Obama Surprises

Because I am routinely accused of Obama Derangement Syndrome, I'll say that the President's Nobel acceptance speech was pretty good. Karl Rove is right: George W. Bush (and, I would add, virtually every American President with the possible exception of Carter)could have given the speech. But that doesn't detract from the fact that Obama gave it. While there were a few false notes, the speech was well crafted and precisely what should have been said in that forum.

Now, whether Obama will govern in the way that he has spoken is another matter. So far, the record is, at best, mixed. But the speech was a good development. Let's hope he meant it.

I disagree about his statement of our founding documents because our founding fathers were opposed to dependence on the rest of the world.

If I recall correctly, they resented paying higher taxes to England to fight wars in other parts of the world.

You taking odds?

All Obama speeches are starting to sound the same. Delivered with the same cadence, impressive wordcraft, but very alike, very devoid of emotive conviction.

Nice to see you're buying into the hope & change mantra. Dad29 needs a bit more fertilizer.
