The State Of The Union: Democratic Response

Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius offered the Democratic response to President Bush�s State of the Union address. Here are our favorite parts:

�In this time, normally reserved for a partisan response, I hope to offer something more � an American response. A national call to action on behalf of the struggling families in the heartland and across this great country, a wake up call to Washington on behalf of a new American majority.� [Audio, :21]

�Governors in both parties and a large majority of the Congress are ready, right now, to provide health care to 10 million American children as a first step in overhauling our health care system. Join us, Mr. President. Sign the bill and let�s get to work.� [Audio, :16]

�America�s foreign policy has left us with fewer allies and more enemies. Join us, Mr. President. In working together with Congress to make tough, smart decisions, we will regain our standing in the world and protect our people and interests.� [Audio, :17]
