    What's happenin Aberrant? I think it was pretty much exactly what was previewed the day earlier on media outlets. No surprises. Probably mostly directed to people that don't watch the news regularly. Wasn't good, wasn't bad...just eh. What do you think?

    'Sup, Sbu. First part of the speech I was not happy about. It seemed like he was trying to replicate Bush's selling of going to war with Iraq, talking in very simple terms that anyone could follow. By the end, though, I think he had made the case for the moral high ground in this case, so he won me over.

    It was good in the sense that Obama and Putin have managed to find a way to both back down and both save face.
    Their plan is genius.
    Now if only we can get past the Syria distraction and focus on Iran.

    As a speech, it offered nothing that the pundits did not already drill over and over all day.
    For one of the first time in history, you could actually listen to Fox, MSNBC, and Obama... and get the same story from each one.

    Fair enough. I hope it works out and that they know what they're doing. We really can't afford more perceived blunders on our Syria policy.

    Very Kennedy-like, but conducted even more brilliantly than the Bay of Pigs. Crisis averted and now we need Bama and Carter to sit down and talk with Iran, then come home and start working on what really matters: Education and Health Care...

    Good speech...but--Russia and/or Syria are playing games with us.. We will strike Syria. He has no choice now.. I love him, but he has screwed up royally... We should have gotten involved two years ago. When he made the statement that Syria had crossed the red line, he should have kept his mouth shut and initiated a surprise strike and talked to congress afterwards.. There is no way any weapons inspectors could go into Syria in the middle of a civil war--it doesn't even make sense..
