CNN PRODUCER NOTE EWillies1961 told me, 'Washington must stop creating continuous self-inflicted wounds and vote to support middle class policies as he outlined them. After all, his policies while fairly progressive are not as Liberal as the voting public really wants when queried policy by policy. Many of the policies are either supported by both parties already or were one supported by Republicans til the President liked them.'
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
The president’s speech at his inauguration was aspirational. The State of the Union speech was actionable. The speech was a progressive speech that even a conservative should like when they are out of control of government.
