    Obama keeps every hand gesture and facial expression very political. There is no real exaggerated hand gesture and their is a certain blank face with his facial expressions. The republicans along with many other Americans are very skeptical about the idea that Obama might be asking for a lot of money.

    As president and a political leader Obama must let the country know of many ideas that he has for our country, but he also has to find a way to smooth things over when he is asking for us to take risks. It is known that the country has gone through a recession which we are coming out of slowly, but he is asking for billions of dollars for certain projects he has. When Obama talks about the money solutions and giving money to companies he says that its not about handing out money its about “issuing challenges.” I believe that Obama says things like this, because he knows that what he is asking America for is something that we are not to comfortable with. Obama is asking the American people to put faith into ideas that are not completely reliable. As a nation that has gone through a recession and is not too sure of tomorrow; putting trust in a risky idea is not very simple. Obama understands that and therefore tries to smooth things over by using words of hope and reassurance.

    Although Obama’s speech is full of hope with solving the immigration issues, trying to make jobs for those who have lost theirs due to the recession, and trying to find ways to help students out with college; Americans are left in a cloud of confusion because it is not sure what to thing about the money that Obama wants to put out there.

    What does everyone think about the unrest in Egypt?

      I don’t understand how the Egyptian government was able to shut down the internet and all mobile phones. Did they hack into people’s connections or have their support? The same with Tunisia, their government hacked the passwords of all Facebook users in the country. My point is that it’s scary to know that the government can do this so what’s stopping one man from doing the same, would they have the power?

      For 30 years, there has been discontent with his government and at this point Mubarack should step down. The Egyptian people have responded with more protesting and demands of his resignation at his attempts of compromising. I support their cause but I’m not fond of the looting in the country, it takes away from their cause.

        I agree that the power of the Egyptian government is terrifying. The internet is our connection with the rest of the world. A government that in a way takes the world away from its citizens is very dangerous and seems to be on the borderline of tyranny. However, it is good that Egypt is not in an oppressed state that they accept such acts from their government. Though the current state of Egypt is tragic, it is better that they are objecting to their government thus embracing their rights as oppose to accepting their government’s actions silently. Overall, I’d rather a more peaceful manner of ending the discontent.

    The situation in Egypt is being anxiously followed by all global citizens concerned for the nation’s future. Egypt’s president, Hosni Mubarak, has been in power for the last thirty years. The U.S. believes that a democracy is what Egypt’s people deserve. However, Mrs. Hillary Clinton brings up a valid point. The Egyptian people do indeed deserve a democracy, but not one that lasts about six months and then is turned into a military dictatorship. I agree with Mrs. Clinton; a well thought out plan should be executed in order to ensure the people’s rights in any decision that will be taken for the nation. “It’s not a question of who retains power. . It’s how are we going to respond to the legitimate needs and grievances expressed by the Egyptian people and chart a new path.” Clinton does not show any sign of taking sides, she is commenting strictly on the general and obvious wants of the Egyptian people rather than the political and economic benefits resulting from a specific decision taken for the country.
