State of the Union

Obama told the nation that he will use the powers of his office to fulfill the vision he so effectively articulated on the road to the presidency. 

The State of the Union (SOTU) address can be considered an institutionalized “bully pulpit” for the President of the United States. As expected, the President forcefully made his case for new proposals to Congress before a primetime television audience.

President Obama’s Inaugural Address and State of the Union speech have one thing in common.  The emphasis is on jobs and America is changing.

On a night where President Barack Obama addressed government investments, gun control and a drawdown of troops in Afghanistan, the need to overhaul the U.S. immigration system commanded five paragraphs in Tuesday’s State of the Union speech.
