Which State of the Union Response Is Right For Me?

In America, you’ve got options.

WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 12: U.S. President Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union speech before a joint session of Congress at the U.S. Capitol February 12, 2013 in Washington, DC. Facing a divided Congress, Obama concentrated his speech on new initiatives designed to stimulate the U.S. economy and said, 'It's not a bigger government we need, but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad-based growth'.

If Pres­id­ent Obama’s State of the Uni­on doesn’t speak to you, don’t worry: This is the year of the State of the Uni­on re­sponse. This year, five (and count­ing) re­sponses will be com­ing from the HIll. Rep. Michele Bach­mann made the in­aug­ur­al tea-party re­sponse in 2011. Ru­bio was the first Re­pub­lic­an to de­liv­er a bi­lin­gual re­sponse in 2012. It’s in­creas­ingly be­come pop­u­lar to say something about a speech that usu­ally bores, doesn’t live up to many of the prom­ises it makes, and doesn’t of­ten sur­prise Amer­ic­ans with the dia­gnos­is of the uni­on (spoil­er: it’s strong).

Con­fused about whom you should watch after the speech to­night? Fol­low this guide.
