damn good speech
Maybe it's memory, but I've heard lots of these speeches....from John Kennedy onward (probably President Eisenhower as well, but maybe that's the point where the memory starts to fade) and this was as good as it has been in the last decades. I believe what he says....don't completely agree with all of his ideas (or rather the nuances of his ideas ... for instance, social security). It was a good speech.
I did not listen to the pundits and don't plan to. I thought the chamber was 'forced' by his skill and real concern to actually react to what he said and not so much to their posturing. Good speech.
Damn good speech.
