President’s Speech Draws Criticism From Arkansas Delegation
A speech by President Obama Tuesday night didn’t change any opinions from Arkansas all-GOP delegation, all of whom said the nation’s chief executive offered little to persuade them to support his proposals.
Obama gave his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress before a nationwide audience. In the 6,600 word speech, Obama talked about a series of issues including the economy, foreign policy and politics.
“We are fifteen years into this new century. Fifteen years that dawned with terror touching our shores; that unfolded with a new generation fighting two long and costly wars; that saw a vicious recession spread across our nation and the world. It has been, and still is, a hard time for many. But tonight, we turn the page,” Obama started the speech.
