Skip to comments.President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address Suddenly Appears to Be ‘Off’ — For Now
Posted on 02/25/2021 8:02:22 AM PST by SeekAndFind
President Joe Biden was expected to have given his first State of the Union address by now.
Although the mainstream press is issuing “fact checks” to dispute the claim Biden was supposed to have had one by February 20th, the AP earlier reported that he was supposed to have had one by… *checks calendar*… yesterday.
“US President Joe Biden is expected to deliver the annual State of the Union address on 23 February 2021 (date is still to be confirmed),” the Associated Press reported.
It is indisputable that the president can have the SOTU address whenever he or she wants. Or none at all, like Jimmy Carter chose in 1977. Or even submitted in writing, as the same president did in 1981.
But Biden will soon be running upon the longest period of time in the last three decades for a president to wait to give his first State of the Union Address.
The first State of the Union addresses by presidential term since 1981:
Thus, if Joe Biden doesn’t give his State of the Union before Sunday, he will have eclipsed the modern timeline for presidents to give their first State of the Union Address.
A check of his presidential calendar gives no details on when a State of the Union may be forthcoming. America is in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic, fallout from the Capitol riots, a Texas disaster, and other major emergencies. The Biden administration has issued an unprecedented flurry of executive orders, many of them highly controversial.
There are questions that Americans want answers to from their current Commander-in-Chief. And yet, the State of the Union appears to be “confused.”
There has been recent speculation about Biden giving the State of the Union online, most of it related to his believed physical capacity to give one.
Why hasn't Biden given a State of the Union address?

When is Biden going to deliver a State of the Union? Isn’t that typically done…like now?

Joe Biden isn't giving a State of The Union address because his brain is mush.

Has Resident Biden given his “State of the Union” address yet?
Oh wait, that was supposed to be yesterday? Is Sucky Psaki gonna circle back on why this didn’t happen? 🤔 (Like anyone would watch).
President Trump will be speaking to the nation this Sunday at the CPAC. 🇺🇸

No wonder they are putting off the State of the Union.

“Sucky Psaki” HA! I like that...
She will ‘circle back’.
That’s because he would drool all over himself on
National TV. His handlers are hiding him.
Maybe the state of his diapers and his noggen full of oatmeal is playing a role? We don’t have a President. We have rulers. Sotu is Sh&&. No need to have a pathological liar in front of the mic drill that fact into our skulls.
My guess is that he will do it in writing.
There is only a downside. Probably wont happen.
Presidents don’t typically give “State of the Union” addresses their first year office, though they do address Congress in a similar fashion.
The Democrats can continue to use COVID as an excuse to hide why Biden cannot give the address.
“President” Joe Stolen will NEVER deliver a “State of the Union” address.
Partly because he could not be relied upon to deliver it without a series of major gaffes, and perhaps mostly because he shall not be in office all that much longer.
In that kind of forum - he will show the world his dementia, frailty and utter incompetence.
The solution will be that “due to Covid19 precautions” - Joe Biden will give a “state of the union broadcast” from his basement. It can be edited and spliced however his handlers deem necessary.
My thinking is that they will use Biden and executive orders to get as much of their agenda done before he has to “retire” because of health. That way Harris can later say it is not her fault Biden did it.
and the media will cover for both.
“My guess is that he will do it in writing.”
Yeah...Covid and all.
State of the Union... in Biden’s mind why give a speech? It’s well known the Union won and the South lost.
