I read the speech on Cspan. And then watched and listened to him deliver a great speech IMHO.

Excellent delivery. Outstanding topics and points made. I love the fact that through every disaster he found the heroes and positives.

How those temper tantrum democrats refuse to clap or stand for progress for America is beyond me. It's like they truly hate the fact that black and mexican unemployment is at an all time low because perhaps the minorities will no longer depend on the liberal machine and carve out their our place in this country and judge right/wrong for themselves, and maybe even vote a little different in the future.

Great well thought out, well crafted speech with a lot of powerful imagery.

I like the way he refers to our service men and woman as 'our warriors'...I don't believe I've ever heard a President say it quite that way before.

I thought he was very humble, not nearly mentioning all his achievements in his first year.

Good speech.

Does Cory Booker always looked pissed off?

Good point. Id still would have loved a direct challenging stare down.

I commentted to the wife I thought he was purposely shining them on. Her response was he always speaks to the teleprompter on that side. Ive always thought as a speaker hes always worked the room rather well.

This Kennedy kid looks like hes been eating a bag of dicks.

Look out Oprah....here comes the young Kennedy! Dollars to donuts tomorrow they'll want him to run in 2020. Looks like a smart articulate kid though.....the next rising star.

His mouth would be better occupied than the shit he is spewing.

Could just be my bias talking but Congressman Kennedy's speech seems devoid of substance besides a liberal helping of liberal buzzwords and his theatrics are cringeworthy

Very likely. Does anyone else find it ironic that the Dems raise hell about the rich and then use a gold spoon kid from a filthy rich family to speak for them?

Probably that Nicorette gum. I knew a guy who chewed it all the time. Always looked rabid.

I turned it off before the commentary, just to let it all "soak in".
He reminded me about a lot of things I had forgotten.
Pride I had forgotten. Injustices I had forgotten.

Fuck those democrats. Their week, month, year is going to get a LOT tougher starting in about a day-and-a-half. Scramble like cockroaches you MF's.
