Live Blogging Paul Ryan's Address To The Nation

The people have spoken, and there will be no Live Event for Obama's State of the Union address.

Instead, we will have a Live Event for Paul Ryan's historic address to the nation on Tuesday night, starting at approximately 10 p.m. E.S.T.

But since we don't know precisely when Congressman Ryan will start, the Live Event will be turned on no later than 9 p.m.

We will have warm up entertainment available as we await Congressman Ryan's address.

  1. Any chance we can cover Michelle Bachmann's conservative response after Paul Ryan gives the GOP response?

  2. Yes! I'm glad you're covering something with a live event. More fun that way.

  3. What do you do with a Republican that voted for TARP, Stimulus, Bailouts and pretty much all big government expansion?

    You ask him to give the address to the nation, of course!

    Ryan is pure neocon/liberal lite. Just like his fellow Aspen fellow Marco Rubio. Hence the hype from the "conservative" media/ fast track career push.
