Obama’s Boise ‘sí se puede’ moment
U.S. President Barack Obama was in Boise on Wednesday for a post-State of the Union speech at Boise State. Obama focused on higher education, particularly on science and technology in higher ed and failed to mention anything about his current immigration reform efforts. But at one key moment during the half-hour speech an audience member shouted out, “¡sí se puede!” and Obama paused in his remarks to repeat the refrain.
Watch the clip below:
Earlier in the week, Obama largely glossed over immigration in his State of the Union address as well, saying only that he was not interested in re-fighting old battles on immigration with Republicans and that, “if a bill comes to my desk that tries to do any of these things, it will earn my veto.”
