Congressional reaction to President Bush's State of the Union address breaks down along partisan lines. Republicans in general are satisfied with the speech, although some fiscal conservatives chide the president for the growing federal deficit. Democrats denounce Bush's plans to make his tax cuts permanents and call the speech short on domestic priorities. Hear NPR's Andrea Seabrook.
