offer some real solutions, Rubio failed to do that tonight.

As to Obama's speech, I personally I cannot remember a SoU speech that garnered so much bipartisan support. I thought it was one of the best I've heard as he offered up compromise on entitlements in exchange for additional revenue and also tax reform.

I hope that there will be more cooperation in our House and Senate in the coming months....the US has plenty of fiscal problems to address.
