Snow: Bush will not 'cease to be bold'
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said Monday President Bush will not shy away from proposing bold initiatives in his annual State of the Union address Tuesday night.
"The president is going to offer some bold proposals that Congress could, in fact, enact and in the process make itself look good - and more importantly - do the people's business," Snow told reporters during a White House briefing. "So, George W. Bush as a president is not someone who is going to cease to be bold because right now the people are concerned about the progress of the war."
Tuesday's State of the Union will be the first time Bush has delivered the annual address in front of a Democratically controlled Congress.
