It was all about innovation, unity and progress at the State of the Union speech Tuesday night.
President Obama discussed the creation of new innovative economy, a better educated workforce and improving the nation’s infrastructure along with controversial issues such as health care reform, the repeal of “Dont ask, Don’t tell” and immigration reform.
Obama emphasized investing in research and jobs and compared today’s generation to that of the late 1950s and 1960s.
“We didn’t just surpass the Soviets; we unleashed a wave of innovation that created new industries and millions of new jobs,” he said.
Obama argued that only through new education models and by promoting science, technology and math in schools would the U.S. be able to compete with emerging markets.
