Obama's call for "our generation's Sputnik moment"

January 26, 2011 by legitgov

Obama's call for "our generation's Sputnik moment" [Yeah, more corporate giveaways and tax breaks for the rich.] 25 Jan 2011 In a House chamber draped with an air of bipartisan civility after the Gabrielle Giffords shooting, President Obama sought in his State of the Union address Tuesday night to recast the looming showdown with Republicans over deficits and spending as an issue of American competitiveness. "This is our generation's Sputnik moment," Obama said, referring to the former Soviet Union's launch of a space satellite in 1957 that served as a wake-up call to the United States, much as China's rise is seen as a threat to U.S. economic leadership now.
