The State of the Union is the address presented by the President of the United States to a joint session of the United States Congress, typically delivered annually.

President Obama will deliver his 6th SOTU tonight at 9:00 PM Eastern Time from Washington DC. It is always interesting to see what goes on and how people react to what the president has to say. I am a supporter of President Obama and there have been things I have agreed with and other things I have had questions about. He deserves respect in this task that he must perform. He will have a much tougher room this year. We shall see what happens.

(Please keep responses and comments respectful and thoughtful, thank you)

President Obama Gives The State Of The Union Address Tonight

Standard

President Obama will be addressing the nation tonight as he delivers the first State Of The Union of his new term. This address is to give a report of the condition of the country and to lay out The Presidents legislative agenda. Of course it requires help from congress.

The constitution requires that it be delivered annually although it doesn’t have to be given in speech form. Woodrow Wilson was the first president to give a speech to both houses of congress. Its usually given in late January or early February.

In tonight’s address the president has everything from the economy, the environment, gun control and other issues. What he says will be scrutinized by his own party as well as rebutted by the opposition.

I will watch with great interest and what he says is important to each of us. No matter what there will be some who like what he has to say while others not so much.
