January 28, 2010Jon Brooks Comments Off

PBS NewsHour tried something interesting this year for the State of the Union speech: The show opened up its video comments section on its YouTube channel and posted some video reactions from its audience. Some user videos:

American Association of University Women policy advisor expresses support for the speech’s focus on jobs, deficit reduction, and education; and disappointment in a lack of any mention of reproductive rights.

The speech was “littered with twisted facts” and “liberal interpretations of reality.”

Obama espoused a “centrist message” in a “shrewd speech.”

NYU student likes Obama’s proposals on student loans.

Oregon woman says speech re-gained her confidence in President Obama.
