President Barack Obama’s Second Term Plans
As reported by NPR, President Obama is expected to use his State of the Union address as an extension of his ferocious Inauguration Day speech, which many saw as a challenge to the Republican party. Speaking to House Democrats recently, he had this to say:
“Even as I think it’s important to be humbled by the privilege of this office and the privilege of serving in the United States Congress, even as it’s important not to read too much into any particular political victory — because this country is big, it is diverse, it is contentious, and we don’t have a monopoly on wisdom, and we need to remember that — despite all those things, I think it’s also important for us to feel confident and bold about the values we care about and what we stand for.
“And I tried to do that in my inauguration speech, and I’m hoping that we all do that over the next four years.”
President Obama On The Economy
Regarding his approach to the economy, Obama told House Democrats, “Over the next four years, as I work with this caucus and every caucus, the question I will ask myself on every item, every issue is, ‘Is this helping to make sure that everybody has got a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share, and everybody is playing by the same rules?’ Because I believe that is a growth agenda — not just an equity agenda, not just a fairness agenda — that is a growth agenda. That is when we have grown fastest.
“And that means that what you’ll hear from me next week, I’m going to be talking about making sure that we’re focused on job creation here in the United States of America.”
