Shut 'em down: A State of the Union review

Posted By on Thu, Jan 28, 2010 at 5:55 PM

President Obama's State of the Union address was brilliant and reminded many of us of why we voted for him in the first place.

He has good ideas, strong ideals and really is looking to make a difference in the lives of many with his presidency. The address was also a good reminder of the work that needs to be done to get folks to work with each other, instead of working against each other.

Crossing your arms and staring down the president in protest at a state of the union address? That demonstration visually showed the American people what our president is up against. It is impossible to effect change when you're trying to work with people who don't want it — Democrats and Republicans alike. President Obama will keep moving forward in spite of this foolishness, which is exactly what we need in this country.
