He gives a good speech. But so would any of several million people. It's not really that hard to read off of a teleprompter a speech that has been worked on for several weeks. Not to sound rude, but I think even I could do it without butchering it too badly.
There was hope in his speech and he touched on all the pertinent points. Typical political speech in that he promised many things, gave few details, and leaves the critical thinker wondering how in the heck he would ever be able to pay for all of these things. Of course, he knows deep down that anything from his campaign promises that he does not accomplish in office can always be blamed on the national debt built up over the past few years. That's always an easy, politically un-challengeable response to failure.
I had not idea that some hospitals still limited visitors to actual spouses. Do they?
And, if anyone can explain to me what in the world Hebrews 10:23 has to do with hope in America's future, well, have at it.
That's all I got. Good speech. Typical politican crap. But have no fear -- we'll hear more of it next week as well.
