Obama will adress a joint-session of Congress tonight for a non-State of the Union. Ben Smith reminds us of then-candidate Obama’s response to President Bush’s final State of the Union. 

Each year, as we watch the State of the Union, we see half the chamber rise to applaud the President and half the chamber stay in their seats. We see half the country tune in to watch, but know that much of the country has stopped even listening. Imagine if next year was different. Imagine if next year, the entire nation had a president they could believe in. A president who rallied all Americans around a common purpose. That’s the kind of President we need in this country. And with your help in the coming days and weeks, that’s the kind of President I will be.

Cue chills.
