Obama's Speech

I didn't listen to it. I know most people disagree with me, but I cannot stand his speaking style. It sounds like he has trouble reading. He pauses in awkward places, and far too often. I'd rather read a transcript.

But I probably won't do that, either, because there is not much he can say which can make up for three years of too little, too late, if at all.

I also won't be listening to the GOP response, because it is sure to go way beyond the level of criticism which Obama deserves, and probably won't be based on facts.

I wish some Democrats had the courage to run against him. We can do better.
