The most valuable life lessons I learned at an early age came from growing up on a dairy farm in Cache Valley. There, my father taught me the value of hard work, education, and good citizenship. I also gained a love and respect for the animals we worked with daily. I still enjoy saddling up a horse for a ride in the mountains with my friends.

SALT LAKE CITY — Stephen Hawking has said that “intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” Tuesday will be President Barack Obama’s seventh State of the Union speech to Congress, but it will be his first to a Congress controlled in both chambers by Republicans. What will he say?

This month not only marks the start of the new year, but it also represents the start of the new 114th Congress. The last few years have been a prime example of Washington Gridlock – which was frustrating for all of us, especially members of the House of Representatives who passed almost 400 bills that died on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s desk. These were good bills, many of which had strong bipartisan support.

This week represents not only the start of a new calendar year, but also the start of the new 114th Congress. The last Congress was often viewed as a prime example of Washington gridlock — a time when partisan bickering replaced statesmanship. It was frustrating for all of us, especially members of the House of Representatives who passed almost 400 bills that died on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s desk. These were good bills, many of which had strong bipartisan support, but because they had originated in a House that was controlled by Republicans, these bills did not even merit a vote in the Democrat-controlled Senate.

The result of our long fight against terror is that our nation has become war weary and understandably reluctant to get into another fight.

For a man who prides himself on winding down two wars, President Barack Obama certainly has started up a lot of new ones.

There’s the war on coal. The war on gun owners. Even the war on ceiling fans.

At least, that’s how it looks from the Republican side of the aisle.

The State of the Union address presents the president with a unique opportunity to not only lay out his legislative goals, but to set the tone of the political discourse for the coming year. When a president vilifies the other party, we can be sure gridlock will follow. But when the president expresses a willingness to find common ground, the other party often reciprocates.
