Summary: In this paper we focus on the content of the State of Union addresses from 1983 to 2011 in what regards to State, public administration and public policy. The conclusions expounded here emerge from a broader research on the content of the same speeches during the same period. The main conclusion that arises from this paper is the existence of a rhetoric tending to the professionalization of the idea of "State", reflected on a vocabulary that comes more and more technical and professional, and at the same time, less ideological. Finally, we analyze the rhetorical peculiarities of each president, from a "pro-privatization speech" about the inefficiency and corruption around the State (Alfonsín, Menem, De la Rúa), to the return of the discourse about the Welfare and Keynesian State (Duhalde, Kirchner, Cristina Kirchner).
