Obama Will Answer State of the Union Questions in Google "Hangout"
1 year ago
The State of the Union address is slated for Jan. 24
President Barack Obama will participate in an online “hangout” sponsored by Google in which he is expected to discuss his State of the Union address.
The chat will take place on Jan. 30.
President Obama is expected to reaffirm that it is the role of government to steer financial reforms in the time of crisis during his address to Congress and the nation on Jan. 24. His speech will make the case for his presidency thus far amid a divided Congress and likely look beyond 2012.
This is not the president’s first foray into political engagement via social media. Last year, President Obama visited Facebook’s headquarters and answered user questions.
