A few days ago I wrote that I thought Obama was getting bad advice. After tonight’s speech – more evidence of that – I have to take it further and allow that he’s the one taking that advice. Tonight’s speech was so insufficient. So lacking. And wow, so short. Has a president ever before addressed the nation for only sixteen minutes?
I think the folks at MSNBC – every hair in place – were ready to do some serious and lengthy analysis. But they’d pretty much said all they had to say and shut it down after their own 16 minutes.
I’m almost afraid of the reaction. Or worse, the lack.
