I know, so unlike Obama to diss America.

Via Red State:

President Obama ended the State of the Union address in a new way. He didn’t say, as tradition, “God bless you, and God bless these United States of America”

He said, “Thank you, God bless you, and God bless this country we love.”

A quick check on his prior SOTU speeches reveals he used the customary phrasing in past years:

2014: God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.

2013: “Thank you. God bless you, and God bless these United States of America”

2012: “Thank you. God bless you, and God bless these United States of America”

2011: ” Thank you. God bless you, and may God bless the United States of America. ”

2010: “Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the United States of America.”
