Domestic security, foreign freedom and international competitiveness topped President Bush's agenda in tonight's State of the Union speech.
The president called on Congress to consider spending more to rebuild Iraq, fortify fledgling democracies, sharpen America's educational edge, and reduce dependence on foreign oil.
He reaffirmed administration policies to stay the course in Iraq and extend the Patriot Act.
And he defended warrantless domestic surveillance of e-mails and phone calls as essential to averting more terror attacks.
Bush asked Congress to take a bipartisan stab at 'fixing' Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
He also asked Americans to think of themselves as a "hopeful society" that leads "freedom's advance," competes successfully in the global economy, and renews its "defining moral commitments."
