Bush Speech Sets Sights on Social Security

Yahoo Article Link



With The State of The Union Address coming up tonight President Bush has been rehearsing his speech using the teleprompters, as you can see in the above picture. The main topic of his speech this year will be, you guessed it, his magical plan for Social Security reform. Of course without his proposed reforms Social Security has enough money saved to give its stipends until 2042.

Other domestic topics that Bush will cover in his 40 minute speech include his energy bill, limits on medical malpractice lawsuits, immigrant guest worker programs, and his confirmations for federal judges. One might note that any programs dealing with election time hot-topic issues: gay marriage and abortion will not be discussed at all by the President. One wonders how long he can stall on these issues until the religious right, which showed up big time on election day, gets upset and demands action.

The President will then shift his speech to international issues. He will talk up the elections in Iraq, Afghanistan, and in Palestine. This will be his proof of the good he has done in office. He will also focus on the other two nations that he named a part of his "Axis of Evil" (No, this isn't from a Star Wars movie), Iran and North Korea. President Bush has no plans to discuss the withdrawel of U.S. troops from Iraq or Afghanistan in the speech tonight.
