Ed. Note: Earlier today, Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer sent this message out to the White House email list. If you didn't get it, make sure you sign up for email updates.
Every year it's the same: In the days leading up to the State of the Union, the phone rings off the hook with everyone trying to figure out what will be in the President's address.
We're now just four days out -- and the President wanted you to get the first preview of what this speech is all about. As always, he'll be working on it right up until game time, but three words sum up the President's message on Tuesday night: opportunity, action, and optimism.
The core idea is as American as they come: If you work hard and play by the rules, you should have the opportunity to succeed. Your ability to get ahead should be based on your hard work and ambition and who you want to be, not just the raw circumstance of who you are when you're born.
On Tuesday night, the President will lay out a set of real, concrete, practical proposals to grow the economy, strengthen the middle class, and empower all who hope to join it.
RSVP now and watch the enhanced State of the Union on WhiteHouse.gov this Tuesday night.
In this year of action, the President will seek out as many opportunities as possible to work with Congress in a bipartisan way. But when American jobs and livelihoods depend on getting something done, he will not wait for Congress.
President Obama has a pen and he has a phone, and he will use them to take executive action and enlist every American -- business owners and workers, mayors and state legislators, young people, veterans, and folks in communities from across the country -- in the project to restore opportunity for all.
It will be an optimistic speech. Thanks to the grit and determination of citizens like you, America has a hard-earned right to that optimism. Five years after the President inherited the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, our businesses have created more than eight million new jobs in the past 46 months, and they're primed to create more.
With some action on all our parts, we can help more jobseekers find work, and more working Americans find the economic security they deserve. That's why, in the week following the speech, President Obama will travel to communities across the country -- including Prince Georges County Maryland, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, and Nashville, before returning to the White House to outline new efforts to help the long-term unemployed.
You need to tune in on Tuesday -- because this is about you.

He can't get it through his head that he is NOT Emperor Obama...
Here is the link to the official SOTU webpage:
The pr*ck has nothing to say I’d want to hear.
i just want the dork to understand how he really is thought of.
This jackass is not an American president. He is a traitor and has violated the oath of office.
No thanks. I get enough spam.
“this year of action, the President will seek out as many opportunities as possible to work with Congress in a bipartisan way”
Lying piece of s**t!
Statist tactics from day one: create a problem with your meddling & tinkering, identify the problem and declare an emergency demanding more power to fix the problem you created.
And on and on down the commode goes the nation.
Biggest liar & crook ever to hold that office and that is saying something!
I hope those attending don’t forget to bring their duck calls.
So His Heinous Emperor Supreme Dear Leader will ENLIST EVERY AMERICAN in his "project" to 'resort' America.
Sounds like a draft is going to be implemented.
A draft into totalitarian MarxoFascism.
It’s what “community activist’s” DO.
Enhanced? What? Sprinkle a little Accent on it? Enhanced with interpretive dance and Schizophrenic hand jive Kill Whitey "sign language"? Enhanced with Smell-O-Vision?
No thanks... The experience of enduring the regime of this lawless, halfbreed, full on commie, closetted homo is enough and required no enhancement or augmentation.
Didn’t Dennis Miller used to provide his own running commentary?
This is America, we have voluntary service.
Or at least we used to.
I emit a pretty good copy of his sotu every morning
>> three words sum up the President’s message on Tuesday night: opportunity, action, and optimism.
How can anyone be optimistic when Obama’s actions have destroyed opportunity?
State of the Union: Barack Obama will have little concrete to offer disillusioned middle classes
“Mr Obama’s fifth State of the Union will focus on inequality and the cost of living crisis that is uppermost in the minds of millions of those ordinary Americans, but if the trend of recent years continues, fewer of them than ever will bother to tune in to listen.”
He is mispronouncing the word.
Acting, not action. It’s the year of acting.
Acting like he’s competent.
Acting like people believe him.
Acting like he’s a real President.
