Weekly Address: President’s Blueprint Includes Renewal of American Values

In his weekly address, President Obama discusses the blueprint he put forward this week in the State of the Union Address for creating an economy built to last. After focusing on American manufacturing, American energy, and skills for American workers during each of the last three days, he used his weekly address to highlight his commitment to a renewal of American values. The President is challenging leaders in Washington, DC to follow the model set by our men and women in the military, end the gridlock and start tackling the issues that matter — without regard for personal ambition.

In his third State of the Union Address [http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/25/president-obama-delivers-2012-state-union] on Tuesday, the President outlined his vision for “an America that lasts”—one that will bring about a new era of American manufacturing, and promote homegrown and alternative energy sources—and presented a bueprint [ http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/24/blueprint-america-built-last ] to achieve that vision. Check out this video that goes behind the scenes [ http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/24/2012-state-union-behind-scenes ] as President Obama prepared the speech.

He echoed the President’s message that we need to commit to train workers with the skills they will need to compete in the growing sectors of our economy.

*Talking Energy in Las Vegas: *
From a UPS facility in Las Vegas, the President spoke [

http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/26/everything-you-need-know-president-obamas-blueprint-american-made-energy ]. “[Even] with all this oil production, we only have about 2 percent of the world’s oil reserves,” the President said, “So we’ve got to have an all-out, all-in, all-of-the-above strategy that develops every source of American energy—a strategy that is cleaner and cheaper and full of new jobs.”

*#WHchat: *
Throughout the week, more than thirty administration officials have answered questions about President Obama’s State of the Union Address and issues Americans care about through a series of Office Hours on Twitter [

On Monday, the President welcomed the Boston Bruins [

Their triumph, the President said, “proved that teamwork is everything.” After their visit to the White House, the players led a hockey clinic–affirming that being a champion doesn’t end when you hang up your skates.
