It seems fit with elections right around the corner Obama had to give this years State of The Union Speech. Obama as we all know has made history by becoming the first African American president but will we only remember him for that or can we actually say he did more then just win the election? The 2012 State of the Union speech aired on January was a speech worth while, but seems that when I myself listened to the speech I felt like i was stuck in repeat most of the time. Don't get me wrong things were accomplished like our soldiers returned home from Iraq a first in nine years, and the auto industry,which had been on the verge of collapsing, became reconstructed saving millions of jobs and companies like general motors.
From a one person stand point i would have enjoyed something being done with our education system, an immigration reform for all the struggling students out there with no citizenship, and a solution to help those who are struggling to afford the roof over their heads. Obama definitely is a man who stands up for the hard working class community which is what i admire about him as a president, and in no way do i blame him for the things that were not accomplished these past four years. His speech made me feel that if we all keep trying our best and fighting for the immigration reforms, for a affordable higher education, a greener country we can accomplish all these things. This country wasn't built on effortless values nor was it built on greed or money it was built from the ground up with hard work which is what I feel Obama wants to preserve. Although his speech made me feel like i have heard it all before I respect that he will always support the middle class who work hard and want true change to happen.
Don't take my word for it hear his speech and make your own opinion:
