Locals Prepare for President's State of the Union

Posted:

DOVER, Del. - After North Korea announced they were testing a nuclear bomb, Bob Herbert looked to President Obama for his reaction.

"He has said he's not going to allow them to perfect the bomb and so I think that's probably a good idea," Herbert said.

The actions of the isolated country has Beverly Williams calling on President Obama for condemnation but not a military response.

"I would not expect a retaliatory response gesture on our part but I think it's something we've always got to keep our eyes on," she said.

On issues closer to home, Brandon Bowers says the President needs to oversee a full economic recovery to have a successful second term.

"I'm employed but I have a lot of friends and family who aren't and they're looking for good jobs and it just betters our country when people are working," Bowers said.

Beverly Williams wants to see tighter purse strings for the government. "The governments gonna have to quit expanding and start saving money. I don't think sequestration is the way to go," she said. "I think just limited spending."
