2:28 am
scott pelley. welcome to the "overnight news" i'm michelle miller. president obama went before joint session of congress to deliver the final state of the union address of his presidency. he didn't outline any bold new proposals, instead giving his upbeat assessment of his seven years in office and his hopes for the future. it was likely mr. obama's final primetime opportunity to speak to the nation before the party primaries begin next month. it comes at a time when seven in ten americans say the country is headed in the wrong direction. here is some of what the president had to say. >> tonight marks the eighth year that i have come here to report
2:29 am
and for this final one i'm going to try to make it a little shorter. [ applause ] and i know some of you are antsy to get back to iowa. but for my final address to this chamber, i don't want to just talk about next year. i want to focus on the next five years, the next ten years, and beyond. we're in the middle of the longest streak of private sector job creation in history. [ applause ] more than 14 million new jobs, the strongest two years of job growth since the 1990s, an unemployment rate cut in half. our auto industry just had its best year ever. [ applause ]
2:30 am
manufacturing surge that created nearly 900,000 new jobs in the past six years. and we have done all of this while cutting our deficits by almost 3/4. any one claiming that america's economy is in decline is peddling fiction. i believe a thriving private sector is the lifeblood of our economy. i think there are outdated regulations that need to be changed. there is red tape that needs to be cut. but after years now of record corporate profits, working families won't get more opportunity or bigger pay
2:31 am
banks or big oil or hedge funds make their own rules and everybody else's expense. [ applause ] and middle-class families are not going to feel more secure because we allowed a tax on collective bargaining to go unanswered. food stamp recipients did not cause the financial crisis. recklessness on wall street did. look, if anybody still wants to dispute the science around climate change. have at it. you will be pretty lonely. because you will be debating our military, most of america's business leaders, the majority of the american people, almost the entire scientific community, and 200 nations around the world who agree it is a problem and intend to solve it. but, i told you earlier, all the
2:32 am
decline is, political hot air. well so is all of the rhetoric you hear about our enemies getting stronger, and america getting weaker. i mean, let me tell you something. the united states of america is the most powerful nation on earth. period. [ applause ] period! it's not even close. it's not even close. we spend more on our military than the next eight nations combined. our troops are the finest fighting force in the history of the world. [ applause ] but as we focus on destroying isil, over the top claims that this is world war iii, just play into their hands. masses of fighters on the back
2:33 am
plotting in apartments or garages, they pose an enormous danger to civilians. they have to be stopped. but they do not threaten our national existence. the future we want, all of us want, opportunity and security for our families, a rising standard of living, a sustainable peaceful planet for our kids. all of that is within our reach. but it will only happen if we work together. it will only happen if we can have rational constructive debates. it will only happen if we fix our politics. >> the republican response was delivered by south carolina governor niki haley. >> barack obama's election as president broke historic barriers and inspired millions
2:34 am
as he did when he first ran for office, tonight, president obama things. he is at his best when he does that. unfortunately, the president's record has often fallen far short of his soaring words. as he enters his final year in office, many americans are still feeling the squeeze of an economy too weak to raise income levels. we're feeling a crushing national debt. a health care plan that made insurance less affordable and doctors less available. and chaotic unrest in many of our cities. even worse, we are facing the most dangerous terrorist threat our nation has seen since september 11th. and this president appears unwilling or unable to deal with it. soon the obama presidency will end, and america will have the chance to turn in a new direction.
2:35 am
talk about tonight. at the outset, i'll say this. you have paid attention to what has been happening in washington. and you're not naive. neither am i. i see what you see. and many of your frustrations are my frustrations. a frustration with a government that has grown day after day, year after year, yet doesn't serve us any better. a frustration with the same endless conversations we hear over and over again. a frustration with promises made, and never kept. we need to be honest with each other and with ourselves. while democrats in washington bear much responsibility for the problems facing america today, they do not bear it alone. there is more than enough blame to go around. we as republicans need to own that truth. we need to recognize our contributions to the erosion of the public trust in america's leadership.
2:36 am
played a role in how and why our government is broken. >> the cbs "overnight news" will be right back. (ugh.) does your carpet ever feel rough and dirty? don't avoid it, resolve it. our formula with a special conditioning ingredient, softens your carpet with every use. it's resolve, so you know it cleans and freshens. but it also softens. resolve. a carpet that welcomes you. and to clean pet messes,

2:38 am
telling the world what's happening and why. >> this is your eye opener to this day. >> cbs this morning. week days. the biggest lottery prize in history continues to grow ahead of tonight's powerball drawing. the powerball jackpot stand at more than $1.5 billion, that's right, billion dollars. excitement of course is growing internationally. thousand of canadians are pouring across the border to try their luck. demarco morgan is in niagara falls at the new york border with canada. >> niagara falls is behind me and an attraction that draws americans and canadians. now it seems as if canadians are using this hoping the crossing will transfer them to a destination where all their dreams will come true. while millions of americans
2:39 am
beat the odds, so too do canadians. >> i'm going to take my chances lake everyone else. >> reporter: she drove nearly two hours from her ontario home for a chance to become the world's next billionaire. >> we come here and drop a lot of money, we shop in the u.s. a lot. so we give to you. if the's time you give back. >> reporter: our neighbors to the north have been traveling from vancouver, toronto, montreal. >> the canadians coming like crazy here for the lotto. >> thank you. >> reporter: which they are legally allowed to do. >> you do not have to be a u.s. citizen to buy a powerball ticket. as long as you're buying at an aut ize autized retail location. the federal government can withhold 30% of gambling winnings paid to a foreigner. that's 5% more than for a u.s. resident. there could also be state taxes depending on where the ticket was purchased. new york has one of the highest state lottery taxes, more than 8%.
2:40 am
where canadians enter the u.s. for those not willing to make the trip there are online retailers willing to do it for them. the lotter.com. says it became unavailable after experiencing high demand. >> we don't endorse them. we tell everyone to, to, be careful. >> reporter: no matter which side of the border you are on, there is no escaping the one in nearly 300 million chance of winning. >> you know the odds are totally against winning. somebody has to win. so we can dream. >> reporter: jackpot is $1.9 billion in canadian dollars, long way from the jackpot of canada's lottomax, sits at $50 million. >> the son of mexican drug lord, joaquin "el chapo" guzman, grows by the day. "rolling stone" released the 17 minute interview. >> reporter: newly released mug
2:41 am
guzman shows the drug lord with his head and mustache shaved. authorities here at the prison where he is held indicated they're moving him from cell to cell to make it difficult for him to escape. and we're now getting a look at the violent shootout that led to his arrest. dramatic video taken by helmet camera and released by the mexican government shows the deadly gunfight that took place shortly before el chapo's capture. cbs news has learned when 17 mexican marines stormed the home early friday morning, the drug lord fled through a secret door concealed by a mirror. he hid in a tunnel until rain water forced him out. an armed guzman stole a car before being arrested. now tanks surround the maximum security prison where guzman is being held. is there a chance we will see el chapo escape again?
2:42 am
eyes of the world put on him. therefore, i don't think so. >> reporter: guzman's attorney says he hasn't been able to communicate with his client. which he claims violates the drug lord's rights. over the weekend, it was revealed that guzman's secret visit with sean penn and mexican actress kate del castillo helped authorities narrow down the fugitive location. new photos show the academy award winner arriving at a mexican airport for the october meeting. del castillo, was photographed in the country on several different dates. in one of the images a lawyer for el chapo is said to be handing her a cell phone. "rolling stone" magazine has come under fire for publishing the article in which penn details the encounter. penn says guzman reviewed the article before it was published but did not ask for any changes. monday, penn told associated press, he has nothing to hide.
2:43 am
publisher, defended the magazine's decision to give el chapo what he calls story approval saying it was a small price to pay. >> reporter: the u.s. is seeking to extradite guzman to face charges there. one mexican official said that process could take a year or more. >> the federal government's dietary guidelines have touched off a firestorm of controversy. the guidelines are updated about every five years. and critics say that gives food industry lobbyists plenty of time to sway the final results. anna warner has the story. >> reporter: the new guidelines from usda and department of health and human services are to tell you what to eat. critics say they're muddled and confusing and not by accident. more fruit and vegetables. less sugar. limited saturated fat. the key dietary recommendations from the government. >> even a small shift can make a big difference. >> reporter: new york university
2:44 am
nestle says there is something missing in the message. you say the junk food industry should kid the guidelines a win, why? >> because there is no direct messaging in the dietary guidelines that says don't eat junk food, don't eat processed food, don't eat meat, don't drink sodas. >> reporter: dietary guidelines affect food labelling to national school lunch program that serves more than 30 million kids each day. but instead of simply saying don't drink soda, she points out, the guidelines say, less than 10% of calories should come from added sugars. and instead of saying eat less meat, they say, less than 10% of your diet should come from saturated fats. >> the meat industry does not want the american government saying, eat less meat. that is unamerican. >> these are multibillion dollar industries that put a huge amount of effort not just in advertising but in changing policy. >> reporter: the doctor is
2:45 am
physicians committee for responsible medicine which is suing the government. claiming the egg industry used its influence to try to weaken warnings about cholesterol. the new guidelines dropped recommended limits but advise people to eat little as possible. >> the egg industry is paying universities where the people are then put on the committee to decide whether eggs are safe or not. that's a conflict of interest. >> now the usda told cbs this morning its process is robust and transparent. and the new guidelines reflect advancements in scientific understanding about healthy eating choices and health outcomes over a lifetime. >> the cbs "overnight news" will be right back. i took mucinex dm for my phlegmy cough. yeah...but what about mike? he has that dry scratchy thing going on. guess what? it works on his cough too. cough! guess what? it works on his cough too. what? stop! don't pull me! spoiler alert! she doesn't make it!

2:48 am
fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. >>you did it, yay! education in america at a crossroads. support for common core is fading fast. student college debt is through the roof. the new acting secretary of education, john king, sat down with nora o'donnell to discuss the hurdles he faces and the challenges he has overcome. they did it as secretary king's elementary school in brooklyn. >> are you a president? >> i work for the president. >> reporter: john king can already speak softly. putting his new role as acting secretary of education, he may also need to carry a big stick.
2:49 am
state a $700 million federal grant, which made him controversy followed when new york's education commissioner he rolled out common core standards. parents and teachers shouted him off the stage at a pta meeting in 2013. you ended up canceling further meetings like that? >> we restructured them. that meeting got to a place where it wasn't productive. folks were screaming, yelling. >> reporter: why were people screaming and yelling? >> some of it was the politics of the moment. some of it was misunderstandings that folks have. >> reporter: you know what the critics say, i don't need the federal government delivering standards in my state? >> yeah, it's important that folks realize that -- the standards are a matter of state policymaking. what we have said is that states need to have standards that push towards college and career readiness. >> reporter: at first, 46 states adopted common core standards. three states have since dropped
2:50 am
and 19 more have put them under review. king will half to continue the fight for uniform standards without overstepping the bounds of his federal role. you went from this school to becoming the first african-american education commissioner, the first puerto rican education commissioner of new york. what does that mean to you? >> i think it is a testament to what is possible if students have the right opportunities. teachers could have looked at me and said, you know here is an african latino student, difficult family situation, what chance does he have? they could have given up on me. but they didn't. >> so, this is your old classroom? wow. >> reporter: the teachers king called life saving taught here in brooklyn. >> my mom worked here and was a guidance counselor here. so it felt like home. and then, my mom passed away when i was in 4th grade.
2:51 am
role in my life. >> reporter: he was just 8 years old when heap lost his mother. 12 when he lost his father. once the highest ranking african-american educator in the country and later suffered from undiagnosed alzheimers disease. >> i can recall one night he woke me up at like 2:00 clock in the morning. said it was time to go to school. i can remember holding on to the banister in the house, saying, daddy, daddy, it is not time to go to school. not time to go to school. it's middle of the night. he didn't understand. i didn't know what was wrong. so that was a very, very difficult period. and, you know, it made school even that much more important. because school was the place where i could get beyond that. >> reporter: king went on to earn four ivy league degrees and co-found one of boston's best charter schools. he married and had two children. and now 41 years old, will become one of the youngest cabinet secretaries in history.
2:52 am

and for this final one i'm going to try to make it a little shorter. [ applause ] and i know some of you are antsy to get back to iowa. but for my final address to this chamber, i don't want to just talk about next year. i want to focus on the next five years, the next ten years, and beyond. we're in the middle of the longest streak of private sector job creation in history.

president broke historic barriers and inspired millions of americans. as he did when he first ran for office, tonight, president obama spoke eloquently about grand things. he is at his best when he does that. unfortunately, the president's record has often fallen far short of his soaring words. as he enters his final year in office, many americans are still feeling the squeeze of an economy too weak to raise income levels. we're feeling a crushing national debt. a health care plan that made doctors less available. our cities. even worse, we are facing the most dangerous terrorist threat our nation has seen since september 11th. and this president appears
