“I Have No More Elections to Run” Obama Boasts in State of the Union Address

The Address Marked 6 Years to the Day that President Obama Was Sworn In

A triumphant President Obama clearly reveled in the fact that he no longer had to convince people to vote for him in his 6th State of the Union address, his second-to-last.  In a comical moment, he announced, “I have no more elections to run” before boasting, “I know because I won them both!”  As for the actual issues, the President made it clear he would stand firm against the Republican Congress, clearly with one eye on the Democrat’s hopes in 2016.

President Obama threatened four separate times to veto legislation from the Congress.  He also spent a good deal of time talking about growing the middle class.  Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee slammed the President’s “class warfare rhetoric”, saying, “that’s no presidential!”
