President Barack Obama will deliver his third State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress at 9:00 pm EST tonight. The speech is likely to run between 60 and 90 minutes.

Obama has said that the primary issue covered in his SOTU address will be the economy and specifically, jobs.

In an e-mail the Obama campaign sent out before the speech, Obama was quoted as saying, “Tonight, we set the tone for the year ahead. I'm going to lay out in concrete terms the path we need to take as a country if we want an economy that works for everyone and rewards hard work and responsibility.

“Those are values that brought millions of people into this movement, and they remain the core values that unite us and shape our agenda for 2012 and beyond.”

With anywhere from 43 million to 52 million viewers, tonight's address is as much a 2012 campaign speech as it is an opportunity for Obama to size up the state of the country and lay out his plans for the year to come.

PolicyMic has a live feed of the proceedings. We invite you to follow along, and we will also host a live discussion of the event. PolicyMic editors and pundits will be providing in-depth coverage over the course of the evening.

Obama's speech will be followed by a rejoinder from Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels.
