Mixed record for Obama’s State of the Union goals

WASHINGTON (AP) — As President Barack Obama prepares to deliver his annual address to Congress, many goals he outlined in previous State of the Union speeches remain unfulfilled. From reforming immigration laws to meeting monthly with congressional leaders of both parties, the promises fell victim to congressional opposition or faded in face of other priorities as the unruly realities of governing set in. For Obama, like presidents before him, the State of the Union is an opportunity like no other to state his case on a grand stage, before both houses of Congress and a prime-time television audience. But as with other presidents, the aspirations he’s laid out have often turned out to be ephemeral, unable to secure the needed congressional consent or requiring follow-through that’s not been forthcoming.

@jasoninohio, I assume you have a link to a non-partisan site to verify every one of those claims? I am by no means an Obama fan but there are things that are on your list in no way accurate. For instance the 76% of Americans opposing healthcare reform. Many of those were Dems that wanted MORE of a universal healthcare system than the semi-privitized one that was passed. Also, how are Americans less safe? Bin Laden is dead and I don't recall any terrorist attacks occuring on U.S. soil since Obama took office. Making a blanket list of statements like that is just plain ignorant. And the divisiveness of this country is do to left AND right wing media outlets. Bring back the fairness doctrine where news programs had to give equal amounts of time to both sides of an issue instead of listeneing to an hour straight of a one sided attack.
