Cheap Tricks, Live
If there are better words to describe President Obama's speech tonight on Iraq than the ones that Peter Robinson here
uses, "Incoherent, Grudging, and Disgraceful," I cannot imagine that they could add much to nailing the substance of the discussion. Indeed, Robinson strikes me as dead on in his description of the speech. Yes, it was nicely delivered. Yes, the President was careful to hit all the right chords and appear the unifier. But this act of the President's in which he seems to unite when his real object is political division and conquest is getting tired and, what's worse, it's transparent. If anyone still believes that President Obama has anything in his heart but contempt for those who take a different view of events than he does, this insult of a speech ought to serve as exhibit A in the evidence pool.
