I think Obama done good but something was missing

I think his speech was pretty good. Clear, succinct, to the point. He missed a few points and overplayed a few others, but mostly it was a good speech and right for this moment.

I thought however, that an essential ingredient was missing in this speech – I was listening for an implied threat of presidential action. This would have been the time to set up any future presidential action that might become necessary should the Congress fail.
