American Crossroads Statement on Obama’s SOTU Speech

WASHINGTON – American Crossroads today released the following statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union speech.

Please credit the statement below to Steven Law, president and CEO of American Crossroads:

“Obama’s speech tonight hit four themes, all with campaign purposes – education because he’s terrified of losing the student vote, immigration because he’s terrified of losing the Hispanic vote, manufacturing because he’s trying to stem his losses among blue collar workers, and foreign policy because it’s the only place he can celebrate even modest success. Barack Obama made clear that he want Americans to ignore the last three years and double down on an agenda that has yet turn the economy around. This speech demonstrated that Barack Obama is ignoring his last three years of failure, and is hoping Americans will ignore it too.”
