Progressives React to Obama's State of the Union

For the sixth time of his presidency, Obama offered his assessment of the nation and lays out his vision for future policy, but voices on the Left had a few things to say as well.

President Obama delivered his sixth State of the Union address on Tuesday night to a packed audience inside the Capitol Building. Video and the text of his prepared speech follow.

Alongside the text of the speech are reactions from dozens of progressive journalists, policy experts, and justice advocates who—while watching attentively—sought to push beyond the glossed-over sentiments contained in the president's remarks.

Common Dreams has selected comment from progressive and critical voices who took to Twitter on Tuesday evening to respond to the president's speech in real time
