WASHINGTON — Declaring “I don’t quit,'” an embattled President Barack Obama vowed in his first State of the Union address Wednesday night to make job growth his topmost priority and urged a divided Congress to come together to boost the still-ailing economy with fresh stimulus spending. Defiant despite stinging setbacks, he said he would not abandon ambitious plans for longer-term fixes to health care, energy, education and more.

“Change has not come fast enough,” Obama said before a politician-packed House chamber and a TV audience of millions. “I do not accept second-place for the United States of America. As hard as it may be, as uncomfortable and contentious as the debates may be, it’s time to get serious about fixing the problems that are hampering our growth.”

A chief demand was for lawmakers to press forward with his prized health care overhaul, which is in severe danger in Congress, and to resist the temptation to substitute a smaller-bore solution for the far-reaching changes he wants.
“Do not walk away from reform,” he implored. “Not now. Not when we are so close.”
Hoping to salve growing disappointment in a key constituency, Obama said he would work with Congress “this year” to repeal the ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in the military. But in a concession to concern about the move among Republicans and on his own party’s right flank, Obama neither made a commitment to suspend the practice in the interim nor issued a firm deadline for action.

Obama looked to change the conversation from how his presidency is stalling – over the messy health care debate, a limping economy and the missteps that led to Christmas Day’s barely averted terrorist disaster – to how he is seizing the reins.
The president devoted about two-thirds of his speech to the economic worries foremost on Americans’ minds, emphasizing his ideas, some new but mostly old and explained anew, for restoring job growth, taming budget deficits and changing a polarized Washington “where every day is Election Day.” These concerns are at the roots of voter emotions that once drove supporters to Obama but now are turning on him as he governs.
