Obama's State of the Union 2012
I stayed up long today to watch the State of the Union by President Obama live. Having lived in the United States of America, this annual event has caught my attention already back at the time. I myself have introduced the State of the European Union as a similar annual speech I give to the European Parliament and all EU citizens. President Obama's rhetoric is impressive to watch and listen, but I think my 2011 State of the European Union address was also quite a good speech. It would be interesting to explore whether it will be possible to make it a similar prime time event so that all Europeans could watch it. Now I will try to get a short sleep: the College is meeting at 9 a.m. this morning.
