President Obama Final State of the Union Speech

Keyword or Terms: President Obama State of the Union Speech; The White House Press Releases; Going out in Style

This is probably one of the best statements President Barack Obama ever offered in the State of the Union Speeches. It is so compelling, I had no option but to represent it verbatim:

"America has been through big changes before – wars and depression, the influx of immigrants, workers fighting for a fair deal, and movements to expand civil rights. Each time, there have been those who told us to fear the future; who claimed we could slam the brakes on change, promising to restore past glory if we just got some group or idea that was threatening America under control. And each time, we overcame those fears. We did not, in the words of Lincoln, adhere to the “dogmas of the quiet past.” Instead we thought anew, and acted anew. We made change work for us, always extending America’s promise outward, to the next frontier, to more and more people. And because we did – because we saw opportunity where others saw only peril – we emerged stronger and better than before.

What was true then can be true now. Our unique strengths as a nation – our optimism and work ethic, our spirit of discovery and innovation, our diversity and commitment to the rule of law – these things give us everything we need to ensure prosperity and security for generations to come."......President Obama

We've got to reduce the influence of money in our politics, so that a handful of families and hidden interests can't bankroll our elections. - Barack Obama


Going out in style and honor!
