I'm not about to defend CEO's getting paid huge sums of money all the while the company is losing money but part of the problem is people not willing to either care or understand all of the problems.
I feel both speeches fit this description.
And judging by the reactions in this thread according to demographic, I'd say they were equally effective in rallying the people who already agree with them.
I don't think either speech was good enough sway people on the fence on the issue. They both came across like pandering douchebags to me, and judging by other people's comments and agreements here, that was how they came off ot a lot of people.
What I'm really interested in is how the commentator reaction to the speeches might influence views.
I watched the speeches on FOX like some other people did, and Shepard Smith's immediate comments about each speech were somewhat suprising as he came across as promoting Obama's approach to me. Especially his dig at Boehner right after he spoke regarding Boehner's claim that 5 democrats counted as bipartisan support. I thought he was blatantly biased in favor of Obama with his reaction, actually. I'm interested in how that will go over. Sometimes having one lie exposed immediately has more of a detrimental effect than having multiple lies exposed later will.
