ST LOUIS (LALATE) – President Obama’s State of the Union Address 2012 is Tuesday night. But Obama released a video preview moments ago detailing to news the subjects of his speech. Obama tells news that Tuesday’s State of the Union Address 2012 will focus on jobs, the economy, the middle class, and big ideas, rather than short-term fixes. Obama’s 2012 State of the Union Address will be able to be watched via live streaming video online.
In Saturday’s video preview, Obama told the country that his State of the Union speech is still not finished. “I’m actually not finished writing it yet. So there might be a few late nights between now and then.” He told news that the speech in many ways will be a “bookend to what I said in Kansas last month.” Obama is referring to the Dec. 7 in Osawatomie, Kansas speech in which he talked about plans for the middle class.
Obama said he will continue the Kansas message about “the central mission we have as a country, and my central focus as president.” The President said the economy is still not rebuilt fully. He said he will focus on “rebuilding an economy where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded, and an America where everybody gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everybody plays by the same set of rules.”
Obama told news that the country is allegedly at a cross-road for the middle class. He says the nation can go in two directions if not handled properly. “We can go in two directions. One is towards less opportunity and less fairness. Or we can fight for where I think we need to go: building an economy that works for everyone, not just a wealthy few.” He said he will tell the nation how “to talk about how we’ll get there.”
The president said this will be a make-or-break moment for the middle class, and for people trying to get into the middle class. American manufacturing, American energy, skills for American workers, and a return to American values will be among his subjects, he told news.
