Obama's speech will expose partisan divide on spending

By the CNN Wire Staff

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech will emphasize "winning the future" for America by strengthening the nation's ability to compete in a changing world, according to White House talking points provided Monday by a Democratic source.

Tuesday night's annual speech to Congress, a nationally televised event considered the president's biggest address of the year, brings together the three branches of government for an assessment of where America stands and where it is heading.

"The president will lay out a plan to win the future by out-innovating, out-educating and out-building the rest of the world," said the White House talking points. "He will talk about the need to take responsibility for our deficits, by investing only in what makes America stronger and cutting what doesn't, and reforming our government so that it's leaner and smarter for the 21st century."
