How does the speaker of the house ever become president if a new vice-president is always appointed?
Presidential succession assumes that the offices above the individual are all vacant at the time. (An example is that there was no Vice President immediately after Spiro Agnew resigned in 1973. So the Speaker of the house would have become President if Nixon had suddenly died or been incapacitated.)…. ==. The Speaker of the House does not become Vice President (unless he runs for the office and is elected or he is appointed by the President and confirmed by Congress to fill a vacancy). Gerald Ford was not Speaker of the House. He was the Republican Minority Leader at the time he was appointed to fill the vacancy left by Spiro Agnew.. The Speaker of the House would become President if there were no Vice President who was willing and able to serve as President. If the Vice President resigns or dies, it can take time to appoint a new VP and to confirm him or her in Congress. If anything should happen to the President during this time, the Speaker would be next in line. Also, if some tragedy should occur that would take the lives of both the President and Vice President at the same time, the Speaker would take over.. Please refer to the 25th amendment to the Constitution for details on how a New Vice President is appointed. (related link). (MORE)

The Vice President, Joe Biden, and the House Speaker, John Boehner,sit behind the President during the State of Union Address.
There is no set person. The Constitution requires that the President shall inform the Congress of the "state of the Union". It doesn't have to be a speech, and it doesn't have to be every year. The habit of the formal "state of the union" speech has come from television! About 20 years ago, the o…pposition party in Congress noted that the President always got prime time for the SOTU speech, and demanded "equal time". This was seen as fair since the President's speech was more political than functional. Since then, a member of the opposition party has been traditionally given some time to make its point in response to the SOTU speech. Too frequently, the President has used the SOTU as just another campaign speech rather than really reporting to Congress on the current state of the country. (MORE)

The President pro tempore of the Senate. There's a list detailing the 18 possible sucessors of the President, in order of who would go first.
John Boehner became the Speaker of the House of Representatives in January 2011. Joseph Biden is currently the vice president.
The president is required to give Congress information about the state of the unions from time to time but he could probably skip it for awhile with no effects except a lot of questions and negative comments from his detractors. He could certainly send a written message to Congress instead of making… a speech. Actually I think Presidents all very much welcome the chance to speak with national coverage- they would not skip for the world! (MORE)
He is not... he heads the senate but does not have a vote unless it comes down to a tie breaker.. today to pass a bill you need 60% of votes therefor the vice president is no longer breaks a tie.. The speaker of the house is differently the second most powerful person.. he introduces bills onto the …floor and pursues his party to side together on issues.. The speaker is the most powerful figure in the house of rep.. The VP is has no true power he only awaits the possibility of taking of as president therefor the speaker wins by far. (MORE)

Not likely . If the president dies, the VP would become the president and he would nominate someone to be the new vice president. He would choose someone from his own party and the Congress would not likely reject a nominee just because he was from the same party as the president. If his nominee was… rejected he could keep submitting names until he found someone Congress would agree to. (MORE)

Why is the speaker of the house next in line for presidency if both president and vice president die?
I read that when the Presidential Succession Act was drafted in the late 1940s, President Truman thought that elected officials should be at the top of the list rather than presidential appointees. Ironically, about 20 years later the Constitution was amended giving the president the power to appoin…t a vice president in the event of a mid-term vacancy in the office. However, vice-presidential nominees in this case require the approval of both Houses of Congress, while Cabinet nominees require the approval of only the Senate. In the same article I remember reading that the reason that the House Speaker is listed ahead of the Senate President Pro Tempore is that either Truman or the author of the bill did not like the person who was Senate President Pro Tempore at that time.
