President Obama will make his 2015 State of the Union speech tonight at 6:00pm PST and PlanetPOV will be hosting a Live Chat that will run simultaneously with his speech and the (now) three Republican rebuttals (known in some circles now as The Whiners Circle).
You’re invited to join the live chat here tonight and discuss the SOTU and rebuttals with your fellow Planeteers. To join the conversation or read along, click on the “Live Events” floating bar in the bottom right hand corner of your screen (if you only see a small button there, click on it to sign in then click the Live Events bar).
The previews of this speech make it sound like the most populist, Progressive SOTU address he’s given (no doubt the Republican Congresspeople and those giving rebuttals will be howling!) so it should be a remarkable speech. Our Live Events chat will be open early so feel free to join in as we ramp up to the speech. You can watch the speech right here (with enhancements including graphics and charts) and in the video window below:
Hope to see you here tonight!
Strong, confident and covering every issue that Americans actually do care about, I stood up to clap at the end.
His stares at the “dead” republican side when he pointed out their failings, were priceless.
Had to turn off the tv when a roomful of airheads all started to speak at once on CNN, and managed just two minutes of the “castrator’s” rebuttal, it was that awful.
Well done, Mr. President, and thank you!
Hey, guys. Afraid I was going to miss…
Nice touch, AdLib – The Whiners Circle. Wouldn’t that, by now, be a Vintage Whine? Just asking. See you later!
It is a Bitter Wine with a lot of dregs.
See you then!
