Later tonight, just before President Obama strides into the joint session of Congress to deliver his State of the Union address, we’re going to put up two posts.



State of the Union Live Stream with “Enhanced” Bonus Info


The White House is doing something different this year, an “enhanced” live stream of the speech – more on this here – with charts, graphs and other info popping up to further illustrate what the president is saying at that moment.

Live-blogging the State of the Union

If you’re listening/watching the president’s speech in our live stream post, open a second tab to participate in our live blog, so the president’s words continue uninterrupted. We’d love to know what’s on your mind.

    The White House has released some excerpts, including this:

    Half a century ago, when the Soviets beat us into space with the launch of a satellite called Sputnik, we had no idea how we’d beat them to the moon. The science wasn’t there yet. NASA didn’t even exist.

    But after investing in better research and education, we didn’t just surpass the Soviets; we unleashed a wave of innovation that created new industries and millions of new jobs.

    This is our generation’s Sputnik moment.

    Other outlets though have reported the President will propose a five-year spending freeze, excluding the military. The Republicans want cuts and rollbacks. They also shamelessly blocked the America COMPETES Act renewal which they themselves had passed a few years before.

    In short, I find it hard to believe that President and Congress will be increasing investments in “research and education.”
