From Super Tuesday, to avoiding a government shutdown and even Cookie Monster complaining about ‘shrinkflation," there were a lot of great moments this week in the world of politics. But, the biggest moment was perhaps President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech, the third of his presidency. 

The president is looking to shore up support as his rematch against former President Donald Trump appears more likely. 

The 81 year-old incumbent's new stance can best be encapsulated by the phrase, “Old lions can roar.” 

Scripps News political analyst Steve Schmidt expands on the president’s speech in his Political Plays of the Week.
