"John McCain likes to say that he'll follow bin Laden to the Gates of Hell – but he won't even go to the cave where he lives."
Err, I don't think that was a good idea. When I heard this, I nearly threw my wine glass through the TV screen. I told Obama something most unpleasant. I thought of my SPECOPS friends who might want to have an, err, discussion with Obama about their implied failure to apprehend Osama bin Laden.
All in all, I thought the speech had its moments, but on the whole was pretty vacuous. What was it he closed with? Something about having to move forward, not backwards, looking to the future and not to the sides and having the courage to...oh forget it. I have no idea what the last part was about at all.
