Do you think the president’s address will be a unifying one that will help move the country forward?
Monday, February 11
Advanced information from the various news organizations indicates that President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday will be different to his inaugural address last month. According to ABC News, it is expected to focus primarily on jobs and the economy and will outline new initiatives. He is, however, expected to touch on immigration, gun violence and climate change. ABC News reports that new initiatives will call for more spending to get the economy moving, but the spending is expected to be modest and will likely be offset by spending cuts elsewhere. What are you looking for in the president’s speech and what do you think he could say to help unify the country?
