I thought that since I was going to sit here and listen to this--like I always do--I figured I might add my commentary.
- "There is no peace in retreat. There is no honor in retreat." A draw down is a draw down no matter if you propose it, buddy, or Murtha.
- Did he just call me unpatriotic for criticizing?
- Firm words for Hamas. Good thing.
- "Liberty is the right and hope of all humanity." Preferably by force.
- I like the talking directly to the citizens of Iran. We'd have had better luck there than Iraq
- Oh, yeah, the Patriot Act? Why, you don't need laws to do what you want, do you Mr. President? And then he goes into the NSA spying thing--fantastic. No one gave you the power, buddy. And I'm pretty sure Nixon got in some trouble for spying without a warrant.
- He's moving in the right direction with the Free Trade talk.
- Oh no. Tax cuts again. Permanent? Not a good idea. It's important that we continue to review the tax laws.
- Deficit in half by 2009? I think we've heard that one before.
- Line item veto--no. Earmark reform--yes.
- "Congress did not act last year to reform Social Security.
- Free trade and the American worker again. Good.
- But then he goes into immigration? Guest worker program? Good luck.
- Affordable healthcare gets applause from all.
- But he didn't talk about doctors "spreading their love."
- "Addicted to oil" doesn't get applause. The government is the most addicted.
- Last year hydrogen. This year ethanol.
- American Competitiveness Initiative. Sounds like a good thing.
- He almost mentioned Katrina.
- Not legislate from the bench. Just side our way when we ask them to.
- Cloning again?
- "The public trust." Yeah, we expect you not to betray the public trust. But that won't happen.
- He's back to talking about New Orleans and boy does Mary Landrieu look pissed.
- But no excuses and no apologies.
- End the waiting list for AIDS medicine. Good.
- Bold and empty statements at the end.
Funny stuff tonight.
