State of the Union Address: Are You Watching Tonight?
Tonight at 9 pm, on most channels, is President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address. This is a night where you'll hear lines like, "We're doing better, but there is more work to be done." There will be a lot of applause and maybe a few boos, or lack of enthusiasm.
President Obama wasn't my first choice to have as president. My choice lost in the primaries. I really don't have an agenda as I write this.
What do you want clarified, answered or brought up tonight?
Five things that he will most likely talk about are:
- Income inequality/minimum wage
- The Affordable Care Act ("ObamaCare")
- Iran and Afghanistan
I don't believe tonight's speech will change anyone's mind on how they feel about the President and this being his second term. It is his legacy term, so I don't see a lot of talk about compromise tonight either.
Just hold your breath or clap and agree. Tonight is an obligation and in this time of social media and 24/7 news cycles, there really isn't anything that passes without debate in real-time.
