The President sent a preview video of his highly anticipated address to supporters via his Organizing for America e-mail contact list. He said in part: ““My No. 1 focus is going to be making sure that we are competitive, and we are creating jobs not just now but well into the future…These are big challenges that are in front of us. But we’re up to it, as long as we come together as a people — Republicans, Democrats, independents — as long as we focus on what binds us together as a people, as long as we’re willing to find common ground even as we’re having some very vigorous debates.”
