It used to be that the majority of the president's rhetoric was directed towards Congress. They also preferred written communication over oral addresses. Tulis (1987, 5-6) states, “Prior to this century, presidents preferred written communications between the branches of government to oral addresses to ‘the people.’ The relatively few popular speeches that were made differed in character from today’s addresses.
