    you are wise beyond your years Golden but the Prez should have shown that he had brass ones earlier on. The opposition used the emotional BS and lies and Astro-Turf very well in the town halls .. I think that the opposition did a not damage and there may not be enough momentum

    Re: Presidential Address

    There was a far more compelling, inspiring, truly American story going on in Flushing Meadows at the same time as the speech, so I was watching ESPN2. From what I read of the speech, I'm glad I was.

    Reads like Bush's speeches on the lead-up to the Iraq invasion.

    Obama heckled by GOP during speech: 'You lie!' - Yahoo! News

    In a statement, Wilson said later that he regretted the incident.

    "This evening I let my emotions get the best of me," Wilson said. "While I disagree with the president's statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the president for this lack of civility."

    That is absolutely loony. He told congressmen if they lied about what is in the plan, say, claiming it will kill your grandma, they will call out for your lie. Calling people out for lying is not a violation of the 1st Amendment. In fact, your arguing that he can't call people out for lying if anything is a violation of the first amendment.

    Secondly, Peggy Noonan wrote Reagan's speeches.

    Your blind hatred is impairing reason and rationalness on your part.

    Noonan also always struck me as a better public speaker than Reagan.

    Countess Noonan is about the classiest woman that has ever set foot in Washington.

    I have soft spots for Nancy Reagan and Mary Matelin myself, though Noonan is definitely quality.
