State Of The Union 2012: Obama Delivers Address (LIVE VIDEO & UPDATES)

President Barack Obama will deliver this year's State of the Union speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night.

HuffPost's Jen Bendery reports on what the president can be expected to say in his remarks:

Obama's third State of the Union address, which airs on all major networks at 9 p.m. EST, will map out a vision for boosting the economy and strengthening the middle class, based on four pillars, White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a Monday briefing. Those pillars are American manufacturing, American energy, skills for American workers, and American values. The president also will adopt a tone that ran all through a speech he gave in Kansas last month -- one that many are equating with a historic speech that Teddy Roosevelt gave in 1910 -- that carries a strong message about social and economic equality.

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels will deliver the Republican response to the president's address. Meanwhile, former presidential candidate Herman Cain will give a Tea Party rebuttal to the speech.
