(CNN) - I give him an A. As flat as his inaugural address was, this speech was the opposite - positive, vigorous, and forward-looking. The language was bipartisan, even if many of his proposals were not. His best moment yet as President - except he needs to get a tie which doesn't vibrate on television.
I whole heartedly agree
Why is Bobby Jindal saying the same things that Obama said in his speech, but yet he is against him?
Jindal is so funny to watch. This is his first campaign speech and he sounds so fake. Me and my husband are laughing so hard right now! Jindal's every facial expression looks so rehearsed! This is hilarious.
The man is so desperate.
Seems like Jindall drew the short straw in trying to rebutt this great speech. He may be the Republican party poster child but looks like he peaked too soon.
Thank you Toobin. A/ A- is a fair grade.
This is the best President this country has had in years. He has honor, and he brings back a sense of the American spirit that has been walked on for the past eight years. He is remarkable. Go Barack and Michelle, you have given all of us something to be proud of!
I hope ALL elected leaders work for all of us, Americans. I bet the Repubs don't listen considering they use a person of color to counter. Do the Repubs think we are stupid?
How do you rate President Obama's address to Congress?

Didn't watch 19% 818
Total Votes: 4235
Compare that to Jindal's speech: boring and crying. While I listened my mind kept reminding me of Sarah Palin at her worst with that up and down voice like high schooll kid.
What a shame. I didn't get one iota of what he said. He was talking all the time in an up and down monologue that constrated so much with the expressive and lively delivery of The President.
Watching Jindal. OHHHHHH MYYYYYY GOOODDD! I would have loved to hear HIS thoughts in HIS OWN WORDS. Limbaugh notes, RNC lies.
Wow....not ready for '12 or '16 or '20 or....
A+ for you Toobin – It was an excellent speech.
While you're serving as the RNC back seat driver, could ya give a fellow American some help?
We have listened to 35 days of talk, filled with plenty of rhetoric and cliches. When will we see some action. Then and only then will I let myself hope for change. As it is, its more of the same.
I give him an A+ and a huge thank you and God bless our president and God bless our country and her people. I am 50 years old and this MAN is the most amazing president of my time. Governor Jindal must not have watched his hopeful message.
Again President Obama presented himself very eloquent, articulated his speech very well, without saying anything different that we already knew. It remains to see if the stimulus going to work.
I was reminded of why I voted for this man tonight.
It did nothing for me. It hit all the appropriate "points," but I struggled to maintain interest after 45 minutes or so.
and Holder agrees I am sure
Shocker, coming from Jeff Toobin. When did you come up with the phrase "best moment yet"? Was it this morning? Was it a few days ago? Maybe it was just before Jindal wrote that speech, also days before the address.
it amazes me that every single Republican president has left us in financial ruins. The one president that did well was a democrat.
Reagon did nothing.
Bush I or 2
Thanks but no thanks.
At last, a thinking President that is taking action to get us out of this collapse. Thank God..
Straight A! :)
Great Speech Mr. President! If Bobby Gyndhal (sp) is the best the Republicans can come up with, they are in serious trouble in 2012. Good news!...lol.
I couldn't believe the Republicans got out of their chair so many times. As for the rebuttal, canned garbage given with the facial expression of someone on psych medications. No true emotion. It was poor acting. At least he admitted that Republicans abandoned their principles. I think the country needed a speech like that. If the stock market doesn't go up tomorrow, we should shut it down for a month and fire every trader.
