Locals: State Of The Country Needs To Improve

Many people from across Eastern Carolina sat down and watched President Obama's State of the Union Tuesday night.

We asked people in Greenville to share their thoughts on the state of the country. They had lots of different responses, but all agree things need to get better. The number one issue nearly everyone we spoke to mentioned is jobs and the economy. Some say the president is on track. Others say they just don't approve of the job he's doing.

"I think he's done a wonderful job and I think he's going to continue that. I think he's going to be re-elected president, and we're going to have the best time since Clinton," said Stanley Wagner.

"I don't hope for anything from him. We showed him in November and we'll show him again in 2012," said Edward Bizet.

Others we talked with said the president had a lot riding on Tuesday night's speech, especially if he hopes to get re-elected.
