For a speech that mentioned "freedom" 17 times, President Bush’s fifth State of the Union address also included some welcome, forward-looking talk about the need to break the U.S. addiction to Mideast oil, get competitive on math and science and the like.
The question is how compliant Congress wants to be — especially with midterm elections looming and Bush a second-termer with lagging poll numbers. Can Bush turn his standing ovations into enough productive action on behalf of the American people to keep the full Congress in Republican hands and the remainder of his presidency relevant?
