Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The speech President Barack Obama gave before being sworn into office for a second term got mixed reviews from American citizens.

We talked with the hosts of the "Top Story" radio show, which airs from 8:00 to 10:00 weekday mornings on AM 1310 KLIX. The hosts shared the responses from both the Republican and Democratic viewpoints.

Kelly Klaas says, :Probably not surprisingly around here, the reaction that we got from the inaugural speech was, 'It's more of the same, it's more socialism, it's more bigger government, it's more spending, and that type of thing.'"

Co-host Jill Skeem says, "It reminded us what the Constitution is truly about. And when he was going through rights for everyone, that really struck a chord. That yes, there are people in this country you might not agree with their lifestyle or what they do, but they should have the same rights as all Americans."
