SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Members of South Dakota’s all-Republican congressional delegation say President Barack Obama needs to focus more on solving the nation’s problems.

Obama gave his final State of the Union speech Tuesday night, using it to summon an affirmative vision of his administration and for the future.

Sen. John Thune said South Dakotans don’t want to hear about Obama’s legacy - they want to hear his ideas for addressing issues such as the economy.

Sen. Mike Rounds said he thinks an “overwhelming majority” of South Dakotans are dissatisfied with the direction of the country, and that Obama’s speech “lacked any serious ideas for working together.”

Rep. Kristi Noem said the picture painted by Obama in his speech “is a starkly different image than what most people see in their own backyard.”
