The New York Times' Andrew Rosenthal says he hasn't seen Obama so combative since before his election - and it's a good thing too.

For the Washington Post's right-wing columnist Jennifer Rubin, the speech was "shamefully partisan" in its attacks on the rich.

The National says Egypt's revolution has a long way to go on its first anniversary - while al Masry al Youm looks at the fight for justice of the families of those killed protesting.
