Gene Gibbons reports on US President Ronald Reagan’s State of the Union address. Followed by fourteen individual cuts (counted in) from the address, in which Reagan portrays America as safer, stronger and more secure economically and militarily. He proposed four goals for the future, including the construction of a manned orbiting space station and an attack on the national debt. He says America is back, standing tall, and looking to the ‘80s with confidence. Inflation has been beaten down and crime rates have been cut almost in half.
