Salutations to all,
Please take note that English is not my first language,
I have look around many Editorials in many countries and languages and here is the synthesis of my observations.
I would suggest for a better understanding that you imagine yourself as a French Québécois who is near and linked with the U.S. while at the same time linked to Europe via its Culture.
As an outsider the State of the Union speech focused on the U.S.,
zooming the attention into United States Politics
instead of an International unfolding Policy.
It felt Good and refreshing for most Nationals Medias.
Up and Swift as usual the President has set the stage for November Election by conveying the People resentment towards Bankers and Associates, and sketch a clear picture of the struggles of the less wealthy and the middle class. In other words the Plain Truth.
He clearly shown the narrow relations of Wall Street and the Conservatives.
He had clearly said face to face that he would regulate swiftly the last Supreme Court Judgment.
He keeps the Focus on Health Insurances reforms and a more equitable Health Care System.
But there is one incongruity that was perceived by 'Viewers', how can he give a Hug to M. Geithner when he is confronting Wall Street behaviors.
It was not qualify as a Great Speech but a real Domestic Good one, it was a carrier speech.
Personnaly I loved his Crescendo of 3 slogans that sounds like a Mantra.
We got to get it Right,
Play by the Rules,
Lets get it done,
