SIOUX FALLS – The Democratic member of South Dakota’s congressional delegation says President Barack Obama is taking the country in the right direction, but the two Republican members say Obama’s State of the Union address did not show leadership.

Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson says he likes Obama’s focus on jobs, the middle class and renewable energy, though he says he’s disappointed the president didn’t mention the farm bill during his Tuesday night speech.

Republican Rep. Kristi Noem and Sen. John Thune say Obama failed to offer solutions to out-of-control spending and the nation’s debt. Thune says Obama needs to get serious about solving the nation’s problems.
