President Obama 2016 State of the Union Speech

In his last State of the Union address, President Obama took shots at Republican presidential candidates, expressed one of his "few regrets," and said he's "as confident as I have ever been that the state of our union is strong." (Sarah Parnass/The Washington Post)

President Obama has given his last State of the Union address in front of Congress on Tuesday night. Below is a transcript of his remarks.

Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, members of Congress, my fellow Americans: tonight marks the eighth year that I've come here to report on the state of the Union. And for this final one, I'm going to try to make it a little shorter.
