Katrina vanden Heuvel: What Obama Got Right at the State of the Union

Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel joined Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz on MSNBC's All in With Chris Hayes to examine the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union address. Vanden Heuvel praised Obama’s decision to use executive orders to bypass an immobile Congres, insisting that the defensive response of the GOP was out of line with the limited economic reforms the president proposed. “The Nation is not for extreme manifestations of executive power," she said, "but executive power in support of the jobless, in support of the planet, in support of the homeless…in my mind this is not about left and right, it’s about right and wrong.”
