"God Bless"

Was this the first State of the Union address in which George W. Bush didn't finish that phrase (written by Irving Berlin)? Maybe it's because, in George Bush's America, the "cause" that he said, in his peroration, "goes on", did not include the fate or future of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast.

In the Dem response, James Webb put the future of New Orleans up near the top of his remarks. Were any members of the Congressional Dem leadership listening?
