"The government is finally doing something. They're trying to give the economy a boost. ... The Democrats and Republicans today agreed on a tax rebate. Here's how it works.

Memorable moments from President Bush's first six State of the Union addresses



_Bush warns that states like Iraq, Iran and North Korea constitute an "axis of evil" that is arming to threaten world peace.


_Building his case for war in Iraq, Bush says, "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa." Former Ambassador Joseph Wilson publicly disputes Bush's statement in a newspaper column that precipitates the unmasking of his wife, former CIA employee Valerie Plame. The administration later acknowledged Bush's statement was unsubstantiated.


_Of Saddam Hussein, Bush says, "The once all-powerful ruler of Iraq was found in a hole and now sits in a prison cell."


_Bush challenges a hesitant Congress to change Social Security because it is "headed toward bankruptcy."


_In an unscripted moment, antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a fallen solider, is taken into custody by police after causing a disruption in the House visitors gallery just before Bush speaks.

_Democrats stand and cheer when Bush scolds Congress for not acting on his Social Security proposal. Unfazed, Bush wages his finger and continues, saying, "The rising cost of entitlements is a problem that is not going away."


_Recognizing Rep. Nancy Pelosi's new job as speaker of the House, Bush says he has the privilege of being the first president to begin the State of the Union message with the words "Madam Speaker."



"You hear people say things that are untrue and unfair. It really hurts. George W. doesn't watch the press. He'll call us ... (and say) 'I hear the TV, turn it off.'" - Barbara Bush, who spawned W
