This word cloud shows which words were used most frequently in President Obama's State of the Union address last night: "people," "new," "jobs."
One word that does not appear in the text at all: "poor."
That is telling, especially in the middle of (or at the tail end of) a recession in which so many people are hurting.
(Thanks to the CNN commentator who mentioned this last night. I doublechecked with a search of the text.)
