At one point early in Bush's last State of the Union speech, Bush noted that key provisions of the P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act are due to expire next year. A noticeable round of applause ensued, exactly where one SHOULDN'T have been, if one was following the script. For a very brief moment, Bush looked shocked.
Of course, he simply continued reading his scriptwriters' remarks and the scripted applause of half of the audience continued as planned.
