The article reports on U.S. President George W. Bush's final State of the Union Address delivered on January 28, 2008. It is said that the address contained a dull and uninspiring message to a television and radio audience of millions. People say that the more Americans demand change and growth, the more the State of the Union Address remains the same. Though Bush touched various issues, including economic policy, healthcare and social security, he revealed few innovative strategies.
