the union state address

-I think obama was talking about people and in the government who he is trying to get to work together as one nation to make the environment better then what it is.
-The main idea of his speech was about the government and how to make it better. Like he wants all people to have jobs to take care of their families.
-I think that it is positive but can also be negative to certain people. I say it was positive because it's a learning lesson to some people like instead of them doubting there selves for not getting a job. This speech can be a wake up call as in people believing that even if the econmy is low. That  doesnt mean you cant take the time and effort to look for one. It can be negative because  some people might think that obama saying that nobody is doing what they need to do.
