Madame Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, and the First Lady of the United States:
Ive come here tonight not only to address the distinguished men and women in this great chamber, but to speak frankly and directly to the men and women who sent us here.
I know that for many Americans watching right now, the state of our economy is a concern that rises above all others. And rightly so. If you havent been personally affected by this recession, you probably know someone who has a friend; a neighbor; a member of your family. You dont need to hear another list of statistics to know that our economy is in crisis, because you live it every day. Its the worry you wake up with and the source of sleepless nights. Its the job you thought youd retire from but now have lost; the business you built your dreams upon thats now hanging by a thread; the college acceptance letter your child had to put back in the envelope. The impact of this recession is real, and it is everywhere.
But while our economy may be weakened and our confidence shaken; though we are living through difficult and uncertain times, tonight I want every American to know this:
We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before.

Was there a demand for the audience to refrain from applauding and cheering there also?
Since when does the “first lady of the USA” rate a salutation before an address by ANYONE???????
