The President's Speech

In Tuesday's State of the Union address, President Bush argues that without a major overhaul, Social Security is headed toward bankruptcy.

On foreign policy, the president gave no timetable for withdrawing U.S. troops, but issued warnings to other nations in the region that he said promote terrorism.
