Overall Thoughts

By Bernie Tokarz

Speech was full of familiar rhetoric. I don't think he said a lot. Seemed to include many platitudes, emanations and penumbras but not a lot of meat.

He has made great speeches in the past, this was not one of them. The speech was flat and failed to address the major issues that defined the election.

I though the plan was this speech to be uplifting. I did not see it.

The bottom line is each of these initiatives will require a new government program, it looks to me like he has not abandoned the interventionist tendencies that have defined his administration.

His remarks on foreign policy sounded like an addendum as if it was a formality.

From the sound of his remarks, his tone has not changed.

Nice to see him socializing with the pages at the back of the chamber.

Waiting for Paul Ryan . . .
