The State of the Union in Words

Here’s a neat little content analysis tool. A New York Times link that allows you to search for any words used by President Bush in all of his State of the Union speeches. It gives the speech/year it appears in and the context of each usage. Just for fun I played with colors. Of the primary colors Bush has only mentioned red (29 times); no blue, no yellow. No green or orange either. One purple mention. White gets three mentions and I thought black tied that but that turned into three cases of “blackmail.” Of course, you can do more serious probes.
