In a way to rally the nation to a new era of creative greatness, President Obama in his State of the Union address called on Americans to put aside partisan differences and unite around a common goal of global competitiveness.
“This is our generation’s Sputnik moment,” Obama said, likening the U.S.’s current economic situation to the days when the Soviets beat America into space in the 1950s. He called for new investments in education, medical research and technology in hopes of spurring a similar wave of U.S. innovation that the nation experienced in its space race with the Soviets.
“To win the future, we’ll need to take on challenges that have been decades in the making,” Obama said, adding “the world…and the rules have changed.”
To Obama’s speach, we say, “BRAVO”!
