Given that the text of President Obama's State of the Union address leaked online before it was delivered, reactions to what the President had to say came quickly.
Here's a quick cheat-sheet for who said what about the President's forward-looking speech.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus released a statement reading in part:
"I appreciate President Obama joining Republicans and the American people in calling for fiscal restraint and a new focus on job creation, but rhetoric alone will not eliminate the job-crushing deficits and record unemployment that continue to hold back economic recovery. Too often, the American people have heard similar commitments to job creation and deficit reduction from this President only to see those efforts shelved when they conflicted with his political agenda."
From the office of House Speaker John Boehner:
"As I've stated in the past, when the president is willing to work with us on the people's priorities, we'll be ready to work with him. Unfortunately, even as he talked about the need for fiscal discipline, President Obama called for more 'stimulus' spending without making a commitment to the cuts and reforms the American people are demanding. Adding to our debt and pushing us closer to bankruptcy for the sake of more 'stimulus' spending will not make our nation more competitive. A partial freeze is inadequate at a time when we're borrowing 41 cents of every dollar we spend, and the Administration is begging for another increase in the debt limit."
This from Democratic Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer:
"President Obama is right that investments in innovation, education, and infrastructure remain vital to creating jobs, strengthening our international competitiveness, and taking advantage of emerging economic sectors, such as clean energy and advanced vehicles. This agenda encompasses House Democrats' Make It In America agenda: a plan to rebuild American manufacturing and productivity, and to lift up our middle class so that they can succeed in America."
This reaction came to NBC News from Massachusetts Republican, Sen. Scott Brown:
"It wasn't a ra-ra speech but it was balanced and it hit on a lot of good points. As a Republican I'm looking forward to working with him and finding some common ground to move our country forward."
