Pretty much got it in one.
My general impression was this was a remarkably boring speech, intellectually and rhetorically. Not every idea was terrible. But no idea was particularly exciting, or all that significant. Because it lacked ambition, it was a far less offensive speech that I thought it would be.
I was expecting more in the way of sheer, raw fury on my part. Instead, I got… well, apparently I wasn’t the only one who saw his low expectations of this speech fulfilled. I just didn’t think that the President would be similarly wearily unsurprised at the results.
