The 2012 State of the Union Address: An America Build to Last


Posted by Larry Bullock on Wednesday, January 25, 2012

In my opinion, this was President Obama's best speech in a long time. This election will be an uphill battle for the President and he will need our help this time more than ever. For those of you out there who have been paying attention, the Republican party is attempting to roll back the clock on everything from union rights as proposed by Gingrich and Romney to the reinstatement of states rights and the ability of businesses to segregate. This could happen if Ron Paul has his way.

Those of good will, whether they be black, white, gay or straight, have a common purpose this election season. The GOP are masters of the politics of division. As Democrats, we have never become proficeint in these type of battles but we better learn in a hurry. There is so much riding on this election. The state of the middle class will we continue to have one. Social Security and Medicare are being attacked by the other side, and they are gaining momemtum. Will higher education be attainable only to the wealthy? It is your choice America. Lets get to work!

“In Pakistan, al Qaeda’s leadership is under more pressure than at any point since 2001. Their leaders and operatives are being removed from the battlefield. Their safe havens are shrinking.” - President Barak Obama, 2012 State of the Union Address
