A family in New Orleans gathered to watch President Bush's State of the Union speech Tuesday night.

The Robinsons were among the first to return to the Ninth Ward after Hurricane Katrina hit. They react to what the president said — and didn't say.

Robert Robinson says, "This city is still suffering... [President Bush] made promises that I don't see being kept. It needs to be addressed."
