You watched the whole thing? That’s fairly impressive, as I could only watch it for two sentences.

the BBC news site has comments from the peanut gallery. some guy said “had that speech been read by any other leader, it would be praised and celebrated on every street in the world.”

i dont know about that. i tried reading it with voices of people i respect and like but even Jefferson’s voice couldnt make “What the Congress has given, the Congress should not take away: For the sake of job growth, the tax cuts you passed should be permanent.” sound reasonable or logical. [disregard that jefferson would never promote tax cuts and the ‘death’ of the death tax the capital gains tax].

maybe it would sound reasonable comming from Nepoleon. [with a thick, cocky french accent]
“I know zat some people question if America is really in a war at all. Zey view terrorism more as a crime, a problem to be solved mainly with law enforcement and indictments…After ze chaos and carnage of September 11th, it is not enough to serve our enemies with legal papers.”[hoi hoi hoi]
