Local Reaction to President Bush's State of the Union Address

NewsChannel 11 held a forum of people who felt confident in the Bush administration. One of the guests said after seeing the reaction of Democrats, it will make for an interesting election year.

"I think on many points it was very partisan. I dennoted lack of respect for the office. Not only were they not polite, they were negative. A lot of head shaking. And it's probably happened before. I think the partisan lines were drawn pretty clearly of what I saw," said Greg Jones, American State Bank Vice President.

"It's very 'stay-the-course' speech.  Stay the course on what he's doing for the war on terrorism, the economy, education and the principles he's put forth.  So what he's trying to tell the people, we should still stay the course.  We are defeating the war on terror abroad and be vigilant as a country," said Will Davis, Texas Tech Student.
