State of the Union Address Is TONIGHT
Matt | On 25, Jan 2011
This is just a friendly reminder that the annual State of the Union address is coming to a TV or computer near you.
President Obama will speak to a joint session of Congress live at 9:00 p.m. ET TONIGHT. As always, this is one of the biggest speeches that the president gives each year. It will appear on every major TV channel that your favorite show MIGHT come on. lol…
The White House is trying to jazz things up a bit this year. If you’re near a computer, you will also be able to watch the speech live on the enhanced version White House website.
During the State of the Union address, you’ll be able to tweet questions you have for the president and his team. Send your tweets to @whitehouse with the hastag #SOTU for consideration. You can also submit information via their Facebook page and web form.
Directly after the speech, there will be a live “Open for Questions” web event where you can ask White House officials in real time about your concerns. Here are the participants for the event:
- Brian Deese, Deputy Director of the National Economic Council
- Roberto Rodriguez, Special Assistant to the President for Education Policy
- David Simas, Director and Aide to the Senior Advisor
- Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications
(Thanks to Pamela Kirkland of POTUS 130 on Sirius/XM for the post-SOTU info).
Sidenote: I will be live tweeting the SOTU speech from our Twitter page. If you’re on there, make sure you’re following @PruneJuiceMedia. In addition, there will also be regular posts on the site following the event.
