Ahead of President Obama's State of the Union Address on Tuesday, USA TODAY Network looks back on his previous four messages to Congress.

Many things have changed since the president's first State of the Union in January 2010, including the occupant of the House speaker's chair. But some issues that animated that first address, such as the battle over health care and partisan gridlock, remain just as relevant today.

This video pulls from each of President Obama's speeches and weaves together a few recurring themes and some common elements to form one mashup of the State of the Union in the Obama years -- all in under four minutes.
