QOW - Using the videos from above and the articles to respond to this week's QOW.
In his State of the Union Address from 1/27, President Obama outlined his agenda for 2010. "Let's meet our responsibility to the people who sent us here. To do that, we have to recognize that we face more than a deficit of dollars right now. We face a deficit of trust -- deep and corrosive doubts about how Washington works that have been growing for years." (Obama, 2010)
Citing specific evidence from the articles above and from the video, do you believe that Washington and our government can get past the partisanship and do what's best for the American people in 2010? Cite specific evidence (Bash et al, 2010) in your response by citing the author of the story and the year it was published. Your citations must be included in this week's question of the week to receive any credit.
This is due by Friday, February 5 by 11:59 pm.
