State of the Union
January 25, 2011 § 3 Comments
I loved the speech. My only question is can the government deliver? Here are some quotes if you missed it.
“When a child walks into a classroom, it should be a place of high expectations and high performance.”
“It’s not just the winner of the Super Bowl who deserves to be celebrated, but the winner of the science fair.”
“This is our generation’s Sputnik moment.”
“We need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world. We have to make America the best place on Earth to do business.”
“Every day, families sacrifice to live within their means. They deserve a government that does the same.”
“And this July, we will begin to bring our troops home.”
If you preach it, you must live it. If you agree with President Obama that we must celebrate winner of science fairs, like we do Super Bowl contenders, let’s invest more in book and science fairs than football jerseys. Lets raise the attendance of Spelling Bees.
You want to put politics aside and work on a plan to bring the conomy up, good luck. I can’t flip the TV to a channell that doesn’t mention liberal and conservative, or campaign ads attacking the opposite party…that seems to be the only importance. Everyone’s agenda is to convince a political leader is a socialist, and to side with them, the conservative (See: Glenn Beck).
I disagree President Obama. There is no way this is our “generation’s Sputnik moment.” We praise Kim K, Soulja Boy, and Gucci Mane, give anyone a TV show, and fight for the legalization of drugs. This is the generation of BET: where the people who hate it, actually LIVE what they show on TV!
Overall it was a pretty vague speech. Nothing new was said, was a repeat of the 1st State of the Union. We know exactly what we need to do, let’s act on it.
What are your thoughts on the State of the Union?
