FILE - In this Jan. 25, 2011 file-pool photo, President Barack Obama delivers his State of the Union address on Capitol Hill in Washington. Is “strong” losing its strength? Presidents of both parties have long felt compelled to sum up the state of the union with a descriptive word or two in their State of the Union addresses. Mostly the same word. For many years now, “strong” has been the go-to adjective. Vice President Joe Biden is at left, House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio is at right.  (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File-Pool)
