The Speech

I watched the president's speech (the historic speech, from the Oval Office).  Lots of commentary on CNN about how great the speech would be, how very historic, monumental, electrifying.

Then the pretender came on, standing at a podium in the Oval Office.  Standing at a podium?  He could have done that from any convenient hallway, or even a restroom.  I did notice that someone had cleaned off the desk.  Probably a minion, because he didn't want the camera's seeing the Sunday funnies.

Below is a transcript o fthe speech:

Yada, yada, yada, yada.
Terrorism.
Blah, blah, blah, blah.
Evil Republicans in Congress
Yada, yada, yada
Blah, blah, blah
Yada, yada yada
Peace-loving Muslims
Yada yada yada
God bless America
Good night.

I got nothing out of the speech at all.  Not inspiration, nor perspiration.  Nor solace, nor outrage. It was a nothing speech delivered by an empty suit.  A lame speech, delivered by a lamer duck.

So much for our President's response to terrorism.  We'll now resume regular programming.
