Excerpts of the President’s State of the Union Address

We face big and difficult challenges.  And what the American people hope – what they deserve – is for all of us, Democrats and Republicans, to work through our differences; to overcome the numbing weight of our politics.  For while the people who sent us here have different backgrounds and different stories and different beliefs, the anxieties they face are the same.  The aspirations they hold are shared.  A job that pays the bill.  A chance to get ahead.  Most of all, the ability to give their children a better life.

Gaggle by Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton aboard Air Force One en route Tampa, Florida, 1/28/10

MR. BURTON:  So, for starters, let me tell you a little bit about Florida.  Upon arrival, Governor Crist, Mayors Dyer and Iorio and Senator Bill Nelson and Alex Sink will all meet us.  The President will visit a hangar where crewmembers are doing work on a KC-135 Stratotanker.  That’s a plane that’s used to refill other planes that are in the air that have been flying missions to and from Haiti.
