I don't usually indulge in immediate commentary like this.
I've had way more than my share of "disappointments"with The President's style, but I just have to say that I am blown away by the mastery of the speech I just watched. Several times the thought crossed my mind that I was watching history being made.
He took it to them and didn't miss a cue, and yet there was no way to refute a thing he said. I am truly in awe of this speech, and I have watched a few.
I will also refrain from displaying my political acumen and incisive cynicism by shutting up now.
Yes, I took a drink every time he mentioned America.
Thank you for listening
