Obama inaugural speech defends liberal goals

Published: 01.22.13, 11:25 / Israel News

US President Barack Obama faced plenty of fresh challenges as he began the first working day of his second term Tuesday after previewing an ambitious liberal agenda in his inaugural address in which he pledged to tackle climate change and protect America's social safety net.


In his speech Monday before nearly a million spectators, Obama confronted conservative opponents in Congress. But the president will quickly confront three fiscal deadlines that demand cooperation with the Congress, including raising the debt ceiling, which the House of Representatives scheduled for a vote on Wednesday.
