White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says that he doesn’t foresee a scenario in which President Obama’s State of the Union address will fall on February 2nd. He also added that the date for the address will be announced very soon. As for the mentioning of the health-care package, that seems unlikely in the near future as the House an Senate can’t agree on a plan.
Upon hearing the news, “Lost” producer updated with his Twitter account saying: “OBAMA BACKED DOWN!!!! Groundhog Day is OURS!!!!!!! (God Bless America).“
