Here’s the Full 2013 State of the Union Address (VIDEO)
Matt | On 13, Feb 2013
In case you missed President Obama’s annual address to the nation, here is a handy clip for you to check out.
The president’s State of the Union Address was filled with promises and proposals on education, deficit reduction, foreign affairs, clean energy, and even gun control. Speeches like this are designed to be strategic, big-picture opportunities for the president to share his ideas. It’s still, however, our lazy Congress that must act on them or dismiss them.
Overall, the president got a bit more bold in this address than in State of the Union speeches in the past. As an incumbent president who doesn’t face re-election, the gate is wide open for him to challenge Congress, make executive orders, and really push what this country NEEDS to get done.
In a perfect world, I would love to see at least half of these items come to fruition. I might have more luck hitting the Powerball, though…
