Description


U.S. President Barack Obama used his last State of the Union speech before the November election to paint himself as the champion of the middle class, by demanding higher taxes for millionaires and tight reins on Wall Street. One of the more poignant moments of President Obama's speech Tuesday night, was when he embraced Rep. Gabby Giffords on his way to the stage. Just a year ago, Giffords had been shot in the head and critically injured at the Tucson shooting that shook the nation.
