NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

 President Obama will visit McGavock High School in Nashville tomorrow as part of a national tour after Tuesday's State of the Union address.

The visit is part of his tour following his State of the Union address.  After the tour, President Obama will return to the White House to outline new efforts to help the long-term unemployed.
    
U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper issued a statement welcoming the president and hoping "we will all treat him with Southern hospitality."
    
U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn seemed not to take that advice when she issued a statement telling Obama to take a look around at Nashville's thriving economy and advising him that "our success is not a result of your failed policies."

President Obama is set to arrive at the school around 2:20 PM.
