NEW YORK, January 13. /TASS/. US President Barack Obama speaks eloquently about grand things but his record often falls short of his soaring words, South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Hanley said after the Obama’s last State of the Nation address delivered on Wednesday.
"Barack Obama's election as president seven years ago broke historic barriers and inspired millions of Americans. As he did when he first ran for office, tonight President Obama spoke eloquently about grand things. He is at his best when he does that," Haley said.
"Unfortunately, the President's record has often fallen far short of his soaring words," she added. "As he enters his final year in office, many Americans are still feeling the squeeze of an economy too weak to raise income levels. We're feeling a crushing national debt, a health care plan that has made insurance less affordable and doctors less available, and chaotic unrest in many of our cities," Haley continued.
"Even worse, we are facing the most dangerous terrorist threat our nation has seen since September 11th, and this president appears either unwilling or unable to deal with it. Soon, the Obama presidency will end, and America will have the chance to turn in a new direction," she concluded.
