It’s Winter! Brrrr WW



The State of the Union Address is an annual message presented by the President of the United States to a joint session of the United States Congress, except in the first year of a new president’s term. The address has been usually held on a Tuesday.   The message includes a budget message and an economic report of the nation, and also allows the President to outline their legislative agenda (for which the cooperation of Congress is needed) and national priorities. 

The address fulfills rules in Article II, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution, requiring the President to periodically “give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.”  During most of the country’s first century, the President primarily only submitted a written report to Congress.  After 1913, Woodrow Wilson, the 28th U.S. President, began the regular practice of delivering the address to Congress in person as a way to rally support for his agenda.  With the advent of radio and television, the address is now broadcast live across the country on many networks, and thus is also used by the President as a platform to speak directly to the American people.

This may be a loaded question, but…  “What did you think of our President’s speech/State of the Union Address?
