So far, I’m nodding in agreement. We ARE sick of the pettiness and ineffectiveness of government, Mr. President, but I have to tell you that I am a little less hopeful about America’s future than you are right now….

I did enjoy listening and watching to the president. There was nothing he said I disagreed with. Now…will we see the fruit of his words?
I didn’t watch it. The AP this morning is reporting that much of it was same ole, same ole: Nice words but unlikely actions.
Out of despair (other programming pre-empted), I watched about a minute of the speech. I have said numerous times that I don’t watch televised speeches, and I saw no reason to make an exception.
I switched to a Discovery show about bears I’d seen several times.
As for President Obama, my view he is hamstrung not only the ridiculous mess our government has become, but his own inability to think outside the box.
Of course, lack of “party discipline” is a big factor here. Republicans have it, Democrats don’t.
I watched the whole thing. Surprisingly, I agreed with some of it. I disagreed with quite a bit more of it. On the whole, I had pretty much the same feeling as the AP successwarrior mentioned above did: sure sounded great – now let’s see him actually DO it.
