Bush has commander-in-chief call

In what may go down in history as one of the most important state of the union addresses, President George W. Bush delivered a message of hope and determination. Bush pulled no punches when it came to the war on terrorism and where he stands.

"You and I serve our country in a time of great consequence," said Bush. "During this session of Congress, we have the duty to reform domestic programs vital to our country; we have the opportunity to save millions of lives abroad from a terrible disease. We will work for a prosperity that is broadly shared, and we will answer every danger and every enemy that threatens the American people."

Bush went on to say, "In all these days of promise and days of reckoning, we can be confident. In a whirlwind of change and hope and peril, our faith is sure, our resolve is firm, and our union is strong.

"This country has many challenges. We will not deny, we will not ignore, we will not pass along our problems to other Congresses, to other presidents, and other generations. We will confront them with focus and clarity and courage."

Over the last two years, President Bush has seen how strong the American people are when they work together. "Some might call this a good record; I call it a good start," said Bush.

He focused on the war on terror and threat of nuclear weaponry.

"There's never a day when I do not learn of another threat, or receive reports of operations in progress, or give an order in this global war against a scattered network of killers. The war goes on, and we are winning," said Bush.

He assured the American people that the terrorists are being arrested and will no longer pose a threat to the U.S. and other friends and allies.

"We have the terrorists on the run, said Bush. "We're keeping them on the run. One by one, the terrorists are learning the meaning of American justice."

He then thanked the men and women of the American Armed Forces.

"Many of you are assembling in or near the Middle East, and some crucial hours may lay ahead. In those hours, the success of our cause will depend on you. Your training has prepared you. Your honor will guide you. You believe in America, and America believes in you."
