Obama comes out fighting
Issued on: Modified:
Obama has set out his stall for re-election - for his right-wing critics, the State of the Union was "shamefully" partisan, while on the left many say the rhetoric was on the button - but he doesn't have the concrete policies to back it up.

For the Washington Post's right-wing columnist Jennifer Rubin, the speech was "shamefully partisan" in its attacks on the rich.
The Atlantic thinks he's finally hitting the right targets - but he doesn't have the concrete policy to back it up, whereas the Huffington Post reckons we forget he does have an economic record to be proud of - America would be in a much worse state if he hadn't made the right calls.
And The Guardian has a piece on some unlikely Egyptian revolutionaries - Bedouin tribesmen who have occupied a Red Sea resort.
