ABSTRACT
Offers observations of the 2003 State of the Union Address by United States President George W. Bush. Bush's State of the Union message was that he is not going to make the same mistake his father, former President George H.W. Bush, made in neglecting domestic issues after a war against Iraq. Former communications adviser Karen Hughes returned to the administration for the speech. "Tax relief," "employers," "mom and dad," "boys and girls," and the compassion agenda all made comebacks in the speech. Other trademarks of Bush's prewar electoral strategy seem to have returned as well. The domestic portion of Bush's speech had two overriding and intertwining goals. The first was to plant Bush back in the political center. The other was anticipating and preempting likely attacks from Democrats.
