    Mike Steel said Obama's proposals on Thursday "will rise or fall on their own merits," suggesting a GOP response was not needed.

    That's all anyone could ask for. If Reps do this, good for them and Obama.

    Yup.

    You know the strategy with this right? No response by the reps means 2 things IMO

    1) The dems can't claim the reps are trying to "fight against their job package" as they won't have a critical response to it
    2) It puts the onus 100% on the president to ensure his plan will succeed.

    I agree, if they do nothing............they've said a lot. The speech is just another campaign speech. I hear he's gonna be talking down Congress, why should they feed his self imposed fear of losing in 2012???

    Either that or they think that by affecting to ignore the president they can marginalize him in the mind of the electorate.

    or they think they take the attack ammo away from the dems....you know "well we presented something but the reps shot it down so the bad economy is the reps fault not ours, please re-elect me"

    Naw, they're tired of hearing the same old thing, over and over. I'd say they were quite united in not supporting his campaign rhetoric. ;)

    Why should the GOP respond to a campaign speech?
