Political Analyst Previews Obama's State of the Union Address
Indiana Political Analyst Brian Vargus says the economy is the most important issue for President Obama to address in his State of the Union Address.
Vargus says the debt ceiling debate remains the major battle between Democrats and Republicans and the President will likely appeal to the American public to put pressure on their representatives to support the President's economic initiatives. Vargus says many of the President's economic advisors are trying to avoid another recession.
Vargus says given current political division in Washington, the President has until next year at best to accomplish anything of substance.
Vargus says if the President adopts a tougher stance it may have some impact. He says for the most part, the President has been pushed to the middle. He adds Obama will address gun control, healthcare and crime, but the economy is the big, unavoidable issue.
