Think you caught some words in President Obama's State of the Union debut, occuring more than others? Let's see if you were right.

According to one source, Curtiss on Althouse, here were some word count stats.

- Crisis: 11
- Bank: 12
- Jobs: 19
- Economy: 22
- I: 73
- Freedom: 1

Here is a retrospective on some past State of the Union word clouds.

  • Looks like a pretty good word cloud to me!

    Sorry I haven't commented much until the last few days...our littlest turned 1 today, but she was in for surgery a few weeks ago and I've been all about her for a while...but I try to drop in as often as I can.

    Cheers.
