The Republican candidacy of Newt Gingrich is getting a reality check today in Florida. There was a time, after the South Carolina primaries results, when the candidacy of the former speaker of the US House of Representatives seemed probably inevitable. Today however, if the polls from political gurus watching the Florida primaries are anything to go by, Candidate Gingrich may not be the favorite candidate to carry the Republican flag come November 6, 2012.

Was the President of the United States of America ever more inclusive? Is the President ever not more preemptive of what is to come? Was the President ever not more Presidential? For whatever changes that may come, Obama proved himself to be very executive and firmly decisive to make change a reality in this speech. Historically, many state of the union addresses are a collection of achievements and projections; however, Obama introduced something yesterday, a promotion of the manufacturing industry, an industry, that we have a comparative advantage over many countries. The sliding scale of manufacturing industry in this nation is now being challenged and Obama has shown to be a huge drum major for espousing the benefits of manufacturing in the growth of America's Economy.
