Following an extended vacation and a scheduling controversy, the formerly ballyhooed jobs speech from President Obama is scheduled for tonight at 7pm Eastern time. If you're watching, consider joining fellow NBers on this post for a live chat as it happens to comment on the speech itself and on the media's coverage of the speech.
No official Republican response speech is scheduled, however GOP presidential candidate and House member Michele Bachmann has announced that she will be doing a response of her own following the speech. It's not clear at present what television channels will be carrying her remarks. All the cable news channels are carrying the speech. You can also watch it live online.
Update: With the event over, the chat is now closed. Thanks for participating!
