1991 State of the Union Address In a State of the Union address given to a nation at war for the first time in nearly 20 years, President Bush tried to reassure Americans that the U.S. would win the war in the Persian Gulf and overcome domestic economic problems. Referring to the years leading up to World War II in which the U.S wrestled with issues of appeasement and isolationism, he spoke of the necessity for resolution and courage to those already wary of a possibly lengthy involvement in the Persian Gulf. On the domestic front, he promised to put the recession “behind us” and resume “the largest peacetime economic expansion in history.” He referred to the Soviet occupation of Baltic states, but making it clear he did not want to forsake the working relationship the U.S. and the Soviet Union had achieved before the latest series of crises. Mr. Bush discussed health care initiatives, political initiatives including the elimination of political action committees, and a possible compromise on capital gains. close
