President Obama will deliver the annual State of the Union (that’s SOTU, to you political animals) tonight at 9pm. The president is expected to focus primarily on restoring economic prosperity to the middle class through proposals regarding job creation, clean energy, infrastructure and education, and to discuss initiatives for immigration reform and reducing gun violence.
The president’s speech will be followed by the Republican response, to be delivered by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a possible 2016 presidential candidate.
For those of you who love to get into the nitty gritty, the White House will stream an enhanced version of the speech that includes charts, graphs, stats, and other data on www.WhiteHouse.gov/SOTU. Use the hashtag #SOTU.
