The Obama Speech

"For the world has changed, and we must change with it."

Bluntly, its average and if graded, I'd give it a "B". I sat watching for commentary from media folks.....but they polished over some things and went right onto the next topic. Remarkable? No....average, at best.

I think most of us were expecting that once in a lifetime speech.....and this just wasn't it. Maybe thats ok. Maybe we had too high of a expectation. The reality is....we really don't care about the speech and the guy could have read off Jimmy Carter's speech and we would have been happy enough.

So life goes on, and there will be analysis upon analysis of this speech...and "change" will be simply a part of the recognition of the speech. The only humorous thing is that by the words of the day.....whenever the world changes.....we change with it....kinda like daylight savings time, but better, I guess.
