One Story, Three Ways: The State of the Union

Tons of you commented with us live last night during President Bush's last State of the Union. A two-term president's last SOTU is usually a little awkward given that everyone's attention is glued to finding his replacement, and the short period of time he has to execute any big changes. Last night was no exception. Here are three takes on the speech, the morning after.

  • Canada's National Post focused on Bush's optimistic message regarding progress in Iraq.



  • The Christian Science Monitor called out Bush's aggressive challenges that put Congress in the driver's seat.


  • And from the Los Angeles Times, a sly headline indicating perhaps what they may have liked to have heard last night?

A mixed bag of coverage to be sure. Many also pointed out Bush's "lame-duck" status and struggle for relevancy. Do you think even the positive headlines had an undertone of criticism? Did Bush overstate the positives last night?

I definitely think that Bush was way too positive in his SOTU speech. More than anything, I admire a realistic politician, and even though the United States is far from becoming a weak global power, things aren't all sunshine and roses. Bush played it off like no one knows the truth, and that upset me a little.
