The Speech. In Oslo. Oh my. He didn’t apologize, as such. He spoke of a “just war.” Of his obligation as President to defend the country. As if this all were a revelation.

Ooooh. Aaaah. Says the vast right-wing conspiracy, in many and surprising places.

It’s all relative to what we expected.

We expected so little and prepared ourselves for another one of those speeches.

The bar has been set so low for an Obama speech on foreign soil, or to foreigners, that some crumbs of kindness towards America, falling off of the presidential table, seem like a hearty meal.

My reaction to The Speech: What’s for dessert?
