What was most interesting about last night’s speech was the faces of the various Republican Congressmen. I don’t think it ever occurred to them the president would come out swinging and woodshed them on global television.
The GOP – especially the birthers, anti-health reformers etc. – have been able to run amok in the press and across the nation for months. Just why is a matter for another discussion since much, if not most, of what they say is just not true.
The speech reminded me of Lyndon Johnson and the way he would woodshed people – only he did it in private. But he was never subjected to what this president has had to endure.
I think Obama made his points. He also put the unbridled right on notice that the fun was over while establishing himself as PRESIDENT.
In addition to outlining his health plan, he let it be known: enough is enough.
