Obama State Of Union Speech Reflection

Good Essays
“ The Future we want ? Will only happen if we fix our politics…” During the State of Union speech Obama spoke on many of these topics such as raising minimum wage, expanding civil rights, ensuring prosperity and insurance for generation to come.This was a really good speech and very persuasive. While the speech was happening many notes were taken and i witnessed how almost half of the political part was clapping ( the democrats) and the other half ( the republicans) did not fully agree with Obama. In Obama's speech he says that his goal was to have a growing economy that works well in favor for everyone. That the role of the government should be to make sure that the system is not rigged by the wealthy individuals like monopolies. This part grabbed my attention since all we talk a lot about the monopolies in world history. …show more content…
Immigrants make up America every one is an immigrant besides the Native americans in my eyes.The Natives were here first so therefore it is there tland. Obama disagreed with trying to divide immigrants not allowing them to come into America, Immigrants have been coming to america to fulfill their dreams. I am an immigrant who came here when i was five so that i could have a better life. Why on earth would America try to prevent anyone from having the American dream. Allowing refugees into America would be almost idiotic. We do not know what the refuges intentions are and trusting them would not be the best decisions. Obama's speech truly moved me and his plans for curing cancer, which in my opinion has already been discovered. All of these words said in Obama's speech will hopefully start taking action. “ I stand confident that the state of union is strong” says Obama. If Obama is confident then we should be too, right ? I don't think

    On February 12th, 2013 President Barack Obama gave his state of the union address to the nation, the first of this year and since his re-election. I had mixed feelings about this speech as I go into that in more detail later. I like the general direction of where Obama was trying to go with it but I must say that I did have a few points that I disagreed with that he presented. But some of the major things which I did like was the minimum wage increase and talks about gun control. I am going to just…

The reverend made statements that Obama called dismissive when what the world needed most was unity to overcome the continual racism in the country.
