The National Journal says Newt Gingrich struggled without the crowd to back him up last night. It also says that ‘Angry Newt’ took the night off. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney was on the constant attack which received mixed reviews, at best. Romney released his tax records and in the non-shocker to anyone who pays attention, he is rather wealthy. This morning Politico ran ‘Five Reasons‘ why Romney’s tax records matter. Finally, just in case you missed it, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul also stood on the stage last night.

Note: We will have an open comment thread up for tonight’s State of the Union address at 9:00 pm EST.
