President Barack Obama delivered his State of the Union address to the congress and the American people. He spoke of his frustration from the inability to unite the parties. Overall the talk was positive and took a hopeful energy, but he admitted the political divide is greater now than it was when he took office as a 47-year-old.

The POTUS expressively said, “America is the most powerful nation on earth – nobody else is even close!” After seven years of being at the vanguard of the United States Executive branch he spoke of the accomplishments that he would hope to realize as he moved out of his penultimate year in the Whitehouse. It was clear the dirge had not yet started in the areas of criminal justice, equal pay, raising the minimum wage and strengthening the middle class as he committed to not to coasting to the finish line.

“It’s one of the few regrets of my presidency, that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better,” Mr. Obama humbly said as he continued “a president with the gifts of Lincoln or Roosevelt might have better bridged the divide.”

The speech marked his final State of the Union address, critics are saying this was his most clarion voicing since he was a candidate for the high office.
