GEORGE WILL, FNC: I was in my annual rant about the staleness of the state of the union spectacle, which is in a way degrading to all participants. I think tonight a semi-star was born, I think Senator Ernst from Iowa helped put a fresh face on the Republican Party. I think the president gave a curious speech saying we're all going to get along an
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: At every step, we were told our goals were misguided or too ambitious; that we would crush jobs and explode deficits.

President Barack Obama delivers his sixth State of the Union address, at the United States Capitol, January 20, 2015.
PRESIDENT OBAMA, STATE OF THE UNION: As Americans, we have a profound commitment to justice — so it makes no sense to spend three million dollars per prisoner to keep open a prison that the world condemns and terrorists use to recruit.

PRESIDENT OBAMA, STATE OF THE UNION: No challenge — no challenge — poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change. 2014 was the planet’s warmest year on record.

CHUCK TODD, MSNBC: It is amazing how this state of the union and the debate surrounding it really is so campaign message oriented, and you know, Josh says, hey, the president, you know, he's run his last campaign.

JOSH EARNEST, WH PRESS SECRETARY: I think what you can look for tonight from the president is a focus on middle class economics.
