ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the State of the Union message of U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, which is primarily a political document written to maintain administration in the office. There has been a radical shift in the President's political convictions over the past few years. Complacency, unwarranted and unconstructive, was the central weakness in the President's message in 1954 and in 1955. Within 24 hours of the President's Message Secretary John Foster Dulles was called on to testify before an Executive Session of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and he was forced to admit that there was no basis for the optimism which the President sought to impress upon the nation which looks to him for leadership.
