State of the Union

I liken the speech to a boxing match. President Obama is like a boxer who has been taking punches – and not landing many of his own – during the first few rounds of the fight. During his first year in office, he struggled with major issues such as health care, as well as embarrassing incidents like the couple who crashed a White House dinner. With the State of the Union speech, he started fighting back. He called out both political parties, the news media and even the Supreme Court. The President didn’t deliver a knockout blow, but he made it clear that the fight is far from over and that, as the nation’s chief executive, he is in charge.
