The missing Mr. Rubio

Barack Obama

Your coverage of President Obama's speech was interesting. There was lots of praise from the state's Democrats and only a short comment from our lone Republican congressman ("Obama outlines ambitious agenda for second term," Feb. 13).

My paper, however, must have been missing a page because I was unable to find any mention of the Republican response ("Rubio calls for Medicare changes, balanced-budget amendment," Feb. 13).

Did it not happen, or are you just intentionally ignoring Mr. Rubio?
