Obama’s speech at Fort Hood has been declared to be his greatest speech ever. Seemed appropriate, but pedestrian, to me. Now if Obama had spoken from the heart without a teleprompter, that would have been special.
I much preferred Obama’s “my pet goat” speech, when Obama delayed commenting on the Fort Hood shooting to give a shout-out to a Congressional Medal of Honor winner who wasn’t really a Congressional Medal of Honor winner.
Want to hear a really great speech by a Democratic President? Here is Jimmy Carter’s 1980 convention acceptance speech.
Love it. At least he didn’t give HHH a shout out.
