The Economic State of the Union augments use of conservative positions by prominent administrations such as Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush, while it espouses a more moderate policy with populist overtones made by Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy. In that sense, the speech is not purely conservative or liberal. It is an appeal to the two most prominent political parties to see more eye-to-eye on issues that have been plaguing our nation. It answers fundamental questions regarding our economy and provides common-sense as well as uncommon solutions. It is informative as well as exhaustive, while providing an alternative to the way government has typically functioned.
