1980 State of the Union Address

The 1980 State of the Union address was given by President Jimmy Carter, the 39th President of the United States, to a joint session of the 96th United States Congress on January 21, 1980. He said, "At this time in Iran, 50 Americans are still held captive, innocent victims of terrorism and anarchy. Also at this moment, massive Soviet troops are attempting to subjugate the fiercely independent and deeply religious people of Afghanistan." [1] He is referring to the Iran Hostage Crisis, and the Democratic People's Republic of Afghanistan.

The speech lasted 32 minutes and 4 seconds.[2] and contained 3412 words.[3]

The Republican Party response was delivered by Senator Ted Stevens (AK) and Representative John Rhodes (AZ).[4]
