Tune in at 4:50 ET
This morning, we asked for your response to the State of the Union. In just a few hours, President Obama is going to sit down with a group of Americans for a conversation about that speech and his plan to create jobs and strengthen the middle class.
And you should watch it live:
The President will talk to Americans from all over the country in a Google+ Hangout. He’ll also take and answer questions that people like you have submitted and voted for.
It should be a great conversation, so be sure to tune in.
President Obama Answers Your Questions
This afternoon, February 14th at 4:50 p.m. EST, President Obama will sit down with Americans from all across the country for a “Fireside Hangout” – our 21st century take on Franklin D. Roosevelt’s fireside chats. The President will join a live, completely virtual interview from nowhere other than the Roosevelt Room in the White House’s West Wing.
Open for Questions: The State of the Union and the Economy
Alan Krueger, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, answered questions from the public about President Obama’s State of the Union Address in an “Open for Questions” session moderated by Yahoo! Finance.

How’d you like to go to Washington?
We’re bringing two people to our Winter Meeting, February 22-24, and I’d love for it to be you.
This is where it all starts and you won’t want to miss it. It’s where we form our plans for winning big in Virginia and New Jersey. We’re working out our strategy, deciding on tactics and laying the groundwork for victory.
Oh, and we’re going to have fun, too. Our Chair’s Dinner is at the incredible Newseum; if you’ve never been, you have to see it. Plus, we’ve got celebrity chefs (I can’t say who!) lined up for our Taste of America Gala.
All you have to do is enter for free by February 17. We’ll take care of the rest. So hurry and enter your name. I hope you can make it.
If we want to win in Virginia and New Jersey, we can’t wait to ramp up our efforts. Our opportunities will pass us by if we don’t start now. These races will be decided this November. That’s why we’re coming together, and that’s why we’re forming our strategy for defeating extremist candidates like Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia and anti-worker Governor Chris Christie in New Jersey.
We don’t have their billions – we have you. We have to be smart. We have to prepare. That’s what this weekend’s all about.
It’s going to be a great event and a beautiful time to visit Washington. Join us for it.
Hope to see you soon,
Chair, Democratic Governors Association
College Heights Early Childhood Learning Center, Deactur, Feb 14
