Why? Because we already KNOW that the president is capable of giving a prepared speech in front of the teleprompter and sounding like he means what he says.
I’m sure it was full of fine phrases and promises from Don’t ask don’t tell to budget considerations, but he seems either unwilling or uninterested in doing the work of leading and pushing legislation.
If there is one thing I’ve learned about Barack Obama in one year it is to ignore what he says and watch what he does. He strikes me as a weak man who has a feeling of entitlement about him (Why it’s Martha Coakley!) so we will see what he does.
I have a job interview this morning and a repair for a friend this afternoon, so blogging might be sportatic but I’ll check online to see what people actual thought of it.
Update: I see SoS Clinton is with me.
