Previewing Obama’s State of the Union address (in four infographics)

Previewing Obama’s State of the Union address (in four infographics) | APGOPO | Scoop.it
Four infographics that tell us a lot about what Obama has said and will say.

Jordan Marsaw's insight:

The article pays special attention to the projections for Obama's SOTU address, as well as comparing his speech to the speech of former President, George W. Bush. A key point is made by the bar graph that conveys the fact that the President will spend a considerable amount of time on the economy, spending much less time on education.

I find this article to be very interesting in how it used the several infographics to break down what was of importance during Obama's 5th State of the Union address. I really enjoyed all of the grraphics, especially the graph displaying the words of the union, which compares Bush's highly used words to that of Obama's. I think this portayed how what is of high concern has shifted from one presidential term to another. Back through 2000-2007, Americans focused on the issue of security with Iraq and terrorism. Today there is a parallel with security being of importance, but now it is much more domestic with hope for tighter gun control laws. This graph just especially showed a movement of issues and how they never really go away, but flow through a cycle of importance. I think Obama's address was very convincing and filled with good plans for the future. He made sure to make every American feel the same way through his focusing on the economy (manufacturing jobs moving to US), education (better prepared graduates) and partisanship - which is truly the main issue in government.

In this speech Obama focused more on the econmy and jobs. He spent roughly half his time on the issue that effects every one in the United States. He used the word taxes and unemployment more than ever. His also talked about new alternative energy that could help the economy. So everything went back to the economy. ECONOMY, ECONOMY, ECONOMY.

I thought this article was very interesting because it shows the progression of the importance of the economy to not only the presidency, but also the citizens of the United States. Throughout the years we have focused more and more on economy and this is shown in Obama's 2013 SOTU when he spends almost half of the time focused on economy. Although he only spend 7 minutes on education, what he said was very insightful and moving, so much so that it is a part of the speech that I vividly remember. I also found it very interesting to look at the difference between the vocabulary of George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Bush very rarely talked about education, while Obama tries to always focus some attention on it. I think not only this observation, but the other observations about their vocabulary are very important. The most interesting part of the article was seeing that President Obama said "America" the most in 2012.

SCOOPABLE 9/18

The article altogether had a really interesting viewpoint because it broke down Asian Americans even more based on their religious affiliation and how that affected their political views. The article basically conveys the the dichotomy in the political views of the Asian population, and the most interesting part (for me) was the correlation between religion and political leanings.

Democrats Scramble to Blame GDP Plunge on Republicans

Democrats Scramble to Blame GDP Plunge on Republicans | APGOPO | Scoop.it

Politico has dubbed the negative growth numbers “Obama’s GDP headache,” calling it “bad news for Obama” because it contradicts the president’s “we’re-finally-roaring-back-narrative.” CNBC analyst Rick Santelli was more blunt. “We are now Europe,” said Santelli. “When you act like Europe, you get growth rates like Europe."

There has been a GDP contraction and Democrats are not blaming it on Obama's trillions on federal spending. The economy experienced negative growth at the end of 2012 with a -.1 % rate. Ouch. It's bad news for Obama and for our economy. His "roaring back story" is not being bought anymore. Our GDP is expected to grow a mere 2.5% in 2013. 

"The U.S. Department of Commerce defines the gross domestic product as "the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States." 

Obama might be wrong, but this definition is true.
