I thought the numbers would have been stronger; I suspect Obama has become his own victim in that our expectations are too high. We assume that everything he touches will turn to gold; I fear this might hunt him more than he realizes. The speech was very good and it offered a sense of hope. I love how he called on “ALL” types of people to unify and make this nation better. His best line, if I may paraphrase some here, indicated that societies need to turn against he evils of those who look to destroy and not to build.
