Following his State of the Union address on Tuesday, President Obama will be hosting a Google+ Hangout this afternoon to take questions from ordinary Americans.
The event will take place at 4:50 p.m. ET and will be live on WhiteHouse.gov, YouTube.com/WhiteHouse, and the White House Google+ page. The White House webpage has a link for submitting questions to this latest “Fireside Hangout.”
This hangout will take place after the President’s visit to Decatur, GA to talk about education issues. This is the second of three SOTU follow-up trips Obama has scheduled to discuss issues brought up during the speech. He’ll be speaking today at a preschool center; he’s proposing a Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership program.
Universal preschool was one of many areas that President Obama discussed the other day. We round up nine of them here. He was in Asheville, NC yesterday to talk about jobs.
Separately but related, Deadline Hollywood reports that the ratings for the State of the Union address were down 11.3 percent from 2012 to 37.3 million viewers. The all-time low was President Clinton’s 1993 address, which had about 31.5 million viewers.
