As President Barack Obama prepares to make his case to voters for another four years in office, a few excerpts of his speech have already been released.

Expect Obama to address key issues like jobs, the economy and taxes, which "will have a huge impact on our lives and our children's lives for decades to come."

From the Huffington Post:

“On every issue, the choice you face won’t be just between two candidates or two parties.

“It will be a choice between two different paths for America.
“A choice between two fundamentally different visions for the future.

“I won’t pretend the path I’m offering is quick or easy. I never have. You didn’t elect me to tell you what you wanted to hear. You elected me to tell you the truth. And the truth is, it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades.

The president will portray himself as a uniter who will help the country rally around accomplishing a set of goals. Obama will speak about creating one million new manufacturing jobs by the end of 2016, cutting oil imports in half by 2020 and address the rising cost of college tuition.
