The President of the United States of America, Barack Obama- put in WORK last night during his State of the Union address. Though it most definitely was a launching of his 2012 Presidential campaign, the contents and proposed strategies were well conceived.
GO IN FOR THE ENTIRE SPEECH…
The evening began with a heartfelt hug from Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. The representative from Arizona, shot in the head by the loon during her public appearance that claimed the life of a nine year old girl-held onto the President that solemnly showed support in spite of all that she’d endured. The Congresswoman will resign within the next few days to focus on recovery.
Of particular note were the President’s committment to 1) bringing jobs stateside, 2) requiring all states to reduce drop out rates in education by mandating that all students continue education until the age of 18 or until graduation, 3) getting jobs for veteran’s and the best of all 4) getting big business out of the pockets of politicians!
Many more motivational proposals were offered during the speech including establishing a consumer watchdog to protect our day to day fiscal function. It all sounds amazing! It will however take all of us to move forward in NATION BUILDING.
