I just listened to a vapid speech about bipartisanship that took all sorts of interventionist positions and was interjected with a few good points, and not a single well told story. The least effective presidential address I’ve heard in my lifetime.
He was testing the American people to see how far they would accept a speech full of abstractions with very little concrete reality discussed.
I’m a Paul Ryan man, so I liked his speech, but objectively speaking he gave an OK, but not great speech. It needed more flesh and blood. But at least he spoke about concrete things like limited government, which needs to be applied but isn’t hard to define, and the budget instead of vacuous rhetorical phrases.
That’s my view. What did you think?
