SPEECH OPEN THREAD…. I’ll have more on the president’s speech in the morning, but my quick reaction is that this was a very impressive address. Obama had a needle to thread, acknowledging the scope of the crisis, but also striking a hopeful note for the future.
To my ear, the speech was pitch-perfect. He made the quintessential case about turning crisis into opportunity.
That said, I thought I’d open the floor to some discussion. What’d you think?
