Specter Reacts to President's State of the Union Address


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) tonight made the following comments after President Obama's State of the Union Address:

"The President was right on target in making jobs the number one priority, with an emphasis on clean energy jobs. I liked his fighting spirit refusing to quit on health care reform. He struck a real chord with the American people saying it was imperative to deal with the deficit on spending and the deficit of trust. I was disappointed when the Republican leadership sat on their hands without applauding on his appeal for bipartisanship on some fundamental American values."
