The President's speech

I, for one, was disappointed by President Obama's speech last night; it was downbeat and it lacked the courage to call the Iraq invasion and subsequent occupation was: A useless and ruinous war. I don't think trying to call for bi-partisanship is still something he should attempt at this point; instead, he should aggressively go after the Republican obstructionism that has – successfully – brought him down in the polls. This would be called political courage, but Mr. Obama is going to choke its presidency by trying to compromise and attempting to appease its detractors.
