Headline: “What Obama Said Tuesday Night”
Abstract: In the article, CNN summaries what President Barrack Obama said to the public in his State of the Union Address. The article summaries some of the many topics covered in his address like: immigration, gun control, climate change, minimum wage, troop withdrawal, debt, deficit, medicare, roads, bridges, congress, foreign policy, and America’s future. While this article only covers a summary of the presidents speech, It made me think of Jameson’s piece, “The Geopolitical Aesthetic.” While Jamesons work questions the boundary between the inanimate and animate in nature and present society, he as well discusses how our old frameworks don’t apply to our world today. I think that this is something that can be seen through politics especially today, since maybe old political frameworks, laws, or beliefs, just don’t work for our our world today, and I believe that to a certain extent this is what was being touched upon in Obama’s speech.
