Obama will surely talk about the growing number of jobs during his years as president. He is also expected to note actions aimed at improving the health of the environment and passage of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare. And he will note the 2009 government bailout of American automakers General Motors and Chrysler. He considers that financial rescue effort his biggest success, according to USA Today.
