His father fought on the USS
Whitley in the Pacific, and his

President Bush used his last
scheduled opportunity to address
the State of the Union to call for
the country to continue on paths
he forged during his term.
“We have unfinished business
before us, and the American peo
ple expect us to get it done," Bush
said at the top of his address.
The speech addressed the eco
nomic problems of the last month
and unsolved issues from Bush's
term ranging from immigration to
Social Security to the w ar in Iraq.
Urging bipartisanship. Bush
began by asking Congress to pass
a $l5O billion economic growth
package as quickly as possible to
stimulate the economy in the face
of the recent downturn that he
deemed a slowing within a charac
teristically strong economy.
“If the economy were funda
mentally strong, we wouldn’t be
talking about a stimulus package."
said John Quinterno, who works
with economic policy at the N.C.
Justice Center. “The past six years
have not been all that particularly
positive for working families."

writer for President Bill Clinton
and a fellow at the Economic Policy-
Institute in Washington, D.C., said

*My responsibility is just about
everything with the campaign."
said Katie Baker, who is serving as
manager for student body presi
dent candidate Logan Liles.
While Liles has one manager,
the other candidates Kristin
Hill and J. J. Raynor are taking
a more nontraditional approach
with their campaign managers.
Instead of having one person in
the position, both Hill and Raynor
have a team of managers.
Hill chose to combine the
skills of two of her close friends.

that the speech lacked necessary
details and that Bush's evaluation
of the economy was “sketchy."
“Not only didn't he show any
real understanding of the insecu
rity or anxiety that Americans are
going through, but he didn’t offer
any explanation of how it came
about or an explanation of w hat
he had agreed to would solve any
problem," Kusnet said.
Beyond the economy, the pres
ident focused on messages that
have become familiar through
out his administration, including
maintaining national security and
winning the war in Iraq.

with Bush's direct statements con
