Jim Wright's thoughts on the speech:
According to a CBS News poll, 76 percent of viewers approved of the address, while 24 percent disapproved of it. Loyal supporters are more likely to watch a president's speech and according to a CNN poll, the audience for Tuesday's speech was the most partisan since 2001 making the results more favorable for the president.
Forty-three percent of viewers identifying as Republican and 24 percent identifying as Democrats. Thirty percent were independents, according to CBS.
Approval among Republicans was much higher than among Democrats, 97 percent compared to just 30 percent. Eighty-two percent of independents approved.
Was the theme of the speech supposed to be irony?
The achievements he idolizes are long behind us, fifty years and more, the works of other people, other generations.
This bombastic fool and his halting empty words and his transparent promises of unity and cooperation and I’m left to wonder, what was that “mission” he led off with?
You didn’t forget about that, did you?
This mission of America, what is it?
I guess we’ll have to wait until next year to find out.
