SALT LAKE CITY — The chairman of the Republican National Committee said President Obama’s State of the Union address was a huge “disappointment.” Reince Priebus made the statement while speaking to Grant and Amanda on Utah’s Morning News.

Priebus said the President lives "in an alternative universe" by acting like everything is OK overseas. He also attacked the President’s description of the economy, saying under the President, the middle class is hurting more today than they have in decades.
