“Mister Speaker The President of the United States!”

With these eight words, the United States begins its yearly political ritual known as the State of the Union Address.  This address is required by the Second Article of the U.S. Constitution: “He shall from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.”  The Address being yearly is merely tradition set forth by the college of presidents.   Also, it important to note that before President Woodrow Wilson, many presidents did not give an address in person rather sent a letter to congress, fulfilling the Constitutional requirement.  Tonight we will once again enjoy an amazing American political custom.  Co-Contributor Michael Burleson will be providing a commentary of our President Barack Obama and I will be providing the commentary for the Republican response by Governor Mitch Daniels (R-IN) and the Tea Party Response giving by former Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain.
