Boehner invites Obama to give State of the Union address Feb. 12

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, formally invited President Obama on Friday to address a joint session of Congress for his State of the Union Address Feb. 12.

"Our nation continues to face immense challenges, and the American people expect us to work together in the new year to find meaningful solutions," the speaker writes. "This will require a willingness to seek common ground as well as presidential leadership. For that reason, the Congress and the Nation would welcome an opportunity to hear your plan and specific solutions for addressing America’s great challenges."

Obama will also speak to the nation in his inaugural address Jan. 21.

A very reluctant invitation from the most pessimistic leader on the American stage to the most optimistic leader on global stage. It is not only Americans who want hear this State of the Union address. People of the world also want to hear America's view on the State of the World - Middle East, Climate Change, Space Research, Religious Freedom, Arms Control, and International Cooperation for World Peace.
