State of the Union 2007: 8pmCST/9pmEST

I'm sure all of you are excited about tonight! What's tonight? Why, the State of the Union address by our beloved President George W. Bush! It's his 7th address as our president, our 6th since September 11th.

C-Span has delightfully made available to you, the viewing public, transcripts and, in some cases, video of the State of the Union addresses for the last 62 years.

I know most of you probably don't care, won't watch it, think they all sound the same (which most of them kind'a do), but if you do plan on watching, some resources for your perusal:

-My public blog-which includes the State of the Union Addresses from 2001-2006 and additionally, President Bush's address to the Nation after September 11th (on 9/20/01).

-The Wiki page (of course)-which gives a brief history of the address

-U.S. Constitution-including Article II, Section 3: He (the President) shall from time to time 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.."

-FootnoteTV: which provides footnotes and brief commentary on most of President Bush's addresses.
