Had it on for a few minutes while I was puttering around the apartment. Found the delivery so dull and his manner so self-righteous, I had to turn it off. He seemed to be going through the motions, reading a prepared text rather than engaging his audience.
When I did watch it, he bemoaned the fact that businesses are shipping jobs overseas and praised those companies building new factories in the United States. Maybe I missed it, but did he express any understanding of the role our own tax and regulatory policies play in the choices businesses make to “send jobs overseas”? Did he propose reducing regulations which make it costly to hire new employees and to run a plant efficiently.
Let me know if I missed anything.
As soon as I find the transcript, I’ll link it, but did find this good critique (not of the speech but of the president’s similarly-themed Saturday radio address) in my first quick search.
UPDATE: Michelle Malkin has more.
