There's no denying it was a hectic 2014 here in the United States. We saw the rise of ISIS, dealt with an Ebola scare, and witnessed the turmoil in Ferguson (and its aftermath). Plus, let's not forget about all of the hype revolving around The Interview, in which Sony was hacked.
Whether or not you're as up-to-date on current political affairs as you should be, you should still make sure to watch President Obama as he addresses the nation in his annual State of the Union address, which happened on Tuesday, January 20th.
To watch the SOTU online, just watch one of the embedded videos below. Enhanced features can be found on WH.gov/SOTU, and the second video below also has some as well.
Note: There is also a version available with Spanish subtitles (Español).
Additionally, on Wednesday, January 21st, the White House is holding its second-annual virtual Big Block of Cheese Day, where you can ask your questions about the State of the Union on social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr) using #AskTheWH.
