State of the Union Round Up.

I thought the speech was one of the Presidents best. Even with the childish hissing from Democrats, the speech was a success! GopInsight has this:

  • CNN Instant Poll: 86 Percent Had Positive Or Somewhat Positive Response To President Bush's State Of The Union Address.

    CNN's Wolf Blitzer: "We're just getting our instant poll as we call it, CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll. We started polling after the speech. Look at this, overall reaction to the address: very positive 60%, somewhat positive 26%, only 13%, Andrew [Sullivan], said they had a negative reaction to the President's State of the Union Address. Are you surprised by at least in this initial CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll, such a -- 86% were either positive or somewhat positive?" (CNN's State Of The Union Address Coverage, 2/2/05)

    MSNBC's David Shuster: "Just About Every Democrat I Spoke With Away From The Cameras Confessed This Was A Very Good Speech The President Gave, That It Hit The Rights Notes, That It Was Emotional." (MSNBC's "Hardball," 2/2/05)

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA): "I Think There Are Parts Of It That Were Soaring, That Were Overarching, That Were Very Impressive." (CNN's "Larry King Live," 2/2/05)

    NBC's Tim Russert: "I Think The Speech Tonight Will Be Remembered More For The Passion And Emotion Of The Words About Iraq." (NBC's "State Of The Union Coverage," 2/2/05)

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews: "I Think It Was One Of The Good Ones. I Think It Was A Powerful Speech. I Could Tell The Whole Night It Was Growing." (MSNBC's "Hardball," 2/2/05)

    Presidential Historian Michael Beschloss: "If Anyone Had Any Doubt Before Tonight About The Sweep Of George Bush's Ambition To Be Remembered As A Great President, Just Listen To The Speech That We Have Just Heard…He Sees His Presidency In Very Grand Terms." (CNN's "Larry King Live," 2/2/05)

    The Weekly Standard's Fred Barnes: "I Think He Made A Strong Case [For Strengthening Social Security]." (Fox News' "State Of The Union Coverage," 2/2/05)

    NPR's Juan Williams: "I Reacted To [The Speech] Emotionally … I Thought It Was A Terrifically Suggestive Speech In Terms Of Speaking About Generations And Speaking About America's Commitment To Young People." (Fox News' "State Of The Union Coverage," 2/2/05)

    John Meacham, Newsweek Managing Editor: "I Think It Was A Remarkable Speech." (MSNBC's "Hardball," 2/2/05)

    National Review's David Frum: "I Thought It Was A Magnificent Speech. I Thought It Was Incredibly Powerful, Powerful… Backed Up By Realities Like The Iraqi Vote." (MSNBC's "Hardball," 2/2/05)

    MSNBC's Norah O'Donnell: "What He Did Tonight Was Challenge Congress In A Way That He Hasn't Done Before, To Save And Strengthen Social Security, It's On The Verge Of Bankruptcy. And What He Did Was Put Down And Make Clear Some Specifics…" (MSNBC's "Hardball," 2/2/05)

I cant understand the Democrats anti-SS reform. Bush invites them to the table and they hiss. Clinton knew SS was in trouble, Gore addressed it, and so did John Edwards.I wish I had the opportunity to participate in a private account like Bush is wanting. I think a good plan could be achieved if the hissing stops and WORK begins. I think most working Americans know that a private account will earn them a greater yield on their money.
