Live: State of the Union
Earlier this afternoon President Obama made an official State of the Union address in Washington.
You can watch some highlights of the speech above. You can also join in the live Facebook chat on The Whitehouse website.
The State of the Union address was put in place by George Washington in 1870 and was shared through newspapers until 1923 when President Calvin Coolidge was broadcast live on radio.
Before the address I mentioned you can find some good background information on what President Obama was expected to address here and here. And for the more adventurous there was the Huffington Post’s State of the Union drinking game.
And for some local coverage be sure to look at News.com.au ‘State of the Union: Barrack to the future’.
