After Obama's speech last night pundits said he would probably get a bump or two in the polls.  I can't see how.  It was a terrible speech by all accounts.  But, we'll see.  Today, Rasmussen has him a -20, close to his all time low.  This number does not reflect his speech. 

I have no further enlightening things to say about the speech.  Others have covered it better that I possibly could.  We had a gleeful time live-blogging at Potluck and reading back through the commentary this morning reflects exactly how the speech was.  Bleh.

Memeorandum has all the commentary and more that you could possibly need.

All in all, it just leaves me depressed this morning.  We're rudderless.  Adrift.  At least during the campaign Obama gave his supporters "Hope!" but last night he didn't even offer that.

Pat, I think "rudderless" is a good way to describe how I feel about our nation right now.

But, in a sad way, I think these jokers are steering the ship exactly where they want...right into an iceberg.

I hate to believe that there are people in authority that truly despise our way of life. But, fax is fax. Sigh...
