President Barack Obama delivered his 2014 State of the Union address tonight (Jan. 28) at the U.S. Capitol in Washington.
Reports the Washington Post:
President Obama sought Tuesday to restore public confidence and trust in his presidency after a dispiriting year, pledging to use his White House authority with new force to advance an agenda that Congress has largely failed to support.
In his fifth prime-time State of the Union address, Obama returned to a familiar problem–Washington’s bitter and stalemated politics, the complaint that drove his insurgent campaign for president in 2008.
But now, after five weary years in office, it was clear he saw it differently. Instead of pledging to fix the mess, the president was now promising to find ways around it, and change policies on his own authority.
