God bless President Obama. His idealistic State of the Union address last night gave us hope of a better future. Even if the current Congress will not enact his proposals, one day, after the Republican’s hypocrisy is exposed, the American people will want to move forward to achieve his vision of a better tomorrow.
State of the Union addresses are typically a “laundry list” interrupted by applause, but President Obama’s promotion of “middle class economics” provided an overarching structure to the oration and represented an encapsulation of his vision in a clear and poignant way. He was able to speak directly to the American people, and with 300 million viewers, most of the country tuned in to listen to him.
