As every week from the White House, through their web, we can see and to read the President's speech.

In this new message, the president Barack Obama talks about its recent and surprising trip to Afghanistan, where he met there with the North American troops displaced. The President says that the signature of the agreement with the President of Afghanistan, is historical and it will be good to help to put an end to the war. It will also be good between both for a new relationship, and so that the Afghans soon are taken charge of their security. It is evident that it is pursued to end up with al-Qaeda, but to say that this is already visible, it is to toss too much optimism.

I also speak of Osama bin Laden.

The President urged to the Congress so that half of the expenses in the war, be used in paying the debt of the country. He wants some United States with a strong middle class with the same rules for all.

I like the paragraph a lot where he makes a homage to its adults:

“My grandfather, a veteran of Patton’s Army, got the chance to go to college on the GI Bill. My grandmother, who worked on a bomber assembly line, was part of a workforce that turned out the best products on Earth. They contributed to a story of success that every American had the chance to share in, the basic American promise that if you work hard, you could do well enough to raise a family, own a home, send your kids to college, and put a little away for retirement.”
