STATE OF THE UNION PREVIEW: In Email to Supporters, Obama Highlights Economy and Jobs, Education, Deficit Reduction, and Bipartisanship

“Now to do that, we’re going to have to out-innovate, we’re going to have to out-build, we’re going to have to out-compete, we’re going to have to out-educate other countries.”

In a video emailed to supporters over the weekend, President Obama outlines some of the major themes that he will cover in his State of the Union address on January 25. Obama stresses that the economy and job creation will be his principal focus, but he also mentions education, debt reduction, and bipartisanship.

In the video, Obama calls the last two years “as tough as anything we’ve gone through since the Great Depression.” He says that the economy is “growing again,” but there is still “a lot more work to do.”

For that reason, Obama says that his “number one focus is going be making sure that we are competitive, that we are growing, and we are creating jobs not just now but well into the future.” He says his goal is to make the United States economy the “most innovative, dynamic economy in the world.” Part of that is making sure that American students are able to compete with workers anywhere in the world. “Now to do that, we’re going to have to out-innovate, we’re going to have to out-build, we’re going to have to out-compete, we’re going to have to out-educate other countries,” he says. At the same time, Obama acknowledges that the nation has to deal with its deficits and debt in a responsible way and make the government “leaner and smarter.”
