This Tuesday Baraka Obama President of the United States address the rest of us with his State of the Union Address. What does this address mean for this rest of us read this article to find out. The main point of this event was for Obama to address the United States concerns about our economy and national security. The second reason is a little more personal Obama wanted to do some damage control due to the fact that he could be out of office soon. The idea’s Obama gave to solve the problems I addressed above are great but unlikely to gain the support needed to be put into action. Obama also used technology and globalization to absolve himself from any blame from the country economic condition. It is my conclusion that The State of The Union Address was used mostly for Obama to protect himself and a small part to ease our fears about the state the nation is in.
