Were Republicans actually listening?

After President Obama completed his presentation of the State of the Union Address, the GOP blindly raced to criticize the presentation and the president.

As we look at GOP comments we wonder how those Republicans can be so totally confused.

Ted Cruz claimed Obama said nothing about Islamic terrorism.

In fact,

Obama said he needs congressional authority to use force against ISIL.

Senator Ted Cruz must have been sleeping when Obama said American leadership, including military power, is stopping ISIL’s advances.

Cruz claimed Obama did not bring up a discussion on immigration.

Where was he when Obama talked about the three year reprieve to parents who are in the U.S. illegally?

President Obama made several other claims that the GOP will ask interns to do research on.

U.S. businesses have created more than 11 million new jobs.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says it is true.

The U.S. has seen the longest stretch of uninterrupted private sector job growth.

The president claimed that 6.4 million jobs were added to the economy since he took office.

(In a similar time frame only 4.5 million jobs were created when George Bush was in office.)

Obama said,

“our younger students have earned the highest math and reading scores on record.”

The National Assessment of Educational Progress agreed.

It is time for GOP voters to demand more accuracy and “truthiness” from their candidates.
