"Mr. Speaker, the President of the United States..."  
The general rules of this game are no different from any other drinking game. A drink is either a shot or a good gulp from a beer (or cider). Different events call for different numbers of drinks and all you do is watch the speech and play along. If all goes well, you'll be unconscious by the time they show the other party's response.
Fun game, although I honestly don't think I'm going to watch this year. Frankly Bush is one of the poorest and arguably most handicapped public speaker to hold such a high position. I can't stand the stammering, mis-speaking and 'bushisms.'  
I've seen Bush's other speeches, and his sensationalistic and self-serving lies aside, it's just a long, drawn out fear-mongering session with lots of patriotic cliches and buzz words thrown in. You know, the old.. blah blah blah LIBERTY! Blah blah blah, evil doers, freedom, justice 9/11 9/11 terrah liberty blah! Coupled with the fact that his lame duck ideas of discrimination against gays and privatization of SS, two things that he knows he doesn't have the votes or support to carry are going to be central themes, I really don't see a reason to watch.
