Speaker of the House John Boehner has a group of invitees to the president's speech tonight on jobs that, well, speaks for itself. A press statement from the office reads, "Speaker’s Guests Include More than a Dozen Job Creators Who Have Run Into Government Barriers in Their Efforts to Create New American Jobs."

Here are the guests' bios, provided by the speaker's office in the press statement:
