Wow,
From the topics of Aids to the commitment of billions to hydrogen run cars, I think Bush did a great job!
Any opinions?

I was with him right until he said "faith based initiatives".

Best State of the Union in recent memory as far as I'm concerned. Bush was sincere and surprisingly eloquent throughout the evening.

I loved the quote...

"The direction of our nation will not be steered by others".

I really hopes he sticks to it and will do what is best for our nation in regard to the Middle East situation.

It would be great to see his plans turn into reality in the future. Especially about not depending on power from other nations!!

Wonder then, why he insists on steering the direction of other nations. Guess he doesn't like to practice what he preaches.

He read the teleprompter lines very well. And, yes, as someone said above, he seemed surprisingly sincere and eloquent through it all.
Over two years, he has lost that deer in the headlights look when he reads his lines.
However, his speechwriters did a good job on the Iraq bit. They almost convinced me. I'm afraid I skipped the earlier part of the speech. Thank God for Tivo.

Gary Locke just said "We will fight for affirmative action and equal opportunity." Huh? How does affirmative action create equal opportunity?

In other words, you're anti-religious. An agnostic would not be offended by such comments, only a die-hard atheist.

Yes, he read his speech from a teleprompter, as has every president since the thing was invented and his speech was written by others just as every other one has been...

In particular, I'm glad to hear that something concrete has been decided for hell that has been unleashed in Africa. The ability to treat 2 million people infected with HIV for less than the price of a single B-2 bombers is a bargain by any means.

It was very well done.

It was a fantastic speech and echoed the thoughts of many Americans. I am sure Stupiflied and the others will have some hateful drivel to add, but I was moved. Flame on silly liberals. I am happy to be led by such a great man.

Excellent speech. He told us flat out what Iraq is doing and what he plans to do about it and he seemed very determined and committed when he said it. As for those who didn't appreciate the mention of God, realize that our nation was founded on the belief of one God, and whether you believe in it or not I think you should be happy he's keeping our customs alive. Personally I was very happy with what he said on the subject. Overall, though, a great speech full of great plans. Now let's do it!

Superlative speech. And thank goodness he mentions God. Those of us who were raised in Southern churches loved the reference to "wonder-working power", a phrase from a great hymn.

Hey 174thfwff ,

Did you watch the 92' Democratic convention? Well, Bill Clinton quoted every verse in the Bible and espoused his devout religious beliefs. But then he violated every commandment in the Bible.

I agree that this was an excellent speech. It has redefined his presidency. The advocacy of up to $15B for AIDS assistance for Africa and elsewhere was very impressive. The details of Iraq's torture machine had to be stated. Liberty comes at a price.

Yup, he sure read the teleprompter well. He seems caring and affectionate on TV, but tomorrow morning it's back to the normal cold-hearted Bush. He and Rumsfeld are pushing a war that nobody else wants.

Well guess what, my roommate was only 8 and he watched it. Gee, perhaps someone who's been following politics longer than most might actually know something about what's going on.

Unfortunately, I missed Bush's speech due to moving equipment for MSU's honor band and an auction I went to were us Duggar guys were auctioned off to the Rice Hall girls to raise money for United Way.

You don't speak for me Cba, so don't say "nobody" else wants the war...I most certainly do. And most of the people I know do as well. Read the speech...understand what it is all about. If you don't agree with what Bush wants, then you have turned your back on the suffering of millions...

a mediocre speech from a mediocre person. his reasons for war with iraq sounded like a speech a h.s. football coach gives before the big rivalry game.

he barely mentioned that the economy is tanking (beyond b.s. tax cuts), how the vast majority of americans will get better health care, or how to help the nation's cities, and state budget deficits.

As some of you had said "The direction of our nation will not be steered by others". I think that's a problem for the US, it is saying that our future is dependant on our own people in no regards to the outside world, I did not see the State of the Union Adress, but I disagree with that quote.


I'd like to elect a president that has a Higher IQ than a retarted ant.
